Use No Hooks
Formed out of the legendary ‘little band’ scene in Melbourne in 1980, Use No Hooks traversed experimental and avant-garde worlds before arriving at an unexpected final form in 1983: a nine-piece disco-funk big band. Their track Do The Job was unearthed in 2007 from unreleased 1983 sessions, and included on Chapter Music’s Australian post-punk compilation Can’t Stop It! Vol II. It has since become an icon of Aussie punk-funk. Chapter Music is currently working on a full length reissue of Use No Hooks material, due for release in 2017. To celebrate, the band have regrouped as a duo around core members Mick Earls and Arne Hanna, and will play a special reformation show at MPavilion!
