MADELEINE LAING | editor |

I like shouting and dancing, the Brisbane bands that’ll never get booked for Bigsound, and the Melbourne bands that sound like they could be from Brisbane.

Real job: I work at Avid Reader Bookstore in Brisbane, which doesn’t feel real most of the time. And do admin in an office, which does.

Now playing: California Girls, Bent, Clever, Sydney 2000, Pleasure Symbols, EXEK

Guilty pleasure record: All the Ryan Adams stuff you can cry to.

BEC CAPP | visual editor |

Hello! I am studying a Master of Art Curatorship in Melbourne, which means I can be wonderfully pretentious. Photography and music are my favourite things. Who The Hell is where two become one (I need some love like I never needed love before).

ROBBIE INGRISANO| ‘MAPCAST’ host

From Sydney, love music. I’ve successfully failed at succeeding as a musician in my own right but that hasn’t stopped me from seeking and promoting new music that grabs me. I’m especially passionate about hearing what’s going on in the DIY music scene overseas through the Music Alliance Pact of which WTH is fortunate enough to be part of. So much music, so little time.

Real job: I freelance in TV broadcasting gigs. You got something for me? Gimme gimme gimme gimme.

Now playing: Lovely Head/Teenage Moustache

Guilty pleasure record: T. A .T .U – They’re not gonna get us, not gonna get ussssssss.
