Dave McCormack - News

Custard are playing at the Between the Bays festival in Moorooduc, Victoria, on Saturday 25th February 2012, and are headlining the The Gum Ball festival in the Hunter Valley (NSW) at the end of April.  The band have been doing a heap of interviews plugging these shows.  You can read a good piece in the Age.  Visit the press clippings page to view a heap of other recent interviews.  To keep up to date with Custard happenings check out the Custard Appreciation Society on facebook.

I have uploaded four obscure Custard videos onto youtube.  These include the band playing Pinball Lez live on Recovery, the b-side Umlaut at Homebake 1998, Singlette and Alone at RMIT O-night 1995, and Leisuremaster at a private party around 1998.  Some other people have been busy uploading videos as well.  See below for a humorous old interview with Dave backstage at Homebake.  Another recent posting is a clip of Dave interviewing Devo for Recovery back in the 90s, and Dave appearing on Fat Pizza (see end of pt1 and start of pt2)  Also, Dave McCormack now has a vimeo account where he recently posted an ancient recording of Custard's Brisbane EP launch.  And of course, for loads of Custard and McCormack videos see the music is crap videos page.

Back in the 90s, Custard recorded 10 cover songs for Triple J, which were dubbed the Shonky songs. I (Dave, the music is crap webmaster) am looking for a copy of these. If you have a copy, or know someone who does, please send me an email.
