Garage rock hydra from Adelaide, South Australia. Ray, Tom, Josh B, Josh H, Brian, Nick and Caitlin. Straight outta the mean streets of Adelaide, West Thebarton have been teetering on the precipice of greatness for some time.
In 2016, the band forged themselves into our consciousness with their self titled EP, support slots with the likes of Bad//Dreems, Cloud Nothings and King Gizz, plus appearances at BIGSOUND and Groovin’ The Moo. In 2017, the band recorded their debut album, released in 2018. Committed to tape over just one week, between day jobs, West Thebarton’s debut album Different Beings Being Different was recorded with Dylan Adams (DMA’s, The Vines); tracked at Twin Earth Studios in Adelaide’s southwest, and mixed at Adams’ own studio in Coogee, NSW. Greg Calbi then mastered the record at Sterling Sound Studios in New York City. All Photos by Jack Fenby. 5031.
