Germaphobes - Fiji Whizz

The season's third Long Winter found a spot just a few doors from its old Queen and Dovercourt home at The Theatre Centre. Using both the upstairs main space and the main floor Incubator, there was music up and down all night long. Germaphobes closed things out in the Incubator space with a rollicking rock party. Bringing some joyfully ludicrous hoodoo howls, it appears that Neil Rankin has borrowed a page from Elvis Costello's playbook with this would-be title track that didn't make it onto last year's Fiji Whizz. (It also gleefully borrows the little-bit-softer-now dynamic from "Shout" to good effect.)

[Brandon Caswell Douglas got some sweet footage of the night which you can check out here. Germaphobes will be playing at The Luyas' album release party (along with Mimico) at the Smiling Buddha on March 11th. Long Winter ends the season with a return to the Gladstone Hotel on Friday, March 24th with music by Deliluh, Leanne Simpson, Protruders, Doom Tickler, Bonnie Trash, Bunny, HEX, Midge, Clamaglamza, Joel Eel and Sistem.]
