RTRFM’s twelve-part series The View From Here concludes its first season with a episode of live performances from Perth’s premiere slacker rock buddies Doctopus.
Forged in the fires of North Perth and residing from their spiritual home of The Bird, Doctopus have toured Australia and the USA with good pals Pond, stumbled over the stages of Groovin’ the Moo and Camp Doogs and earned a reputation as one of the most stupidly fun live bands in Perth.
Earlier this year the rambunctious trio popped by the RTRFM studios to put smash out a 20-minute set in the middle of our office, including performances of Wobbegong, A.O.E., Feel Good Hits and Social Anxiety.
Doctopus are on a brief break but will be playing shows near you very soon. In the meantime, this is the next best thing to seeing them in the flesh.
The View From Here is a twelve-part short film series that launched in November 2014 with support from the Department of Culture and the Arts. The series aims to showcase the wellspring of talent in Western Australia’s music scene, across a variety of genres and locations.
This episode is the last DCA-funded production of The View From Here.
