With the Moondoll Festival at the Mansfield Tavern only weeks away HEAVY will spend the next three weeks talking to some of the headlining acts to give you a taste of what is in store.
This week we catch up with Mark E from The Mercy Kills to talk about their role in Moondoll and other things happening in The Mercy Kills camp.
We start off by asking how long it has been since The Mercy Kills last played in Brisbane.
“Let me see, it’s been a few years actually,” Mark measured. “I know we did the Wallapalooza at The Wallaby Hotel a couple of years back. We’ve been up there with Everclear and Courtney Love, we’ve done a few shows at the Zoo with Deathstars and out at Eatons Hill but it’s been a couple of years. The last time was with Everclear I think.”
This year Moondoll has moved base to the Mansfield Tavern, also doubling its output by adding an extra stage. As such the diversity of bands and music has increased with a line up covering everything from rock through to metal.
“It’s a really good mix,” Mark agreed. “It’s good to see Frankenbok on there, it’s been a few years since I’ve seen those lads kicking out. And Kaosis. The lineup is very strong.”
Moondoll Festival is on July 10 at the Mansfield Tavern.
