"The stifling humidity and unrelenting sunlight which inherently comes hand in hand with residing in the sub-tropical climes of Brisbane can sometimes seep into the music band's emerging from the city's thriving scene, and rising indie rock stars Thigh Master are no exception.

Originally conceived as a project for brothers Matthew and Daniel Ford of Brisbane-via-Memphis psych-pop outfit Black Vacation, one allowing younger brother Matthew's songwritting to shine, the band - rounded out by drummer Patrick Byron - played their first few sets of Flying Nun inspired rock'n'roll underneath a sharehouse in Milton overshadowed by the iconic XXXX brewery, the stench of rotting hops lingering in the air. While many guitar pop bands tend to develop more easy going tendencies, Thigh Master establish their appeal through songs of apathy and heartbreak that constantly teeter on the edge of complete breakdown, with one hand always on the pint glass." - Andrew Tolley
