No. One Fan and Speakeasy   Fri 10 Jul 2020

We’re all too aware that in the age of the playlist, the idea of a compilation is a little anachronistic, but 2020 and the COVID era has given us plenty of time for reflection.

Introducing No. One Fan, a volume of our hits and misses since 2005, curated by a complicated logarithm combining the feedback of our dearest friends and fans, our most streamed and downloaded songs worldwide (now numbering in the millions) and, well, a few songs we like the most.

One exception, it includes a new single, Speakeasy, a never-before-heard studio version of a live favourite. Check out the new video on YouTube.

Although comps like this sometimes set a signpost to a penultimate stage for a band or artist, rest assured we’re nowhere near done yet, with plenty of irons in the fire for 2020 and 2021. As always, thanks for listening.

Isolation songs   Thu 2 July 2020

Mike has been recording live songs in his home studio since isolation began back in March, but the whole band has gotten in on the act as well. Here's North By North West, from our fourth album Kinecism, performed from our home studios and lounge rooms, with special guest Greg Coles on piano.

There are plenty more live songs on our YouTube channel, check 'em out.

"Don't Go Out Tonight"   Thu 9 Apr 2020

Like the rest of the world, we're bunkered down in our respective homes and doing our best to avoid this bloody virus. And contemplating what the world will look like on the other side of it. But for now we're still here, writing and recording, as best we can. There should be plenty of new music from Kinematic soon - exactly when and how depends on what happens with COVID-19 over the coming weeks and months. In the meantime we hope our extended Kinefamily stays safe and stays well.

And we'll leave you with this timely safety message - due to COVID-19 we've changed the lyrics on our 2017 music video "Let's Go Out Tonight" to something more socially responsible.

Kinematic Christmas Special   Tue 17 Dec 2019

Our Christmas special for 2019 (now in its 11th year!) is a reimagining of a song from our very first album Time & Place. December 17 is a song about losing your girlfriend in the supermarket, which now sounds like that supermarket is the last one on a post-apocalytic Earth. What's not to love? Wishing all in Kineland a safe and happy festive season!

Neon Helloman soundtrack  Mon 12 Aug 2019
Neon Helloman

In case you’ve been on our socials and are wondering what this is all about, Gordo and Mike went and did a soundtrack to a comic. But before you rush out to buy it for your kids, just don’t - this rollicking and ribald road trip from the mind of Melbourne poet, Michael Pardy, beautifully drawn by Portuguese surrealist Antonio Piedades, is not that type of comic. The comic and accompanying soundtrack are best consumed together and in full. But be prepared, this is not typical Kinematic fare - whatever that is. Find the comic and more info at and the soundtreack is available to stream now on Spotify and all your faves.
