The recent Isaiah Mitchell with Seedy Jeezus ‘Under The Influence’ Australian Tour was such a unique one that we thought we’d do a post including all the songs that they covered together, along with an incredible photo gallery from Melbourne’s Stephen Boxshall.
The idea behind the tour was to “give fans of Isaiah a chance to see him play songs that have influenced him as a musician since he first picked up a guitar at the age of 8.

I will level with you straight out, I was not familiar with either of Blackie or King Buzzo’s solo work prior to this evening but having grown up listening to The Hard-Ons and The Melvins, I reveled in the opportunity to see the front men of both these seminal bands in the stripped back intimate setting of Geelong’s Barwon Club.
