real bad music is a store/venue which is open every wednesday 4pm-10pm and at specialty shows.

here is an excerpt about REAL BAD MUSIC from Samuel Meirs (SCHOOLGIRL REPORT) (whole article)
"His and Nicola Morton’s home Real Bad Music has become the heart of Brisbane music and alongside North Street Cafe the best place to play in Australia. You learn a lot about your own music from playing there. Matt and Nicola haven given many plants a place to shine that are considered weeds everywhere else, similarly to the people who come to Real Bad shows."

and a quote from Crawlspace's Shaun Prescott
"I live in Sydney, and I duly recognise that I’m an outsider looking in, but for me Real Bad Music is a neat symbol for some of Brisbane’s weirder music. It’s always being pushed away, both by the local councils that seem repelled by it and the rest of the country, which can’t get a proper grasp of it. And yet, there’s something appropriate about that ugly heavy commercial setting, and the purely pragmatic reasons Real Bad Music must function there. I, for one, can’t think of a better home for some of the music that comes from Breakdance the Dawn; its textures and MOs seemingly borne from the ugliness of modern cities, or specifically speaking, the decay inherent to our cities’ edgelands, a term coined by essayist Marion Shoard to describe “the expanses of no-man’s-land which have sprung up on the margins of our towns and cities”.

Here is a quote from Joel Stern (Skyneedle, Cypress Hill Song Label, Otherfilm) about REALBAD
 "I could see straight away that there was this amazing rebellious atmosphere in the underground music scene of not giving a fuck but at the same time also being really caring of each other. There were these gestures in the artwork that were really anti-establishment. However, not just the traditional establishment like the police or the government or straight society but also against the establishment of their own conventions. It was subversive even against itself. I think that tradition is really carried on by places such as Real Bad"
