Fractures Reveals What His Live Show “Can’t Function Without”

fractures49

Fractures is an artist that we all know and love. His tracks are supremely elegant and we’ve shared his musical journey in more ways than one. The producer loves doing live shows, as most musicians obviously do, and kills it every time he hops onto a stage.

The producer loves doing live shows, as most musicians obviously do, and kills it every time he hops onto a stage. He’s also about to jump on tour with the incredible Emma Louise, so we thought it might be a good idea to ask Fractures what he takes on tour with him and he was happy to oblige.

Laptop

” Live show wouldn’t really function without it. Great for checking out deals on my favourite sites (cheapsocks.biz, johndeertractors.org) while on the road. Have recently installed Steam so can play online games and kill Nazi’s which is nice. Stops me from doing it in the real world.”

Hats

“Primary function of protection from the hot Australian sun is merely an added bonus. I tend to wear these to draw attention away from my fat face but with the hope of still being perceived as ‘cool’ or ‘hype’. It rarely works. “

Regulation AFL Football

“If I didn’t have to waste my time with music I’d be kicking one of these red pills around Pagan’s Paddock ad infinitum. Ideal for counteracting the disgusting food that invariably becomes the foundation of my diet when away from home. Also go Bombers, thanks.”

Camera

“Again, just trying to look cool. I don’t know how to use these and don’t intend to find out but I’m a musician/artiste and it comes with the territory. Hanging one of these bad boys around the neck earns respect in an industry where it’s important to wear outdated things for effect.”

Guitar Pedalboard/Case

“Vital in order to achieve that signature Fractures’ sound that people aren’t so familiar with. I used to have more but they broke and I am broke so I work with what I’ve got. Such is the life of a semi-successful musician/artiste/dreamweaver.”
