Recalibrate is re-emerging in 2024 with lots of new material and new bass player Andrew Mortensen, from Serious Beak, Kurushimi, Slimey Things, Hashshashin and many other progressive and experimental groups. Our drummer Alex O’Toole and I have admired his music for a long time, and we can’t wait to bring this new trio on a small run of shows around NSW:

09 Feb 2024 | Wollongong | Servo Food Truck Bar | w/ Svntax Error, Your Loving Tyrant
10 Feb 2024 | Sydney | The Townie | w/ Rocket Head
23 Feb 2024 | Woy Woy | Link and Pink | w/ Svntax Error
14 Mar 2024 | Sydney | Lazybones | w/ Dave Carr’s Fabulous Contraption


Recalibrate is the new name for my trio with Alex O’Toole and Simeon Bartholomew, formerly known as No Mandate. The band is older than Covid and was named before people started shouting about vaccine and mask mandates. We’d played about 35 shows and made two albums under the name No Mandate, but felt the step was necessary to avoid being associated with this toxic debate.
