Pist Idiots Performs ‘Juliette’ Live at Enmore
Revesby’s finest, Pist Idiots is a band on an impressive trajectory. Dishing up a refreshingly unpretentious flavour of punk rock forged in the pubs across Australia, their melodies get into your head and take up residence for the long term.
Juliette, which appears on their forthcoming debut album Idiocracy, is the embodiment of the Pist Idiots style: a tune that effortlessly swaggers its way into your heart and one that you’ll be singing along to before you know it.
The four-piece brought Juliette along with them to their Live at Enmore session and didn’t disappoint.
Juliette was Mixed and Recorded by Dan Shaw, Radi Safi, and Owen Penglis
The quartet, populated by the monosyllabic monikers of Jack (lead vocals), John (drums), Joe (guitar) and Thom (bass), belted out Juliette with energy, filling the space with melodic bass lines, rock-solid grooves, and too many melodic hooks to count.
Frontman Jack described Juliette as “… a classic love song. It came from the chords, and the chords pretty much wrote the rest of the song, because the chords sound like a love song.”

The Live at Enmore series is made possible with the help of our tech partner Audio-Technica. Here’s a list of the microphones that were used to capture this incredible performance:
For dynamic vocal performances, you need a great dynamic mic. Enter the AE4100.
The AT4081 is a high-quality ribbon mic that is a perfect stereo pair for drum overheads.
The BP40 is one of the most versatile dynamics in Audio-Technica’s arsenal. This time, it found on the snare.
This little gem of a hypercardioid dynamic is perfect for getting into any tight space in the studio. This time, it could be found on the guitar cabinets.
The ATM230 is a small and easily positionable dynamic that’s perfect for getting up close to the rack and floor toms.
The ATM250 is a hypercardioid dynamic that can take a lot of punishment. It looks like a grenade and it’s just as tough — perfect for capturing the inside of a kick drum.
