After 13 years of broken bones, broken hearts, sore heads, passive aggression, regular aggression, several arrests, questionable skin infections, and a busload of infuriated tour managers, Bluejuice are announcing they are calling it quits at the end of 2014. Before they shut the doors, Bluejuice are releasing a retrospective record, ‘RETROSPECTABLE’, which consists of hits taken from their three albums, some brand new tracks, and some extra special features.
We chat to Bluejuice to discover their favourite photos, live moments and memories on Instagram.


What is your favourite photo that you have taken?
Where was it, why is it your favourite?
I didn’t personally take it, and I don’t remember who took it, but because it’s on our instagram page that means it’s ours right? Anyway, this was taken after a Big Day Out, and I think it perfectly captures the cheerful hideousness of our costumes.

What is your favourite live photo?
Someone with a keen eye on the Triple J website zoomed in on a photo that showed our tour manager staring steel-eyed and rakish behind Jake’s grotesque g-string. Memes ensued.

What photo do you think best represents Bluejuice?
Like these costumes, bluejuice are stinking, damp, full of harmful bacteria, disturbing, and very faintly artistic.

What is your favourite photo that you have been tagged in on Instagram?
This was taken a few weeks ago in Brisbane. It’s an excellent shot, and is quite rare in that it shows Jake with a shirt on.

Who is your favourite person to follow on Instagram?
Our tour manager Boo showed us this guy last week. I don’t quite know what it is, or why it exists, but I guess that can be said about most things on the internet.
