When it comes to music, few names are held in such high regard as Johnny Cash. Daniel Thompson has been doing a fine job of recreating the man’s legend through his show Johnny Cash: The Concert and now he is thrilled to welcome his new show, In Solitary.
Hey kids, put down those bibles because it is Groovin the Moo time. It’s this weekend, of course, and because we here at Forte occasionally like to be helpful, here is some stuff we feel you should know. Gates open at 10:30 a.m., with the first band hitting the stage at 11:00 a.m. The last band checks out at around 10:30 p.m. I know you’re probably very excited, but so are a lot of others, so please be patient.
Everyone digs a little stoner-swirl jam-psych. And because everyone digs a little stoner-swirl jam-psych, everyone digs a little Lurch & Chief. Featuring five manly men and one womanly woman, the band recently announced a little tour in support of their brand-spanking new EP, Breathe. For those interested in the recording process…
I am not a rocket scientologist, but it’s safe to say the ’80s were awesome. The movies were awesome. The music was awesome. Sometimes they combined, like in the majestic Cobra. (Spoiler: Sylvester Stallone cuts his pizza with scissors.) With a dose of ’80s Miami Vice-like nostalgia, Adelaide’s Jarrad Lee Jackson, who rolls with the name World Wild, released his ode to the skate and surf scene, ‘Coast to Coast’, late last year.
In an ode to his father and those who have fallen in past wars, Jake Jackson has released a new single ‘I Will March For You’. After losing his father when he was two years old, the only memories he has are those told to him by his mother and from the medals and letters in his possession.
You may remember the name Héloise from the Melbourne Music Bank comp sometime last year and proof that she’s a winner who’s got the goods, the young musician has just re-released her single ‘This Is Home’. It’s the same track that took out the comp for the musician, and it highlights her folkie vibe and earthy tones to a tee. Check out the clip below produced by renowned photographer and filmmaker Wilk.
Remember that time you kissed that girl right beside Mars, with the perfect view of the stars and all that solar stuff? Neither do I, but with a little help from the Stiffys new clip ‘Kissy Kissy’ maybe you can force your mind into pretending it happened. Done through the best cartoons we’ve seen in a while (thanks to Chris Edser and Jarrod Prince) it makes an entertaining watch while the Stiffys flex their new serious venture into the rock world. Give it a watch, we promise there’ll be no regrets.
While members of Offspring of Convicts hail from all parts of eastern Australia, Melbourne is where they connected. With its rich history of music, the city became the perfect home for a bunch of blokes who wanted to play rock music the way it should be played – hard, fast, loud … and with lots of jumping on the stage.
How many clowns does it take to make a hardcore band? Four. Hailing from Melbourne’s Eastern Bayside, Clowns released their second album earlier in the year. It’s called Bad Blood, in case you didn’t know, and it received enough good press to fill up a clown car.
