There is not much we know about the Groovin the Moo festival other than it is going another round in 2015. That and it hits Bendigo on May 2. So, other than it’s going another round and that it hits Bendigo on May 2, there isn’t much we know about the festival. Oh, and the official line-up drops on January 28. So other than it is going another round next year and that it hits Bendigo on May 2 and that the official line-up drops on January 28, there isn’t much we know about the festival.
While co-headlining tours are nothing new, every now and again you get one that stands out. Such is the case here with Darren Middleton and Guy Pearce. Ex-Powerfinger lovely Darren Middleton is enjoying a new chapter in his career, recently releasing his debut solo album Translations.
Warrnambool lads, Blackwood Jack are set to launch their self-produced, 6 track EP this weekend at The Loft in their hometown. This has been a long time coming for the trio comprising of Ben Cue, Daniel Paroissien and Talen Galbraith and we had a chat to the alt-rockers about this exciting milestone! Blackwood Jack have also given Forte […]
His name sure does get a good workout in Forte, but in our defence he is always up to something. Set for another touring adventure before 2014 comes to a close, Shaun is on the road with ‘Two Hands on the Wheel’, the second single from his latest album, Steer the Wheel. The newie treads country blues and features contributions from Kyle and Dan Lizotte from Halfway to Forth.
30 years ago. When you start a story with ’30 years ago’, you begin to feel like an old man shaking his fist at the clouds. Anyway, many bands took their first musical steps in the year we call 1984. Adelaide’s The Mark of Cain is one such band. Formed by the Scott brothers, John and Kim, along with Rod Archer and Roger Crisp, the band would have a reshuffle before releasing their debut album, Battlesick, in 1989.
Let us all rejoice in the Silver Jubilee celebrations of the one, the only, the band-name-defying super stars of punk rock … ladies and gentlemen, The Meanies. 25 years is a long time to be doing anything. Let alone punk rocking across the universe, always going forwards because they still can’t find reverse.
While many resist it, change is one of the best ways to bring in something new to your life, or even venue, and it’s proved to be just what The Grovedale needed. After joining his father in managing The Grovedale Hotel, Joel Taylor convinced his dad to reinvent the old sports bar into a beer garden fit for the laneways of Melbourne.
So, the ARIAs are done for another year and our congratulations go out to all the winners, and those who were nominated. Sia did alright, picking up the gong for Album of the Year and Best Female Artist among her four wins. Best Male Artist, meanwhile, went to Chet Faker, who also picked up Best Independent Release. Iggy Azalea secured Breakthrough Artist Release while Best Group was picked up by Sheppard. Those 5 Seconds of Summer heartthrobs took out Song of the Year.
Once upon a time The Oblivians were the kings of underground garage rock. Ask those who dig their tunes, and many will say they’re still the kings. Formed out of Tennessee, the band’s original run was between 1993 and 1998 and with their blues-infused garage punk they inspired a new wave of down ’n’ dirty garage bands.
