Don’t forget that One Electric Day is making its way to Werribee in November. Basically what you get is a classic Aussie rock serving of Hoodoo Gurus, James Reyne (playing Australian Crawl tunes), Diesel, Daryl Braithwaite, Mondo Rock and Boom Crash Opera.
Hailing from the Netherlands, Sinister arose in 1988. They released their debut album, Cross the Styx, in 1992, and would tour with bands including Suffocation, Cannibal Corpse and Deicide. With the recent release of album number 11, The Post-Apocalyptic Servant, Sinister show they remain as relevant as ever.
Don Walker has lived the kind of life that is worthy of a book. He actually released one back in 2009, Shots. It is basically an autobiographical collection of smaller pieces that gives a small insight into rural Australian life and his time with Cold Chisel before they hit it big. There is plenty more to this man, however.
Olivers Army is a band littered with the music and ramblings of Barossa Valley-born singer-songwriter Ryan Oliver. It’s also the name of an Elvis Costello song. Ryan’s musical journey began around the same time of his travelling journey, with the aspiring songman penning tunes as he travelled North American as a teenager.
Where can you find yourself a good dose of country/folk, western swing and hillbilly rock ’n’ roll? Anywhere you find Nigel Wearne, a songman who has the spirits and influences of Hank Williams, Townes Van Zandt, Steve Earle, Bob Dylan and Woody Guthrie deep down in his soul.
