Live Review | Guy Pearce – The Basement, Sydney – November 19, 2014

By Meghan Player

There is a certain level of cringing that is associated with actors becoming musicians, and vice-versa. For the most part, the “music” feels dishonest, an attempt at another cash-grab – that feels about as genuine as a snake oil merchant.

For Guy Pearce, tonight is quite the test. Not only launching his debut album, Broken Bones, but also preparing to break down the boundaries of being pigeon-holed as an actor.

Live Review | Rick Astley @ Revesby Workers Club – November 19, 2014

Review by David Jackson

Having covered a number of these 70’s to 80’s artists over the last couple of years I am cautious when it comes to expectations. In my experience, all the hype does not always deliver the goods. Last night at Revesby Workers Club, Rick Astley opened his Australian tour. Everyone remembers Astley from the 80’s, young bloke, big coat, and deep voice. In the 80’s Astley sprinted out of the Stock Aitken Waterman stable with a few hits and took the world by storm. Five years later he disappeared or in his words “retired from the music industry”. Come the new millennium and Astley was back with a vengeance. But in the land of type specific pre-written and arranged music can the guy really sing?

FRANK TURNER Announces Australia & New Zealand Tour – April 2015

frank turner

Heading down under as part of the Byron Bay Bluesfest, British troubadour Frank Turner has just announced a series of headline shows across Australia & New Zealand.

It is almost a decade since Frank Turner went solo following the demise of Million Dead, the hardcore quartet he fronted. In that time, he has been on a constant upward curve, its momentum propelled forward by a mixture of Turner’s force of will and his effortless craft of song. Each record now brings with it new landmarks for the 32-year-old from Hampshire. His fourth album, 2011’s England Keep My Bones, sold more than 100,000 copies and entered the UK Charts at number 12.
