EdTravel through the career of American rock royalty, ED KOWALCZYK, as he pays tribute to the hits of his past – as the driving force of multi-platinum band Live – through to his solo career including the forthcoming album ‘The Flood and The Mercy’ featuring current single ‘Seven’ (out September 27 through Sony Music Australia).

Being just 22-years-old at the time, I was literally learning to write songs as I went, feeling and fledgling my way into this probability cloud that had formed around bands like Nirvana, Pearl Jam and Smashing Pumpkins.

Gang Of FourKillRockStar Entertainment, Tombowler and Tone Deaf present post-punk instigators Gang of Four in Australia to celebrate the 35th anniversary of their classic album Entertainment! along with all the hits that followed!

The influence of Entertainment! is still being felt in music today. To celebrate 35 years since its release, Gang of Four will perform the entire album in full and all the hits that followed across Australia in 2014.
