News: Patrick Wolf (UK) ‘The Bachelor’ Australian Tour – December 2009

The infamous Patrick Wolf returns to our shores, to celebrate the release of his latest album, The Bachelor.

Visceral, Impulsive, Antagonistic and Unique; the list of superlatives and adjectives for this young man and his music go on ad infinitum. Never one to conform to artistic nor industry status quo, young Master Wolf could rightly claim pole position at the vanguard of avant-garde pop. His wonderfully wilful compositions and forays into the glamorous aesthetic of leather, chains, glitter and feathers only exalt the kind of compelling self- awareness we find so irresistible.

  Lisa Mitchell, Oh Mercy and White Birds & Lemons played to a Sold Out Show at the Zoo on Friday 28th August 2009 in the 1st Night of the tour to promote Lisa Mitchell’s 2nd album Wonder which debuted on July 31, 2009.

4 piece band White Birds & Lemons originally from Devonport on the North Shore of Auckland, but now living in Melbourne totally wowed the fans at the Zoo on Friday night. Using an electronic drumset which you don’t see much of with live bands, they had the crowd swaying and nodding to their techno-pop rock songs. Playing songs from their first album “Who Says You’re Free?” and more, they left the punters on a high. After listening to their song “Gambler” on their website, White Birds & Lemons are even better live. Can’t wait for a new album to arrive. White Birds & Lemons were a good selection for the 1st band on a great night of entertainment.

Cannibal Corpse   What more can be said, in this Year Of The Corpse 2009, that hasn’t already been whispered, grunted or screamed about the almighty Cannibal? They’ve smashed—nay, hammer smashed—every boundary set before them, defied every censor set upon them, and besmirched every country that would have them. After two decades of unending death metal torment, the band’s calling cards are many: the depraved lyrics, the blinding technical prowess, the dominating stage presence, the legions of dedicated fans, the million and a half albums sold.

Cannibal Corpse are slashing their way back to Australia and New Zealand to skewer us as all from ear to ear in support of their new album “Evisceration Plague”!
