BRAINS!!! At 3pm, Sunday 25 May 2008, Roma Street Parklands filled with zombies that had once again gathered for Brisbane’s annual Zombie Walk. More than a thousand zombies had arrived and started their pilgrimage through the city. Onlookers stood back and stared, cars beeped and zombies moaned. Leaving a trail of blood, they stumbled through to quench their thirst before disappearing into the night.
Bloody good event!

The 2008 Brisbane Zombie walk will take play on Sunday 25th May at 3pm!
Starting at Roma Street Parklands, the meeting point will be at the amphitheater near the Wickham St entrance of the park at 3pm. After some mingling the walk will commence, leaving the park and heading towards the center of the city. Participants will then head towards Fortitude Valley. The walk will officially finish up at a small park on Ann Street just short of the Brunswick Street mall. For those zombies craving an after-party, the last leg of the walk will continue to Planet Nightclub on Warner Street.
The after-party is officially ALL AGES! Those of legal drinking age will get a special wrist band so they can buy alcohol. The venue will remain all ages until 9pm.
The cost for the after party has been kept down to a low $5 and the BBQ is only the cost of a gold-coin donation. There will also be other cheap surprises for those who attend. A cheap night out for zombie lovers!

If you’re into variations of blues, grunge and rock then look no further than the Sydney band – WALRUS. Five years of accumulated practice & playing the traps, has resulted in a fairly outstanding CD – The End Of The Earth Show.
I was comfortably ensconced in my computer chair, head thrown back, eyes closed listening to one of my partners’ guitar pieces, which I had nicknamed “floating”, due to the fact that the music relaxes me to the point of hypnosis, when the song ended and the bluesy guitar of Walrus’ track ‘WAR’ filled my head. Suddenly Roland Smith was yelling at 50,000 decibels “NO ONE GIVES A F**K ABOUT THE WAR. At this point, my eyes flew open, my heart stuttered, my chair scooted back, my knees hit the top of the computer desk and my derriere promptly landed painfully on the floor. What had happened is similar to lying in the sun on a hot summers day and then having a bucket of ice cold water upended over you. Profoundly Shocking! I stayed on the floor for the rest of the CD either entranced by the music or still in shock. I haven’t yet made up my mind on that one.
This music is so full of attitude and basic raw energy, that I’m amazed my mind (and body) is still in one piece. The CD has 5 tracks, the first being ‘WAR’. The bluesy guitar start to the song is soon rocked to bits by Roland Smith with the start of the vocals, shaking up the pace and feel of the song straight up. War will soon have you jumping up and going Yeah! That’s only if you’re not sprawled on the ground in shock of course.
The 3rd track, ‘LIPS’, more of a softer rock is probably my favourite, but might not be the song for hard core rock fans. All in all, even though I’m more of a Rock N Roll person, I have to admit that after playing this CD five or six times, I found myself enjoying it immensely. With their tracks ‘Corn Coloured Vomit’ and ‘Armageddon With You’, I can imagine that this band would be great to see live!!!
