Friday, November 28th, 2014 marked a great day for rock n’ roll enthusiasts.
With the highly anticipated release of ‘Rock or Bust’, the 16th release from AC/DC hitting the shelves of stores worldwide, it was in Brisbane, Queensland that the locals were treated to a one of a kind performance being put on by one of Australia’s greatest pub rock bands, The Choirboys, as they performed the classic AC/DC album, ‘High Voltage’ in its entirety.
The Choirboys were doing a six date tour over three different cities, with ‘High Voltage’ being preformed on the Friday night, and ‘Highway To Hell’ on Saturday evening. Each album’s set was also followed by a great hour long performance consisting of classic hits from The Choirboys back catalogue.
With sales of over 200 million albums, AC/DC is not just the biggest rock band in the world. It’s a family business built by three brothers: George, Malcolm and Angus Young. And, as with any business, some people prospered while others got hurt along the way. The Youngs: The Brothers Who Built AC/DC is unlike any AC/DC book you’ve read before.
Less a biography, more a critical appreciation, it tells the story of the trio through 11 classic songs and reveals some of the personal and creative secrets that went into their making. Important figures from AC/DC’s long way to the top open up for the very first time, while unsung heroes behind the band’s success are given the credit they are due. Accepted accounts of events are challenged while sensational new details emerge to cast a whole new light on the band’s history – especially their early years with Atlantic Records in the United States.
Sydney’s ART vs SCIENCE have crammed the kind of heady ascent experienced by the luckiest of bands into a timeline that belies their few short years. From regional pubs to national festivals to…trains, the three-piece have built a massive following on the basis of two simple abiding principles:
In doing so they’ve become a live powerhouse; selling out shows, ascending to festival favourites the nation over, staying up all night and sometimes right into the morning and regularly arresting the eyes and ears of all who witness their peculiar brand of madness. Or as one international headliner recently squeezed: “how am I supposed to follow that?” Continue reading
TEN THOUSAND PEOPLE STRONG!
A massive rally by the Melbourne music loving community got together in a show of strength to protest against the out of touch state government’s liquor licensing laws. On the 34th anniversary of the famous ACCA-DACCA, “It’s a Long Way to the Top (If You Wanna Rock ‘n’ Roll)”, the famous music clip was recreated again on the back of a truck with the Rockwiz Orchestra and the original bagpipe players of the classic video. – Location: Swanston & Bourke Streets, Melbourne, Australia

The mosh pit at the Enmore theatre was packed out from wall to wall before the support acts – had even left the stage, and the seats quickly filled up. As soon as Kate Miller-Heidke hit the stage, the excited hubbub exploded into a minute’s solid applause. She lived up to her usual image – with freshly dyed hair and a dress made out of purple frills and silver tinsel. And, as soon as she started playing, everyone in the house knew they were in for something special. The whole crowd fell dead silent to hear her open with “Our Song”, a honest and emotional performance that Kate starts over her partner Kier Nuttal’s guitar before the rest of the band comes in.
Australian artists continue their reign on the ARIA Singles & Album Charts
In another huge week for Australian artists, Guy Sebastian spends a further week on top of the ARIA Singles Chart with “Like It Like That”. It becomes his second-longest running No.1 single after his initial career hit “Angels Brought Me Here”, which spent three weeks straight at the top in December 2003. Jimmy Barnes continues his domination of the ARIA Album Chart, achieving a second week at No.1 with “The Rhythm And The Blues” and notching up a solo tally of thirty-one weeks at the top of the chart. This is equal to Delta Goodrem‘s total, with John Farnham the only Australian artist ahead, accumulating a massive forty-seven weeks on top of the chart over eight albums.
Rock legend Jimmy Barnes creates ARIA Chart history
For the first time since May last year, Australian artists take out the top spot on both the ARIA Singles and Album Charts. Guy Sebastian lands the No.1 position on the ARIA Singles Chart with “Like It Like That”, his fourth chart-topping single, making him the only Australian Idol participant to have achieved such a feat. This is the 19th ARIA #1 single to feature an Australian Idol contestant in the six years since the start of the series. In the history of the ARIA charts, Kylie and Delta are the only Aussies with more chart topping singles than Guy, with a tally of ten and eight respectively.

||Corn Liquor are four hard drinking, hard playing, good ol’ boys. If only they had chicken wire up I’d think I was in the deep south with the good old blues brother boys.
This was the busiest I had ever seen the Joynt with wall to wall people, moving, grooving and shaking their ass off to some fine rock a billy style. The first half consisted of all original tracks, followed by a very cool version of AC/DC‘s Jailbreak
played with a double bass, not sure what Bon Scott would have thought of that, he would have probably had another drink and kept partying.
Eminem’s album “Relapse”, already certified Platinum, has held at number one on the ARIA Album Chart for a second week as Black Eyed Peas hold at one on the singles chart with “Boom Boom Pow” for a third consecutive week, whilst chalking up four weeks on top of the digital track chart.
Green Day holds at 2 with “21st Century Breakdown” on the ARIA Album Chart this week, and it’s the touring artists who make a big impact on the top 10 – P!nk up to #3 with “Funhouse”, Lady Gaga up to #6 with “The Fame” and Pussycat Dolls up to #8 from 17 with “Doll Domination 2.0”.
