Interview by: Dermot Clarke
DANDY WARHOLS guitarist PETER HOLSTROM chats briefly about the band’s upcoming Australian tour (2011), and the way cash and creativity affect each other.
“It felt like after we did Parklife we hadn’t really performed to our fans,” a laid-back sounding Peter Holstrom says.
“We’d performed to a lot of people who were going to a dance music festival, and that was fun and great but we needed to come back and do shows for our fans, the ones who didn’t want to spend however much it was for a festival ticket to just see a few bands that they might like on it.”
The decadent rock outfit’s strong touring relationship with Australia can be traced back to their visit in 2000, on the back of their landmark album Thirteen Tales From Urban Bohemia. When they walked onstage for their Livid Festival set, they were met with such a screaming wall of white noise from the audience that they changed their set list on the spot, opening with the high-paced feedback dirge “Fast Driving Raveup With the Dandy Warhols”.

PROPAGANDHI AUSTRALIAN TOUR, MAY 2011
Secret internal cables released early Monday morning by controversial whistle-blower website Wikileaks, have provoked an unprecedented 694-day debate in Australian Parliament.
The cables suggest, contrary to public pronouncements from the Gillard government, that the unbelievably good looking Canadian hard rock band Propagandhi have no time-line for withdrawal from their extremely unpopular mission in Australia.
Propagandhi have warned against handing over responsibility for security in Australia to any of the completely self-serving total assholes that tend to get involved in federal politics in the first place, insisting the transition must be tailored to the conditions on the ground.

Following his sold out shows in the Sydney Festival 2009 and rocking the Lilyworld at the 2011 Big Day Out, Reggie Watts returns to Australia in April 2011 for some very special shows!
“Reggie Watts: Super comedian. Faster than a speeding punchline” Seattle Times
Reggie Watts began his career as a singer in various bands in the early 1990s. Then he started being himself. Crazy. Absurd. And the people laughed. They’re still laughing. In his unique sets, Reggie’s subjects range from ancient history, technology, magic, spirit elves, dragons, mythology and theology to pop culture. The music, exploiting a jaw dropping vocal range, incorporates hip-hop, tripͲhop, 80’s pop alternative, nu-metal and classical opera – no two songs are ever the same. Reggie loves to disorient and confuse people in the most entertaining way possible.

It is this hallowed place that A DAY TO REMEMBER has not-so-subtly taken over, from stereos to mosh pits across the world.
