Q&A with Gavin Bowles – Picture Perfect

picture perfectHaving just released their brand new film clip for ‘I Know You Better’, Gavin Bowles of Sydney band Picture Perfect took time out to answer a few questions for LifeMusicMedia.com

:: What track changed your life ::

That’s a hard question. I’d have to say ‘Longview’ by Green Day. It definitely blew me away the first time I heard it. (Another one would be Hendrix’s version of ‘All Along The Watchtower’).

:: What is your favourite Album ::

‘American Idiot’ by Green Day. I always used to get shit about being a Green Day fan, but their music had a huge impact on me and that album is just a masterpiece, in every sense.

Live Review: Stone Music Festival Day 1 – ANZ Stadium, Sydney – April 20, 2013

By Natalie Salvo
Sydney was wet and it wasn’t David Lee Roth’s fault. Saturday morning had seen the heavens open again and again but rock ain’t about being comfortable and a little water never killed anyone. On day one of the inaugural Stone Music Festival, guitar heroes were king and no one was going to let a few showers rain on their musical parade.

A small but dedicated crowd watched LA Band, Buckcherry make their Sydney debut. They ploughed through hard rock songs like “Rescue Me” while “Gluttony” saw the rock ‘n’ roll forced up to 11. Lead singer, Josh Todd closed the set by asking how many crazy b**ches were in the house and it warmed my heart to see people getting into the spirit of the fest (i.e. “celebrating music, life and freedom”) by hollering about the deranged.

  It’s been over 25 years since the legendary Uriah Heep have played on Australian soil. In that time we’ve witnessed a lot of changes to our musical landscape: the birth, death and rebirth of trends, musical marriages and mix-ups, assassinations and cultural revolutions, and of course the dawn of the digital age.

ZIGGY, THE SONGS OF DAVID BOWIE – November 2010

If there’s one pop artist that multiple generations can relate to its David Bowie. There’s always a tinge of nostalgia listening to Bowie’s mellifluous tones whether it is listening to the Man Who Fell To Earth, Thin White Duke, Aladdin Sane or of course The Rise and Fall of Ziggy Stardust, which signified his ‘comeback’ in 1972 after a brief lull in his pop career.

ZIGGY, THE SONGS OF DAVID BOWIE pays homage to Bowie, the pop phenomenon – the influential individualist with the uncanny ability to push boundaries and transform himself and the world around him. Performed by four of Australia’s leading contemporary musicians and performers – iOTA, Jeff Duff, Steve Balbi and Brydon Stace – Ziggy, the Songs of David Bowie is as multi-dimensional as the man himself.
