Having 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.
Melbourne indie-rockers Kingswood have unleashed their latest single ‘I Can Feel That You Don’t Love Me’ from the forthcoming album ‘Microscopic Wars’ which will be released through Dew Process.

Review by Scott Singh
Again comes that time of year where a mixture of locals and people from out of the state come together for a chilly day of good music at Groovin The Moo 2014 held at The University of Canberra. There was a clear distinction of who was a local and who wasn’t based on the apparel worn to combat the weather. Though, despite where you came from, the festival provided enough musical diversity to satisfy anyone’s quota for the day.
To start the day, Sweet Shoppe opened with a short but tenderising set that did intrigue many festival goers as they started their day. With a hypoactive sounds that sports a gifted female vocalist, the set was a great representation of the local talent coming from Canberra. It is always encouraging when locals make the effort to come out and support the band they enjoy at the start of the day.
The Boys from Kingswood are fast earning a reputation as one of the hardest touring bands in Australian rock n roll. Ending 2013 with a mammoth national tour with Calling All Cars, and kicking off 2014 by dominating stages along the national Big Day Out tour, they continue their run in April and May at Groovin The Moo, and their recently announced east coast city headline shows.
