Tim Barry @ Rosies, Brisbane – 02 April 2011 w/ Wollard and Burns, Jud Campbell [Live Review]

Review by: Stephen Goodwin

  Some invisible barrier seems to prevent punters from encroaching closer than five metres from where local Jud Campbell is punching out a solid set of folk-punk. Maybe he has cooties, because a little later everyone is crowding the stage’s edge as if to hear every muted note and whispered vocal in Wollard and Burns’ back-porch set.

Stage’s edge is still too distant for Tim Barry. Early on, the American drops the lead from his acoustic and plays unplugged amidst the crowd, harnessing their enthusiasm for a sing-along full of roaring voices and grinning faces.

BM – You’ve toured the country quite extensively in your short musical career – what have you been looking forward to most about this tour with Oh Mercy?

HC – I have been very lucky to support some amazing australian acts on their tours. I really enjoy getting to experience a different crowd in every town/city and it’s a joy to be able to watch Oh Mercy play their set every night.
BM – How has the tour been treating you so far?

HC – The crowds on this tour have been great and really supportive of my set. I’ve been playing solo for the majority of the shows on this tour and the guys from Oh Mercy have been very kind letting me tag along with them on the road.

The Go! Team – Rolling Blackouts [Album Review]

Review By Helen Brown

Rolling Blackouts (Bonus Track Version) - The Go! TeamRolling Blackouts (Bonus Track Version)
  Rolling Blackouts, the third release from British band The Go! Team, can be best described as a breath of fresh, salty sea air. The tracks are energetic and empowering, the kind of album you would take with you on a short road trip adventure. The Go! Team exhibit undertones of Regurgitator’s electronica phase, circa 1997 to 1999.

Their first song, ‘T.O.R.N.A.D.O.,’ is a hip hop-laced number about moving your body to the beat. It is punchy right from the start with no soft introduction to ease you in. The tracks ‘Secretary Song’ and ‘Bust-Out-Brigade’, sound very much like theme songs from sitcoms and crime shows with the use of cheerful clap-along beats and synthesised siren sounds respectively.

The vibe throughout the album is generally to be happy within yourself, enjoy life and have fun with the people around you.
