Last Saturday night in Newcastle one could be confused and think they had ventured into a time machine. Travelling back to the year of 1974 when founding Radio Birdman members Rob Younger, Deniz Tek, and Pip Hoyle with Jim Dickson were taking the stage for the first time in a sweaty pub in Sydney, armed with an array of attitude and a brand of unique music about three years ahead of its time. This type of music surely had no place in the Australian pub scene? The hell it doesn’t. This is every bit a part of music history as any other Aussie pub icon band in the last 40 years.

It is hard to summarise the night that was spent watching the glorious men of Bluejuice give it their all at the Metro Theatre for the last time, only because the night was filled with so much substance that I know something will linger past this review and remain with those who witnessed the show.
To start off the night, the relatively fresh band Jody welcomed the crowd with a breezy disposition, drawing a great likeness to the summer-indie image that more developed bands have owned. This kind of familiarity did take away from the experience the band was trying to deliver.

Dream On Dreamer (DOD) are pleased to announce the …And The Light Pulled Me Back Tour. After dropping the new single “Darkness Brought Me Here” to the delight of their fans, the band are pleased to follow up the huge demand with a run of 18+ and All Ages shows along the East Coast.
2014 has been a turbulent year for the band with drummer Aaron Fiocca fighting cancer and a member change with the addition of Chris Shaw (ex House Vs Hurricane) on bass. This would be too much to handle for most bands but DOD are stronger than ever and are currently busy writing their third album scheduled for release in 2015. Aaron is now fighting fit and smashing the drums with huge beats and as a whole the band are really excited for the future. DOD can’t wait to test some new material live, plus also play all the fan favorites.

Don Walker releases a brand new live album, recorded at Melbourne’s Caravan Club, featuring songs from the acclaimed album ‘Hully Gully’ and the vast Don Walker catalogue.
Walker has few peers, if any, in illuminating the darker underbelly of the Australian psyche, whether he’s performing with Cold Chisel, Tex, Don and Charlie or solo. Angry women, luck-chasers, heartbroken prodigals who don’t smell good and anyone who just wants to throw the afternoon away on a game of pool – they’re all still there recorded live.
