Album Review : Matty T Wall – Transpacific Blues Vol.1

Review by Peter Coates – www.facebook.com/InsideEdgePhotography

The more artists I discover for the first time, the more ignorant I think I must be about the music scene!

A CD that dropped into the letter box this week is the new release from Perth bluesman Matty T Wall, which is a collection of some absolute blues classics from some of the all-time greats, performed by Matty and his band, and features a few guest guitarists – with the concept inspired by the Gary Moore release of Still Got The Blues back in 1990.

Cancer Bats at The Cambridge Hotel, Newcastle – 11th October 2019 Photographer: Ben Hosking

I was lucky enough to witness Canada’s Cancer Bats in action back sometime around 2013 and was struck by the band’s intensity and obvious enjoyment with what they were doing. That was a Sidewave at Sydney’s Hi-Fi Bar supporting Bullet for My Valentine – which in this reviewer’s mind was a bit of an odd pairing, but whatever…

THE MARK OF CAIN “Battlesick” 30th Anniversary National Tour – October 2019

The Mark Of Cain return to the stage this October performing their debut album Battlesick in its entirety.

Originally released in 1989 via indie Adelaide label Dominator Battlesick sounded like no Australian album before it or since. Tracks like Wake Up, Dead Man’s Mail, The Setback, Call in Anger and the title track addressed the fear of dreams, the threat of death, anger over disappointment and personal setbacks; not exactly the subject matter of an era when Kylie Minogue was queen and Ratcat were primed to become the pinnacle of the underground. It did not chart and in Australia it was barely heard out of Adelaide however, it’s resonance did find an audience even if that audience had to come from places farer rather than near.
