I see dead people!

October 30, 2009

By Stephen Stockwell

The 25th of October saw usually dull city and valley streets overrun by the walking dead, or at the very least people dressed as such. The Zombie walk has been running for a few years in Brisbane now and organisers of this years event were expecting 2,000 to 3,000 participants and were surely not disappointed. (more…)

CD Review: Flight Of The Conchords

October 18, 2009

I Told You I Was Freaky

PrintComedy music is probably the hardest genre to pull off. Not only do you need to be funny but you also need to be a good musician, and if you are the Flight Of The Conchords and taking on every genre of music under the sun then you need mad skills. Flight Of The Conchords certainly have skills, but this album sadly doesn’t show them as mad. (more…)

CD Review: Numbers Radio

Acquiring Satellites

Numbers Radio

As soon as the opening track kicks in (“Automatic”) you can hear hit written all over “Acquiring Satellites”. With over drive pedals and lyrical rock harmonies Numbers Radio start their debut album with a rock track that will keep this summer fresh.

 This is an album of the times, the rock factor is there in the grinding and riff driven melodies with singing that matches the high power instrumentation with a laid back melodic delivery. Catchy and one to fill the clubs and venues for the next year.

CD Review: Charlie Parr

charlieparrphoto2005The sticker says “Folk/county- blues artist”.

I think the marketing department are  afraid of calling it bluegrass- blues, because not many of us are willing to give bluegrass a try because of the stereotypes of hillbillies and rednecks it evokes.

Charlie Parr does has influence from all the styles of music created in the back country of America, but he takes what some people abuse and shows us the beauty that is inherent in any earthy and soulful sound.

From the eyes of a festival virgin: Sounds of Spring

October 2, 2009

By Alley Crooks

I have never been to a music festival and been to two live shows in my almost twenty years on this planet. There are many reasons for this, one being I grew up in Bundaberg and it’s a cultural wasteland and since moving to Brisbane I am perpetually broke due to being a uni student. BUT I finally got to see what all the fuss was about on Saturday by going to Sounds of Spring.

I showed up at 12 but before I got in they made me tip out my water bottle which I was very unimpressed about as it said on the back of the ticket you could bring water bottle, I was told later by a friend they changed the rules earlier that morning. So I paid the five bucks for water but I found the tap to refill it later on in the day.
