Chris Isaak will be back in September for one show in Sydney (at the glorious State Theater) and one show in Melbourne. I enjoyed his performance at the Sydney Entertainment Center ealier this year so the vastly superior acoustics of the State Theater promise to make this an even better concert.

Ross Wilson celebrating 45 years in Oz music at the Palais; soon.

Now that would be a good gig! Seen him perform @ the Port Fairy Folk Festival last year. Keep us posted when dates become available.

Cheers.

Last night I had the pleasure of attending "The Foreday Riders" re-union concert. These guys were without a doubt Oz's best Blues band in the late 70's and 80's.

The original lineup was there - Ron and Jeff King, Stan Mobbs, Rosscoe Clark and Tony Pedroza. Joining them on stage throughout the evening were Michelle Van De Meer, Ray Beadle, Al Britton, Shane Pacey, Jill Tweedie, John Power, Les Karski, Phil Colson, Rick Lock and Pinecone Packer.

A simply awesome gig, and sadly a one off.

The music was one thing, but that fact that I was the official photographer and have 400 shots of the gang doing their stuff from offstage and on was a fantastic opportunity. The whole concert was filmed and recorded - cant wait for a copy.

Hi Aslan

They were a great band -we used to go watch them at John Hueys wine bar down on the Rocks in 1967-68 - they had a female singer who was good and had an excellent blues harp player. We were escaping from Holdsworthy army base just before being shipped off to Vietnam so my memory of all that they played isn't that good, we might have drank a bit....

But I know we thought they were the best thing around (outside of John Sangster, Judy Bailey, George Golla and Don Burrows up at El Rocco of course)...

I can still remember some of the graffiti on the wall at John Huey's tho -- Did you hear about the shark that came to a screaming Holt??

Cheers and thanks for the memory

Hi Mick, lets see............the '67 lineup would probably have had Jill Tweedie on vocals, with Dave Drury on bass.

Broderick Smith used to guest vocal for them in Sydney before being shipped off to 'nam around '69.

Some of them hadn't seen each other for 10 years before yesterday, and they were still an unbelievably tight outfit.

I hear Fleetwood Mac are touring, should be something to look forward to.

Yes got my ticketek pre-sale alert the other day for this one. Still haven't decided if i want to see them live. Last couple of live concerts i went too (not including local gigs) was Simply Red & Leonard Cohen both of which were excellent.

Hmm, judging by the posts here, not many people would like my sort of music.

I see about a gig a week, and yesterday just bought about $500 worth of tickets to shows to round out the year more or less. For me, somebody is always touring.

So who are you seeing this week?

So who are you seeing this week?

I saw a band called Mammal (from Melbourne) last night. I've been following them since before they were a band, and have seen them around 10 times now.

There was quite a good moment in the middle of the show, when the singer was going through the crowd with his wireless mic and dancing. A rather attractive girl was dancing with him, and made him forget the next line. He then proceeded to talk about how the crowd has all of the power, and then brought his mic away, and shouted out to the ~700 odd crowd about this is why we are all here, to just be in the moment and allow yourself to be lost in it.

Was quite good.

Next week is a band called The Bronx, who are reasonably heavy. I have not heard their studio stuff, but I have seen them live before, and few bands worldwide can touch their energy or state of euphoria they put you in...

Thanks. I checked out Mammal on myspace, sounds like they have listened to a bit of RATM in their time.

Not much beats the power of a live gig though.

Sometimes its easy to feel a bit like Grandpa Simpson - "I used to be 'with it', but then they changed what 'it' was. Now what I'm with isn't 'it', and what's 'it' seems weird and scary."

...or at least I dont get to the Annandale Hotel every week anymore and things have moved on a bit, so I stick to what I now and enjoy that.

It is always good to hear of bands to see locally, so I for one would be keen to hear any recommendations.

I just bought my tickets to see Fleetwood Mac in a Hunter Valley vineyard. Oh happy days!

Me too!!!! :cool:

I went to see Richard Clapton at State Theatre last Saturday night. While there was nothing wrong with concert, the SQ where we were sitting (second back row) was pretty awful.:love
