[LIVE MUSIC REVIEW] ANVIL AT FOWLER’S LIVE

There is nothing that Lips from Anvil doesn’t love about metal. And even if it’s a Sunday night in sleepy Adelaide, he’s going to make sure you love it too. The night wasn’t just about Anvil’s ‘Badass Rock N Roll’ though. We had local boys Shadow Realm open with an electric performance. The vocals of...
[ALBUM REVIEW] SOLO ELEKTRO BY GWYN ASHTON

[ALBUM REVIEW] SOLO ELEKTRO BY GWYN ASHTON

The first thing you’ll think of, or see, when listening to Gwyn Ashton’s solo record Solo Elektro, is the world through a grainy 8mm technicolour film. This record is very visual—think New York in the ’70s, bright colours and dirty streets; or New Orleans’ neon-drenched Bourbon Street. Hell, even the warm hue that sits in...

[LIVE MUSIC REVIEW] SEBASTIAN BACH AT THE GOV

“Remember yesterday, walking hand in hand, love letters in the sand, I remember you.” That is one of the most famous lines in Sebastian Bach’s catalogue that spans 30 years; from Skid Row’s self-titled ball-kicking debut to his most recent solo release Give ’Em Hell. Last night he returned to ‘Radelaide’ for a night of...

The master of macabre, Alice Cooper, has graced the stage of Sydney for the first time in some years.

Friday night saw rock legend Alice Cooper storm the stage of Rod Laver Arena for a night of classic rock ‘n’ roll and theatrics to boot.

[LIVE MUSIC REVIEW] PARANOID ALICE HAS BEEN COOPED UP TOO LONG; THE NIGHTMARE RETURNED TO ADELAIDE’S THEBBY THEATRE

Thebarton theatre is an institution. Built on a foundation of blues, bricks of rock ‘n’ roll, and mortar made from foot-stompin’ riffs, there’s no better place for two institutions of rock music to bring the house down. Alice Cooper, supported by Ace Frehley, took the stage on a Thursday night and welcomed us to his...

[ALBUM REVIEW] KALOS EIDOS SKOPEO BY COMACOZER

The Australian psychedelic rock scene is making quite a comeback and one of the bands driving it is Sydney’s Comacozer. So it’s time to do what Timothy Leary famously said to do back in ’66. They have just released their third album imaginatively titled Kalos Eidos Skopeo, or for the more unenlightened, ‘Kaleidoscope.’ Guitarist Rick...

[EP REVIEW] WAITING FOR NO-ONE BY ZERO

Zero is Adelaide’s latest band on the block and their EP Waiting For No-One is one damn powerful introduction. The studio project is a partnership between Matt Mitris (guitar) and Chris Gard (vocals), and the end result is a match made in metal heaven. Zero have created an EP with depth, variety and killer riffs....
