Robert Forster

Show

Thursday 11th July, 2019

Show time @ 8:30-10:00 pm

 

 

 

 

 

 

‘The jungle is coming up to the door,

                          The birds that are calling are hard to ignore’

 

‘Inferno’, set for release on March 1, is acclaimed Australian singer-songwriter Robert Forster’s first solo album in 4 years - his second album over the last eleven years. Forster only makes records when he feels he has the songs – on Inferno, he has 9 he totally believes in.

 

They range from the exhilarating top ten pop of Inferno (Brisbane In Summer), the beach shack groove of Life Has Turned a Page, via Remain’s 1977 New York strut, to finish in a way that this concise, brilliant, drama and wit filled album only can - on the big build epic One Bird In The Sky.

 

Inferno was made in Berlin in 2018, during the hottest German summer in decades. Noted producer/engineer Victor Van Vugt (Beth Orton ‘Trailor Park’, P J Harvey ‘Stories of the City, Stories from the Sea’), recorded the album; the first time he and Forster had worked together since Van Vugt engineered Forster’s debut solo album classic ‘Danger In The Past’ in Berlin in 1990.

 

Inferno in its making is a perfect mix of the familiar and the new. Also working with Forster again, are Brisbane based multi-instrumentalists Scott Bromiley and Karin Bãumler from ‘Songs To Play’ (2015). While, new recruits are drummer Earl Havin (Tindersticks, Mary J. Blige) and keyboardist Michael Muhlhaus (Blumfeld, Kante). Four musicians from the corners of the world, who, with Van Vugt’s bold and beautiful production, sound like a band of the ages. In front of them, Forster delivers the best vocal performances of his career

 

Early praise for ‘Inferno’ single:

 

“There’s a classic rock’n’roll swing to the first cut from The Go-Betweens founder’s new album”   - Q Magazine

 

“Deliciously wry, effortlessly melodious reflections on ageing, climate change and the debatable consolations of cult status: “I don’t need no fame!” - Uncut

 

 

Over the last four years Forster has been busy. He curated the acclaimed, Domino Records released, ‘Anthology Volume 1 1978-1984’ on his old band The Go-Betweens. His memoir ‘Grant & I’ was Mojo and Uncut’s Book Of The Year. He continues to publish music journalism, play concerts, and he never stops writing beautiful songs. 

 

He looks forward to touring Inferno; starting with a full band tour of Europe in April/May 2019, followed by his Australian tour in July.

ED KUEPPER: NEW AND OLD DREAMS (UNEDITED / UNHINGED)

In addition to his just announced shows with The Aints! Ed Kuepper will also take to the road for a series of regional dates as he starts preparing material for a new solo album.

 

I'm hitting the road again this September and doing a pretty select number of mainly solo shows [mainly solo because there is a good chance of some very special guests popping up from time to time]. I'll be debuting a swag of new material which will hopefully see light of day on my planned next solo album ''Electricity, the High Priest of all Security'' plus pulling apart some familiar and some not so familiar tunes from my past catalogue to see what makes it all tick… I'm looking forward to it. Hope to see you there. 

 

Former ARIA award winner, Saint, Laughing Clown and owner of some fifty + albums bearing his name Ed Kuepper will take in first time appearances at Red Hill and Old Bar as well the less frequented Castlemaine, Bellingen, Katoomba and more. 

 

Tickets for all shows are on sale May 20th.

ALEX SMITH

Show

 

Saturday 26th October, 2019

Show time @ TBC

 

 

“FLYING SOLO” - THE VOICE OF MOVING PICTURES SOARS AGAIN

 

banner image

 

Lead singer of “Moving Pictures”, Alex Smith will tour East Coast live-music venues in October 2019, performing his new album “The Thread” & celebrating the songs & artists that shaped his youth.

 

It’s a long time since the intensity of the early 1980’s, but the passion for singing & performance has never left him.  As the younger brother of talented Blues Guitarist, Gypsy Dave Smith, Alex grew up listening to the music of artists like Muddy Waters & Brownie McGhee filtering through his bedroom wall.  That deep connection with the rhythms & power of the blues, morphed on to form the backbone of his musical tastes and performance style. 

 

From living his personal history at the heart of the 80’s Australian pop scene & as a celebrated vocalist and song-writer, Alex Smith a lot to reflect upon & say.   His new CD album release “The Thread” (2018), combines classical inspirations from the ancient myths & powers of the three Fates, with his experience of life lived at full-tilt down through the decades. Alex’s trademark skills as a lyricist & songwriter come shining through, while his smooth and original new music, reverberates with themes & storylines we all will recognise. 

 

“Lemonade”  - when life gives you lemons.

“Slow Train” – real love is all about the journey.

“Heaven Yet” – taking a leap of faith.

 

 

“Alex Smith is bright and erudite.  He’s a journeyman with two hands on the wheel & one eye on the world – a condition that saturates sharp & sure-footed story-telling.  A pristine, dynamic voice is at the centre of songs awash with emotion and flooded by the ebb & flow of life.”

Nick Bennett, journalist, broadcaster.                

 

The Flying Solo tour will blend Alex’s new original material from “The Thread” with his powerful renditions of his favourite blues, soul and rock tracks.  With performances of much-loved masterpieces by The Loving Spoonful, Bob Dylan, Buffalo Springfield, Leonard Cohen & The Who, the Flying Solo tour sees this celebrated voice ringing out again, as he performs throughout a variety of intimate venues, pubs & clubs in Sydney, Melbourne & Brisbane/GoldCoast.

Shane Howard

Trio

Friday 26th April, 2019

Show time @ 7:30-10:00 pm

 

For 35 years Shane Howard's songs have mapped an Australian landscape. From the dry desert landscape where he penned ‘Solid Rock’ to the Wild Rivers of Tasmania and ‘Let the Franklin Flow’ he’s created a uniquely Australian voice and traversed a vast landscape in his travels.

 

With his 13th album ‘Deeper South’, the musical landscape is as vast, mysterious and powerful as the Southern Ocean that roars outside Howard’s true musical home, in a shack down by the South West Victorian coast.

 

‘Deeper South’ is an album that redefines the boundaries of Australian folk music and reinvigorates it with poetic and musical mastery. The musical influences are as diverse as jazz, blues, country, Australian folk music and the deep well of traditional Celtic music.

 

On this album, Shane’s great musicality is enriched by the accomplished playing of John Hudson (Guitar/Dobro) and Ewen Baker (Fiddle/Mandolin). The live show rocks and rolls, like a boat ploughing deep into Antarctic waters, set free from the troubles that beset the land, sailing wildly into the tempest of mighty squalls. Gentler songs are deeply meditative, picture the calm, glassy, seas of Summer. Irish and Scottish tunes flow in and out, like ocean currents.

 

This is true folk music, but not as we know it!

MARK WILKINSON

BLUE EYED GIRLS TOUR

 

Singer-songwriter, Americana, Indie Folk, Acoustic – these are all labels that could aptly apply to Australia’s Mark Wilkinson, but ultimately he lends his voice to the human condition. Those moments in life that bear memory, those questions that drive us all. So universal they aren’t bound by time or place, but so few can ever put into words.
"He truly has a gift for poetic lyrics...There's a glow of warm around him and richness to his supreme voice, sending shivers down spines as he pulls you into the soul of him." – Hazel Buckley, TheMusic.com.au
It’s this simple but all too rare ability to connect that’s brought him acclaim the world over. His music has risen the charts on two continents, his shows have sold out in half a dozen countries more. He’s shared arena stages with some of music’s most enigmatic names like Brian Wilson and Rodriguez, but he can still be found performing on the street, forging connections through song without barrier or contrivance.
With three full length albums under his belt already, 2019 sees Wilkinson return to the live stage in support of his fourth record, "Blue Eyed Girls". Set for release in March 2019, this new collection of songs comes hot on the tail of "Wasted Hours" which hit #1 on the Australian independent album charts in early 2018.
The 'Blue Eyed Girls' tour will encompass a lengthy run across Australia throughout March, April and May before heading to North America in June and onto Europe through July and August for a slew of shows in the northern hemisphere.
Don't miss the chance to catch one of his powerful and moving live performances as he showcases songs from his new album along with fan favourites from his ever growing catalogue.

The Pigs

Live in Concert

Saturday 9th March, 2019

Show time @ 8:30-10:00 pm

 

The Pigs – Unashamedly hillbilly, Outrageously entertaining

“The musical outrage that is The Pigs!” - Richard Glover (ABC Sydney)

THE family that plays together, stays together and bluegrass band, The Pigs, are living proof as they prepare to unleash their first all original album on the world.

Having played music together in the hillbilly mountains of Australia for many years, some say hundreds of years, The Pigs decided in 2004 to come from the remotest corners of the outback to form the band in Sydney.

Once the word got around that the family band had gone public with their brand of bluegrass, they were unstoppable and the fans came trotting in.

The Pigs’ sounder of swine is made up of personnel: * T-Bone Pig – Lead vocals, nylon string acoustic guitar, mandolin * Stretch Pig – Lead vocals, steel string acoustic guitar, harmonicas * Cousin Burt (The Daytime Stripper) – Double bass, backing vocals * Cousin Shamus – Stand-up drum kit

And, due to having such a large family, they are often joined by:

* Cousin Montz – Banjo * Cousin Oink – Fiddle

Highlights of The Pigs’ 13 years on the Australian highways include performances at the Tamworth Country Music Festival, The Gympie Music Muster, Woodford Folk Festival, The Deni Ute Muster, Port Fairy Folk Festival, Broadbeach Country Music Festival, and Queenscliff Music Festival.
