• EMOTIONAL RESCUE

    Alt-rock/post-punk outfit DIY Rainclouds have just released a new single, Alibi, a song conceived via something of an accidental sonic detour.

  • PUNK AT 40

    Upon the year of the 40th Anniverary of Punk, Nick Sheppard - he of The Cortinas and The Clash, and in more recent, local times The Domnicks, The New Pomeranians and The Blinders - looks back on four decades of England's Dreaming.

    I’ve been thinking a fair bit about Punk Rock this year, which is not surprising really; 40 years ago, 1977, Punk Rock became a thing… a thing I was lucky enough to be right in the middle of.

  • DAT OL’ BAND RIVER

    Breaking news in The Southern River Band camp. Literally.

    Calvin Bennett: “So far it has been terrific. I have been astonished by the music I had heard at the heat so much, that I would've been happy just watching. I was honestly shocked that we had gotten through, given all the exceptional music I had heard online and live. I'm very much looking forward to the final, not just to play, but to be inspired by the talent being showcased.

    James Knox of J.F.K on reaching the Gozzy Rock Grand Final:

    “We had an awesome time at the heat – it was so much fun. Band comps are always a bit of a stressful environment, but the Gozzy Rock team were super nice and so easy to work with and it was such an amazing venue to play at which made the whole experience really positive. We were so stoked to have made the finals and we’re super excited to get up on stage and do our thing again this Sunday – we’re up against some really talented bands so it’s going to be an awesome event.”

  • GOZZY ROCKERS #2: CHOKING STANLEY

    James Bradly of Choking Stanley on reaching the Gozzy Rock Grand Final:

    “Gozzy Rock has been great so far. All the stage crew were really helpful and professional, and we were so pleased to get into the final. We're all really looking forward to it, and can only hope for the best.”

    If the delightfully named Choking Stanley look like they’re having a good time up on stage – and they do – there’s a damn good reason for that.

  • GOZZY ROCKERS #1: HIBISCUS

    Hayden Atterton of Hibiscus on reaching the Gozzy Rock Grand Final:

    “I think my mum was the most excited really, she actually knew before I did. In the classic mum fashion, she was waiting online so she could give me the good news since I was at work (laughs). We are stoked to be in the finals, just to be put in a category with great bands like Choking Stanley and J.F.K feels really reassuring that we’re heading in the right direction. Win, lose or draw this weekend we are just thrilled to be a part of it.”
