• THE GIBBS THAT KEEPS ON GIVING

    Chris Gibbs has been a staple on the local music scene for some 20 years, and is now releasing two EPs in quick succession: one as Chris Gibbs & The Transmission, on April 15, at The Henhouse Live; and one with his power pop rock trio Graphic Fiction Heroes, on May 13, at the Indi Bar.

  • ROCK'N'ROLL LOVE LETTER

    If you're a music lover and you get the chance to see the Descendents play live, do it. Even if you have never heard a single song of theirs before, it will be an amazing experience. The band will be blisteringly good, and the crowd will be so ecstatic that you'll walk away feeling energised and in love with life. I imagine that seeing the Descendents feels the same way that seeing The Beatles must have felt... all those amazing songs and all those diehard fans tuned in to the same frequency. Just pure joy everywhere you look.

  • AIN’T NO PRIVATE CUL-DE-SAC

    Eric Gales is a lucky man. Considered a guitar prodigy in his teens, he quickly fell into a devastating spiral of drug abuse, and ended up spending time in the Big House.

    His just-released new album, Middle Of The Road, finds him clean and sober, and in blistering form.

    “Were there times when I thought I might not make it this far?” the acclaimed Memphis singer/guitarist posits, somewhat candidly. “Yeah, there were times that I thought that it was... I went off the rails.”

  • KILLING TIME

  • TO NARA WITH LOVE

    Perth's Ah Trees beguile once more with a new video for their single, Nara

  • ENJOY THE RIDE

    With an ear tilted towards the Britpop sounds of yore, Perth’s Imperials have just released a new single, Get Off On The Ride.

    Interestingly, Get Off On The Ride was also the title of the band’s 2016 debut EP, although the song didn’t feature on that release. It’s like Led Zeppelin and House Of The Holy all over again (just Google it, m'kay?).
