Gary New to venture to Australia

Gary Numan - Jagged from the Album Jagged

Saturday 7th
MELBOURNE. The Forum. Corner of Russell and Flinders Street, Melbourne.
Tickets from Ticketek 132 849 or
Tickets for all shows on sale 9am Friday 10th October

Just found this email advising me that Gary Numan will be touring next year with his full UK light show and electrifying live performance. I've seen some great gig's at the Forum but is this big enough for Gary and Band?

As you can see with the above picture I aint no cool guy, as this is a cheap double CD, which I purchased back in the 90's for only $14.95. The Pleasure Principle which is on this Double, was released in late 1979 as has been very influential, but forget about that he's just looks cool being some sort of human robot creature.

Do you shell out for something like this, he hasn't toured here since 1980. Please someone send me a free ticket.

The Adrian Belew Power Trio to Tour Australia

Just got the heads up on this upcomming gig, The Adrian Belew Power Trio will be touring Australia and playing at the Corner hotel on Wednesday 3rd of December. Adrian is a self-proclaimed ‘stunt guitarist’ and has performed with the likes of Frank Zappa “Sheik Yerbouti”; David Bowie on “Lodger”; Talking Heads on “Remain In Light”; and on the Tom Tom Club “Tom Tom Club”, just to name a few. He got plenty of MP3 samples to get a glimpse as to what to expect. Adrian will be supported by Penny Ikinger at the Melbourne gig.

Not the Human League

Harlequin League - Bones

I often dream at night and wish there would be a band that would come out and be as cool as the Human League in Melbourne town, but alas this will never happen. But when I see the words Synth in a lineup of instruments I'll take a second look. The Harlequin League have a Synth in the lineup, and upon loading there myspace page you are greeted with a track called Again and Again, which may get the kids dancing along to this Synth/Rock Tune, but skip this tracks and listen to Itchy Heart which is much more of a catchier tune and some experimental aliments. I can hear some sounds that remind me of the likes of Stone Roses, Janes Addiction and even a modern act Kasabian (but they don't have the big sound like them). The above track is a little strong but still worth a listen.

They also have a gig coming up at the Corner also with End Of Fashion & The Seabellies on this Friday 5th September.
