the RADIATORS – Free Show

THEY ARE BACK!!

The rock ‘n’ roll road to stardom is a dangerous road indeed littered with the corpses of starry eyed hopeful’s, wannabes ,one hit wonders and jagged “if only’s”…while many bands self‐implode before they even leave the garage, victims of classic clashing egos and personalities ……
Few survive…
One of these survivors is Australian band THE RADIATORS who retain their enthusiasm for the music and the fans after more than 35 years of touring together.
The Radiators have carved a niche in the annals of Australian rock history, they have hared the stage with all the great Aussie acts such as AC/DC, Rose Tattoo and INXS with over 4000 shows to their credit, the Radiators have played the music to an estimated 3 million people in Australia and you’re next!!

then on 15 February. . . Mental As Anything !

Mental As Anything – Free Show

In 1978 the Mental As Anything Play At Your Party EP was released. It was the band’s first recording and it was a sound of pure fun: catchy, quirky, and joyful. It captured the essence of a band that since its formation has never swayed from the path and continues to entertain crowds all over Australia and the world.
Now, the 40th anniversary of that EP is being celebrated by the rerelease of the original vinyl and a live multitrack multi-camera recording of Mental As Anything’s 2018 full live show.

The present line-up of the band is led by Greedy together with ex-Atlantics guitarist Martin Cilia, drummer Jacob Cook, guitarist/vocalist Craig Gordon and bassist/vocalist Peter Gray.
Greedy is keen to show off this latest version of the Mentals to display their reverence for the original recordings and turning out fine new original material.
What is sometimes forgotten is the importance of the songs of the Mentals.

From The Nips Are Getting Bigger, Come Around, If You Leave Me, Can I Come Too and Too Many Times, through Live It Up, You’re So Strong and Let’s Cook, these are the songs that are a soundtrack to Australia. Brilliantly crafted pop hits that evoke wonderful memories. Their 25 Top 40 charting songs were for a long time a record for an Australian band and are a wonderful illustration of the depth of their catalogue and their song-writing ability.

IF YOU MISSED THEM LAST TIME DON’ MISS THIS TIME!!
