When James Mercer, singer for the US pop-rock quartet the Shins, stretched his weary vocal chords one last time to sing, “Shut out, pimpled and angry / I quietly tied all my guts into knots” – the opening lines to ‘Know Your Onion!’ – I could visualise all the spotty first-years outside, in tears because [...]

When you combine a woman in suspenders, a blond braided wig, and a Swiss style hat with a fairly impressive Yamaha keyboard, and amazing vocals, anything could happen.

OK, I’ll admit it, I am biased. I don’t think I will ever have a bad word to say about Connan and the Mockasins, and I would have gone to this gig regardless of the Checks. It just so happened however, that I missed the Checks at the Big Day Out, so now there were [...]

To say Chan Marshall, otherwise known as Cat Power, is painfully shy is an extreme understatement. Its more than shyness, it’s a neurosis, and sometimes it seems to border on some kind of mental illness. I had heard that sometimes she turns her back on the audience, and that on other occasions she has been [...]

48MAY – Beach Party Animals!

At the start of 2003, four friends were drawn together by a single realisation – music should be synonymous with fun. If it’s not fun, it’s a waste of time. With this code in mind, 48May was born. Share on Facebook+1 on Google+Post to TumblrTweet this
