Young Modern, Dust Collection and Safari Set @ The Gov!

YOUNG MODERN (1977 – 80) was one of the great post punk pop bands in Australia. The band’s 60s influenced power pop found instant favour in Adelaide and Melbourne, whilst reformations to record “How Insensitive” (2006) and “Live @ The Grace Emily” have kept the legend alive and growing.

For a brief period around 1980, SAFARI SET were the great Adelaide power pop band. The band broke up without releasing any records but left their mark in the hearts and minds of Adelaide’s  most discerning music fans.

DUST COLLECTION was strictly a 60s cover band formed for parties and good times. Somehow they ended up releasing a bunch of original songs for Greasy Pop, Triple J and Walking Bird. But their hearts still lie in the tunes of Masters Apprentices, Pretty Things and Wimple Winch.

Three of Adelaide’s finest pop bands together in a rare triple bill – one show only.

One hundred and one years ago a group of artists got together in Zurich and formed a movement. Emerging amid the brutality of World War 1 Dadaism confronted the nightmare of reason with unreason—with nonsense, questioning conformity and embracing the absurd.

Celebrate SALA’s 20th at a Dada inspired evening embracing the experimental -whimsical wines, fanciful food and postmodern beats for art defying dancing.

Sydney’s enigmatic indie-psych-pop trio Cloud Control have announced they will be heading out on a national tour shortly after the release of their much-anticipated third album, ZONE.

Anyone lucky enough to have seen the band at one of their recent sold out ‘Rainbow City’ launch shows will attest to the energetic bliss they impart on fans at their live shows. ZONE, is well worth the three-year wait: their most cohesive, complex and personal release to date, full of colour, space and undeniable tunes.

The record is as much an homage to the psych-infused sound that Cloud Control has perfected as it is to their sense of humour, and their diasporic music tastes. In that, ZONE represents the full record: the band at their rawest, most inventive and most evolved, but still unmistakably Cloud Control. Coupled with the band’s fantastic on-stage energy, this is an event you won’t want to miss.

"Rock music in the seventies was changed by three bands—the Sex Pistols, the Ramones and The Saints." (Bob Geldof)

On the 40th anniversary of the release of The Saints’ classic album ‘(I’m) Stranded’, founding member, guitarist and songwriter Ed Kuepper will revisit the material performed by that seminal band from an era when a suburban Brisbane band took their sound to the world.


"I don't think that anyone, myself included, would have thought that this material I wrote when I was starting out would still have currency after all this time....but here we are celebrating it's 40th anniversary. I'm actually pretty chuffed about doing it and have got a top notch band together to play the stuff.” - Ed Kuepper

Saskwatch @ Fat Controller

Melbourne’s Saskwatch have had an epic year, from deciding to release their album independently as well as stepping into their own producing chair, to selling out their album preview shows in Sydney and Melbourne last month. 

With the release of their fourth studio album ‘Manual Override’ and the announcement of a massive national tour taking them around the country throughout October and November.

‘Manual Override’ marks a special moment for the band as it’s the first time the six-piece outfit have co-produced & mixed their own work, alongside sound engineer and long-term friend Cal Barter in Newmarket Studios, Melbourne. ‘Manual Override’ feels collaborative, confident and independent from the core. Its experimental and playful nature blends genres and feels liberating, producing a record that sounds earnest, mature and timeless – giving listeners the most personal and vulnerable collection of songs to date.

British India @ The Gov!

‘Forgetting The Future’ is the 6th studio album from Melbourne rock royalty British India. Featuring current single Precious, it’s set for release on September 22 via the hyped team at Liberation. Today the band are excited to reveal the visually arresting video for Precious, as well as announce a mammoth 35-date national tour in support of their forthcoming LP.

After five hugely successful albums, British India found themselves at crossroads. ‘Forgetting The Future’ is the story of them destroying their world in order to live in it. For the first time, the band teamed up with an external producer; voyaging into previously unknown sonic territory with Holy Holy’s Oscar Dawson. This revolutionary approach has led the band to create an explosive album that is their most ambitious and textured to date. “We were tapping into the same ferocity you feel when you first start writing songs,” vocalist Declan Melia says. “Just going for it, getting songs out without overthinking them, fast and hard. The way I see it, the sound is futuristic but it’s still raw.”

Throughout a remarkable 10 year career, British India have attained four Top 10 ARIA albums, seven entries into the Hottest 100 and their single I Can Make You Love Me is also accredited Gold in Australia. The band’s previous LP, ‘Nothing Touches Me’ featured popular singles, Suddenly and Wrong Direction which have collectively accumulated over 3 million Spotify streams

INFAMOUS - A CABARET CIRQUE SENSATION

As the lights dim and the parade of artists enters the arena to a soundtrack that oozes sensuality, it soon becomes apparent that this is not a family show. Sexy costumes adorn ripped bodies, sequin and sparkles decorate long legs supporting the lithe, taught torsos of the performers who under other circumstances would look equally at home on a sports podium receiving a medal.     

A couple of naughty clowns, a troupe of sexy dancers, the wheel of death, mind blowing aerials, some rather compromising contortionists, jaw dropping trapeze and a gravity defying pole act are just some of the experiences that have proven a hit with audiences already.  Three years in the making, INFAMOUS’ producers scoured and researched shows across the globe before finalising the cast and theme of the show which will be at Bonython Park until 10 September.

Steve Almond Benefit Concert

Steve Almond, who finds himself in a terrible predicament. He was recently diagnosed with a brain tumour and was operated on last week. Unfortunately the tumour was so deep-seated that not all of it could be removed and the only hope now are particulary aggressive and debilitating chemotherapy sessions. He has been told by his surgeon that the prognosis is not positive.

Steve was the stage mixing engineer with our band "The Boys" and travelled Australia with us for many years as part of the road crew. He was always a great worker and supporter of our drive to become an important part of the music industry.
His wife Marie has confided in me that they will need to sell their house to deal with the mounting bills and the fact that she has been advised she will need to be with Steve 24/7 means they are both unable to work.

Six great local Adelaide bands will be holding a benefit night at the Gov on Wed 16th August from 7.30pm - 11.30pm. All tickets are $20 and the monies raised will be handled by Australia's music industry registered charity organisation "Support Act" to enable Steve and Marie to accept all the income free of tax.
