Tonight in the Get Shot Radio studio at TripleH 100.1 FM, Hornsby & Ku-ring-gai Radio, we present Kevin Borich arguably one of Australia’s (and New Zealand’s) best known musicians … those of you old enough may remember The La De Das.

The La De Das were a leading New Zealand rock band of the 1960s and early 1970s. Formed in New Zealand in 1963 (as The Mergers), they enjoyed considerable success in both New Zealand and Australia until their split in 1975.

In Australia the band is probably best known as the launching place for the career of guitarist Kevin Borich, and for their recording of  The Happy Prince (EMI, 1968).  You can hear why by giving the recording of the show below a bit of a listen … featuring many tracks by Kevin and some great stories as told to John and Tony.

Rock N Load @ The Espy (Part 2)

Review by Dayne Applebee and Dan Stone. Photos by Kate Wehl and Dan Stone.

Saltar Hype and Crush Media Presents ROCK N LOAD, June 21 2014, The Espy St Kilda

If you missed Part 1 you can check it out here.

Bugdust

Bugdust

Following on from Smoke Stack Rhino, we all squeezed in a quick bite and a rest of the legs. It is time to check out one of my (Dan) favourite rock bands from Melbourne, Bugdust. They had the crowd singing along, especially to the classic “Mexican Death Squad”, and guitarist Shannon Trottman really steals the show with his guitar virtuosity and stage presence.

Don Fernando

Don Fernando

Don Fernando took to the Gershwin Room stage and our intrepid photographer, Kate, found herself getting pushed on stage by the band’s manager. Let’s just say, in situations like that, Kate doesn’t ask questions, she just does. This band, a well oiled machine, dripping with large amounts of fuzz and massive riffs, has a clear loyal following up front and genuinely garnered a lot more fans in their 40 minute set. The band were very impressive and very tight. I for one can’t wait to see them live again.

King of the North

King of the North

We’ve all seen King of the North a bunch of times recently having just completed their Sound the Underground national tour and caught the early parts of their set. A packed out Front Bar and Andrew Higgs and Danny Leo doing that amazing thing they do. If you haven’t already you have to check them out!

Ten Thousand

Ten Thousand

Pulling a decent crowd whilst giant killers King of the North are doing their thing in the front bar is no easy task.  But Melbourne faves Ten Thousand managed to do it. These guys are on top of their game.  Their alternative rock sound is extremely tight and has everything you’re looking for in a live gig. Catchy tunes, clever lyrics you can sing along with and an entertaining on stage presence that not every band is able to nail. These lads certainly do however, which is made a lot easier when you have the charismatic Jay Bowen as your front man. Awesome band, great sound, entertaining set. What more could you ask for?

Tumbleweed

Tumbleweed

And then it is time for that mighty Nineties band, Tumbleweed. I’m not sure who in the venue was anywhere other than the Front Bar as the crowd were packed like sardines and they loved every second of it. Highlights were “Sundial (Maryjane)” and the classic “Hang Around”. They were definitely the right choice to end the day filled with plenty of heavy fuzz-laden rock bands. Even though they weren’t the “last” band of the night, I’m not sure how many hung around for both Neon Queen (in the Gershwin) and Zuzu Angel (Front Bar) as it seemed everyone filed out very quickly. Personally, I’d have just ended it with The ‘weed and so after deliberating whether to hang around for the last band, we too also left. Ten hours of rock n roll and probably my favourite day of all the Saltar Hype and Crush Media events I’ve been to. Congrats to those teams and dare I say, bring on Creepshow…

King Of The North- “Sound The Underground” album review

 

Reviewed by Regi Su, courtesy of Kate Wehl

kings

King Of The North has such a massive sound. When I listened to them, I thought there was a full band, couple of guitars, a bass and drums. Alas, this is not the case. King Of The North is a band consisting of two members; Andrew Higgs on Guitar and Vocals, and Danny Leo on Drums and Backing Vocals. The fact that this band only has two members really blew me away- their sound is larger than life, their tracks are so well rounded and they’re really solid pieces of music. Their energy comes through the album, brings the rock to life. This is the kind of music you’d want cranked up to maximum volume as you blast up an old highway.

In fact, with music this quality, I think any more band members, or instruments would ruin the whole unit. It’s an excellent collaboration of well-balanced melody and percussion.

Their album Sound the Underground showcases tracks that aren’t too different from each other. This, however, isn’t necessarily a negative thing. Rather, it earmarks this band as having an established, stable, strong earthen sound. It’s a real, old-school, hard core sort of sound. Changes in tempo really string out the rhythm and effect the listener in a head-bangin’ kind of way. It’s either upbeat and fast-paced like the album’s opening tune “It’s Been Too Long”, or it stretches out a slower beat, a stressed rock in “Paradise”. The music has to be listened to, to be fully felt, fully understood.

Surrender” is an excellent example of fantastic guitar work and percussion in a balance, while the vocals just render it classic rock. On the other hand “Take it or Leave it” shows explosive drum skills and fantastic control. I think these guys would be phenomenal live. The track, “Ruby” really exhibits strength in vocals and guitar dynamics. A solid sound to feel all the way to your bones.

These guys have mastered the classic rock genre. They’re fresh-faces on an old scene and their innovative collaboration to create a full-band sound really sets a high-bar to any other band emerging on the Australian rock scene. They’re meaty, metallic and full of punch.

EMPRA’s self-titled album EMPRA

 Reviewed by Regi Su, courtesy of Kate Wehl.EMPRA EMPRA

Following the release of EMPRA’s self-titled album, the band EMPRA are touring Melbourne and Adelaide from July through until August 16th. This band is on the up- one of Australia’s leading high energy rock bands. Having toured with Fall Out Boy, The Living End, John Butler Trio, Spiderbait, British India and more, EMPRA have managed to give themselves a name on the international stage. After countless nominations and winning prestigious awards, like Livenation International Band Competition, as well as extensive media coverage via TV, radio and print across the globe, I decided to check them out for myself.

EMPRA’s album is rather impressive. It captures the essence of the band, it establishes their sound and their identity, but it also showcases their variety and depth. They traverse emotional atmospheres, both lyrically and mood-wise. For instance, their album tracks from classic rock, whips up a little punk, then slips into a slow ballad. Some of the time, I saw myself watching a 1990’s American High School flick and at other times, I found myself bangin’ my head to its raw grit, catchy beats and excellent guitar and percussion collaboration. This album shows flexibility, while retaining a unique identity.

“I Won’t Give Up” is an upbeat, fast-paced song that opens the album. It doesn’t necessarily set the mood for the album, but it is a good reflection of the sound of the band itself. Later, “I Won’t Give Up” is taken from a recording Live at Revolver, which shows off the strong vocals and electric energy, which just sparks off this band.

In stark contrast, “Strange Condition” is my preferred track. It’s well balanced, catchy, and it’s a slower kind of rock. It’s no surprise that this track has already been shortlisted as a finalist for the Vanda & Young Songwriting Competition. I like the leads and their harmonies. With catchy melodies, the tune begins with a folky air, a bit like Ball Park Music, but then there’s a build-up taking us to the chorus. This track changes up the atmosphere of the album and it’s a professional, feel good sound.

“Doesn’t Make Much Sense” displays EMPRA’s excellent guitar work and collaboration as a whole unit. The guitar skills transfer over to “Sabrina” which features acoustic guitar, ending the album on a nostalgic tone.

EMPRA has rocked the Australian music scene, making waves internationally. If their debut album and tour experience is anything to go by, keep an eye out for them and any future work they do. They’re a great sound- versatile, and both raw grit and polished synthesis at the same time.

 

Rock N Load @ The Espy (Part 1)

Review by Dayne Applebee and Dan Stone. Photos by Kate Wehl and Dan Stone.

Saltar Hype and Crush Media Presents ROCK N LOAD, June 21 2014, The Espy St Kilda

It’s that time of year again, the time when Saltar Hype and Crush Media combine their powers and bring together a group of the hottest bands around for their Rock N Load festival at the historic Esplanade Hotel, headlined by Nineties stoner rock gods, Tumbleweed.

Waking Eden

Waking Eden

There were plenty of highlights and surprises on the day. Kicking off the Gershwin room for the day’s event was Waking Eden. For a band that doesn’t do a lot of shows you could mistake them as a regular on the scene. A tight sounding group, their 90s rock inspired tunes, strong vocals and a bit of whaling guitar thrown in now and then for good measure. Also on early both Lucy’s Crown and The Caning put on solid performances to growing crowds and it’s not everyday you see the lead singer of a band extricate themselves from a straightjacket on stage, as was the case with the former.

Lucy's Crown

Lucy’s Crown

With the day now in full swing Free to Run had the task of entertaining a now sizable Front Bar crowd. And that’s just what they did. This four piece that apparently came out of “retirement” for this show went from some straight up rock n roll through to some dirty old blues later on in their set. And with Mike Pingle‘s Dan Sultan like vocals they couldn’t go wrong.  Let’s hope they stay out of retirement even for just a while longer.

The Caning

The Caning

Coming to the end of their national tour for their EP, Navigate the Sunrise, WA-based rockers Hailmary took over the Front Bar stage around 6pm and what was probably the first real sign the crowds had rolled in. Frontman Kevin Curran has it all going for him; a great rock voice and rugged good looks and the guitar skills to match. Between himself and touring bassist, Mick Quee, they have the crowd worked into a small frenzy. This band has the potential to go that next step. Great songs, great energy and one helluva rock n roll show.

Hailmary

Hailmary

On a day like this where you spend ten hours watching as many bands as you can there is always a struggle to fit in food. We had planned to grab some after Hailmary, but made the wise decision to stick around and watch Captives. Originally from Tasmania, this now Melbourne based band really did tear the Front Bar apart. These guys were a surprise for me. I haven’t seen them before and hardly seen the name, but they pulled off a high energy performance of punk rock music that left a mark on us. Will be checking them out again for sure.

Captives

Captives

I (Dayne) was interested to see who would pull the first big crowd of music lovers into the Gershwin room for the day. Turns out Smoke Stack Rhino were the right boys for the job. This blues infused rock group absolutely blew myself, and the rest of the room away. If you close your eyes during their opening track “Riverside”, you would swear Chris Cornell was on stage in front of you. Amazing vocals, Slick guitar riffs, punchy drumming and some amazing bass guitar that hits like freight train, what’s not to like? Easily my stand out for the Day. Keep an eye on these guys.

Smoke Stack Rhino

Smoke Stack Rhino

Keep your eyes out for Part 2 tomorrow when we bring you the even bigger guns from the day!
