This week’s 'hijacked' Beat cover salutes Captain Luke Benge.


Our much loved eccentric typesetter who's been with us longer than we can remember. Sorry to the faint hearted of you out there in Melbourne but hey, whatever, we love a bit of cock at Beat.

Moroccan Kings are major up-and-comers on the Melbourne alternative rock scene. Though they fit fairly comfortably within our musical landscape, the outfit are doing things just a little differently. They’re set to release their brand new single, Grizzly Bear, with accompanying video, and while the song itself is ready to go, it's been a mad scramble to have the self-...

What does one say when asked to speak to a class of 12-year-old kids? This was the conundrum that Dave Thornton recently faced and he takes us through the entire journey – the stressful anticipation and the result.

A show of pure stand-up but purely entertaining, Tom Gleeson’s Good One has no real theme or underlying message, instead he opts for a handful of segments that very loosely tie together.

After a not-so-cryptic hint yesterday, one of the greatest entertainers of our era has finally announced his return to Australia.


His name is Prince, and he is set to bring a 360 degree arena spectacular to Australia this May (that's correct, only a month away).

Tom Ballard brings a smorgasbord of contemporary, political and irreverent comedy to the table and chows down with gay abandon. The gay part of the show is certainly there and rammed down your throat like a...uh, never mind - but it's never used as a comedic gimmick the same way an ageing female comedian would use menopause to make jokes. 



The show itself is about...

Define your genre in five words or less.

Fuzzy, goodtime, PsychRock.


If you could travel back in time and show one of your musical heroes your stuff, who would it be and why? 

Mozart, so we could give him LSD and he could arrange some strings for our next album.


When’s the gig and with who?
