If your ears have turned to blobs of jelly from Christmas jingles blaring out whichever way you turn, spare a thought for musos making dosh from it. 


Slade singer Noddy Holder is expected to make A$1.44m from 1973’s Merry Xmas Everybody from UK royalties from radio, TV, jukeboxes and shop plays as well as compilation album sales. The Pogues’ Fairytale Of New York, in second...

The tour, which takes place over the new year period, will be Carey's first visit to Australia in over 14 years. With both of her other Australian performances selling out in minutes, tickets are expected to fly out of the door for...

Some of Australia's hottest rising talents will take to Queens Park this April for the very awesome, very free, and very all-ages Sounds Loud Festival.


Some of the big-name acts to take to the stage will be Stonefield, Bleeding Knees Club, Dream On Dreamer, Hand of Mercy, For our Hero, The Sweet Apes, Amber Lamps and 8 Bit Love. Pretty tidy, eh?

The fun this band is having is enviable. Touring round with a tight knit crew, music aside, must have its merits, but it's best not to try and understand what's actually going on within as it's a bit of a mess. A few members have managed to stand out from the crew – the obvious being Tyler who, for all intents and purposes, is just oozing charisma like glue for kids to stick to. He...

Cansei de Ser Sexy might translate as ‘tired of being sexy’ but last week’s show at the Corner Hotel proved CSS are far from it.  Visiting our shores for the first time as a foursome since the departure of Adraiano Cintra in November, the curtains of the Corner open to reveal the Brazilian party crew in a pose and ready for action. Lead singer Lovefoxx sets the tone, asking the...

So then, w hat's the band name and what do you 'do' in the band?

We are FLAP!, I am Jess, I play banjo-ukulele, sing, and write things. I also wear the dresses.


W hat do you reckon people will say you sound like?

People will say we sound like the ghost of a 1920s jazz dance band that travelled the world in a sequined party zeppelin,...

R'n'b singer Joe has enjoyed a career spanning nine albums and several number one hits - including the seriously infectious Stutter [2000]. As he prepares to release his ninth studio album, The Good, The Bad, The Sexy , Joe - real name Joseph Lewis - confesses he, like many celebrated r'n'b artists, found his voice in church.


"My father would travel, preaching in the...

My 13 year old self is unable to contain his excitement. As I close my eyes I can still picture my cousin Stanley arriving from LA with a bunch of CDs that he thought I might enjoy. 


At the top of the pile was a rather foxy girl band, whose first single Head Over Heels had just been released. I have to admit that rather shamefully rather than looking through the remainder of...

Aw. It’s not often you see dudes who manage to rock the worlds of radio, DJing and production so universally, but Canadian big-gun U-Tern aka Vaugn Oliver has done it all. And pretty spectacularly, might we add.


Hailing from Vancouver, the guy’s been entrusted with remix duties for Mark Ronson, Holy Ghost and Stevie Wonder, makes up half of electro duo Oliver, and runs a...

 There was not a cloud in the sky as Supafest made the leap from stadium show to full-fledged festival. While the sun god smiled on Melbourne, the first half of the day was plagued by dubious scheduling. Second performer of the day Bow Wow voiced his concerns loudly, while punters had to figure out the locations of water stations and the DJ Mash-Up room.
