Within the first 20 seconds of listening to this track I was overcome with an overwhelming sense of dread. A subtle and infectious bass line, gentle drum rhythms and despondent key trickles: 'Holy shit! Do I actually like the new RHCP song?'. Oh wait, Anthony Kiedis' voice is now wailing in an almost illegible fashion and the intricate grooves have become monotonous as they continue to drag...

Bearing the terrible clichéd nature of this question, what do you reckon people will say you sound like?

The Red Hot Chili Peppers.


When’s the gig and with who? 

Saturday August 4, The Espy Gershwin Room with Feathered Friends and Cat or Pillar.


So, someone is walking past as you guys are playing, they then go get a beer and tell their friend...

Ahem. AHEM. Is this thing on? Oh! Very good then. Well, here we go. The biggest name on the Australian festival calendar, the Big Day Out, has finally revealed their lineup for 2013.


The 2013 Big Day Out, which marks the festival's 21st birthday, will be the first Australian event since the introduction of the Big Day Out's partnership with C3 - the promoters responsible for ...

Lifted from the Red Hot Chili Peppers’ tenth studio album, this song is a tribute to Brendan Mullen, founder of a seminal LA punk club called The Masque. While it retains the deftly orchestrated funk style that has defined the Chili Peppers for 20 long years, Brendan’s Death Song is a very sweet tune featuring a collection of simple but affecting lyrics. You can tell they really cared about...

Define your genre in five words or less:
New Orleans style-street funk.


So, um... what is New Orleans style street funk?
New Orleans is known to most people as the birthplace of jazz. But as pop music took over the rest of the world, the New Orleans street bands were still doing their thing. They evolved too, as they were influenced by ground breaking funk...

So then, what’s the band name and who are the members?

We’re called The Funky Brews, and we’re a 5 piece band that’s been together for 7 years. Our lineup is Bill Ashworth on beats, Cal Burns on bass, Steph L’Aimable on guitar, Dan Lazner on sax, and Sean Riley on vocals.


What do you think people will say you sound like?

We’ve often been described as a...

Pacing fervently around the Flemington Racecourse, soon to be home to this year’s Big Day Out with founder Ken West, it’s near impossible not to be swept up within the whirlwind of the festival's astonishingly rich history. Since its inception as a Sydney-only festival in 1992 the self-professed ‘travelling circus’ rapidly evolved into a nationwide extravaganza, underpinned by its devoted and...

Is Jane's Addiction the most on again, off again, back on again band in history? They seem to have split up several times only to reform a few years later across the course of their literally decades long career.


The last time it happened, in the early to mid 2000s, the result was the excellent Strays album of 2003, which is inarguably the most hard rocking thing they've ever...

Two years is a long time in anyone's language. Just ask the four members of Melbourne garage rockers The Fearless Vampire Killers. That's the time it has taken to finally get their debut full length record Batmania out and unto the masses. To say that the guys are relived would be a massive understatement as is clearly evident when I speak to bassist Jacob McGuffie. "I think, it's definitely...

The diversity and quality inherent in the Melbourne music scene never ceases to amaze. This M-Town based three-piece could loosely be described as alternative rock, although of a very quirky kind. They are certainly putting their own unique bent on the style, and doing it remarkably well.


There's a kind of off-kilter funk vibe to their sound, possibly bringing to mind a more...
