Ever since he gave the proverbial one-finger salute to his precious folkie audience almost 50 years ago, critics, punters and any half-witted industry type has been condemning Bob Dylan to the garbage bin of musical history. But still Bob keeps coming back, sometimes good, sometimes strange, always intriguing. 

 

So what does Bob Dylan have left to say in 2012? Judging by Dylan’s...

Gearing up to hit Australia for the first time with the Tim And Eric Awesome Tour, Tim Heidecker has released a 15-minute-long song about the Titanic.

Here's Tim's statement on the release.

 

"Last month I read that Bob Dylan's...

Somewhere around 1965, Bob Dylan morphed from folk pop star to perpetually contrarian artist. Born Robert Zimmerman in Minnesota in 1941, by the early '60s, the middle-class Zimmerman had reinvented himself as Bob Dylan, a hokie folk singer channelling the radical spirit of Woody Guthrie. By 1965 Dylan, tired of the inherent limitations of traditional folk music, had teamed up with a crack...

The band is called earl and you've got all of us. Troy – guitars and all things tech. Tom – drums. Jackson – slappin' the bass, and myself, Mark – vocals and guitar.

Bearing the terrible clichéd nature of this question, what do you reckon people will say you sound like?
Pop-rock. No one has told us we sound like...

In a very cosmic turn of events, it was a visit to a psychic some ten years or so earlier that informed singer Troy Lempriere that he would end up writing songs and performing in  Sound Of Troy with its creative brains trust, guitarist Sam Labruna, as he explained to us recently from his home in Melbourne.

That one day in, uh, June that we like to remember is back in full force this year, with the much-loved Reclink Community Cup returning to Elsternwick after a cameo visit in Sydney earlier in the year.

 

Just as last year's theme was the dark prince Nick Cave, this year's motif will be that of The Cramps.

 

Each band performing on the day will slot a...

Taken from their forthcoming sophomore album, Gun Has No Trigger sees the Dirty Projectors folding an crooning soul rock melody – something Simply Red might have toyed with, back in the day – into an increasingly strident harmony by the band’s idiosyncratic female vocalists.

It was happenstance, and a latent passion for Chet Baker’s twisted, tortured and emotive brand of jazz that led Melbourne musician Nick Murphy to adopt the name Chet Faker as the nom de plume for his electronic-beat-pop outfit. While Murphy is adamant that Chet Faker is largely Nick Murphy under a convenient pseudonym, he does concede that it’s reasonable to assume Chet Faker is an alternative...
