Core- April 25

Dear Inexperienced Security Staffers Assigned to Various Venues When Bands of the Punk/Hardcore Persuasion Are Headlining,
I hope this letter finds you well, and that it does not long distract you from lifting heavy things before your beaming reflection. I would like to suggest a couple points of basic etiquette that are expected from you at a show. Though a...

Lanie Lane's career just keeps going from strength to strength. 


Fresh off a massive SXSW appearance, Lane has sold out two shows at The Corner Hotel for her Bangity Bang tour and has added another to meet the growing demand. It's been a whirlwind year for the songstress that has seen her record with Jack White and release her new album to critical praise. These shows are sure...

Punk, Ska, Hardcore news reviews and gossip. With Emily Kelly ek1984@gmail.com


Yeah so no one really breaks up anymore do they? Refused seem to have open the floodgates for band that swore never to return, to reform in triumphant fashion. Good Riddance announced a reformation last week and while it’s a welcome one I...

So last week was a bit epic, what with Big Day Out and then all the ensuing sideshows. I acted like a most mature adult and ditched the whole festival thing and bee-lined straight to the Sidney Myer Music Bowl sideshows. My wallet still hates me for it. So Mariachi El Bronx were excellent on Monday night but they weren’t quite The Bronx, ya know? And then I was finally one of the...

Being unwell, as anyone knows, is a pain in the arse. Suffering from ongoing illness is truly some next level shit. 


Melbourne’s Genny B – RRR regular and Livewire co-host, guitarist of Your Wedding Night and The Bites – has been in the trenches for the past year battling with an aggressive cancer, and the experience has left her working overtime just to cover her rent in...

Undercolours staged a flaccid, unadventurous set, effectively typifying the fate of your average support act - that is to say, while there was nothing truly objectionable about the band, that may have been the problem precisely. Undercolours’ complacent Triple M rock repertoire failed to pack much of a punch, any lasting impressions eluding the Corner crowd. Their set, while...

Well well well. Look what we have here. A Refused reunion . For years now I’ve been hearing rumours about the substantial sums of money Coachella have been offering similar seminal bands to forget their past indiscretions and reform for the festival. Apparently with each new year the offers become more and more generous, making it harder and harder for bands to resist the urge. At The...

Let’s wind up the year shall we? 



Balance And Composure – Separation – The young Pennsylvanians delivered on all expectations both with new album and Australian tour. Bravo.

The Smith Street Band – No One Gets Lost Anymore – Happily one of the best Aussie albums in recent memory. Also one of the best live bands doing the...

" The music scene in the '90s, particularly in Melbourne, was happening and alive," says Vincent Giarrusso, "It was good to be part of it." His band, Underground Lovers, were a seminal Australian dream pop act of the 1990s that had a fitful kind of success. They were critical darlings with a devoted fanbase. They won an ARIA, Best New Artist, for their self-titled 1991 debut, and signed a...

Being a support act is not the easiest gig in music, so to speak. Openers often play to a limited crowd and battle chatter from an audience who just want them to hurry up and finish. Occasionally though, you see a warm up act who defies all those elements and makes you glad you showed up early. Tin Can Radio, support for Tijuana Cartel’s album launch at the Corner Hotel on Friday night, is one...
