  • kc on bassI couldn’t find a clear winner for Gig of the Year for 2018. Here are 10 that were special.

    TODD RUNDGREN – Oxford Art Factory.
    His Toddness, the runt ,the hermit of Milk Hollow. Backed by a cracking band Davey Lane’s Drunken Blue Roosters, Todd took us from The Nazz, through his AM hits and on a detour to play many songs he admitted to not having played live for some time, if at all.

    Great songs, top musicianship and Todd really seemed to be enjoying himself.

    Here's some more news on long-rumoured posthumous recordings from late Saints singer Chris Bailey.

    In an Instagram post today, Church Street Studios engineer Sean Carey flagged that the recent digital single, “Break Away”, comes from a forthcoming album, “Long March Through the Jazz Age", It is the first release of new material since Bailey's passing in 2022.

    Recorded by Sean Carey in Church Street Studios, Sydney, Bailey is on vocals, guitar and bass and is aided by long term drummer, Pete Wilkinson and guest Davey Lane (You Am I) on guitar.

  • The Saints (without Ed Kuepper, if you had to ask) will play three intimate, exclusive Australian shows at Melbourne’s Gasometer Hotel in October. Chris Bailey will be joined by early ‘80s drummer-turned-journalist, Iain Shedden, Pat Bourke on bass and You Am I’s Davey Lane on guitar.

    Hitler’s reaction to the news is above. The dates are below and as the venue is quite intimate, bookings are recommended.

    Wednesday 5 October – The Gasometer Hotel, Melbourne (18+)
    Thursday 6 October – The Gasometer Hotel, Melbourne (18+)
    Friday 7 October – The Gasometer Hotel, Melbourne (18+)
