Amid a sea of nostalgia-baiting anniversary tours, there are a few notable standouts. The best of them show that the passing of time has taken none of the fire out of the music, nor the band itself.


For tonight’s openers Screamfeeder, a stalwart of Australia’s grunge/garage scene, nostalgia was far from the...

Back in 1996, an Aussie band little known to the world was thrust into the international spotlight with the release of its third studio album, Ivy And The Big Apples.


Spiderbait became the face of Australian rock, and in many ways, the popularity of grunge took a step back to make way for them. 


To celebrate the 20th anniversary of Ivy’s release, Spiderbait are...

They were the first-ever Australian band to hit number one on the triple j Hottest 100.


Their hits have transcended pop and youth culture both here and abroad. They’re still one of the best damn live bands you’ll ever get the chance to see. From the streets of Finley in regional New South Wales to the main stage of Falls and back again, Spiderbait are one of those rare...

Utes. Utes and rock'n'roll. It doesn't get much more Aussie than Jimmy Barnes, Morgan Evans, James Reyne, Ross Wilson and Spiderbait, who are among the artists announced on the 2014 Deni Ute Muster lineup.


There'll be visitors from America too, even though they're more inclined to call a ute a "pickup" there. Coming our way are Blackjack Billy, Gary Allan and The Mavericks....

Age is the natural enemy of rock’n’roll. Pete Townshend declared he’d rather die than get old; the Cosmic Psychos promised they’d never get old.
