Timothy Nelson - WAM Win & Final Shows For 2011

Timothy Nelson has announced his final shows for 2011. And what a year it’s been for the man with the finest red afro in the country, one that saw him both release his debut long-player “I Know This Now” and take out the WAM ‘Song of the Year’ Grand Prize for his song Speak the Truth in Love.


Nelson has just announced his final shows for 2011 including a one off very special show @ The Ellington in Perth where he will play solo with a string quartet. Tim’s dad Mike Nelson, himself an acclaimed Jazz muso, did all the string arrangements. For a nice tie in between this paragraph and the last one check this out: Its Tim Nelson playing Speak the Truth in Love, the song that he won the WAM award for, with a string quartet like he will be at the Ellington show. Nicely done. Hell, here’s another track given the same treatment<


The Bon Scotts Sydney and Maitland Shows

Next week, The Bon Scotts head into the final week or their ‘We Will All Die At The Hands Of CGI’ album tour, with the last two shows in Sydney and Maitland.  The tour has already taken the Melbourne septet around the country, peaking with their near capacity album launch show at the Evelyn Hotel in Melbourne last weekend.


After a summer of festivals and touring, The Bon Scotts returned to the studio earlier this year to write and record their new album.  The first single, ‘Polluted Sea’, is a quirky tune, driven by a catchy accordion line and propelled by toy piano, mandolin and sing along choruses. All perfectly accompanied by another themed Bon Scotts stop motion video.


The Dynamites Feat Charles Walker: Thu 24th Nov @ The Zoo

Direct from Nashville, Tennessee, please welcome The Dynamites, straight-up, badass deep funk and super soul!

Making a sensational Australian debut at the Byron Bay Blues Festival in 2010, US funk masters The Dynamites featuring Charles Walker were quickly summoned back to these fair shores at the beginning of this year to play key festival dates and venues – most notably smoking it up for 35,000 party goers at Sydney Festival’s “First Night”.


Peats Ridge and Woodford Festival-goers also got to experience first-hand the white hot dance floor funk and smooth Southern soul that have placed The Dynamites at the vanguard of the new soul movement.

Their recent album BURN IT DOWN has something to say about life right now. >From its raw opening notes, it wastes no time getting to the gritty heart of the matter. Punctuated by staccato horn section bursts and Walker’s intense proclamation that “it’s been a long time coming,” the vibe evokes the ominous flames of incendiary times.

KILL CITY CREEPS Residency Kicks Off This Saturday

Surry Hills, prepare yourself.  Kicking of this weekend, Kill City Creeps bring their inner west sleaze to the stage, every Saturday in November for a residency Upstairs at the Beresford Hotel in Sydney.


What The Kill City Creeps have given birth to is entirely apart from anything that has come before…theirs’ is a sound, a look, a language, and an attitude to and of itself.  While somewhat reminiscent of late 60s psychedelia and 70s glam, the sound has taken on an unhinged, scuzzy demeanor that is very much parentless.
