I feel so honoured to have Paulie Stewart, the lead singer of Aussie cult band Painters & Dockers, ask to use one of my photos as their promo pic for the upcoming Meredith Music Festival.
I remember seeing Painters and Dockers years ago when they would play live in Treasury Gardens, just near Parliament House, to protest against the Kennett Government’s proposed (and unfortunately eventuated) School Closures.
Painters and Dockers incorporate social/economic/politics issues with a sense of humour. Some of their well-known hits are: Nude School, Die Yuppie Die, Eat Shit Die, and You’re Going Home in the Back of a Divvy Van.
If you haven’t heard of the band, look them up.
Never knew much about KADAVAR until last year’s CherryFest … they easily became one of my faves!
And today, via Riot! Entertainment, this press release …
KADAVAR: official lyric video on ‘Eye Of The Storm‘ revealed!
German Classic Rock band KADAVAR are set to release their first ever live record called ‘Live In Antwerp’ as well as the ‘Abra Kadavar Special Edition’ on June 6th 2014 via Nuclear Blast. Now the Berlin-based trio has revealed the lyric video on the track ‘Eye Of The Storm’ on the Nuclear Blast YouTube channel.
Check out this psychedelic trip of a clip at the following link:
The 2CD set called ‘Abra Kadavar Special Edition’ will include the full tracklist of last year’s success album ‘Abra Kadavar’ plus a bonus track, as well as a full live set recorded in Antwerp. ‘Live In Antwerp’’ comes as a separate 2LP set and also features the full live concert recorded in 2013.
Wonder which band will be my new favourite after this week’s Cherry Rock?!
