  • Legendary US sluge/alterna metallers Prong mayve been doing their thing for 28 years but, this November, they will be making their maiden Australian voyage.

    The history of Prong has cast a long shadow - bands like Korn, Slipknot and Nine Inch Nails openly acknowledge their influence.

    By the time they had signed to Epic Records in 1989, the New York City post-metal triumvi-rate had already accomplished a lot. The band, formed by guitarist and vocalist Tommy Victor, soundman at the legendary club CBGBs along with the clubs doorman Mike Kirkland and ex-Swans drummer Ted Parsons had already released two independent records. Their best known and best selling work, Cleansing, cemented Prongs position as a mainstream metal mainstay. The albums single Snap Your Fingers Snap Your Neck has been in the top 100 riffs ever since.

    WHAT'S ON Despite the fact that his groundbreaking

    fretwork in seminal UK outfit The Smiths essentially lay the blueprint for Britpop and myriad subsequent genres, Johnny Marr often played second fiddle to Mor-riseys flower tinged caterwauling. Then, as a guitar for hir in such outfits as Mod-est Mouse and John Frusciante - he once again showed he was content with stand-ing in the shadows somewhat. However, after the release of his brilliant solo debut The Messenger last year, he proved he had plenty to say and hes certainly making up for lost time with Playland - a kinetic and punchy set and tempered with a blistering post-punk energy.

    While tracks like the Echo and the Bun-nymen-esque Little King and the rocking Back in the Box - the album is let down a tad by Marrs vocals - a problem which his guitar playing more than makes up for.

    While this isnt Quentin Tarantinos magnum opus (Django Unchained) holds that title this glorious re-imagining of WW2 comes pretty darn close.

    A band of U. S. soldiers facing death by firing squad for their misdeeds are given a chance to re-deem themselves by heading into the perilous no-mans lands of Nazi-occupied France on a suicide mission for the Allies. Brad Pitt and Christoph Waltz are nothing short of fantastic here. A must watch.

    While not Tom Cruises finest hour, there is still plenty to like about this sci-fi Groundhog Day.

    An alien race has hit the Earth in an unrelenting assault, unbeatable by any military unit in the world. Major William Cage (Cruise) has never seen a day of combat when he is unceremoni-ously dropped into what amounts to a suicide mission. Killed within minutes, Cage now finds himself inexplicably thrown into a time loop-forcing him to live out the same brutal combat over and over, fighting and dying again...and again.

  • When it comes to bona fide Aussie guitar heroes, Kevin Borich would have to be pretty close to the top of the tree. With a career spanning more than 30 years, Borich has done it all. Beginning with the seminal Kiwi rockers the La De Das, writing the classic Gonna See My Baby Tonight, to his Kevin Borich Express and The Party Boys, Borich has played at some of the biggest rock happenings this country has ever seen.

    Borich has played and recorded with artists such as Renee Geyer (Blues License), Dutch Tilders (The Blues Had a

    Baby) - Richard Clapton (Prushan Blue), Joe Walsh and The Party Boys, of which Kevin was a founding member.

    He has jammed with Carlos Santana on two of his tours, also with Bo Didley, Richie Blackmore (Deep Purple), Ron Wood (Rolling Stones), John Mayall, Taj Mahal, Living Colour. Overseas tours and tours with Jimmy Barnes, Renee Geyer and

    Mark Hunter, have added spice to his career.

    Catch Kevin Borich at Caves Beach Hotel on Friday, October 31.

    One of the countrys most enduring singer songwriters, Russell Morris hit creative paydirt in 2012 with one of the years most surprising releases in Sharkmouth. The barnstorming blues album, full of tales about such colourful Aussie figures as Squizzy Taylor, Phar Lap and Les Darcy, has become Morris most successful album to date. Not a bad effort considering that it was released completely independently.

    Now, with the second album in a proposed trilogy, Van Diemens Land, out and doing its thing, it seems the purple patch is set to continue for Morris who has produced another thumping blues record that is even bigger in scope, both musically and lyrically to Sharkmouth - covering such topics as the Eureka Stockade and Breaker Morant.

    Morris, who is perhaps best known for his seminal psych classic The Real Thing has definitely achieved icon status,

    with the ubiquitous track added to the National Film and Sound Archive.

    Catch Russell Morris at The Depot on Beaumont on Thursday, October 23.

    Well, weve already told you about two Aussie legends making their way to Newcastle in the coming weeks, so why not make it a trifecta.

    Long-time Newcastle favourites The Radiators, are heading our way to blow the doors off Edgeworth Bowling Club this week. Little did anyone realize back in 1978 that The Radiators would still be

    together, still hugely popular and still producing quality music with no signs of slowing down. Travelling thousands upon thousands of kilometres up, down and across the length and breadth of this vast country, The Radiators have carved a niche in the annals of Aussie Rock history.

    Catch The Radiators at Edgeworth Bowling Club on Friday, October 24.

  • While the first incarna-tion of Radio Birdman existed for only four short years, the ripples that their bril-

    liantly incendiary two LPs - Radios Appear and Living Eyes - created can still be felt some 38 years after their release.

    While they have always existed on the fringes of the Aussie popular music scene, theres no denying that Radio Birdman were one of the finest rock and roll bands this country has ever produced. A fact that is reflected in the release of a mammoth, limited CD box set containing both the Trafalgar and Sire Records versions of Radios Appear and Living Eyes, remas-tered form the original tapes, each coming with a standalone bonus disc with more rarities than you can poke a stick at. To cap it all off the set also contains a previously unreleased show recorded at Paddington Town Hall in 1977. Yeah, hup!

    Its funny because none of us thought the tapes existed and we ended up finding them in a studio where wed never worked before, guitarist Deniz Tek told TE.
