    POP GUN MEN at Hearts 20/6/79

    POP GUN MEN at Hearts 20/6/79



    Pop Gun Men were formed out of remnants of X-Ray-Z and the early version of Secret Police. John Ray (drums), Peter Rich (vocals, sax), and Maurie Bund (guitar, keyboards, vocals) have combined with Andrew Picouleau (bass, vocals) and Dys Nalon (guitar) in a merger that thrives on gut energy at the same time as it feels the need to experiment a little with arrangement ideas and not quite conventional song structures. ...

    Doctor Pepper: The band’s…well…but the singer is SHARYN ROSENBERG



    Imitation is the sincerest form of flattery so I suppose we can forgive Ms Rosenberg the manifest strains of the divine Joplin that permeate her voice. But there’s a lot more to singing the blues than copying the masters (or mistresses) as even saint Janis herself found out. The voice, being the greatest musical instrument there is, still needs some backup to shine at its best. It needs feel, love, de...

    THE MODELS
    By Al Webb





    One cold, bleak Melbourne morning, lead vocalist – guitarist Sean Kelly and keyboard player Ash Wednesday were contemplating the ins and out of Models forthcoming trip to Sydney and Brisbane. But we had no time for such trivia. I wanted a history of Models in ten words. A few ums and ahs later, Ash spoke. “When we started we had a vague idea of playing and performing inventive pop songs – I think “pop songs” was the phrase t...

    I thought this movie of the mag serves the purpose well as you can pause the pages if you choose to read the rock history of that era.

    TAGG No. 1 - THE CRYSTAL REVIEWED By Patrick Miles

    THE CRYSTAL REVIEWED


    The George Hotel, Fitzroy Street St Kilda, past home
    of the Crystal ballroom.


    By Patrick Miles - June 14th, 1979 A variety of senses motivate people to see a rock’n’roll band. It is impossible to cater to everybody’s whims and invariably someone is thoroughly peeved with the conditions in which they hear a band. Animal involvement, casual observance and uninterrupted study swirl together in differing levels of audienc

    SPORTS LIVE REVIEW JUNE 1979


    The Sports live to air radio and television hook-up at Bombay Rock last Friday was both a success and a disappointment. Their 8pm performance for the 3XY/2SM/2NX/4IP network was great – the audience was in ta co-operative mood, cheering right on cue and the band’s performance was one of the tightest. But somehow, between 9p, when they left the stage, and 12.30am when they returned, the zap had gone and it was a pretty nervous group which appeared on the screen for Nightmoves. Lead singer, Steve ...

    Jane Clifton Interview circa June 1979



    When Jane Clifton talks about Stiletto, you can’t help but get the feeling that she looks back on her days in a rock’n’roll band not so much with regret as with a wisdom and a knowledge that she didn’t have when the band started.

    Comfortably settled into a circuit of activ
    ities that includes acting, swingtime/jazz singing, and a late night spot at the Last laugh Theatre Restaurant, she can probably afford to feel that way.

    But the Stiletto sag, starting...

    THE LAST FLOWERS CONCERT

    GREG MANSON

    Due to uncertainty about gaining entry, I made a very early appearance - so early in fact that only those concerned with the show were inside and I was able to observe the first few teenies hurtle to the front row like penguins fleeing a shark, and squeal and squabble for position. ...
