Saturday, March 7th, 2015

Sugary and soulful indie pop outfit PHOX are making their debut Australian appearance this month for a special one-off Sydney show and in addition to that performance will be stopping by Music Feeds Studio this for a live stream and a chat, as part of Music Feeds LIVE.

PHOX’s introduction to Australian audiences follows the 2014 release of their debut self-titled album, one which features the lead single Slow Motion. The album was produced by Bon Iver’s recording engineer Brian Joseph at Justin Vernon’s custom-built studio and was mixed by Michael Brauer at Electric Ladyland in New York City.

PHOX officially formed in 2011 by six unlikely creatives who all attended high school together in the American midwest. after playing together in various capacities over the years, they’ve since released an album and toured across the US.

To catch a live stream of PHOX’s unique brand of sugary rock, tune in right here from 2:00pm this Monday, 9th March when the band perform live at Music Feeds Studio.

Plus if you like what you hear, PHOX will be taking the stage the following night at Sydney’s Newtown Social Club. Music Feeds has two double passes for that show up for grabs for lucky readers!

Moondog J hits Denmark (Live Review)

Tuesday, November 27th, 2012

After a long drive to Denmark I thought it would be a good idea to hear some live music. Not too much was on but the Denmark Hotel had a blues band called Moondog J. It was pretty quiet at the start but it didn’t take long before the band got its groove and the place filled. It’s only a small place with a TAB on the side. We had already eaten at Boston Brewery, but they only have live music every second Saturday and the Denmark Hotel has live music most Fridays and Saturdays. The menu seemed pretty good however. Pretty standard pub grub. We had a couple drinks and just chilled out. The band was pretty tight, with a wild harmonica and slick guitar while the drums and bass were solid. They got a friend from another band to get up and do a guest spot (Moondog J mostly sang and played harmonica) he pulled out his own guitar and gave it a hammering. All in all it was a good night and Moondog J were a great blues outfit.

Des Bishop’s dad was nearly James Bond

Wednesday, May 5th, 2010

There’s a comedian in town with a lineage as convoluted as a daytime soap plot and who can make mirth out of misery.

Des Bishop’s a London born Irish comedian brought up in New York whose Dad was very nearly James Bond.

Not everyone can say that…

Des joined Pete for a chat about his latest work, _ My Dad Was Nearly James Bond_ that’s inspired by the appreciation Des has for his dad.

It’s about fatherhood, how his dad was meant to play James Bond (in place of George Lazenby) and … his illness.

Call for Early Cancer Screening

Wednesday, May 5th, 2010

A Breast Cancer specialist has said women should be checked for Breast Cancer at a younger age to prevent the need for radical surgical procedures.

PROFESSOR IAN BENNETT told the Royal Australasian College of Surgeons Annual Scientific Congress that a national screening program should be put in place for young women with a family history of the disease.

His statements are at odds with the Breast Cancer Screen Program, who recently recommended women with a high risk of Breast Cancer not be screened.

PROFESSOR IAN BENNETT joined Meri Fatin to discuss the matter further.

Twit… or Twat?

Wednesday, May 5th, 2010

Her comments about celebrities like Bindi Irwin and Rove McManus received criticism from fellow columnists, talkback radio hosts and fellow tweeters.

Basement Birds

Monday, May 3rd, 2010

Four of Australia’s premier singer/songwriters have come together to form one supergroup – a bit like the Travelling Wilbury’s but much younger.

One’s the front man for WA’s most successful band, one alternates between heading one of Perth’s indie darlings and knocking out solo songs under a non de plume.

Another has played in a number of adored local outfits and threatens to release a solo album soon, and the fourth is one of Sydney’s most successful singers.

They’re Kev from Eskimo Joe, Kevin Mitchell aka Bob Evans, Steve Parkin and Josh Pyke – together they’re Basement Birds and two of them joined Mr Barr for Breakfast.
