Ahead of the release of their new album, Five Rooms, their End of This Summer photo book, documenting the band in the pre-digital world, and a national tour, we talked to Screamfeeder’s Kellie Lloyd about Brisbane in the 1990s, being in a band for 30 years, playing solo shows and the hunt for missing photos […]
The end. Well, it’s as good a place to start as anywhere isn’t it? A wet Wednesday night in April at the Riverstage for the Brisbane show of Midnight Oils final tour probably isn’t the ideal send off everyone dreamed of, but that’s La Niña for you. In the UK, Midnight Oil occupy that strange […]
Midnight Oil play their final Queensland show at the Riverstage in Brisbane.
It’s starting to get biblical outside, real Old Testament. Roads are already beginning to close, meaning that a different route from what we’d normally take needs to be taken to get into the city tonight.

Springtime play at the Princess Theatre in Brisbane, supported by McKisko.

I’m Paul McCartney, I was in the Beatles, I helped change pop culture and music forever […]
If ‘Best Albums of the Year’ lists serve any good purpose, it’s to point out a few albums that went completely under my radar in the last 12 months (or more like 9 months given how early they come out these days). In at Number 43 with a bullet in The Guardian’s Best Albums of […]
Although we’re well into the second week of 2022, I think I can still just about get away with wishing everyone a Happy New Year. I think we all need 2022 to be a better year than the last couple of trips around the sun. As 2021 came to an end I really started to […]
