From http://www.toopure.com/mclusky/ here's some exciting mclusky news:

Fresh from a blistering performance at ATP Camber Sands, mclusky return to the fray with long awaited new album, 'The Difference Between Me And You Is That I'm Not On Fire'. Two years on from the release of their last album, 'mclusky Do Dallas', finds the band a changed beast with a new drummer and surprisingly, an even heavier sound! A hometown show in Cardiff on April 24th precedes the release of a single, 'That Man Will Not Hang' (26/4), and kickstarts a tour that will see them visit Europe, America, Canada and Australia before the summer.

they're coming back. awesome.
Hey Hey.. I know it's a little bit late, but tonight on the show, Eli and Buttahz from THE STOCKHOLM SYNDROME are getting' jiggy on the show from 10pm, plus the mix of awesome records you've come to know and expect..

Wednesday, April 21, 2004

Copyright, the internet and remixing are rarely topics that feature very much on Let's All Turn On! but in the current climate this might be of interest.. Hot on the heels of DJ Dangermouse mixing Jay-Z's Black Album and The Beatle's White album to create The Grey Album, comes"London, Booted" - a remix project of mashups based on The Clash's London Calling. Avant-Garde? Sacrilege? Both?

..and another thing - I've discovered Horizontal Action. It's the most on the button, kickarse rock'n'roll magazine I've seen in a long while. Have a look-see, but be aware that it's a little bit adult, so could get you into trouble.
Nick sez: Howdy. Just to apologise publicly, I've been a bit quiet on the radio front for the last two weeks. Well... silent actually. But my excuse for last week was that I was in Melbourne getting liquored and buying records - Gawdbless Missing Link and Corduroy. Highlights of the purchases I made will undoubtedly be peppering the LaTO playlist over coming weeks.

As regards Corduroy, I've added a link to their page on the left there.. See the Detective? While in Melbourne, it was my pleasure to discover that if you're willing to make the journey, they're very amenable to a visit to the warehouse, and you can get your vinyl fresh from the cellar door. The only proviso - make sure to call ahead. They're also now distributing Get Hip Records in Australia, so get into ya mongrel.

TONIGHT'S SHOW

Will and Monika are proud to present another action-packed show. Our special guests tonight will be:

The Butterfly Effect: on a huge tour at the moment and playing Sydney's Gaelic Club, Friday.

The Spazzys: The gals will be in playing their favourite tracks, chatting about rocknroll which will no doubt entice you to their show tomorrow night at the Hoey with The Booby Traps in support.

We'll be chatting to those feline rapscallions, Digger & The Pussycats who are playing with Gentle Ben & His Sensitive Side on Satdee night again at the Hoey. And last, yet not least, we'll have a long-awaited update of all things Scandanavian from Markus, our roving Scandanavian Rock Reporter (and DJ at the Townie).

As usual, any requests, call 833 22 2999 or email us at lato@fbi.org.au

UPDATE (14/4/04)
1) FURTHER are taking over from Rocket Science at the Annandale on Friday, playing with The City Lights and Richie and The Creeps.

2) More seriously, here's the Official Statement from Rocket Science:
"Rocket Science lead singer Roman Tucker suffered a serious head injury after fainting 2 hours prior to their scheduled show at Ding Dong in Melbourne on Saturday evening. Roman was rushed to hospital in a serious condition, and has been in a medically assisted coma in intensive care since the accident.
Roman has sustained swelling on the brain and two small blood clots which both resulted from the fall, and while his condition is considered serious, he is currently listed as stable.

Medical staff, family, fellow band members and friends are all optimistic that in time Roman will make a full recovery.

Roman's family and Rocket Science wish to thank the many fans who have already posted well wishes on the Rocket Science website.

Due to these circumstances we regret that Rocket Science will be unable to perform on the remaining Sydney, Brisbane and Adelaide dates on their current single tour.

Ticket refunds will be available at the point of purchase."


Roman fell and hit his head, so the Rocket Science shows this weekend at the Annandale are cancelled. Best wishes and getting-well-soon-ness for the tallest man in Australian rock'n'roll.

I'm returning to the wheels of steel this Thursday night at..

.. it's the Transit Lounge at The Metro from 9pm until 3am, $7 on the door, or $4 if you've got a Solomon Burke ticket stub. It's being put on by the good folk at Popfrenzy, who're also responsible for the soon-to-return Let's All Turn On! night.

I'll be spinning Northern, Rare, 60's, 4 on the floor soul, with a sprinkle of Latin and garage. Listen to the show and then head along.

Exciting record store news.

Paint It Black - some friends of ours have opened a new record store on Enmore Rd, opposite Oportos stocking only independent punk, hardcore, rock'n'roll and indie from Australia and O/S - plus demos, zines, DVDs and a $5 horror movie video section.

Mojo Music - Nev Sergent runs one of the best record stores in Sydney, Mojo Music on York St. They don't give a shit about what's popular, just what's good. I've added a link to them on the side-bar. The best part is Frank from Waterfront has wound up there a couple of days a week. It's a pleasure to see him behind the counter of a record store again.

What do these places have in common? They're both run by dedicated individuals who know everything about the music they stock, and they don't stock crap. It's a rare thing and they're deserving of your patronage.
Friday night at the Metro was scorching, and The Von Bondies have added another show in Sydney. It's Easter Sunday, the 11th, at the Annandale. Tickets on sale at the Dale's website.

UPDATE (4/4/04): Wayne has responded with a letter here, and there's discussion of the whole affair on the Velvet Rope Forum - all of which is substantially better informed than I could ever hope to be, so best you head on over there for the skinny.

Despite evidently being very heavily involved in its production, Brother Wayne Kramer seems to have decided that the MC5 documentary movie .The MC5 - A True Testimonial is now an 'unlicensed bootleg', and he's preventing it being screened or released on DVD.

I saw the film at the Melbourne Film Festival last year. It's awesome, tragic and inspiring and now a real drag that with all the effort that went into getting it made over the last few years, it's being bogged down again.

Something to do with Wayne releasing his own DVD? The full story is at The Detroit News. There's also a few, um, interesting things mentioned concerning the opinions that Fred Smith and Rob Tyner's families have of Wayne and the upcoming 'MC3' tour.

Also, Fred and Patti Smith's son, Jackson is in a killer band called Back In Spades. Stuart from Lyricism, (Wednesdays, 10pm, FBi) saw them in Austin at SXSW and is gonna give us their record to play on the show sometime in the next few weeks, so keep an ear out.
