Lather delivered a note-perfect set of Zappa classics from the seventies to a full-house of happy Frank-ophiles last night.
The Love Mussels – It’s All Relative was a winner on all fronts. The venue was fantastic, the sound mix was pristine, and the band were on top form.
No matter how small Buffalo Drive’s imprint on the local music scene may seem to have been now, it was inarguably significant. It is great to be able to get to hear these songs played live again with such humour, joy and passion.
Great songs performed by a group of committed players who clearly love The Triffids’ music. Flawed at times, but the band exuded great spirit and it is a well established truism that the greatest rock and roll is often best anyway when precision is overruled passion!
Classic Bruce at Gluttony is quite clearly a labour of love full of Springsteen songs delivered with a high level of reverence and an impressive degree of musical dexterity.
Little Sylvie and Miss Ohio combined together at The Jade on Sunday afternoon to provide a fascinating mix of vocal and acoustic delights as part of this year’s Adelaide Fringe.
Twins, presented by comedian Greg Fleet and film-maker Ian Darling, at this year’s Fringe

Summer land – Jessica Swale’s directorial debut – is a sensitively told story of loss and redemption, powered by strong performances from Gemma Arterton and Gugu Mbatha-Raw.
