To celebrate the release of their third album, TWELVE HUNDRED TIMES, Melbourne fivepiece, LAURA continue their national tour in 2012 and return to Hobart. Late last year, the band released the first two tracks from the album as a double a-side 7 inch, MARK THE DAY | THIS GREY EARTH. Dark, moody and complicated, the release gained significant critical attention with ‘Mark The Day’ being named Single Of The Week by both Beat Magazine and Inpress in January 2011, Inpress saying, \”…(Mark The Day is) enough to darken the sun at midday.\” This was followed by a successful east coast tour to launch the album. Laura now round off the tour with shows in Hobart, Adelaide and Perth.

freaky G sets his music free
E W i iF
Self-titled and self-produced, Freaky G is about to drop his debut album and it hasn’t been easy. Freaky G spoke to us about the dreams he had for the album that has been fifteen years in the making. Born and bred within the confines of Tasmania, the nickname Freaky G we are assured came from his larrikin nature, rather than his bedroom antics… It has been a long road to finally holding a solid copy of his self-titled album, starting to consolidate and write music when he was 18. The now 30 year old, Freaky, slogged his way through the long process of self-production to create his lifelong dream. “There are two things that really stand out to me, the first one was sitting in the studio and he played it back to me and that was the moment it was definitely like this is it and I certainly got pretty wide-eyed and pretty excited at that time and I knew it was only around the corner to actually holding a cd. I must admit when I opened that first box of albums, which was my lifelong dream come true. That was the moment where everything I had been working hard for was right in my hand.” Somewhat the perfectionist, Freaky G says that his biggest enemy was himself when it came to production. Pushing himself to create a ‘global sound’ and not resting until what was coming from the speakers was the same as what he heard in his head. “There have definitely been times where it has been hard but it has been my own inner demons that have made that hard and that has just been me wanting the best result possible.” He has worked his way up to number 3 on the Triple J unearthed charts with his single, ‘Bend ya neck’ and by using influences from acts such as Rage Against The Machine and Ice Cube, Freaky G combines genres to create unique hip hop sounds. There is something about his backing tracks which gives a punch to his music, using catchy guitar riffs as well as strong bass and drums really puts a lot behind the quirky lyrics. Freaky G describes the way he uses samples as having “very big sounds,”, by bringing old school noise and combining them with newer songs to create a different side to hip hop. And as much as there is to say about the produced side of Freaky G, there is just as much to say about his live performance. Creating a lot of his music for the live show, Freaky is all about have a ‘rocking time’. With the album launch later this month, there is no doubt that Freaky G fans will be having a great time.

children collide’s ryan caesar (pictured left) exits ... last TAS show at The Breath of Life 2012 ... new album!? by David Williams and zara gudnason
As Children Collide set off on their ‘Sword to a Gunfight’ tour this month, they are facing more than just the release of a new album. The band also says goodbye to their fourth drummer within 4 years. But they will be saying hello to what they hope will be a rejuvenated band. But if what we are hearing with the single ‘Sword to a Gunfight’ is just the beginning of the new and improved Children Collide then our ears eagerly await the future the band has planned for us. With two successful albums since they first began, the release of their newest album ‘Monument’ has lips moving. But, not as much as the speculation that surrounds the departure of their latest drummer, Ryan Caesar. We are assured by front man Johnny Mackay that it was for no other reason than just the tension that any band faces when they spend every waking second with work colleagues. With the release date for ‘Monument’ fast approaching, fans are eager to hear what will be a progression for Children Collide. The single ‘Sword to a Gunfight’ has a sophisticated feel about it, withthe massive mix of effects and www.sauce.net.au
different sounds this new single is a huge change to compared to older releases. The combination of all the new recording and audio techniques they have used helps create the deep, intricate and extremely unique sound that is Children Collide. We caught up with front man Johnny Mackay to chat about music, mates and of course Breath of Life! Sauce- Congrats on the third album! You’ve got a tour to launch it and the single ‘Sword to a Gun Fight.’ Tell me about that. Johnny Mackay - It was sort of just me jamming along to reverse delay guitar. The vocals, well we’d just come off the big day out tour and we’d been watching primal scream every night and they definitely leaked into it. There was a bit of Bobby Gillespie inside me when I was singing. S -What about the departure of your drummer Ryan Caesar, from what I have read about your relationship with Ryan. There was difficulty between your personalities, yeah? J -That is the main reason. He’s a great guy and a great drummer but spending all that time together, most people that work together don’t
have to sleep in the same room and spend weeks at a time on the road. I guess over the years certain personality types don’t click and when that is the case it just ends up boiling over and it could happen in any situation. It wasn’t crazy or dramatic; it was just not making either of us happy and stressing everyone around us out. I could have left and they could have gotten someone else to sing the songs but that’s not the way it ended up going. S- It kind of sounds like a sexual relationship that has spent so much time together and eventually even if you like each other it just doesn’t work. J - Well, being in a band is kind of like being married to people you’re not attracted to. ButI’m sure some people are attracted to their band mates but I’m not attracted to mine and I’m sure they’re not attracted to me! [laughs] I guess it is, you could make that analogy for sure. S - And so what do you think will be the musical difference after Ryan leaves? J - I think there will be slightly rejuvenated, not to take away anything that he brings to the band but we sort of all stopped writing together but without saying too much and it will bring a spark
Issue No. 144
back to the band. It will just give us some positive direction. S - You’re coming to play breath of life. Have you seen who else is playing, any thoughts? J- I’m keen for Fat Boy Slim and Skrillex and The Living End! We’re kind of stable mates with the living end. S - In terms of the new album and the material that has become popular that you’ve put out the last few years. Will you be playing any new stuff at breath of life? J - We’ll probably just play the new single and maybe the upcoming single at breath of life. With all the turmoil that has been going on, we haven’t really sat down and worked out the set. We have a couple of shows right before that in Victoria to figure it out. But right now it is kind of up in the air but we will definitely be playing the current single. ‘Monument’ is set to hit stores on April 20, but before that catch Children Collide at Breath of Life Festival on the 10th and 11th of this month at Inveresk Park in Launceston.

yacht club djs sail into hobart
We made it through the apocalyptic start to 2012 with no zombie sightings, but Australia’s own mash-up maestros Yacht Club DJs are about to make sure 2012 gets a dose of ’50s horror throughout March and April when they hit the road on the “They Mostly Come At Night…Mostly” tour. The Yacht Club DJs take to the stage with their take on a B Grade Horror flick – Zombies, fake blood, plus lots of dancing and, as always, nudity. Their first national tour since 2010, Australia best be wary of what they’ve got in store. Ballarat’s Guy Chappell-Lawrence and Gareth (Gaz) Harrison better known as the Yacht Club DJs will take their on-stage antics to the next level preparing to let night terrors loose on Australia. Guy and Gaz - good friends from mingling at the local - found their common ground in their eclectic and diverse taste of music including pop, hardcore and hip-hop plus a little bit of Australian larrikin. Bonding over how they spent their childhood compiling long lists of songs that would get the party started, they began DJing to their friends as residents of Karova Lounge in Ballarat. But it didn’t stop there. They’ve played parties all over Australia to more than just their friends, named on many festival bills including Meredith Music Festival, Splendour In The Grass, Parklife, Falls Festival, Field Day and Groovin’ In The Moo. The Yacht Club DJs take on the mash-up genre and their explosive concoction of classic pop, metal, theme songs and anything in-between is a testament to their knowledge of back catalogues as well as Guy’s constant desire to forage the Internet for hidden gems to get the crowd moving. Adding to the horror party will be the Yacht Club DJs hometown friends, Hunting Grounds. The six-piece with a rambunctious attitude, will rival the Yacht Club DJs as to who can turn the dance floor into a riot. Hunting Grounds took out the crown of 2009 triple j Unearthed High winner and have since moved on from playing in the Ballarat High School hall to national support slots of The Living End, Children Collide and the Philly Jays. The hyperactive energy and frenetic sounds of Hunting Grounds will prepare the crowd for the ramshackle set of Yacht Club DJs. Making it a night to dismember the Yacht Club DJs and Hunting Grounds will show the crowd how debauchery and disruption is done. Catch all the mayhem, Saturday 14 April @ Waratah Hotel, Hobart

delicious Miss Licious
Tassie’s ONLY Female Hip Hop n RnB DJ. “Booty Shakin’ Flavaz” Radio Show EDGE RADIO 99.3FM host from 2005 ‘til earlier this year, Resident DJ @ Tattersalls Hotel on Fridays & Saturdays. FOLLOW On Twitter:: @ www.twitter.com/MissDJLicious Miss Licious grew up surrounded with music. With her Family of DJs, Licious grew up with beats from the 50’s right through to Metal and beyond... Annoyed and frustrated with the lack of variety of music at the rnb club nighhts, Licious (then known as REDD) was asked to do a radio show for local radio station Edge Radio 99.3 FM. BOOTY SHAKIN FLAVAZ was born and soon bacame a hit right around Hobart and with world wide listeners from places such as New Zealand, China, Ireland and the USA.
masterclass by DJ NUFE
She soon formed a bond with up and coming Producer “Simon Illa” and continued to showcase alot of his beats. Simon produced the BOOTY SHAKIN FLAVAZ theme song “Shake That” that became an icon for the show. The show ran for 5 years, but unfortunatly due to other work related commitments is presently not airing.
Nufe started his DJing career in Launceston on community radio in1989 as a host of City Park Radio’s long running hip hop show “GhettoBlast”.
Licious (aka Redd) was a Resident DJ at local Pool Hall POOL ON LIVERPOOL/The Loft, playing bday parites, house parties and of course showcasing her URBAN BEATZ whenever she could. Licious brought down “DJ SPIN EASY” (USA) and as apart of a night to incorperate alot of small businesses around Hobart, local Pole Dancing Class Instructor “Sara”, local Hip Hop Shop “URBAN CRIB” to do a Fashion Show Night and even incorperated 2 local MCs FABIO & PRO.
He studied audio engineering at TAFE in 1994. One of the tracks he had engineered during the course was commercially released on CD.
From the success of the HIP HOP HOORAY PARTY, Licious went on to support FABIO & PRO with radio spots and organised a few events for them to showcase their music to a wider community than what they previously had access to. She continues to support them through mentorship and getting their beatz across at anychance. Miss Licious is one of the Resident DJs at Tattersalls Hotel - Curly’s Bar & The Rooftop Saturdays, Resident for the NEW Hobart Club Night LUSH, and currently the ONLY Female DJ playing Hip Hop n RnB in Hobart!!!
He later moved from music into film and television, working as an audio director at Sky Channel and audio visual consultant for Sony.
*** OFFICIAL SUPPORTS :::: LIL JON RUBY ROSE FLO RIDA NAUGHTY BY NATURE
In late 2008, Nufe and singer/songwriter Carl Fidler (Mayfield /Dead Abigails) formed “Hicksville” and Nufe moved back to Launceston to work on an album.
If you love your Hip Hop & RnB, House, Dance and Electro, make sure YOU come along .... n join in the fun @ The After Party, Lloyd’s Hotel, Launceston, Sunday, March 11th
By 1992 he was regularly DJing around Launceston at The Launceston Hotel, Batman Fawkner Hotel and The Pavillion.
Moving to Hobart in early 1995 he was playing alongside international act “Reel 2 Real” still riding high from their club hit “I Like To Move It” Midway through the year, he moved to Sydney when he was offered an internship at a Damien Gerrard Sound Studios.
Nufe’s passion for film and television put the DJing and music production on the back burner for a time. He began freelancing for various production companies, even occasionally finding himself in front of a camera as extras in The Wachowski Brothers “Matrix Revolutions”and SBS TV’s “Pizza”
The self titled debut was released the following year on iTunes and beatport. The video for the single “Eat My Bits” was played on ABC TV’s “Rage” twice in two weeks. After the release of the album, he worked at Southern Cross Television in Launceston,

Album Reviews CHEVELLE HATS OFF TO THE BULL
LAMB OF GOD RESOLUTION
MAYLENE & THE SONS OF DISASTER IV
LEONARD COHEN OLD IDEAS
Do yourself a favour and check this threepiece powerhouse hard rock band! As I have never understood why there popularity hasn’t reached Australia. The band writes well-crafted heavy melodic tunes worthy to be flogged on radio. Chevelle’s sixth album offers there trademark sound of hard hitting anthem hard rock mixed with a few acoustic numbers. Constantly being compared to clones of their influences Tool and Helmet and being classed as a Christianity group is all a load of tripe, there nothing alike and don’t preach. First single Face To The Floor is one track that signifies great tunes to follow, pummelling bass lines, smashing drums and chunky riffs giving you no option but to listen at thunderous volume. Songs Same Old Trip and Hats Off To The Bull are in the same vein as the first single and contenders for next single. The band has the capability of producing a full acoustic album, with tracks Prima Donna and Indifference shining through amongst all the roaring heaviness, singling out Pete Loeffler singing abilities as a brilliant vocalist. Pete’s brother Sam produces straight-forward drum playing yet always fitting with every song and never comes across monotonous. Bassist Dean Bernardini who’s the brother-in-law to the Loffler’s, bass lines are always audible through each song instead of being buried in the sound. Chevelle Continue the same recipe that’s always been faithful to them since 1999, having been a fan since there second album I’m yet to be disappointed! David Walker 9/10
Lamb Of God Resolution Love them or hate them, you can’t deny the bands popularity growing with each new release. It’s the band your grandparents will never appreciate, that band that pisses your girlfriend off every time you play it in the car, but something that makes fans of the band feel ecstatic! The bands seventh studio album is what you come to expect of LOG – solid ballbursting metal to send you head-banging like a frenzied bobble-head on a thousand Red Bulls! A mix of previous albums ‘Ashes Of The Wake’ and ‘Sacrament’ are what’s on offer with this release, total raw heaviness with some irresistible groovemetal numbers. First single ‘Ghost Walking’ begins with a spasmodic bluesy acoustic intro which is cut short ruthlessly unravelling in to mosh-friendly goodness which gets you grooving. Track ‘Number Six’ full of thrashy sound and a groove orientated chorus, sitting more favourably with the band than your full-throttle wall of sound on track ‘Cheated.’ The epic album closer ‘King Me’ is well crafted with its spoken word and orchestrated string sections combined with the bands signature sound.This album will sit comfortably with all fans regardless if you only like everything the band has done post ‘Sacrament.’ LOG has strived to impress both sides of the spectrum offering a release that is guaranteed to be one for those angry individuals looking for full-blown chunks of heavy metal. The band excels either way they go; there will be a constant loyal following for the band for as long as they exist. David Walker 8/10
WOW, this is a band that should have a lot more recognition then what they receive! Hailing from Birmingham in Alabama their blend of southern dirty metalcore music has evolved through the bands four albums. The band’s first three albums spanned the concept story of Ma barker And Her Sons, a criminal gang of the 1930’s, with each song being a chapter from the humble beginnings to the Barker’s family fateful end. The bands fourth album delves into new story content with topics of emotional comfort, being saved and fate. Firstly this album is more commercial and accessible then the first three. Most noticeably being Dallas Taylors (ex Underoath) vocals, showing that the front-man has a vocal range then just spewing vocals out like an average metalcore singer. It’s an album that will lose a lot of fans who are used to the bands super foot stomping harsh sound. The band manages to keep their underlying signature southern sound that would surpass most mainstream rock music that’s played on popular radio. Every song is solid with stand-out tracks ‘Open Your Eyes, ‘Fate Games’ and ‘Never Enough’ being three of the heavier songs. Song ‘Drought Of 85’ is your traditional acoustic MATSOD song full of thought and reflection, rounding out the album exceptionally. I personally enjoyed every song on the album, regardless of the new direction the band has decided upon, there direction has worked. Understandably this is not everybody’s taste of music but you can be reassured it’s easy to get hooked on the band’s sound with a few listens. David Walker 8.5/10
His best material since ‘I’m Your Man’ and ‘The Future’ – a massive return to form after the frankly perplexing ‘Dear Heather’ and politely received but unmemorable ‘Ten New Songs.’ Surprisingly this is only Cohen’s twelth studio album (on average he takes 4-9 years to make an album, this one took only 2 and there is rumored to be enough leftover for a second album. The 78 year old Buddhist Monk is in fine form and despite being a somewhat glum chap, Captain Mandrax, opens proceedings with, dare I say it, some humor, when he croons in that unmistakable bass baritone, ‘I love to speak to Leonard, he’s a sportsman and a shepherd, he’s a lazy bastard, living in a suit’ that prove beyond doubt that his poetic gifts and ability to mock himself remain as strong as ever. Teaming up with Patrick Leonard, the man who wrote ‘Like A Prayer’, ‘Cherish’and ‘La Isla Bonita’ for Madonna is a partnership that delivers three exceptional songs, notably the Tom Waits gospel inspired, ‘Show Me The Place.’ Another new collaborator is Anjani with whom he co-wrote her 2006 solo album, ‘Blue Alert.’ Surfacing from that period is the stripped back acoustic guitar driven ‘Crazy To Love You’ which would not sound out of place on his 1960’s era material. In fact many of these songs were written on acoustic guitar, the Grocer of Despair having regained his chops after years of playing keys. Sharon Robbinson, the co-writer of his best recent material (‘Everybody Knows’) is also featured here. Matt Sertori
DEBRA MANSKEY WOMAN ON THE EDGE OF THE WORLD
BALLPARK MUSIC HAPPINESS AND SURROUNDING SUBURBS
BEN WELLS AND THE MIDDLE NAMES (TAS) HOUSE COME HOME
JOSH DURNO (TAS) REPEATING MYSELF
Many would know Deb as the female vocalist from ARIA award winning, Wild Pumpkins at Midnight, or more recently as one half of the blues/roots Fringe Dwellers. Like her contemporaries, Deb had always enjoyed more recognition in Europe. Angie Hart and Monique Brumby have publicly acknowledged the importance of Manskey’s influence. I won’t go into why it took 13 years to make this album, but in many ways the songs tell so many beautiful stories of sadness and sorrow, perhaps it’s better to let the music tell the story. This is stripped back acoustic album, just vocal and guitar. “Drowning On Dry Land’ is perhaps the most intense song on this album, far more intimidating that anything PJ Harvey, Sinead O’Conner or Patti Smith have ever committed to tape. Sandy Bay’ is an un-mistakenly Tasmanian song, capturing feel of the suburb and referencing the landmarks, as John Lennon did when he sang the Rubber Soul era, ‘In My Life.’ But it’s not an entirely miserable experience, ‘Mr Invincible’ is a wonderful up-tempo slice of pop, as is ‘Beautiful Life.’ This album has been a long time in the making, it might be more accurately described as a greatest hits album, no doubt the toughest decision was deciding which of the hundreds of great songs she wrote in its preparation to banish to the orphanage. Manskey possesses one of the finest voices imaginable and if you buy this album you will discover, she is also one of the finest songwriters. Matt Sertori
Boy and Bear and Goyte may win all the Arias, but if there is any justice on God’s earth, the next big thing has got to be Ballpark Music. Currently headlining a national tour and playing sell out shows everywhere, Ballpark Music are writing some of the catchiest hook laden pop in the history of Australian music. This album contains at least 7 songs that could be contenders for all time classic Australian singles. The only reason only two made the Triple J Hot 100 is because fans obviously split their votes between an embarrassment of riches. What works for these guys are the brilliant iconic lyrics of songs like ‘Sad Rude Future Dude’ with its ‘I haven’t had a friend in years, I only have sex with myself’ hook that audiences hear once and sing along with immediately at live shows. Musically this is great band, blessed with a female bass player who is a fantastic backing singer and a quirky new wave keyboardist who doubles up as a trombone player. ‘Rich People Are Stupid’ is the hardest rocking track here and contains the anthemic line, ‘on my way to work, it’s Sunday morning and I feel mighty fine’ – it’s infectious pop and a song so perfect it hurts. ‘Shithaus’ has a hook influenced by Hawian music and is the best use of the phrase ‘AAAAAAAAAAAH’ in the history of rock. ‘Ifly’ is the one with the ‘I f**king love, I think your pretty’ lyric which is a live favorite. My only issue with this band is wondering how they will ever manage to top an album this good. Matt Sertori
From the moment I saw the charming pastel illustration of a very familiar Tasmanian sandstone house, this album felt like it was opening up its doors and invited me inside for a massive glass of red. The opening track, ‘Robin Hood’ is the stand out song on this release, containing a great riff and a feel that is reminmisicent of Modest Mouse, frankly it is a song that deserves to make any alternative radio station’s high rotation play list. In contrast ‘A Good Read’ is based around a dramatic and intense piano riff that suggests a darker side to proceedings. The jangly joyous ‘ My Dear Summer’ is pure Frente, it bounces along like the Beatles ‘Ob-Li-Di’ and like much of this album incorporates a unique violin sound, that gives the album a contemporary folk flourish – no doubt comparisons will be made to Boy and Bear. ‘Hey’ is yet another pop gem, a duet with violinist, Hannah Foyley, whose vocal performance is so accomplished, it made me want to find more about this unique performer. ‘Sinners’ closes the record and is a charming stripped back acoustic demo that drifts along like Paul Kelly’s ‘Careless’ – it’s a great track and beautiful finale for a powerful collection of songs. Having seen this band open at Falls, it is clear to me that they have what it takes to establish themselves on the festival circuit, with a live sound that is reminiscent of Josh Pyke Matt Sertori

The art on this cleverly packaged album is a serious of black and white pencil illustrations linked to the themes explored on the album and is quiet brilliant. Instrumentally, Josh has put together a strong band as well, the hard working Melbourne based, Joel Stibbard (Gallant Trees), the massively talented Prairie Nischler on backing vocals and another well known local singer songwriter, Gretel Templeton plays the violin. In contrast, the touring band are the Radio Silence boys and a man named Wookie, who looks uncannily like Chewbacca. So the packaging, instrumentation and production values are on the money, but what about the songs? The best song in this collection is ‘The House That Jack and Jill Built’ – it has a killer hook, a bridge where Josh sings ‘you put too much water in your mortar’ – I have no idea what that means but I love it and having seen it live would say his new band, the Sketches deliver the more definitive version. The collection concludes with the hard rocking, ‘After Party’ which I have to admit goes off live and is usually the one he ends his sets with. The recorded version is more polished and reminisnent of the Crowdies song, ‘Locked Out.’ It’s a great track for highlighting the range in Durno’s vocals, his tenor voice hits the high notes in a manner that sends a shiver down the spine in a way few singers do these days. Matt Sertori
THE BROTHERHOOD OF THE WOLFMOTHER Within a decade the rambunctious Australian rock band Wolfmother have done and seen it all, with two albums, two line-up changes, a hiatus, a multitude of awards and nominations within Australia and overseas and not to mention having a song feature in the most epic part of Shrek 2.
They are a band with an incredibly distinctive sound and ability to mix heavy old school riffs with their singer’s distinctive and thrilling voice. Wolfmother have the gift of creating catchy and solid rock songs. They are a band that has weathered the storm of an almost indefinite hiatus. After two founding members decided to leave, they are lucky to have a front man like Andrew Stockdale to captain the almighty ship that is Wolfmother. As he plugged the leaks that the former bassist and drummer created with Aidan Nemeth, Ian Peres and Dave Atkins. Stockdale managed to create a new four piece,
who played under the name of White Feather for a short time before reclaiming the moniker of Wolfmother to restore it to its former glory and shortly after released Cosmic Egg and has continued from strength to strength since.
“…and you’re in a really good band and it’s like a brethren, like a brotherhood and you’re in there and you’re all kind of. You forget you’re even playing this music, you just lose yourself in this groove.” – Andrew Stockdale, front man. There is a kind energy that is brought forth especially with early, iconic songs off their debut album ‘Wolfmother’, peaking at number 3 on the Australian charts, such as ‘Woman’ and ‘Joker and the thief’ have given way to the newer sound of ‘Cosmic Egg’ which again reached number 3 on Australian charts but both albums have the raw sound that was made for touring and playing live which is what they are best at. Stockdale admits that they write their music for the live stage and while they are always progressing and moving forward, they will continue to play
their older hits for that fact that “…those songs like ‘Woman’ and ‘Joker and the thief’ are always good live.
“We wrote them for a gig, for a live context so it suits it, it just works and gets the band going and that’s the beauty of a hit. You get a hit song and that thing just works, I don’t know why but it just keeps working. I don’t fight it, I’m not conflicted about it.” And like any good Australian rock band they are inspired by the legends of pub crawls and getting a crowd riled up, ACDC. Taking inspiration from the attitude and larrikin charm that comes through on records such as TNT, Wolfmother have used the energy of those who have come before to lead way to a new future of rock. But now Wolfmother have fans on the edge of their seats with talk of a very near release of a third album. Andrew Stockdale, the long standing singer of Wolfmother, with that unforgettable

fro, tells us of 15 very strong songs all in postproduction which in his own words “Have a bit of swagger, magic and attitude of the first record. It’s got that rock and roll, that certain thing.” Undeniably the band is rearing and ready to go with their newest album, only to be held up by the rigmarole of their label, (but that’s no skin off their nose) when they get to play with a rock legend like Lenny Kravitz over the next month during his Australian tour. They’re setting sail for things better and bigger than before. Revisiting Kravitz’s older work and getting themselves excited for the first tour with Hamish from the Vines set to fill in for former Drummer, Dave Atkins, Wolfmother, along with The Cranberries, are supporting Lenny Kravitz, who will play at the Derwent Entertainment Center on March 28th.

SUGARCANE COLLINS’ BELOVED is THE BLUES Queensland bluesman Sugarcane Collins is back this summer and doing what he does best, touring the east coast of Australia. Not too many performers load up the truck and spend ten to twelve weeks travelling ten to twelve thousand kilometers from north to south and back again. But for this one of a kind singer/ songwriter/guitarist - it is a labour of love. Says Collins “ Just like the old timers in the deep south of the USA, going from town to town playing the highways and byways is what the blues is all about “. The image of the wandering bluesman travelling up and down the continent driving long hours to play in rowdy bars deep into the night may not be everyone’s idea of fun, but Sugarcane is glad about being out on the road again. “ It’s a real adventure. I’m always making new friends, seeing new sights, finding new places to play. l love it “ says Collins. With a strong personal narrative pulsing through his songs the albums BARRON DELTA BLUE ( 1999 ) and LAKE STREET SERENADE ( 2003 ) brought him multiple awards and much critical acclaim. But it was the release of WAY DOWN THE RIVER ( 2006 ) that has cemented his place in the upper echelons of blues performers. Described by critics in the USA as “outstanding” “remarkable” “authentic” “masterpiece”, in this country it received highest honours by winning the Australian Blues Album of the Year. Mike Daly of the Melbourne AGE said “ Collins has achieved such an authentic sound it’s hard to believe all 13 tracks are home-grown Cairns originals”. A hardened road warrior, Sugarcane Collins rides the blues highway all over the world for all he is worth. In 2009 he made history by being the very first Australian to play the blues in Argentina and in 2010 he added Turkey to his itinerary when he appeared at the Kas Rock & Blues Festival. Thirty years on the road as a professional musician coupled with a deep understanding of blues history makes for great entertainment whenever this spellbinding solo blues performer commands the stage.

Western Australian conservation group, Save the Kimberly. Nor is hip local Adam Cousens a stranger to singing for a cause and has been known to play at local benefit concerts. McGuire’s Eve of Destruction is almost as famous for the line, “You’re old enough to kill, but not for votin’” as for the song itself. Shamefully, at least a generation after the vicious and ultimately pointless Vietnam war, that line could still apply to Australia, where you can still join the Australian Defence Force if you’re younger than 18. So it still stands in Australia that you can be a solider before you can vote. And that just ain’t right. Improving democracy may not be sexy but it’s often improving the boring nuts-and-bolts issues which can bring about real change. Take political donations. Currently, big business gives millions to MPs and political parties. Corporations don’t spend this money because of generosity or altruism. They spend it because it will help further their business aims, whether selling more ciggies, bombs or booze. And when that money comes from Big Tobacco, Big Pharma, gambling, property developers, arms manufacturers etc etc, who all expect bang for their big bucks, that presents a real dilemma for our democratic system. Especially Tasmania’s, which although one of the world’s fairest, still lags most other Australian states and territories by not having its own political donations laws.
Money talks! So speak up on political donations As Tasmania’s bastion of quality music hackery, Sauce readers may or may not be familiar with last year’s viral pop sensation, Rebecca Black. (That’s viral as in dangerous disease, as well as internet hit.) The US poppet is notorious for her uber-frothy track, Friday, the crux of which is her teenangsting over whether to sit in the front or back of her friend’s car. It’s a tough life. Listen to it at your peril - exposure may result in bleeding ears. Sadly, Friday will probably be lost to the mists of time. Or remembered by future generations for all the wrong reasons.
The Australian political system received about $231 million in political donations in 2010-2011. Unlike Friday, there are some tracks which seem automatically destined for the United Nation’s Official Best Songs Ever directory. But some are just instant classics. And some are just aren’t. Like Friday. Barry McGuire’s Eve of Destruction is definitely on the UN’s list. It might be nearly 50 years old, but what with war, climate change and financial meltdown as our collective and pretty depressing wallpaper, McGuire’s anti-Vietnam anthem has never seemed more relevant. Step into the indie scene and people like John Butler, Xavier Rudd and Blue King Brown power messages through music at Make poverty History concerts and at environmental protests, such as the Walk Against Warming in Tasmania’s Florentine forest last year or advocating for the
But Tasmanian voters are kept stupid by the system because we go to the ballot box not knowing which company is putting how much money into an MPs’ pocket. Donations under $11,500 are anonymous but a single donor can still make multiple donations, or split it between states. Or make a donation to the NSW Liberals, who could then privately share the cash with the Tasmanian Liberals. More money means more influence, for example, for a candidate to buy adverts or pay for campaign staff. It can also mean that if they’re a completely hopeless candidate, who wouldn’t otherwise stand a chance, they are more likely to get elected just because they’re cashed up.
But democracy is not for sale. Or shouldn’t be. Reforming political donations is just one part of reforming our democracy. There’s also lowering the voting age to 16, which could enfranchise a whole new generation. And there’s e-voting. Is there any good reason why this isn’t being pioneered, especially when most people are online 24/7? So what can you do? For a start, you can give a stuff. You’re paying Tasmania’s Parliament and the MPs’ salaries, after all. And right now, around the world, in places like Syria and Egypt, people are dying in the struggle to enjoy the democratic rights we often take for granted. Yes, politics can be a turn off, but if you’ve got a better suggestion for a political system, answers on a postcard, please. After years of tip-toeing around the issue, Labor has finally agreed to act on political donations. Attorney General, Brian Wightman MP, has agreed to ban political donations by Big Tobacco. But this is just the start of cleaning up our democracy. So that this isn’t a wasted opportunity, it’s important that as many people as possible have their say. And that means you. So what I’m saying is say whatever you like about reforming political donations. But don’t say nothing. You can find out more on www.justice.tas.gov. au or http://mps.tas.greens.org.au/publications/ politicaldonations Tell Lara Giddings and Mr Wightman what you think they should be doing about political donations. All you have to do is email legislation. email@example.com. It doesn’t have to be long or detailed or profound – what counts is that you have your say. The choice is yours. You can agonise over whether to sit in the front seat or back seat. Or you can sit in the driver’s seat. Tom Allen works in Nick McKim MP’s Franklin electorate office.

the drama downunder & sti’s Sexually transmitted infections (STIs) are infections that are transmitted through close body contact, usually sexual. Sexual contact includes anal or vaginal penetration, oral sex, as well as touching, fingering or oral contact with the penis, anus or vagina. STIs can be caused by viruses (e.g. HIV, herpes, genital warts), bacteria (e.g. chlamydia, gonorrhoea), or parasites (e.g. crabs, scabies). The presence of an inflammatory STI (chlamydia or gonorrhoea), or an ulcerative one (genital herpes, syphilis, etc) increases the risk of getting, or passing on, HIV, even when there are no symptoms. When should you have an STI test? The more sex you have, the more frequently you should have a sexual health check-up to test for HIV and other STIs. All men who have sex with men should have a full sexual health check at least once a year, even if you only have one regular partner. If you or your partner have casual sex outside of your relationship, both of you should get tested. If you’re HIV positive, and are sexually active, it is recommended that these HIV positive men should have a syphilis test every 3 months as part of their routine HIV monitoring. You should also ask your doctor to test for the full range of STIs at the same time. It is also recommended that HIV-positive men should have a hepatitis C test once a year. If you are in a new relationship, monogamous or otherwise, it is advisable for you both to get a check-up as either of you may have contracted an STI from a previous partner. Indications (i.e. symptoms) that you may have an STI include: • • •
An unusual discharge from your penis Itching or stinging when you urinate Sores, blisters or rashes in the genital or anal area
Even if you show no symptoms, it is possible to have an STI and pass on the infection – especially if the infection is in the rectum or throat. Testing is the only way to know. You can register to receive free and confidential e-mail or SMS reminders to go for a sexual health check-up, using the Remind Me service on the Drama Downunder website (www. dramadownunder.info) What happens in an STI test? You can get a sexual health check from a GP or from a sexual health clinic. Sexual health clinics offer confidential STI (including HIV) testing, treatment and information. Specialist medical, nursing, counselling and interpreter services are also available. Public sexual health clinics are free, you don’t need your Medicare card, and you can be anonymous if you wish. Free condoms and lube are also available, and sometimes also needle and syringe programs. When you go for a sexual health check, your doctor will assess your risk by asking a series of questions about your sexual history. A full sexual health check-up should include all of the tests listed below. If you don’t have any symptoms a routine checkup should involve a: • • • • • •
Blood test for HIV; Blood test for syphilis and hepatitis A and B and, depending on your risk, for Hepatitis C Urine sample for chlamydia; Anal swabs for gonorrhoea and chlamydia (even if you aren’t anally penetrated, as STIs can be transmitted by activities like rimming and fingering); Throat swab for gonorrhoea; and Physical examination for genital herpes, genital warts, pubic lice and scabies.
If you have symptoms you may be offered different tests. An STI test can be done regardless of whether
“A STI screen at the Sexual Health Service is free of charge and totally confidential”
you have symptoms or not. For rectal or throat (pharyngeal) tests a swab will be taken with what looks like a long cotton bud. Swabs can be taken from the mouth, anus and penis. Some practitioners will let you take your own anal swabs if this is more comfortable for you. If you are concerned or feel uncomfortable about having swabs taken perhaps go to a sexual health clinic as they do these tests every day. For blood-borne viruses (BBV), such as HIV and hepatitis C, and bacterial diseases such as syphilis you will need to have a blood test. A small vial of blood will be taken for testing. Health care workers cannot test for STIs and BBVs without your permission. Test results can take up to seven to ten days to come back and you may need to make another appointment to receive these results in person. Telling: If you have an STI, or had one recently, contact all the people you’ve had sex with recently and suggest they get tested. Sometimes this isn’t easy. You might find it hard to tell your sex partners you have an STI.

state-wide skateboarding wrap
by scott atkins
It has been a rather productive summer in Tasmani, with team tours, demos, comps and new parks being planned and built all over the place. A few of the highlights over the past few months would firstly be the Aussie Converse team heading way down under for some statewide filming, a quick hobart demo and a bit of good old camping, they guys ripped! and they aren’t afraid to get their relaxation on either haha. The Jimmys team has 2 new riders, Daniel Mason from Hobart and Jack Atkins from Exeter, these boys are rad and going to do big things for Tasmanian skating. Daniel also headed down to Rosebery skatepark with the Hobart Jimmys crew for a demo day - you can check out the clip made by James James of the day on the Jimmys facebook wall. Speaking of James James, he has also made an awesome short film about the West hobart bowl, including jimmy himself and amazing 80s and 90s footage, RECON: WEST HOBART BOWL, TAS iwhich s also on the Jimmys facebook wall Last but not least, was the Tasmanian stop of the Nike SbA comp held at Devonport, the day started off looking like rain but soon cleared just before the finals which amped up the skaters big time! Competition was really tight, especially in the opens where they couldnt pick between the top contenders, so two wild cards where handed out. The results for the SbA comp: 14 and under 1st Fergus Doherty – 14 – Hobart, TAS 2nd Beau Kelly – 11 – Hobart, TAS 3rd Bradley “Biscuit” Saunders – 9 – Beaufort, VIC Opens 1st Nathan Mason – 21 – Hobart, TAS 2nd Kristian John Rowell – 20 – Turners Beach, TAS 3rd Ben Walters – 21 – Launceston, TAS 4th Laif Johannesen – 26 – Lauderdale, TAS (wild card) 5th Christoph Speer – 20 – Hobart, TAS (wild card)

roller derby roundup: CONVICT CITY ROLLERS
it’s game on! Time to scrounge twenty bucks and rehearse Eye of The Tiger – ROLLER DERBY is back for its second full season, commencing in Hobart on March 10th. I can tell you’re dying to know about the CCR Tiger clip that’s going off its face on YouTube. But first – the background behind that amazing piece of interpretive skate genius. It’s 2012. There are some derby tournaments in Australia, but it’s nothing like the state and national league system used in (language warning) netball or AFL.
“I can tell you’re dying to know about the CCR Tiger clip that’s going off its face on YouTube.”
Leagues like CCR, SIS, VDR and DSDL are sovereign entities. It’s like inventing a whole new country, each with different governing rules and policies.

To bout, leagues invite other leagues to compete, at any time during the season (February – November). On the mainland (excuse the expression), tournaments are more established, some even play leagues from the USA (omg) but here on the island, we have to entice mainland leagues across the water to bout against us (checking in skate gear = $).

Telling them to ‘come down to Tassie for a holiday’ can be surprisingly ineffective.
I hate the word viral. Just sayin’. This brings me to the season opener, in which the YouTube Tiger will feature as CCR mascot. Read the Grindhouseesque poster and come scream for Convict City when they take on the Homicidolls. If you feel the need to go against the grain, risk being heckled from the stadium and shunned at the after party, (don’t even bother, I’ll use parody as my defense) wear violet and black in support of our challengers.
