hile he may be best known as awkward scientist Egon Spengler in the spooky blockbuster ‘Ghostbusters’ and its ensuing sequels, Harold Ramis is also quite a dab hand at directing and writing (‘Ghostbusters’, ‘Stripes’ ‘Groundhog Day’, ‘Analyze This’, ‘Analyze That’) and this hilarious comedy is probably the pick of the bunch. With a stellar cast that includes such comedy heavyweights as Bill Murray, Rodney Dangerfield and Chevy Chase, how can you go wrong? The story revolves around a teenage caddy, Danny, who works at an elite country club. Danny sets out to win the club’s scholarship in a big golfing tournament and a barrel of fairway high-jinx ensues. Bill Murray steals the show as the bumbling greenskeeper Carl Spackler and while his sub-plot of trying to rid the greens of a pesky gopher seems a little ridiculous, it really works. The laconically hilarious Chevy Chase also gives one of the best performances of his career.

t’s ironic that a film called ‘Identity Thief’ has itself stolen the plotline of previous odd-couple-road-trip comedies, including the ‘80s John Candy classic ‘Planes, Trains & Automobiles’ and, more recently, ‘Due Date’. Sadly, this version of that old familiar story misses the mark, despite the best efforts of lead actors, Melissa McCarthy (‘Bridesmaids’) and Jason Bateman (‘Arrested Development’). Bateman is the nice guy who’s had a gutful of finishing last when McCarthy steals his identity, spends all his money and racks up a criminal conviction in his name. In this (implausible) reality, Bateman is forced to travel to Florida, apprehend McCarthy and bring her back to Denver, in order to avoid losing his job. The strong comedic actors have great chemistry and make the most of the weak script, written by Craig Mazin of ‘The Hangover II’ fame. Overall, Identity Thief is enjoyable but not particularly funny. Keep your expectations low and you’ll enjoy the ride.

Identity Thief – MA Reviewed at Reading Cinemas

ad it not been for the hilarious Aussie, Rebel Wilson, Pitch Perfect would have been just another average lighthearted teen comedy that could be accused of riding the coat-tails of the ‘Glee’ phenomenon. As it stands, though, Wilson brings a uniqueness and a freshness to proceedings that lift this film out of the glut of similar themed films and into the realm of the highly watchable. The Barden Bellas are a collegiate, all-girls a cappella singing group thriving on female pop songs and their perfect looks. After a disastrous failing at the previous year’s finals, they are forced to regroup. Among the new recruits is freshman Beca (Anna Kendrick), an independent, aspiring DJ with no interest in the college life. But after she meets Jesse (Skylar Astin), from a rival all-male a cappella group, Beca has a new outlook and takes it upon herself to help the Bellas find their new look and sound and get back into the game. Wilson absolutely steals the show as the awkward but utterly hilarious Fat Amy.

ere’s one that’s sure to have headbangers, both old school and new, salivating and raising the devil’s horns in anticipation. Beginning their career as Xecutioner in 1984, Obituary remains as one of the most influential and groundbreaking bands in the death metal genre, one which they helped to create. Combining hyper-speed guitar riffing, complex arrangements and guttural screams, the band created a bleak and violent soundscape for metal fans worldwide. From 1989 to 1992, Obituary released ‘Slowly We Rot’, ‘Cause Of Death’ and ‘The End Complete’. Three death metal masterpieces that have stood the test of time and, to this day, remain as must-have albums for any death metal fan. The ‘Rotting Slow in Australia’ tour will combine an historic set of classics from those three albums only. Don’t miss these metal legends in action.

fter releasing his wonderfully eclectic soul/pop debut EP, ‘The Wonder and The Hunger’ in 2011, Newcastle singersongwriter Daniel March is gearing up to release his debut long player ‘Love Castle Dreams’ this week which he said would be a much more focused affair. “The album is different to the EP on many levels,” March told TE. “The first one was essentially just a bunch of tracks that I had written over 18 months and I guess you could say it wasn’t very well planned – it was recorded in a garage in Charlestown with me playing pretty much all of the instruments – I guess you could say it was basically like a compilation of what I could do, whereas the new album is much more focused; I’ve got some amazing musicians on there. I think I’ve progressed quite a bit as a songwriter and I’d say I’ve got a much better idea of the direction I want to go in.” March, who recorded much of the album Stateside in Atlanta, Georgia, said while he quit his day job half way through last year to head to America, his intention initially was to travel but circumstances conspired to send him back to Australia with the majority of the album under his arm. “It was quite weird as when I went to the States, recording wasn’t in my mind as I went over there to travel and meet people,” he said. “I eventually met a guy

by the name of [Atlanta soul legend and India Arie’s bass player] Khari Cabral Simmons – and this guy has his hand in a lot of good pies – through mutual friends and he put the idea to me of recording a few songs and I ended up recording seven tracks.” While his previous effort straddled a few different genres concurrently, March said there was a large focus on soul on ‘Love Castle Dreams’. “I was really influenced by the likes of Marvin Gaye and Curtis Mayfield and so, for this album, I didn’t want to make it a tribute album, but I wanted to write songs that were similar in style to those guys – I wanted to write songs that I could’ve felt proud to give those guys to sing when they were alive,” he said. To help with the production costs of the album, March, following in the footsteps of an increasing number of up and coming musos, eschewed traditional channels in favour of crowdfunding to fill his coffers, launching a campaign on pozible.com. “I’ve donated to a few campaigns in the past so I thought it would be a good idea to pursue this avenue for the album,” he said. “I think, from a fan’s point of view, it’s good because it helps to restore a kind of personal relationship between the artist and fan that has become a bit lost in the digital age.” Catch Daniel March when he releases ‘Love Castle Dreams’ at The Royal Exchange Theatre on Saturday, April 13. Entry is $20 which also nets you a copy of the album.

ust one year shy of its tenth birthday, The Groovin The Moo Festival has quite the treat in store for moovers. The good folks at GTM moo-q have teamed up with the equally good folks at Music NSW to create a special an unmissable opportunity for emerging MCs and producers – an exclusive backstage songwriting workshop with one of Aussie hip-hop’s finest, Seth Sentry. Groovin The Moo and Music NSW are looking for talented MCs and producers of all ages and experience levels to enter via email. If you’re not already a ticket holder, you’ll win tickets and a spot in the workshop where you’ll hear Sentry share expertise and some invaluable advice for your career and music. Not a bad foot in the door at all. It seems that everything Sentry touches lately turns to some type of precious metal. He’s back on Aussie soil this month after a recent and all-conquering trip to the US of A. At Austin’s South By Southwest, the ‘Dear Science’ MC beat out US rappers Devin Miles and Snow Tha Productin in a one-song rap battle. The result? Sentry won an opening slot on a killer bill that features hip-hop heavyweights LL Cool J, Public Enemy, Ice Cube and

STILL JUICING THE HOOD STEPHEN BISSET

I

f there’s one guy that knows funny, it’s Marlon Wayans. From growing up in a family that includes fellow comedy geniuses, Damon, Keenon Ivory and Shawn, to hitting comedy paydirt on the groundbreaking sketch comedy show ‘In Living Colour’ (created by Damon and Keenan Ivory) as well as both writing and starring in such genredefining spoofs as ‘Don’t Be A Menace To South Central While Drinking Your Juice in the Hood’, the first two ‘Scary Movie’ flicks (co-written with Shawn and directed by Keenan Ivory), there’s no denying his comedy pedigree. Now, Marlon, along with his brother Shawn, will be heading our way next month for a tour that will bring the pair to Newcastle. When asked what people could expect from the show, Wayans was reticent to give too much away. “Man, I have absolutely no idea. We could come out there and maybe give you a scientific breakdown of a fart, who knows? What I do know is that it will be a hell of a lot of fun.” For the uninitiated, both Shawn and Marlon made their acting debut in Keenan Ivory’s feature ‘I’m Gonna Get You Sucka’ before joining the cast of the Emmy Award-winning comedy series ‘In Living Colour’ which included the likes of Jim Carrey, Jamie Foxx and Jennifer Lopez among its cast and Wayans said the show was a blessing in that it gave

him a solid grounding in comedy. “That show just prepared us for everything that came along after. I mean, sketch comedy is one of the hardest damn things you could do in this business and being on such a groundbreaking show as ‘In Living Colour’ was like going to the Harvard University of comedy – it really was a testament to my brother Damon and Keenan Ivory’s vision and talent.” The Wayans brood were also responsible for creating one of the most successful comedy franchises in film history with ‘Scary Movie’ and Wayans said no-one had any idea about the original film’s potential for success even if subsequent sequels may not have the same Wayans sparkle as the first two. “Yeah man, it was pretty wild, no-one had any idea, we all just went in and did it. That said, we were involved with the first two or what I like to call the funny ones. After that – well it’s kind of like having a new baby, a beautiful baby that you love and cherish and only want the best for and then that child grows up and becomes a crack addict.” While much of Wayans’ career has revolved around films, he said his love for stand up intensified after he was offered the role of Richard Pryor in a bio-pic that has, unfortunately to date, not come to fruition. “For me, being on stage is just such a blast,” he said. “It kinda all started when I was asked to play Richard Pryor in a movie and I basically had to learn how to kick ass on stage. I realised that in order to

School Holiday Fun !

play a great, I needed to learn how to be a great performer, which I’ve been working on ever since.” While he is best known for his comedic roles, Wayans showed he was no one-dimensional funnyman with his mesmerising dramatic turn as Tyrone C Love in Darren Aronofsky’s harrowing adaptation of the Hubert Selby Jr novel, ‘Requiem For A Dream’. While he said he would love to score more dramatic roles in the future, he said Hollywood was offering up some

Ph: 4960 1397

pretty stiff competition. “I would absolutely love to sink my teeth into more dramatic roles, but when you’re up against the likes of Denzel Washington and Jamie Foxx, it does make it pretty tough. Put it this way, if I was in ‘Django Unchained’, I wouldn’t have been the n***er holding the gun, I would have just been the n***er.” Catch the Wayans Brothers when they play at the Civic Theatre on Wednesday, May 15.

f you have had even a sniff of the Newcastle underground/punk rock scene, you would still be aware what a force the Australian Beefweek Show is. The brainchild of frontman Chris Wash, Beefweek have, in one form or another, been ramming their unique brand of folky,

punky booze rock and roll for more years than they’d probably care to remember. The band has seen its fair share of members over the years, but the current lineup – Chris Wash, Geoff Mullard, Errol Moyle, Anthony Frampton and Pete Moffit – is the longest standing at nine years and counting.

NO ALIBI NEEDED

J

aney’s Alibi is a Newcastleborn, highly versatile and entertaining band. All the members have plenty of experience in entertaining crowds around Australia. They are renowned for their flexibility to suit any occasion, according to the needs of the audience. Ranging from a ‘stripped down’ approach to a high energy performance that gets the dance floor pumping, the band features Tim Broadway on lead vocals and guitar, Brendan Kelso on drums, percussion and guitar, and Tim Gebethner on bass, vocals and the harp. If the likes of George Michael, Tom Petty, Greenday, CCR, U2, Jimmy Eat World, or Bruno Mars

float your boat, then you’d do well to check Janey’s Alibi out because these guys deliver and are sure to ensure your event will be a night to remember. Catch Janey’s Alibi when they play at Hotel Delaney on Saturday, April 13.

The band have just unleashed their latest long player – the utterly uncompromising ‘Everything You Say is S**t’ and it certainly pulls no punches – from the photo of Tony Abbott on the front cover, to songs with titles like ‘Window Licker’s Blues’, ‘I Believe in Greyhounds’ and ‘Flag Waving Scum’ – these guys grab you by the throat and refuse to let go. “It’s the best record we’ve ever made,” Wash told TE. “The songs are great,” Mullard added. “Chris wrote all of those songs except for two and I have to say some of the lyrics in there are quite confrontational, but that’s what we’re all about.”

The band are just as uncompromising in the live setting. There’s a kind of Replacements-esque urgency to these guys on stage – the whole thing teeters on the brink of collapse at almost every turn, yet never seems to. Make no mistake, these guys are the real deal. “You just can’t take music too seriously,” Wash said. “It’s meant to be entertaining – not a bunch of guys just looking at their shoes saying, ‘Here’s what I wrote in my bedroom yesterday’. That’s heaps stupid.” Catch The Australian Beefweek Show when they blow the doors off the Grand Junction Hotel on Friday, April 12 before doing the same at the Lass O’Gowrie on Saturday, April 13.

could expect a much more intimate affair. “The show has been downsized a fair bit and we’ll be taking it into smaller regional venues,” Anu told TE. “But it is more about intimacy and getting right back to the basics of the song.” Anu, who first came to national attention with the Neil Murray-penned

people like Darren Percival backstage and I just couldn’t believe it – I was basically saying ‘wow’ all night. I definitely don’t take this life for granted.” Aside from wowing audiences across the country with her voice, Anu has also been wowing with her acting talent, taking on the role of Bloody Mary in the Brisbane season of the hit musical ‘South Pacific’ – a turn she will reprise when the production comes to Sydney later this year. “Yeah, that was such a great experience and she is such an amazing character – although I’d have to say I’ve never worked to such tight deadlines in my life. It was a real pressure cooker, but to work with the likes of Gyton Grantley, Teddy Tahu Rhodes and Lisa McCune was just amazing. It really is awesome that I get paid to do this.” Catch Christine Anu when she performs ‘Rewind – The Aretha Franklin Songbook’ at Lizotte’s Lambton on Friday, April 19.

song ‘My Island Home’, said she had always been influenced by Franklin but it wasn’t until she embarked on ‘Rewind – The Aretha Franklin Songbook’ tour that a much deeper connection to Franklin’s music developed. “Aretha means more to me now than she ever did in the past, appreciationwise – the lady has covered so many genres in her career and she is just so clever and unique as a performer,” she said. “It is a really eye-opening experience going through all of these songs because it really is like having a master class with Aretha herself and it’s also quite a workout. “Soul music, especially Aretha’s music, is all about getting inside yourself and giving yourself that workout – although a soul workout isn’t so much physical, it’s more like having a really great cry. It’s really quite cathartic.” Anu, who has been a part of the pantheon of formidable Aussie singing talent since she released her debut long player ‘Stylin’ Up’ in 1993, said she had no idea, at the time, that her breakout single ‘My Island Home’ would launch a 20-year career that shows no sign of abating. “I never in a million years thought that song would be the catalyst for the career that I have now because, at the time, I wasn’t even an artist in development – I was employed as a dancer [at the Bangarra Theatre Company] and I basically made the decision to pursue music full time and I had to go on the dole to support myself. Then Neil [Murray] heard me singing and the rest is history. Neil was a great influence and he really taught me that songs are essentially stories that belong to the people.” While there’s no denying that Anu has definitely made it, the mother of two said she still has her fair share of ‘pinch me, I must be dreaming’ moments. “I think these days I am a better singer than I was in the beginning and I think that’s because I’m getting more used to my voice, I mean, I never really sang in front of people when I was younger,” she said. “I also still find myself thinking ‘is this real?’ from time to time and I still definitely get starstruck.

outed as the best kept secret in Aussie hip-hop, Sydney duo Jackie Onassis have barely had time to scratch themselves. In just a few short months, the unsigned duo, comprising of MC Kai and DJ/Producer Raph, have evolved as one of the hottest Australian acts of 2013. From humble beginnings as rap-obsessed schoolmates, to coveted slots on UK festivals, plays on influential UK tastemaker Zane Lowes BBC Radio 1 show, and bidding wars from labels both here and internationally, there’s a lot of people talking about Jackie Onassis right now. A dream start to 2013 saw the duo from Sydney’s inner west score a coveted slot on the bill of their hometown’s Big Day Out festival courtesy of Triple J Unearthed. A massive hit with ‘Crystal Balling’ on Triple J ensued which then quickly followed with international shout-outs from UK radio tastemakers Zane Lowe and Rob Da Bank. Both Zane Lowe and Rob Da Bank gave ‘Crystal Balling’ air time and props on their respective shows, with Lowe following Triple J’s lead by anointing Jackie Onassis as his ‘Next Hype’ act to watch out for in 2013 and a tweet from Rob Da Bank with the link to the ‘Holiday’ EP, crashing the Sydney duo’s host sever, twice. Jackie Onassis are currently kicking more goals on a national tour with fellow Aussie hip-hop goal

kickers Spit Syndicate that will bring them to Newcastle. To top off a stellar start to 2013, and cementing their demand outside these shores, they have been booked to perform The Great Escape Festival in the UK and 3 club shows in London including the infamous Club NME. The duo’s knack for weaving dense storytelling, Gen-Y commentary and energetic, catchy choruses, amongst textured, upfront production is captured perfectly on the free download Holiday EP – home to ‘Crystal Balling’, the track that has public broadcasters on both sides of the equator so enamoured of the pair. Catch Jackie Onassis and Spit Syndicate when they perform at the Great Northern Hotel on Wednesday, April 24.

lvis. He was big in the ‘50s. He was bigger in the ‘60s. He was bloody huge in the ‘70s. Unfortunately for fans worldwide, the King shuffled off this mortal coil in 1977, but thankfully for Novocastrian fans, one man is keeping the spirit of the King alive. The Elvis experience started for Norm Bakker some 24 years ago when a sound engineer heard him sing and suggested that he should do an Elvis show given his uncanny resemblance to the King. From early on, Bakker slotted into the part with ease due to the fact that he demands nothing but the best from each performance. Sure, there are many Elvis impersonators, but few do it like Bakker. Be it a full production extravaganza or an intimate solo performance, Bakker can bring the spirit of the King. Make no mistake, Bakker has the finesse and expertise

hile she is perhaps best known for her inspirational turn on the SBS show ‘Go Back To Where You Came From’ and for her unique brand of Western swing, Newcastle muso Gleny Rae Virus is currently pricking up quite a few ears around the country with her latest album, ‘Whojigadandy’. Recorded with her freshly minted trio (Gleny Rae, Roy Payne and Douggie Bul) Rae said the album was named after a phrase her father used to use to describe a thingamajig or doohickey.

“It really is the perfect title for the album because there is quite a lot going on in there,� she said. “There’s obviously still that pure Western swing element, but we’ve branched out a little bit more with a bit of New Orleans horns, calypso, an old country standard and even a bossonova. I was struggling to come up with the name and then I though of ‘Whojigadandy’ which was perfect because there is so much variety. Although, I’ve never really been trapped in a particular genre.

espite shuffling off this mortal coil at the tender age of 22 after a horrific plane crash that also claimed the lives of fellow rock and roll legends The Big Bopper and Richie Valens, the music of Buddy Holly refuses to die. Tracks like ‘Peggy Sue’, ‘Rave On’, ‘Oh Boy’, ‘Peggy Sue Got Married’ and ‘That’ll Be The Day’ helped define a generation and Holly, along with Elvis Presley, helped lay the foundation for the teenage phenomenon known as rock and roll. Holly would’ve been 75 this year and to celebrate, one the best Holly impersonators in the business, Scot Robin, will be bringing the Holly magic

to Newcastle with ‘Buddy Holly n Concert’. During this dynamic twohour production, Robin, who played the lead in the smash hit musical ‘Buddy’, backed by his very own Crickets, will perform more than 30 of Holly’s smash hits and will have you longing for the days when rock and roll was still full of wide-eyed possibility. Catch the ‘Buddy Holly in Concert’ show at Wests Lambton on Sunday, April 28.

t may’ve been quite some time between drinks for South Coast songwriter Genevieve Chadwick with her last album ‘Riding The Wind, Forgetting Time’ hitting the streets in 2011. However, Chadwick who has, quite rightly, earned comparisons to the likes of Janis Joplin (for her highly personal and husky vocal delivery) and John Butler (for her prodigious and fearless guitar playing) said she plans to redress that balance with a new album slated for release sometime this year – a year that is proving to be quite fruitful. “I’m just back home in Ulladulla for a few days, putting my feet up and taking a break from all of the craziness,” Chadwick told TE. All of that craziness has come in the form of a slew of festival performances, well as opening for UK songstress Joan Armatrading on her recent Australian tour as well as getting the new album together – an album that Chadwick said would retain the same passionate and honest lyrics and mesmerising guitar playing that is, in equal measure, frenetic and refined. However, she insisted that, this time around, the sound would be much larger thanks to contributions from multimedia world music project, Playing For Change. “It’s been a while since the debut came out so I’m really excited to be working on the new one,” she said. “We recorded it just two weeks ago with Mark Johnson from Playing For Change and I’ve got a few of the Playing For Change guys on the album and it’s been an absolutely brilliant experience playing with them. It’s essentially going to be a four-piece band album and hopefully we’ll have it out sometime this year.” For Chadwick, who sites the likes of Van Morrison and James Taylor as early

influences before she was enthralled by Nirvana and Pearl Jam in her teens, it was a case of being at a loose end that led to her picking up the guitar. “My desire to play really did come from childhood boredom – as soon as I picked it up it just got me – I totally fell in love with it.” Her early passion for the instrument has only intensified over time and she said that, coupled with an innate wanderlust, is what defines her. “Playing my music to people is just such a big part of who I am, I don’t consider it a job, it’s something that I

absolutely love,” she said. “I really do think I’m a nomad, I just love being somewhere new.”

ove him or hate him, there’s no denying that Kevin “Bloodyâ€? Wilson is an Australian comedy icon. For the past 29 years, Wilson has been waging war against the wowsers with his unique and utterly crude larrikin humour and he is showing no signs of slowing down, embarking on a 12-date tour that will bring him to Charlestown Bowling Club tonight (Wednesday, April 10). “I just f***ing love touring, mate,â€? Wilson enthused. “It doesn’t really matter where I’m playing, I always have a bloody ball – the best part of what I do, what I’m all about, is live performance.â€? Joining Wilson on the tour will be his daughter, with the equally risquĂŠ stage name of Jenny Talia, and he said he was as proud as punch that his daughter could match the comedy legend in the bawdy stakes. “It’s bloody wonderful that she’s on the road with me,â€? he said. “She was actually a very good country singer and she was based in Nashville for two years. “I was doing a

pretty big tour in the UK and she saw my dates on my website and called me up and said ‘Dad, you need a support act, you can’t do all those shows yourself,’ and I said ‘I’d love to but I just can’t find anyone’, and then she replied ‘Dad, I’ve been f***ing your songs up for years’, which I had no idea about – she also had a bunch of other songs, party pieces – that she would pull out for her friends that are just bloody hilarious.� Catch Kevin “Bloody� Wilson when he plays at Charlestown Bowling Club on Wednesday, April 10.
