irected by John Frankenheimer (‘The Island Of Dr Moreau’, ‘Reindeer Games’) this taut and gripping political thriller is easily one of Frank Sinatra’s finest acting moments and streets ahead of the predictable Denzel Washington remake. During the Korean War, the Soviets capture an American platoon and take them to Communist China where Staff Sergeant Raymond Shaw (Laurence Harvey) has been brainwashed by the Communists as a ‘sleeper agent’ ready to assassinate the US president. It’s up to army buddy Captain Bennett Marco (Sinatra), who suspects something’s amiss, thanks to a recurring nightmare he has of Shaw murdering two members of his squad while brainwashed, to unravel the elaborate plot.

sychadelic Pill’, country rock warbler Neil Young’s 35th album and his second this year since reuniting with his long–time band, Crazy Horse, is an absolute doozy that, without any hint of hyperbole, deserves to sit alongside the likes of such classic Young sets as ‘Zuma’ and ‘On The Beach’. As soon as you press play, you immediately know it’s a Crazy Horse record with the opener ‘Drifitn’ Back’ – a sprawling 27-minute behemoth that starts off as a nice and subtle acoustic number before Crazy Horse (Billy Talbot, Ralph Molina and Frank ‘Poncho’ Sampedero) inject themselves into proceedings, lurching the song forward with their trademarked rock and roll power and rehearsed sloppiness. Other standouts include the autobiographical tracks ‘Born in Ontario’ and the dirty rocker ‘Twisted Road’. Psychedelic Pill is a fantastic album and a must for fans who may have written Shakey off after some less-than-stellar previous outings including ‘Americana’ and ‘Greendale’.

f you’re a fan of the original Three Stooges, whose 190 short films (of the 220 films in total!) made for Columbia between 1934 and 1959 became genre-defining slapstick classics, you’ll probably want to avoid this rather flaccid Farrelly brothers (‘There’s Something About Mary’, ‘Me, Myself and Irene’) reboot like the plague. If, however, you have a child aged between 12 and 14 who hasn’t the slightest inkling of the Stooges’ cultural significance, they’ll have a hoot. This time around, we meet Larry, Curly and Moe as babies left on the doorstep of an orphanage. The trio grow up under the care of a group of long-suffering nuns, nyuk-nyuking their way through a series of knuckleheaded escapades. Predictably, the orphanage comes under financial threat and it’s up to the Stooges to head out into the world to save their home. Of course they become embroiled in a kooky murder plot, to boot. ‘Seinfeld’ writer and ‘Curb Your Enthusiasm’ star Larry David does provide some chuckles as Sister Mary Mengele.

ow, here’s one that’s a little bit left of centre, but a definite must for fans of animation everywhere. Chances are, if you’ve watched any cartoons or played any video games over the past 20 years, you’ve heard the voices of Billy West and John DiMaggio. Between them, these guys have given voice to hundreds of characters and have popped up in such iconic fare as ‘Ren and Stimpy’, ‘Kung Fu Panda’, ‘Spongebob Squarepants’, and video games such as ‘Gears of War’, ‘Final Fantasy’ and ‘Rayman’. However, it is definitely for their roles on Matt Groening’s iconic ‘Futurama’ that this pair are best known - West the voice of Phillip J Fry and DiMaggio the man behind the robotic anti-hero, Bender Bending Rodriguez. West and DiMaggio will enthrall the audience with tales from the top of the voice acting tree along with a Q&A session and a screening of highlights from their careers.

ife is pretty sweet for Brissy four piece, The Oceanics. Given the band has only been the Oceanics since 2010, it’s a pretty solid testament to their seemingly boundless energy that they would have already released two EPs, ‘Get Friendly, Mistress Maybe’ and ‘Bright People’. Not ones to rest on their laurels, The Oceanics have just released a freshly minted new single ‘The City’ and if it doesn’t have feelgood hit of the summer written all over it, them I’m not here. In support of the single, the band are smack band in the middle of a national tour that will bring them to Newcastle and frontman and lead chest hair (yes, it does actually say that on their Facebook page) Elliott Weston said the tour couldn’t be going more swimmingly. “Everything is going brilliantly – couldn’t be going better” he told TE. “Our first show in Brisbane was great, Melbourne was awesome and Byron Bay was an absolute blast probably one of the best nights on the tour so far, although we haven’t been to Newcastle yet, so we’ll see.” Coming well and truly from the pointy end of nouveau Brit-Pop of bands like Bloc Party, the Oceanics latest single ‘The City’ bristles with an infectious pop intensity that belies the bands age and Weston said that while the previous EP was a strong release, the new single represents a new phase for the burgeoning band.

“Looking back on ‘Bright People’, we’ve got no regrets with it at all – while there’s probably no real huge standout tracks on it, it’s a really strong group of songs,” he said. “Now we’re really concentrating on our songwriting – we’ve set ourselves a deadline of maybe around 2 or 3 songs per month with the aim of getting a long player out there at sometime later in the new year.” For now though, it’s all systems go for The Oceanics, along with the odd quashing of rumours here and there. “There was this strange rumour going around about us that we were a really sleazy bunch of guys, but we’re really not. Or maybe we should just go with it.” Catch the Oceanics when they play at The Great Northern on Friday, November 3.

ady Julia Morris (yes, she is an actual Lady, after her husband bought her the title of Lady of the Manor of Gosforth over the internet) really does not want to judge people – but she seems to be having a hell of a time of it.

“Around about 12 months ago, I decided that I wasn’t going to judge people for 12 months and I reckon the whole thing lasted for about half an hour, maybe an hour, tops,” the comedian told TE. “Everything seems to be going fine until I nearly get taken out by another white Range Rover at the school drop off and I’m back.” If a no judgement policy is hard for Morris, then having others not judge her

is an even harder task. “I recently bought a new car, well a new, second-hand car that was actually sold to me by a dear Newcastle buddy of mine’s niece and would you believe that the car is a Nissan Micra? Honestly, it’s the most ridiculously small car ever and every time I’m in it I can just feel everyone judging me,” she said. “Honestly, I really do feel sorry for the people who have to have to follow me on the F3.” Morris will, once again, be heading down the F3 to Newcastle for her latest show – aptly titled ‘No Judgement’, which she said would chronicle her journey to try and kick the judgement habit. “It’s really going to be me going into lurid detail about all the times I’ve judged and when I’ve been judged for things like, maybe my not-quite ideal parenting style,” she laughed. Morris, who first came to our attention on the sketch comedy show Full Frontal before heading over to the UK, returned to Australia in 2007. Since coming back, while still keeping true to her comedy roots, Morris has also re-invented herself as a reality TV star, winning the inaugural seasons of singing contest ‘It Takes Two’ and ‘Celebrity Apprentice’. “The whole reason I moved to the UK in the first place was I was so disgusted with reality TV – I had a real problem with it,” she said. “But, by the tenth year, I started thinking, ‘This shit ain’t going away’ so, when I came back to Australia, I was asked to do Dancing With the Stars and I said ‘no way’ as I’m not the best dancer, but when I was asked to do It Takes Two, as a card-carrying member of the Gosford Musical Society, I jumped at the

chance.” Morris, never one to paint herself into a corner, has also wowed audiences in her first dramatic role as Gemma in the surprise hit, ‘House Husbands’, which has just been picked up for a second season. “I genuinely can’t believe my luck,” she said. “I mean, this time last year I was attending drama school. I remember when I saw the script I thought, ‘Who wrote this?’ I initially said that I would like a small walk-on role which I auditioned for and I got the call asking if I’d consider committing to six months of filming. I mean, wow.” Morris, who stars opposite perennial Aussie TV hunk Gary Sweet, said now that she’s well and truly in the show, she is starting to exert her influence on the show’s writers. “I keep trying to convince them to write more kissing scenes with me and Gary,” she said. “He’s such a lovely guy – although my husband was a bit iffy with me playing Gary’s wife onscreen, but at the end of a day’s filming, I’d come home feeling a little, shall we say, amorous, so now he’s kind of appreciative of him. Gary Sweet has become my marital fluffer.” Catch Julia Morris when she performs at Lizotte’s Lambton on Thursday, November 8.

nyone that proclaims the death of vinyl in favour of intangible bits of data pumped into our ears via MP3 players has obviously never been to the Newcastle Record and CD Fair. Now in it’s tenth year, the Fair is proof positive that there is still a lot of love for those big black discs of crackly gold. The Fair began life way back when at the Wickham Martial Arts Hall but soon outgrew its original digs - it’s now a twice-yearly event at the Uniting Church Hall in Beaumont Street, Hamilton that regularly draws more than 400 people. Organiser and resident Novocastrian vinyl nut Stan Sykes said he hoped the next Fair would be the biggest yet, breaking the 500-punter barrier. “The idea is that people coming through the door will be confronted with a hall full of vinyl to please the avid collector and music lover who just loves rummaging through the record and CD bargain bins,” he said. “Newcastle is becoming well-known for its selection of second-

hand and new vinyl shops and the Fair is very much an extension of this with a huge range that wouldn’t normally be available locally on such a scale.” The Newcastle CD and Record Fair will be on at the Uniting Church Hall, Hamilton on Sunday, November 4.

ewcastle muso Darren, one half-of the popular duo Wicked, has gone solo to entertain the masses. Aside from his work in Wicked, Darren has also made quite a bit of a name for himself as the founding lead guitarist in The Viper Creek Band whose debut single ‘Crazy Tonight’ picked up a considerable amount of interest throughout the country. His remarkable talent, combined with his unique style and nimble fingers, allows Darren to play virtually any style with ease. He has been part of the professional music scene for the past 17 years, as a performer and also as a sought-after session musician. This is one muso that has quite-rightly earned a reputation as being one of the slickest guitarists around. Catch Darren when he plays at Bar 121 on Friday, November 12.

he Valley View Restaurant at the Adamstown RSL offers up a formidably large menu. Well, two menus in fact. The first is a celebration of classic pub and club fare with dishes such as crumbed lamb cutlets, veal saltimbocca, pepper steak and the mighty chicken schnitzel, while the second concentrates on Chinese fare with all the favourites – Mongolian lamb, garlic king prawns, and sweet and sour pork getting an airing. Honestly, once you factor in the specials board you have more than 150 dishes to choose from and chef Tony Tam manages this Herculean task without barely breaking a sweat. After a considerable time perusing this tome, my dining partner and I decided to start our Valley View odyssey with a mixed entrÊe of prawn toast, spring rolls and dim sims. All portions were fresh and crisp and the toast was fit to burst with a beautifully-cooked prawn filling. The lightly seasoned pork dim dims were delightful as were the spring rolls. Next up, it was time for the mains and I opted for the Chinese menu, ordering the sizzling king prawns. This dramatic dish definitely turned a few heads when brought from the kitchen and looked and sounded as good as it tasted. A beautifully-cooked medley of vegetables (beans, capsicum, onion, bok choy, carrot) provided the bed

for a galaxy of succulent, fresh and firm king prawns. The addition of the slightly spicy sauce with strong honey and ginger overtones really made this dish sing – both on the plate and on the palate. My dining partner ordered off the

specials menu, choosing a medium-rare New York steak. This generous portion came topped with a lightly seasoned creamy mushroom sauce that matched the melt-in-your-mouth tender steak perfectly. A side dish of cauliflower with cheese, yellow squash in fresh tomato

sauce, green beans and broccoli was the icing on the steak. With a menu the size of a short story and a range of desserts (including deep fried ice cream) that remained untouched, a repeat visit to the Valley View Restaurant is an absolute must.

asmanian bluegrass outfit, The Pigs, are in hog heaven. After wowing the audience and judges alike with their infectious brand of hootenanny-ness on the national talent quest ‘Australia’s Got Talent’, the band are riding high on the crest of their brilliantly self-effacing second long player ‘The Great Bluegrass Swindle’. “All of us Pigs are supremely impressed with this fine collection of Pigs tracks and instant classics,” singer, T-Bone Pig, told TE. The album, which is a seamless mix of Pigs originals including the likes of ‘Poor Emily’ and ‘Adrian Married A Megaspunk’ and unique interpretations of such international chartbusters as LMFAO’s ‘Party Rock Anthem, Kanye West’s ‘Gold Digger’ and the Depeche Mode classic ‘Just Can’t Get Enough’, T-Bone said that choosing the songs to be given the Pigs treatment wasn’t as problematic as you might imagine. “We spent about 12 months writing all of the Pigs originals for the album and then we headed to Sydney to record it over ten banjo-filled days in June – we had a blast,” he said. “In terms of picking the songs we wanted to cover, it was actually quite easy because we just looked at those songs that could do with a bit of improvement and, let’s face it, everything sounds better when played on a banjo – it’s just a fact.”

The Pigs were put well and truly on the musical map earlier this year when they wowed both the judges and audience on Australia’s Got Talent with an uproarious rendition of the Beyonce charttopper ‘Single Ladies’. Even the ‘hanging judge’ Kyle Sandilands was full of praise for the boys. “Yeah, I didn’t like it. I loved it, loved it, loved it,” he proclaimed and T-Bone said the band had no idea that they would elicit such a response. “It was fantastic,” he said. “We really had no idea that we were going to do so well – I was really only there for that Dannii Minogue and I was getting some pretty positive signals from her, too, which was nice.” While they seem to have only sprung up from the pigpen, The Pigs have been plying their infectious trade both here and overseas for the past six years. In 2010, the band headed over to Europe for shows in Germany and Denmark and T-Bone said while the European audience may’ve been a bit unsure about these four blokes from the Antipodes, they soon warmed to their sound. “I’d say, initially, they were shocked, then there was a bit of disgust and then they tended to warm to us, so after we’ve toured the album a bit here, we’re looking at heading back over next year as well as looking to getting over to the US, to the home of bluegrass and give them a taste of our Aussie flavours.” Check out The Pigs when they play at Newcastle Leagues Club on Friday, November 16.

hen it comes to the Newcastle covers scene, few do it as well as Hornet – as US audiences are

finding out. The band is currently stateside on a bit of a whirlwind trip and front man Ty Penshorn said it was definitely an exciting time for the band. “We’re booked to perform at a Real Estate Foundation function at the Four Seasons Hotel in Vancouver, Canada,� he said. “We were spotted by an events organiser who thought we would be the perfect act for the night. We end up in Las Vegas and have also managed to organise a stint at the House of Blues, Mandalay bay Casino.� For the uninitiated, Hornet rose from the ashes of late ‘90s pop-rockers and regular fixture on the Newcastle gig scene, Little Hornet. “We experienced a bit of a line-up change around the year 2000 and the current line-up has been together ever since,� he said. “During our time, the band experienced top-ten single releases and sold in excess of 10,000 units - fun times for anyone who can remember when the King Street Hotel was called The Castle.� After touching down in Australia, with barely time to scratch

themselves, Hornet will be performing a special Melbourne Cup show at the Premier Hotel, and Penshorn promises it will be a typically accomplished an energetic affair. “We are a tight outfit – the great thing about a band that stays together for so long is we end up knowing a lot more music together, so we gradually eliminate all the not-so-amazing tunes. Melbourne Cup shows are always a fun day and the Premier is great, so it should be an awesome day.� Aside from plugging away with Hornet, Penshorn is just about to release his debut solo single ‘No Money No Honey’. “The title speaks for itself,� he said. “It’s a bluesy/rock tune inspired by the Stones and Southern USA rock – lots of guitars and classic sounds. It’s currently in the final mixing stages and I plan to shoot a film clip as soon as we return from overseas.� So for a muso who has played more Newcastle gigs than he’s had hot dinners, how has the scene changed over the years? “It’s taken a major step backwards – lately it’s a struggle to find a venue with a stage, a band room and rider etc. I guess it will come back like most great things do. Rock and roll will never die.� Catch Hornet when they play at the Premier Hotel on Tuesday, November 6.

WHAT A HOOT N

ow, this is one Newcastle band that you’d better (ahem) give a hoot about. When they released their “choppier than a butcher’s sideburns� debut single, ‘Go, Let It Go’, The Owls pricked up quite a few ears across the country - via community radio and Triple J - for their engaging and highly original nod to Britpop. Their subsequent self-titled EP showed they were no one-trick ponies either, with touches of mellow country and even a splash of new-wave that demanded repeat listens thanks largely to some booming production and front man Josh Bailey’s signature drawl. If The Owls’ latest single ‘Better Off Deaf’, is anything to go by, then their second EP ‘Swamp Love’, due out November 9, is going to be a doozy. ‘Better Off Deaf’ is an effortlessly cool stoner rock number that lurches, thanks to a thumping rhythm track, powerfully from the swamp from whence it came. Once again the EP showcases The

TINKLER TWINS

Owls’ wide variety of influences and ability to meld them into a genre all their own. The title track, ‘Swamp Love’, rocks with a reserved swagger while the closer ‘Comprende’ is a country-tinged acoustic number, featuring a southernstyled percussive background and airy three-part harmonies. When it came time to record ‘Swamp Love’, the band didn’t want to get too ahead of their burgeoning fame. After enlisting a big-name producer and laying down their next EP, The Owls realised this wasn’t their sound. So, they scrapped it and went back to basics. Adopting a nothing-to-lose approach, the band built their own studio from a modest tin shed, and mixed the EP in a humble bedroom. Encapsulating a gritty, dark and modestly sexy sound, ‘Swamp Love’ continues to carve The Owls into a genre unto itself. The boys are about to head out on an East Coast tour in support of the EP that will kick off at the Great Northern Hotel on Friday, November 9.

f you’re a fan of the Hammond organ (and let’s face it, who isn’t?) then Adelaide-born Lachy Doley’s debut solo long player, ‘Typically Individual Conforming Anti-Social’, is going to blow the doors off anything you’ve heard in quite some time. It is a ferocious and formidable mix of rock, soul, pop, blues, surf and one

undeniable lyrical and musical talent. While the album may be Doley’s first solo outing, that’s not to say he doesn’t bring quite a musical pedigree to the table. Doley’s musical career began, after being inspired by the likes of Otis Spann and Jerry Lee Lewis, along with his brother Clayton, playing lunchtime

pub gigs at age thirteen. Fast forward a few years, Doley followed older brother Clayton to Sydney where he snared a gig with blues veterans, The Mighty Reapers, that, in turn, landed him a spot tickling the ivories for indie band Karma County on a world tour. Word of Doley’s prodigious talent soon spread and Jimmy Barnes snapped up the 20-year-old for his band before Doley hooked up with his brother, once again, to form the critically acclaimed outfit, The Hands. Since then, Doley added a few more notable names to his resume including the late, great Billy Thorpe. “He had become a real important part of my life along with his best mate Norman Sweeney. Billy really believed

in me and appreciated what I did. He would often say, ‘If only you were around in the 60s and 70s mate,’” he said. In 2007, Doley got a call from Bernard Fanning asking if he wanted to come play with Powderfinger. After working on Powderfinger’s swansong ‘Golden Rule’ and surviving the hectic Sunsets tour, Lachy hit the ground running - heading into the studio with some of Australia’s finest musos to create ‘Typically Individual Conforming Anti-Social’ - the album with the contradictory title that heralds the launch of the next phase of an already incredible career for Lachy Doley. Catch Lachy Doley when he plays at the Wickham Park Hotel on Sunday, November 4.

nlike most musicians, who proclaim their latest album to be “the best thing they’ve ever done”, Kelly Joe Phelps sees his latest and ninth long player ‘Brother Sinner and the Whale’ as part of a much bigger picture. “I was talking to someone about the process of record making a few weeks ago and I came to the conclusion that none of my records ever felt like they were the ultimate expression of who I am as a person,” Phelps told TE down the line from his home in Portland, Oregon. “For me, it’s more about establishing a catalogue that, in the end, I hope would define me. It’s kind of a journalistic thing.” Anyone that has heard Kelly Joe Phelps knows that he’s responsible for some of the most evocative lap slide playing ever committed to tape - on both his own work and the likes of Townes Van Zandt and Son Volt’s Jay Farrar. On his latest set, however, Phelps decided to ditch the lap slide in favour of the bottleneck slide on what he said was a starkly different record to his previous outing - the entirely instrumental ‘Western Bell’. He took his 12 tracks of

redemptive gospel to veteran Canadian producer Steve Dawson who belted out the set in an impressive three days. “‘Brother Sinner’ is a really focused record,” he said. “It’s also a very thematic album in that it’s all gospel-based, which is kind of a reflection of what’s been going on outside in my personal life. “In terms of the playing, essentially it was about the different sounds you can get out of the bottleneck and the way it allows you to use your hands differently and I think the bottleneck fits the tone of the songs a lot more.” After is impending Newcastle visit, Phelps said he aims to continue his seemingly never-ending road trip (he’s booked more than 200 shows to promote ‘Brother Sinner’) and while his time on the road informs his writing, he does need to take time out to make sense of it all. “When you’re touring you lead this really fragmented life and the relationships you establish are really intense in that they can only last for short periods at a time,” he said. “Those experiences definitely inform the creativity, but it only comes out on paper when I’m at home. I need time to process everything.” Kelly Joe Phelps plays at Lizotte’s Lambton on Friday, November 2.
