BLOW Thursday, 9.30pm • Go Aside from his turn as unhinged gonzo journalist Hunter S Thompson in Fear and Loathing in Las Vegas, this could very well be the best role in Johnny Depp’s career. This true story follows the life of George Jung (Depp) - a small-time hood who rose through the ranks to become the king of cocaine in America in the hedonistic 1980s.Starting out as a small-time marijuana dealer, Jung became part of the Medellin drug cartel, headed by none other than Pablo Escobar.
KRISTIN HERSH Friday, June 6 Factory Theatre, Marrickville Throwing Muses frontwoman Kristin Hersh is returning to Sydney for the first time in seven years for her intimate Words & Music show featuring her unique stories stories and powerfully emotional songs. After founding the influential art-punk band Throwing Muses, at age 14, Kristin Hersh went on to spend the next 25 years confounding expectations and breaking rules - her own and others. Her solo-mostly-acoustic career spun off in 1994 and has lived in parallel to the Muses. Her first solo release, Hips and Makers was widely acclaimed and since, Hersh has released a steady stream of solid and distinctly individual solo albums. However, her latest work of passion is her beloved band, Throwing Muses’ epic work, Purgatory / Paradise. An entirely listener-funded recording, written and demoed in public and in full conversation with the audience meant to consume it, the project was published as a hardcover art book with a CD mounted inside 60 pages of photos, lyrics and narrative prose.
THE WOLF OF WALL STREET Out Now RATED R
Sure, it is debauched and the majority of its characters devoid of any moral compass, but Martin Scorsese’s biopic of the life of nefarious stockbroker Jordan Belfort, could just be the iconic director’s magnum opus. Based on Belfort’s book of the same name, The Wolf of Wall Street charts Belfort’s rise from a Long Island penny stockbroker to becoming the founder of his own firm, Stratton Oakmont. Along the way, Belfort was involved in a massive securities scam that involved widespread corruption on Wall Street. Leonardo DiCaprio is brilliant as the amoral Belfort but, Jonah Hill threatens to steal the show as Belfort’s partner-in-crime Donnie Azoff.
THE PIXIES INDIE CINDY Out Now While there are flashes of the Pixies of old on their first studio album in 23 years - Indie Cindy never lives up to the skewed indiepop brilliance of albums like Surfa Rosa and Doolittle. While Frank Black is in fine caterwauling form and Joey Santiago is still bringing those slinky, snakey guitar lines, the absence of original bass wielder Kim Deal is noticeably absent. In fact, this kind of sounds like a side project of Frank Black, Joey Santiago and David Lovering, rather than a Pixies record. Their heavier, rockier moments kind of come of sounding like a band trying to do the Pixies, yet it is in the quieter moments such as the standout Greens and Blues where this album truly shines. This is by no stretch of the imagination a bad record, but definitely not the best in the Pixies formidable indie-rock canon.

“It really is the biggest show we’ve done up that way and while I’m not going to go into spec ifics on ho w much a sho w lik e this costs, this is one band tha t definitely don’t do things by halves,” he said. “This will be a full produc tion show and will be absolutely enormous. W e’re all very pleased and v ery e xcited to be able to get this extra show in the H unter, but I guarantee it will be one show only.” Originally slated for March, the band had

barely touched do wn in A ustralia before the the tragic dea th of f rontman Mick Jagger’s girlfriend L’Wren Scott prompted the band to return home. While the M ushroom R ecords founder said he always had faith that rescheduled dates w ere alwa ys on the c ards, the last mon th had been “torturous” for all involved. “I alwa ys had grea t fai th tha t the tour would be rescheduled, but, when y ou’re dealing w ith such tragic c ircumstances, it’s just a matter of patience. “There is definitely a sense of relief , but it really is a kind of ‘ fat lady sin gs’ situation - I don’t really think it will be possible to fully relax un til they walk offstag e in Auckland [the last show of the tour].” Gudinski said that, when the opportunity arose for e xtra da tes in the rescheduled tour, the Hunter Valley was high on the list due largely to the success of tours such as Bruce Springsteen, earlier this year. “Those Hunter Springsteen shows were great - i t’s such a g ood v enue and w ith plenty of room for the Stones to set up their full produc tion,” he said. “When you’re g etting ac ts of the c alibre of the Stones - I mean just look at their catalogue, it’s just hit after hit after hit - it’s only going to open the door for more hug e ac ts to want to come and play in the Hunter.” While the logistic s of brinin g one of the largest bands on the planet are alwa ys going to be mind bogglin g, Gudinski remained philosophical. “It certainly has been a lon g road but, hey, it’s only rock and roll, but I like it.” The Rolling Stones pla y at Hope Estate on Saturday, November 15.

A formidable pair STEPHEN BISSET
eparately, w ith son gs lik e Ginger M an, E very M other’s Son, Reminiscing, Cool Change and Help Is On the Way - Brian Cadd and Glenn Shorrock are icons of the A ustralian music industr y. Together, though, they c reate something truly special. Cadd and Shorrock ( who w ent on to become a global sensa tion as f rontman for the Li ttle Ri ver B and) first started collaborating in 1969 in what was dubbed Australia’s first “ supergroup”, Axiom - best kno wn for such iconic tracks as Arkansas Grass and Little Ray of Sunshine - and i t is a music al f riendship tha t has stood strong ever since - lon ger than a lot of marriages. “We started out in our twenties or thereabouts and we really did evolve together,” Cadd told TE. “We met during a period in both our lives where we were learning about songwriting and performing and when you go through that together, it g ives me a g reat sense of confidence on stage, knowing that the guy next to me is completely on the same page as me.”
Cadd and Shorrock w ill be hi tting the Hunter for a run of dates this week with a sho w, dubbed, The S tory o f Sharky and the Caddman (named after an album featuring reworkings of their respective and collec tive son gbooks, released last y ear) and C add said the Hunter region was alwa ys high on his tour agenda. “Newcastle always provides c rowds

that just love their rock and roll - i t’s a true rock and roll town.” When C add’s outfi t The Groop disbanded in 196 9 he paired up w ith Shorrock (along with Don Mudie (The Groop), Doug Lavery (The Valentines) and Chris Stockley (Cam-Pact) to form Australia’s first super group - Axiom - and while they only released tw o albums and disbanded two years later
- they became an integral part in the story of Australian rock and roll. “Axiom was part of a mo vement tha t started around 1967 or 1968 in A ustralia where there was this grea t e xplosion of creativity,” Cadd explained. “Prior to tha t everything was a kind of a h ybrid of what was coming out of Americ a and En gland and then, all of a sud den Australia began to rock so mightily with the sound of some truly original music and I’m glad that I was able to be a part of that.” Fast for ward a number of y ears and there isn’t too much of the industr y Cadd hasn’t seen. H e has penned son gs for the likes of Joe Cocker, The Pointer Sisters and Bonnie Tyler, lend his soundtrack talen ts to the likes of Morning of the Earth, Alvin Purple and The Heartbreak Kid as well as sitting on the other side of the fence as a label head, but i t is the art of son gwriting that has kept him so passionate. “I never really saw songwriting as a tool to get myself into the hit parade,’ he said. “For me success was always in the song itself and it is writing that first ignited my passion and definitely what still keeps it going.” Catch Brian Cadd and Glenn Shorrock at Nelson Ba y Digg ers on Thursda y, Ma y 8, B elmont 16s on Sa turday, Ma y 10 and Cessnock Leagues Club on Sunday, May 11.

LIGHTS CAMERA ACTION THIS WEEK
From the director of Get Him to the Greek and Forgetting Sarah Marshall, Bad Neighbours is an outrageous comedy starring Seth Rogen (Superbad, Knocked Up), Zac Efron (High School Musical) and Australia’s Rose Byrne (Insidious), about a young couple who are forced to live next to a fraternity house after the birth of their newborn baby.

Chef follows the temperamental Carl Casper (Jon Favreau who also directs), a prestigious name in the world of food who falls from grace and ends up starting his own food truck to recapture his flair and integrity. Casper was once a promising star in the culinary world, whose artistic aptitude has long been restrained by an overbearing restaurant proprietor. With his passion for cooking wilting, Carl’s career takes a turn for the worse, when a prominent food critic Ramsay Michel targets the uninspired Chef .
Belle is inspired by the true story of Dido Elizabeth Belle (Gugu MabathaRaw), the illegitimate mixed race daughter of a Royal Navy Admiral. Raised by her aristocratic great-uncle Lord Mansfield (Tom Wilkinson) and his wife (Emily Watson), Belle’s lineage affords her certain privileges, yet the colour of her skin prevents her from fully participating in the traditions of her social standing. Left to wonder if she will ever find love, Belle falls for an idealistic young vicar’s son bent on change who, with her help, shapes Lord Mansfield’s role as Lord Chief Justice to end slavery in England.
Fading Gigolo [Rated M] Reviewed at Tower Cinemas, Newcastle by Amelia Parrott
After spending a summer in B arcelona, midnight in Paris and falling in love in Rome, Woody Allen is back in his ol d stomping ground of New York City in Fading Gigolo. After sellin g up the family business, c ash- strapped M urray (Allen) goes into “business” with his struggling florist friend, the tall, dark and handsome, Fioravante (John Turturro), “spreading magic” to the women of the Big Apple - at a price, of course. Fading Gigolo sees wri ter, director and leadin g man, Turturro (The Big L ebowski, O Brother, Where Art Tho u?) explore the ins and outs of rela tionships through some g enuinely well- crafted and unique characters. Liev S chreiber ( The But ler, C SI: Cr ime Sce ne In vestigation) is hilarious and heartwarming as jealous J ewish cop, Dovi, French model/singer/actress, V anessa Paradis is perfec tly c ast as the fragile griev ing w idow, Avigal, and W oody Allen as M urray is, well, Woody Allen - as awkward as ever.

If y ou enjo y saccharine- sw eet girly bondin g, ev ery rom- com cliché in the book and films so an ti-feminist that you leave the cinema resigned to a life of ma tching your apron to the whi tegoods, then this drivel is for you.

W ith s ***- eating grins on their faces they succeed, of course, because, you know, OMG girl power!

Kate Upton runs do wn the beach in a bikini ( which must be wh y she was cast because she can’t act), this line - “So, you really like this guy, huh?”, women getting drunk and doing each other’s hair, resulting in a film tha t Wayans brothers would look at and go, “Dude, we can’t lampoon that because you’ve already done it yourself.”

LAUREN ARMS MEREWETHER SURFHOUSE FRIDAY, MAY 9
A call to arms Lauren Arms and is a quirky, passionate young soloist, who’s unique habit of mashing songs together brings something a little different to the live entertainment scene. Hailing from Newcastle and having played music her whole life, beginning with piano and ukulele funnily enough, Arms has started to seriously pursue her love for music and performance full time. Her eclectic songbook, that includes the likes of Macklemore, The Temper Trap, Jack Johnson, Beyonce, Vance Joy, MGMT, Gnarles Barkley, The Lumineers, Daft Punk, Nelly and Kanye West and Nicky Minaj, should be enough to keep even the most hard to please music fancier happy. This is one artist who can adapt to any sonic situation.

The PHFAT of the land
PHFAT SMALL BALLROOM WEDNESDAY, MAY 14
hile South Africa might not be the first coun try tha t comes to mind when discussing hiphop, that is set to chance when one of the country’s most successful independen t hip- hop outfi ts, PHF AT, hi t New castle next week. With sev eral y ears of successful touring, three independen t releases Dinosaur B lood, Y ou A re Going T o Die and Happiness Machines, and more than 300 shows performed in S outh Africa to date - PHFAT’s history reads as a v eritable climbin g of the lad der of the S outh African Music scene. In the tw o years that PHFAT has been a full time rap ac t they ha ve pla yed a t just about ev ery established alterna tive music festival in the country. While this is impressi ve on paper , PHFAT’s proudest asset is their abili ty
to consistently sell out clubs around the country w ith only their name on the flier. The release of their la test sin gle en titled Lights O ut occ urred li ve on J ohannesburg radio sta tion 5f m durin g peek hour on their F resh Drive program - the most popular sho w on S outh Af rica’s most popular radio station. Multiple play listings on radio sta tions countrywide follo wed. The sin gle ev en managed to bea t out elec tronic music giant Skrillex for “H ottest New Track of the week” on 5fm’s #NewFavourite slot. Their ability to consistently output new and original music combined w ith their seemingly unendin g supply of ener gy and immac ulate professional decor um indicates that PHFAT has no intention of slowing down. This one is going to be PHFAT.

f y ou’re lookin g for a restauran t that c an feed the whole tribe in a f lash, Outback J acks just migh t be y our family ’s new fa vourite. Tucked a way in the Stockland shopping centre a t Glendale, w ith ample parking on i ts doorstep, Outback J acks is a family- friendly steakhouse w ith Aussie flare and bloody good steak! To kick off the nigh t w e or dered up some garlic prawns and calamari from the outback- inspired menu, bec ause w e all know we Aussies love our seafood. Meaty and tender, the prawns were smothered in a rich, buttery garlic sauce and served on a bed of rice in their own ceramic mini camp oven! Even the bush pepper c alamari had an outback tw ist - sliced and scored to look lik e li ttle c roc tails and moreish to boot. We hadn’t even finished our entrées before out mains arri ved on the table that’s another g ood thin g about OBJ s, the service is lightning fast. On extremely positive recommendation I tried the pork ribs. Slo w cook ed in sticky J ack Daniels whiskey glaze and smok ey sauce these babies w ere fallin g- off- the- bone tender . As one w ould expect, the OBJ menu has more steak than y ou c an pok e a stick at - porterhouse, both an gus and wag yu, prime rib on the bone, three varieties of grainfed rump, t-bone, eye filet, whatever your poison, chances are they ’ve got it on the menu. After much considera tion, my dining partner opted for the angus porterhouse, medium rare w ith mushroom sauce. It was cooked to perfection. Simple as tha t. And wha t bet ter side dish for a steak than its traditional Aussie barbeque playmate - salad and slaw. As good as the food was, I have to say the standout offering of our nigh t at Outback

Hotel on S eptember 19 , 1979 – the nigh t of the infamous Star Hotel riot, one of the biggest in Australian history. “Yeah the Star H otel sho w brough t us a fair amoun t of notoriety and w e w ere actually signed to Alberts on the stren gth of it,” Tinson explained. The band ’s rela tionship w ith the label yielded a self- ti tled album w ith the singles Baby’s Had a Taste/Waiting for You and The Star and t he Slaughter/End of the Road. Both singles made the loc al top ten while the album hit number one. Since c alling it a da y, all members ha ve remained ac tive in the music scene (Tinson and S creen ha ve been seen in Swanee line-ups as well as The Tex Pistols while De Jong and Porteus have played in such acts as The H eartfelt Rodneys, Cool Factor, Djan go W rango, and The Smarts ) however Tinson said tha t the time ma y well and truly be right for more Heroes. “After the show, we are planning to work on a new album, so we’ll just see how it all goes.” TE is gi ving y ou the chance to win a double pass to see the show.

ven if y ou only displa yed a passin g fancy for the fec und New castle music scene in the la te 1970s and early 80s there’s a pretty solid chance tha t you would be familiar with The Heroes. Formed f rom the ashes of glam- rock outfit Rabbi t in 197 7, and fea turing the talents of Mark Tinson on gui tar, Phil Screen on drums, Jim Porteus on bass and Pete D e J ong on gui tar and v ocals, The Heroes became one of the most formidable live acts on the Newcastle scene. They were also one of the first Newcastle acts to make an impression further afield, signing to the iconic S ydney label Albert P roductions. Now, some 32 y ears after they brok e up, The H eroes are hi tting the stag e once again for a show at Wests Cardiff. Dubbed The Heroes and Legends, the show will also feature fellow Novocastrian “legends” Dai Pritchard (Rose Tattoo) and Grant Walmsley (Screaming Jets). “It’s g oing to be a lot of fun, ” gui tarist Mark Tinson told TE. “We’re really enjo ying pla ying tog ether now and the sho w w ill also be a grea t chance to g et tog ether w ith some ol d friends.” Already one of the top a ttractions in the Newcastle scene, The H eroes stock rose considerably after they pla yed at the Star

n c ase y ou c an’t wai t for S ydney punk rock ers, The Har d Ons’ 30th birthda y bash a t the Small B allroom, Blackie and Ray - frontman and bass player from the seminal outfit - will be brin ging their equally high- octane side projec t, Nunchukka Superfly to the Hamilton Station hotel next week. With inf luences as broad as dub , e xperimental, noise, metal, psych, punk and jaz z, these guys offer up one eclec tic music al gumbo and if, you’ve seen them in ac tion, you’ll know that they are one of the loudest bands you’re likely to hear. As music scribe Murray Engleheart said - “Nunchukka Superfly is from the sort of sonic place The Stooges were heading towards on the Funhouse album before bathroom floors and clinical psych assessments got in the way.” With a fanbase tha t includes the lik es of J ello Biaf ra, Mik e Patton, the M elvins and H elmet, this is defini tely a band not to be trifled with.

Santana Magic, featuring the guitar talents of John Ryll (pictured) is arguably the best Santana tribute act on the circuit. Having p layed per formed w ith a slew of bands, up and down the East C oast f or t he p ast 28 y ears, Ryll’s influences come from the likes of Gary Moore, Jimi Hendrix, Jeff Healey, and Ian Moss of Cold Chisel. But it’s his first love, Carlos Santana, that drives John’s passion to play like his mentor, making h im one of t he few who c an t ruly do ju stice to t he musical br illiance t hat i s S antana. Santana Magic offer up a high-energy two- set s how t hat i ncorporates t he best of Santana’s massive songbook. The boys will be in town this week for two shows and, as a special treat for Newcastle pu nters, t hey w ill b e bringing acclaimed bassman H arry Brus along for the ride.

ou migh t think tha t four y ears is a rela tively lon g time betw een drinks when i t comes to albums, but don’t go thinking that Muswellbrook’s The Dennis Boys Band. While their debut lon g pla yer No Stor y To T ell was released in 2010 , the bo ys have been working on its follow-up, basically ev er since. No w the f ruits of those labours, Up All Night, is set to be launched at the L ass this w eekend and bass pla yer Erle D ennis tol d TE tha t the e xcitement was palpable. “Yeah i t’s defini tely v ery e xciting to be finally releasing the album,” he said. “After we finished recor ding No Story to Tell, w e pret ty much w ent straigh t back into the studio [Sydney’s Glebe Studios]
to work on this current batch of songs and we’ve basically been tink ering away on i t ever since.” While the Dennis Boys’ raison d’etre has always been coun try ( but tempered w ith a ref reshingly modern edg e dev oid of the trappings of U S FM coun try rock and helped along by guitarist Lyle Dennis’ face melting f retwork), this time around, the band have delved into much deeper sonic territory, w ith ev en more f lourishes of punk, reggae and rock and roll. “Lyle and I produced the album and, this time around, bec ause we were more used to w orking in a studio , I’ d sa y w e were much more e xperimental, lookin g at differen t sounds and arran gements which have made for a much fuller album, I think,” he said. With the album done and dusted, Dennis said the plan was to tak e the show on the road once the LP had been ser viced to radio, but for now they will continue doing
what they do best - w owing New castle audiences w ith their amorphous thumping country sound. “At the L ass sho w, w e’ll be pla ying the album in i ts en tirety, which is a bi t of a challenge in i tself, and w e’ll ha ve a few guests there on the nigh t who whelped
