Angus’s Beef Travellers beware! As I write this I am beaming from ear to ear, I have knocked off air for the week and will be flying to Bali tomorrow with 4 of my best friends! If you’re reading this do not fret chances are I’m back on Oz soil though if you’re flying anytime in April to Kuta Beach…brace yourself! Do I travel light when heading out of this beautiful country? No. I still stupidly pack way too much clothing. I also work out nonstop, smash the sauna and refrain from eating anything in an effort to drop the kilos because I know what awaits me when the 747’s door opens on the other side of a 9 hour journey. Bintang offers cheap food and a lack of motivation to do any exercise that involves more than lifting a bottle to my lips. Last year I spent 5 weeks in Europe and somehow (I blame black magic) managed to put on 8 kilos! 8 KILOS!!! Sure I ate the pastries in Paris, drank many Belgium beers and sampled the delicious brownies in Amsterdam, but who wouldn’t?! The other thing I dislike about overseas trips is the amount of times you have to get your passport out! When you check in, security, border security, immigration, then just as you think you’re home and hosed the FLIGHT ATTENDANT REQUIRES IT BEFORE BOARDING! Come on! Now don’t get me wrong airport security and safety is my greatest concern, I wanna make it to the other side safe and sound. But if a person has made it past the woman who could bench-press a Suzuki Liana then surely the sweet 20 something year old stewardess isn’t about to foil the next 9/11 attack. When travelling overseas to a new country, with new cultures and another language I also am inspired to learn another language. Why? Because I want to break down the barriers created by a lack of communication? No. Because the language was intriguing and beautiful and I wanted to be apart of an ancient scripture enriched in history? No. It’s because I wanna know what the bloke was saying to me as I haggled another 20 cents off that singlet, and if he is cursing me under his breath I wanna have a right to blast him right back in his own language! So why do I travel so much when I hate the process of travelling? After travelling to over 15 countries in the past 23 years some twice, there’s nothing like sitting on a beach with a beer in hand, on a hot sunny day, surrounded by your mates and a camera to prove you did it. It makes everything worthwhile and they are, the times of your life. Lihat nanti x

DEAD LETTER CIRCUS

J

oining the ranks of Karnivool, Cog and Porcupine tree, Brisbane based outfit Dead Letter Circus have established themselves as one of the premier intelligent, technical and intense bands in the country. With a reputation for high levels of musicianship coupled with powerful modern rock tones, Dead Letter Circus are turning heads wherever they go. Playing no small role in the group’s universal appeal is Kim Benzie’s powerhouse tenor that drives the group’s music through numerous emotional twists and turns Moments before Dead Letter Circus go on stage In the United States we managed to pull Kim their lead singer aside for a quick chat. Kim’s voice is filled with excitement and anticipation as he explains how the band has just finished their fourth tour of the states and that each time they go back the fan base keeps growing and growing.

“Dallas was one of the best shows we’ve done so far; it was a big theatre and had an awesome mosh-pit. It was awesome to see how many people who knew who we were. Everyone knows us back in Australia; it is amazing to see such a following in a different country. This is the start of a career in America for us.” Kim

Reflecting on the past and in particular the creation of the ‘This is the warning’ album Kim explained to me “It was a lot of pain sweat and tears. Every song is a personal tale about our lives and about us stepping outside of our comfort zone and taking a journey in a new direction. We saw a gap in the music industry and we wanted to fit into it. We wanted to do something different in a very stagnant rock world.” Moving forward, whilst the band has been on tour they have been putting a lot of hard work into writing songs for their next album. I asked Kim in what direction they are taking the new album “We really want to send a message with our next album; we want it to be meaningful and to make a difference. There may be some pretty heavy and dark moments in there for the fans.” he enthusiastically replied. The new album for Dead Letter Circus currently has no title; Kim said that they have written about 11 songs so far “At night after we play

I’ll find a nook and cranny to hide out in and get the songs finished and approved so when we finish our tour we can go straight into the studio.” With an American Tour under their belt and a new album release scheduled for later this year it seems 2012 may again be a ground breaking year for Dead Letter Circus. You can catch Dead Letter Circus when they wrap up their current tour back here on Australian soil at the Kings Beach Tavern on the 10th of June. This event will be simply epic so make sure you get your tickets as soon as you can. Even though the boys have had a killer time overseas and have been able to establish a massive fan base in the states they always look forward to playing back here in Australia. Kim explained to me “You just can’t beat that feeling that once you get to a home stage those first few sing-a-longs you do is simply an amazing feeling. Then you know your truly home.”

stated When I asked Kim what town he was currently in it was obvious that they have been touring hard as after a long pause he said laughingly “You know I can’t tell you, we have been to so many recently. I can tell you we will be in New York tomorrow.” Dead Letter Circus burst onto the scene in 2007, their masterful album ‘This is the warning’ marked them as a band that would dominate the Australian music scene for many years to come. Since then, Dead Letter Circus has continually won favour in progressive circles by delivering a lively dose of surround-sound ambience and percussive programming into their quality brand of Aussie alternative.

Noonan in 2003. “Now I’m a parent I can appreciate it more and how she must have felt. For her it must have been a spin out, sharing a stage with the child that you made is an amazing experience to have.” Katie explained Katie informed us that Elixir, which incorporates Noonan, her husband Zac Hurren and one of Australia’s finest jazz guitarist’s Stephen Magnusson has always been in the back of her mind, so much so that since 2010 Elixir has been the main focus for Katie.

T

he enigmatic and effervescent Katie Noonan firstly sprung to prominence as a member of the bands Elixir and George. Over the years Katie has travelled many paths, produced seven successful albums, engaged in multiple national tours and has won four ARIA awards. We recently caught up with Katie to find out a few little secrets to share with you. The Elixir trio and George began at the same time for Katie and as Katie explains helped her grow into the artist she is today. “George

was my baby; it changed me from a girl into a woman. It was my main project for 10 years and then it felt like we had come to the end of that path. I found myself writing different music that wasn’t for George and so I began my solo career which led to The Captains.” The Captains was the next step for Katie, this was a chance for Katie to explore different styles and she did so with a great deal of success with her first album ‘Blackbird’ and subsequent album ‘Emperor’s Box’ being showered with critical acclaim. With a career full of highlights it’s a wonder that Katie Noonan can pick a moment or an event that she can call her favourite, but according to Katie she can and this moment only happened eighteen months ago. “October 2011, I played at the Opera House in Sydney and it was a sold out show. It was a snapshot of my career. We played a couple of songs from George and The Captains, also my solo album Skin and some from Elixir. With my husband playing by my side it made it a special night.” Speaking of favourites, Katie mentions that the Woodford Folk Festival holds a special place in her heart and that North Stradbroke Island, where she tends to write a lot of her music, is one of her most favourite places to visit in Australia. We had been speaking about memorable moments in Katie’s Career when a twinkle in her eye began to sparkle as she spoke about 6

Issue 17 | April 2012

becoming a mother herself and a moment in the past when she was able to perform with her own mother. Her album ‘Two of a kind’ was recorded with her mother Maggie

Elixir is a band that is all about portraying a gentle relaxing intimate world in a magically uplifting way. Katie described it as “Your just playing with your friends, for me it is amazing chance to see some wonderful musicians working blissfully together.” Joe’s Waterhole in Eumundi on Saturday May 12th will be Katie’s final appearance for the Elixir tour.

PARACHUTE YOUTH

H

ow do two people meet in life? Is it that mystical force called fate or is it simply the fact that if two people share the same dreams in life sooner or later their paths will eventually cross? This question is far too complex for a mild mannered music journalist to answer but I would like to thank whatever the driving force was behind the meeting of a Matt K Von and Jonny Castro. These two make up the superhot Australian duo Parachute Youth that is turning heads across the globe and bringing a fresh new age sound to the Australian Music Industry. Before Parachute Youth, Jonny was an aspiring DJ and Matt an Avionics Technician in the Air force. Matt’s background working on Jet Fighters was the inspiration behind the name Parachute Youth. Recently we caught up with Matt and I had to find out how the parring of this unlikely duo came about. “We met two years ago at a boring shindig, six or seven guys just bonging around the couch. After thirty minutes we left the less - than party, went home, got arty and made our first track, titled "It Can't get better than this".”

The whirlwind adventure that shortly followed will surely one day become a tale of legends. Only after a few months of meeting the boys left their home towns, left their girlfriends, sold all their worldly possessions and moved to Paris. They teamed up with Ajax from Sweat it Out Records who in turn recruited a completely bowled over Sam La More to help engineer the single “Can’t Get Better Than This”. The track was snapped up by Triple J and the insanely magnificent accompanying film clip shot by French Clip Producer Julien Paolini served up nearly 50,000 views in ten days on Youtube. Beyond the ever growing internet hype the band are receiving, Empire of the Sun, heard the track, loved it and posted it up on their social media! Like surf and sand it seemed the pairing of this duo was simply meant to be. However how does an Avionics Technician become one of the hottest new prospects in the Electronic pop music industry, Matt explained to me “I have always had a passion for music and did the odd DJ gig here and there. Working with the advanced equipment I do in the Air force it has given me a fresh new insight into the synthesis of soundwaves. Our sound is a collaboration, we fall in love with classical style chord progressions and contemporary methods but we embrace these with new age technologies” Parachute Youths approach to creating music is refreshing and will most definitely see them become an iconic part of the Australian music industry for many years to come. “Our goal is to perfect our sound, remember “Can’t Get Better” 8

Issue 17 | April 2012

was first written nearly two years ago. We are always looking at how to add that extra bit to our production quality, we take the time out to understand how we want to present our music live and we still take lessons as we feel it is paramount to understand the rules of music.” Parachute Youth will be performing at Kings Beach Tavern on the 3rd of May. This duo is destined for greatness so catch them whilst you can.

From the foxs mouth

I

n light of recent observations of certain events, I thought I might ask my fellow musicians a few questions… Hands up (I know I can’t see your hands right now, but let’s just imagine that I can) those that play music because you are compelled to? Because you feel music flowing through your arteries, and if you were to stop, it would feel like your whole world would end? Because the rush you get from playing far outweighs any financial gain (however little or large) that you acquire? From the musicians I’ve met from my involvement in the local music industry (I won’t get into numbers, just know that it’s a decent amount of time), and running The Point Sunshine Coast, the majority of you would have your hands raised. Now, hands up those that are playing music, and forming bands because it’s “cool”? Because you want to be a “rock star”

with all the supposed benefits of “groupies” and “s**t loads of money”? Well, you’re doing it wrong. Just an observation, but no band or artist on the Sunshine Coast is actually actively targeting the right demographic to make you a ridiculous amount of cash. If you’ve been paying attention, particularly to the sensationalist media that seems to filter into our lives on a daily basis, you would notice that a certain five-piece boy “band” (why they insist on calling these groups “bands” is beyond me... do they play instruments in “live” performances? No. They’re a f***ing vocal group) has been causing mass hysteria in our Country lately. Now take a look at the type of people screaming this group’s name, holding up laughable signs (which verge on the ridiculous, to the clearly insane), and generally making life unbearable for anyone within a 10km radius due to the ear-piercing screeching. Notice anything?

My fellow musicians ... witness your “cash cow”. The impressionable teenage girl (ageing from 13 to 18), easily manipulated by the media and the internet (like, because everything on the internet is like, totally true), and with the ability to emotionally blackmail their parents into buying anything related to your “music” or “brand” (but let’s be honest here, occasionally the mums are also part of the market). However, there is a catch. For this to work, you’ll need to be a male aged between 17 and 20, slim, easily sculpted hair, vocally capable (particularly with the ooohs, aaahs, and harmonising abilities), have the looks of those models used in pimple-cream ads, and have names like Niall, Liam, Zayn, Louis, and Harry (yes, I know their names... it’s called research, folks). Oh, and one last thing, be willing to understand that your music shelf-life will be very short. So, to all you young lads that are playing metal/ hardcore/indie, but want to make the real money, there’s your option (or become said particular boy group’s song-writers) There’s nothing wrong with selling-out, as long as you’re willing to lose your freedom of artistic expression. Till next time... Rhys. Editor The Point Sunshine Coast

o one really likes to talk about the hard core scene mainly because it’s niche and unique in the sense that the people in it – get it - and no one else seems to. The All Ages hardcore scene is arguably the strongest music scene for youth on the Sunshine Coast.

Finishing up National Youth Week with one hell of a bang, Homegrown saw 800 metal fans descend on Alex Skate Park for 16 bands and 8 hours of rock, punk, hardcore and metal. If you missed it and it’s your scene jump on facebook and check out Take Us To Vegas and We, the Relentless. They absolutely killed it. Incredible musicians who delivered exuberant performances, take the time to have a look. Homegrown happens but once a year, luckily all ages hardcore shows are regular on the Sunshine Coast. There’s a bunch of committed muso’s and music lovers driving these gigs and they predominantly occur in Nambour’s BlackBox, Price St Hall and the QCWA Hall. If you want to chase down a gig for your fix of molten ear lava check out Rikochetz Events, Sunshine Coast Youth Partnership as well as Suckerpunch events that now have Sunny Coast staff setting up local events.

At the Arts End

T

his month we are going to have a look at opportunities to exhibit on the sunny coast and some ways that budding culture makers can break into the professional exhibition circuit without sell their soul. I’m talking about non-traditional art spaces these can be. But is not limited to: cafes, stores, offices and lobbies, hotels, laneways, car park or any space that are not primarily in the business of showing art. Recently there has been a movement of repurposing old buildings to create innovative creative spaces. The Old Ambulance Station in Nambour is one of these spaces. Managed by a not for profit organisation SCAIP Inc., This building houses the Ground Zero Gallery. The space has approximately 90 lineal meters of hanging space and provides a space for emerging artists and creative's to exhibit and showcase their work in a professional environment.

You can email scaip.booking@gmail.com for more info or just drop in after 10am Monday to Saturday to 80 Howard Street Nambour. In the same vain, The5 - 9pm Fridays BOOKINGS 5477 6737 Various Artist, a group of Sunshine Coast creative designers and developers has taken up residence at the old courthouse in Maroochydore. This space is central, and as VA describe it, culturally rich and quirky, where the jail cells out the back and the old courtroom have been transformed into a gallery for the creative community on the Sunshine Coast. You can contact The Various Artist on info@thevariousartists.com.au. One of the tried and true ways for artists to gain exposure has been to display work in cafes, on the coast there are a few culture friendly cafés that actively support artists. The stand out would have to be Café Envy with two locations Mooloolaba and Cotton Tree. Not only are these

It wouldn’t be right to finish off without saying a huge congratulations to Brett and Fraser from Uniting Care Communities and their committed team of young volunteers without whom wicked events like Homegrown would never take place! Screeching. Notice anything?

spaces comfy and welcoming with great food and coffee they actively promote culture to the masses, artists are encouraged to contact the envy crew on info@envy.com.au or check their web site www.envy.com.au.

3/26 Hudspith Ho

So that’s it for this month, we really haven’t event scratched the surface of possibilities for artists, but really, non-traditional art spaces are only limited your imagination and use of location. So till next time, if you have anything you would like me to know about or ideas for features drop me a line at adam@obscene.com.au See you At the arts end.

Young Guns

I

n each upcoming edition of SCOPE Magazine I will introduce to you, the reader, two up and coming local musicians that I have included in SCOPE Magazines “Young Guns” Team for 2012. This team will consist of 12 of the hottest new musicians making waves in our local music industry.

This month I am proud to introduce to you the first members of the team Alys Longmate and Ziggy Alberts. Alys Longmate first started playing music at age 5 and by grade 7 she was already the star of her school stage shows. A girl prodigy, who jumped years at school, was told at age 14 that being a Songwriter was not a real job and with her intelligence she should choose another occupation. Right then Alys became determined to prove that statement wrong. Since then she has won the hearts of her local peers and also won many local awards such as our own SCOPE Magazines readers’ choice award for Best Female Soloist. Alys has also travelled to the states on a song writing trip and has even played at the preGrammys red carpet show in LA. When asked to describe her music in a short sentence that humble, excited and infectious

personality of Alys Longmate came flowing out “I couldn’t possibly say it in one sentence, because I always talk too much & have far too much to say (laughs). My music is brutally honest – personal lyrics, kooky chord progressions & dramatic melodies. It’s cool to think that my songs are like little musical documents of the moments, experiences & stories of my life.” Alys is in the final stages of her debut CD so make sure you keep an eye out for it! Ziggy Alberts is a talented surfer, a great writer and a future star musician. However he is also smart, humble, complex and a deep thinking old soul. Ziggy started his music career when his parents bought him a guitar a month after finishing high school. A naturally gifted musician Ziggy managed to write three songs in the first three months of picking the guitar up, one of which made it to 26th on the Triple J unearthed charts.

“I've never had a singing or guitar lesson: I probably should, but I want to figure it out myself to keep it really raw. I may not be technically sound, but I pour my heart and emotions into my music” Ziggy explained Let us put things into prospective 16 months ago Ziggy didn’t play any musical instrument, now he has come 3rd in the Kings Beach Acoustic sessions, runner up in the SCOPE Magazines best male soloist competition and has supported major touring acts such as Sprung Monkey. Ziggy describes his music as “Completely representative of what goes on in my head, but not what you necessarily would expect from the first time you meet me – the deeper side of my thought”. Ziggy has just released his debut EP ‘Feels Like Home’ so grab a copy whilst you can. Check out the next Alys Longmate or Ziggy Alberts at the Caloundra’s Got Talent Open Mic Nights for 7 to 17 year olds. For more info turn to our SCOPE SCENE page. SCOPE MAGAZINE

blend of beautiful melodies, dance rhythms and sing-along hooks Tin Can Radio has a unique sound with the new album ‘Chase the Sun, Hold the Night.’ Tin Can Radio takes listeners on a journey through dreamy indie-electro into disco-rock, momentous orchestral features and grinding dubstep breakdowns a journey not to be missed.

Is there any special meaning behind the title “Chase the Sun - Hold the Night”? That title was really a summation of Tin Can Radio's 12 months leading up to the last album launch. All the songs on the album revolve in some way around us striving to squeeze as much possible enjoyment out of each moment and attempting to live forever. Carpe Diem. The tour would have been an amazing experience but the first moment that took your breath away must have been amazing. When, where and who was involved? We toured the album nationally through May/June last year. We ended up playing a whole bunch of regional shows including Alice Springs which was great. We were just so blown away by everyone's appreciation and hospitality. Particularly the day after our show, being driven out through the desert and spending the day swimming in an oasis in the middle of nowhere. Good times. You took out the triple j unearthed competition to record a music video with triple J and National Institute of Dramatic Arts (NIDA Sydney). What did you learn from this experience? We recorded the clip over three days at the NIDA studios, over those three days the most important message that I could share with you would be THAT FAKE SNOW GET'S EVERYWHERE. Stay away from it. We are literally still messing up venues nationwide with fake snow from the kick-drum. Check it out the clip if you get the chance. You all like to throw a few pranks around. What has been the best prank played on each other to date? Being the front man, you tend to get a bit more attention, both good and bad. Besides the classic 'non-consensual Facebook updates' on each other’s phones (often proudly announcing a pregnancy or drug-related arrest) You've got the 'move-Tom's-bed-outside-whilehe-sleeps' gag, the 'fill-Tom's-hotel-room-with-tree-branches' joke or the classic 'wake-tom-up-with-the-fire-extinguisher' skit. Your next EP is due to come out later in the year. Is there a lot of excitement in the band to record another album already? This EP feels like an album, because we've written an album's worth of material for it. We will be putting all the songs online in June and letting our audience decide on which of those songs will be released. We wanted to involve the audience in shaping us and shaping this release. We can't wait to see which ones everyone wants us to put out. Who is the biggest party person of the group? I think this award would have to go to Simon 'Redflag' Irving or Rob 'No-fly' Nobilia for nearly getting us kicked off numerous flights and other various partying-related-reasons, none of which I can really speak about. 16

he wait is over, Simple Plan are back with a red hot new album called “Get Your Heart On”, which is, a gloriously fun, boundlessly melodic slice of poppy modern-rock that finds Simple Plan returning to the revved-up energy of their debut albums. Simple Plan really needs no introduction, over the years they have had a string of hit singles and top ten chart busters in almost every continent across the globe, spanning from Mexico, Brazil, Japan, Switzerland, Spain, Australia and France just to name a few. Their debut album “No Pads, No Helmut’s … Just Balls” went double platinum, their 2004 and 2008 albums went platinum and overall Simple Plan have sold nearly 4 million albums in the US and Canada and more than 7.5 Million albums worldwide. Recently SCOPE Magazine caught up with Sebastien Lefebvre (guitar and vocals) of Simple Plan to find out a little bit more about the man behind the music.

What is your worst habit? Well I am a bit of a neat freak, so you could say I may have a splash of OCD in me. What is your favourite pet? I love my current pet it, is a Maincoon Cat called Zia. I also love fish I have had several large aquariums in the past.

"When you’re just starting out it is a very special feeling to have that sort of support in your hometown" Most favourite concert appearance? For me it was the first time we played at the Bell Centre Hockey stadium in our home town to about 14,000 people. When you’re just starting out it is a very special feeling to have that sort of support in your hometown. Being able to perform at such an iconic Canadian venue like the Bell Centre Hockey Stadium for the first time just made the whole event unforgettable. Most awkward moment on tour? Saying the wrong name, once after being on tour for months we forgot what city we were in. We came out on stage and yelled “What’s up Portland!!!” unfortunately we were actually in Seattle. Favourite motto or saying? It’s all good. What do you think you would be doing if you were not a musician? I would be a complete mess that’s what I would be; I don’t know maybe a Ninja. Favourite superhero? Orgasmo – now that’s a way to save the world!!

SCOPE Magazine has 20 DOUBLE PASSES to giveaway to the first twenty people who email (kerry@scopemagazine.com.au) the word “Gibson”. GET THE GRINGO stars Mel Gibson as career criminal, Driver. He’s just made a big haul of millions that should give him a nice summer vacation on easy street, but it’s a good idea that goes south – literally. During a high-speed car chase with the U.S. Border Patrol and with a bleeding body in his back seat, Driver flips his car, smashing through the border wall, tumbling violently, coming to a stop in... Mexico. Apprehended by the Mexican authorities, he is sent to a hard-core prison where he enters the strange and dangerous world of ‘El Pueblito’. Not an easy place for an outsider to survive, unless it’s with the help of someone who knows the ropes – a 10 year old kid. Directed by: Adrian Grunberg Starring: Mel Gibson (Signs, Braveheart, Lethal Weapon) Only at the Movies May 31 www.iconmovies.com.au
