ANGUS’S BEEF

E

ver bought something with the intension of using it every day and then neglecting it to the point where you will probably use the Ab-Coaster under your bed before that purchase? Well I have! It was a spontaneous purchase, one late night, a couple of beers then during an ad break of “Keeping up with the Kardashian’s” I jumped on Ebay and $2000 later I am David Guetta. I recently became the proud owner of a complete set of Pioneer DJ decks/turntables. I bought everything you need to become a rock star in your own bedroom 2 Cd players, mixer, road case, 2 speakers, and all necessary cords; problem is I’ve hardly even turned them on. I visualized myself headlining nightclubs in Ibiza and foam parties in Mykonos before reality struck; there is a heck of a lot of buttons! Now I’m not unfamiliar with buttons, “working” at the radio station I’m the guy who keeps us on air by pushing the appropriate buttons at the appropriate time (nearly all of the time) but this new toy is extremely confusing. There are 6 faders on the mixer, over 50 buttons combined and these nobs that all have a different purpose, I just haven’t figured out what yet. The worst part is when people ask me what I do and I say I’m a radio announcer they already presume that I know how to play, or that I in fact actually mix the music in the mornings like your regular DJ at the wharf. I don’t! I’m in demand as well that’s the worst part, now I have the equipment people expect me to use it AND BE BRILLIANT! I had my first gig for my girlfriends 21st and the stress of having 30 people, an empty dance floor and having to meet the parents for the first time in one night was nearly enough to put me in an early grave. That coupled with drunken people touching the equipment and mixing tracks together better than I can it was a touch embarrassing, thank god for alcohol. If you haven’t seen a DJ set up it aint small, this thing is longer than a Craig Thomson service receipt and weighs more than his conscience. Don’t even get me started on the speakers! They weigh 50 kilos each and are MASSIVE, if you’re reading this and you’re out of a job I need a roadie hit me up on twitter @angus_ol. Never one to shy away from the limelight though, I’m gonna keep doing my garage gigs because I have found a solution to my problem! Just go on the internet, download the latest DJ Havana Brown mix and stand behind the decks with one headphone covering one ear while occasionally turning one or two of the nobs, praying they don’t affect what’s coming through the speakers and hopefully the people will keep on a dancing!


LAKE KAWANA COMMUNITY CENTRE - 9TH JUNE to be successful you have to learn to want to feel nervous, to yearn for it, basically to live for that feeling”

The humble Killian turned out to be a wealth of information and touched on many points that emerging artists should take note of. At last year’s Splendour in the Grass Festival we witnessed a massive marquee along with its surrounding grass lands become jammed pack with thousands of adoring Boy and Bear fans in eager anticipation to see the band take to the stage.

R

olling Stone Magazine definitely got it right back in 2010 when they announced that Boy and Bear was the band to watch in the future. This Triple J unearthed Artist of the year for 2010 recently dominated our ARIA awards. Boy and Bear took home the prestigious ‘Best Group’ trophy and their album ‘Moonfire’ was awarded ‘Best Adult Contemporary Album’, ‘Breakthrough Album’ and also received breakthrough single awards. Instead of taking some time out to bask in their recent success Boy and Bear are back on the road again with their ‘Remembering The Mexican Tour’ Killian Gavin from the band recently chatted with SCOPE Magazine and stated “We wanted to get back on the road as

in reality we are still a new young band and we wanted to reinstate this.” For those that have not heard Boy and Bear play live you are truly missing out on a magical experience. Their live sound is clean, crisp and note perfect. We asked Killian if he could reveal any secrets to how Boy and Bear manage to deliver such amazing live performances time after time. “I think what helps us is that when we write our songs we write them for the stage, not for the radio or for a film clip.”

To wrap up our time spent chatting to Killian we got him to play a game of “Quick Fire 5” 1 What is your most memorable moment? Jamming a Fleetwood Mac cover on stage with Angus and Julia Stone. 2 Favourite Boy and Bear track? Part Time Believer, I just love playing it live. 3 Worst bad habit? Trying to make decisions on tour, you are always to amped up or to low and run down to think straight.

We asked Killian if they still get nervous before hitting the big stages and big events such as Splendour in the Grass. Killian quickly replied “Of course we still get nervous but if you want

When the boys hit the recording studio they do record different versions on tracks but in the end Killian believes “We are five guys with five instruments and that’s what we want to sound like. We minimalize the use of overdubs and backing tracks so that if someone hears a track on our album they can be confident that we can recreate that sound playing live on a stage.” This is a piece of information that all emerging bands and artists should pay great attention to as there has not been a successful artist or band that we have ever interviewed that has not echoed Killians above sentiment. 4

SIMPLE PLAN In the 12 years since their inception Simple Plan has sold over 7.5 million records worldwide, which has included multiplatinum albums and anthemic singles. They have sold-out headline tours all over the globe and in doing so have amassed a legion of dedicated fans. Back in Oz touring their red hot new album ‘Get Your Heart On’ they are once again selling out shows wherever they go. Recently we caught up with the band’s guitarist and singer Sebastien Lefebvre and chatted about their latest epic album, awkward moments on tour and why they just can’t get enough of our Aussie shores. Simple Plans latest offering ‘Get Your Heart On’ is a gloriously fun, boundlessly melodic slice of poppy modern rock. “It is a great deal lighter than our last album, we wanted to just to go back to having fun so it is a throwback to the revved-up energy of our original album” Seb explained.

Simple Plan are a collection of very amazing human beings. They do their best to give back to communities all around the globe as much as they can. This is evident as they have created a program to help kids called the Simple Plan Foundation. Seb explained to me “It's our way to give back and to try to help kids around where we live, and around the world. Over the past 4 years, we've managed to give about $500 000 to different organisations that help kids and we are very happy about that. Check it out at; www.simpleplanfoundation.org”. Simple Plan hits the Caloundra RSL on the 10th of June. As we go to print with this edition we were told that tickets for this event were just about sold out. If you want to catch the Global phenomenon that is Simple Plan make sure you pick up the phone right now and get your tickets whilst you still can.

Noosa’s no. 1

Simple Plan wanted to write a song for their new album to basically pay homage to their fans. The following message was posted on their Twitter feed: “We decided to write a song about you guys … Can you tell me how our music has made you feel through the years?” Simple Plan was hit with a deluge of answers within seconds and based on those Tweets the track “This Song Saved My Life” was compiled and may be the first track in history ever written using only Twitter comments. With a soft compassionate voice Seb stated “Personally the track reflects many of our own emotions, so many fans said the same thing so it goes to show that so many of us go through very similar situations in life.” We sensed a very deep thinking emotionally side to Seb and decided to lighten things up by chatting about some of the awkward moments that he may have experienced on Tour. Sebs next statement literally had us rolling on the floor in laughter “The most awkward moment for me is one I will never forget, we had been on the road touring and one place just blurs into the next. I get up on stage all pumped and yell out what’s up Portland and there was no reaction from the crowd at all. Right then I realised we were actually in Seattle.” The Simple Plan sound obviously resonates with audiences down under with basically all their shows selling out here in Australia. “I feel like Australia is very much like Canada, but with beaches. People are cool and laid back, and like to have a good time.” Seb stated. 6

YOUNG GUNS

W

elcome to the second instalment of our Young Guns segment. This month we chat to the beautiful and amazing Taylor Moss as well as the red hot youth band Soula. Taylor Moss burst on to our local music scene just over 6 months ago. Since then she has secured gigs at a multitude of local venues, won awards and more importantly has won the hearts of every audience she has ever played to. In her own words Taylor believes her sound is “Soulful Country Pop, songs which a wide audience can relate too, with catchy melodies and easy lyrics.” Taylor’s passion for music started at a very early age “I have had musical influences from many family members so you can say I was born, bred and raised into the art of music. I started performing in talent quests at the age of 6.” Since introducing her music to the broader public has been showered with accolades, however one award stands out as being her most memorable “I was awarded 1st place in this year’s Urban Country Music Festival Talent search, In the Junior division. It was so great to win this award as it really confirmed to me that all my hard work is starting to pay off.” Taylor Moss is destined to have her name in lights; she has all the ingredients to be a superstar, that is, talent, looks, passion, drive and an infectious personality.

This month we also caught up with Teila Packman the gorgeous lead singer for the red hot local youth band Soula. In her own words Teila described Soula’s style of music as being “a seamless mix of edgy riffs and melodic funk/rock, bolstered by crisp guitars, catchy beats, soulful vocals and the irreplaceable sounds of the sexy saxophone.” Soula is a five piece outfit that sees Teila out front on lead vocals, Danny Lowrie on Lead Guitar, Lewis Elliott on Bass Guitar, Nathan Campbell on Drums and Kane Filer on Rhythm Guitar as well as the Saxophone. 8

with Danny and Nathan a couple of times and quickly brought them into the mix. Soula went from being non-existent to playing successful gigs in 9 days.”

The step from looking at creating music as a hobby to pursuing music as lifelong career is a life changing moment. Teila explained to us that “During recording a two track demo in the recording studio we had a sudden realisation that with enough grit and determination, we could potentially earn a living off our musical creativity.”

Soula is yet another extremely talented and marketable young band emerging from the Sunshine Coast. We wait in eager anticipation for their first EP release which hopefully will be happening sometime later this year.

Teila Believes the bands biggest achievement was not only just how quickly the band came together but the natural chemistry and synergy between the band members that has existed from the first time they played together. “Kane and Lewis joined forces in Europe, Lewis than recruited myself as I was on vocals for his previous band.

renzal Rhomb are icons of the Australian punk rock industry. The band first formed back in 1992 and since then has reached the dizzy heights of national and international fame. In fact, they have had two albums that have placed in the upper echelon on our own ARIA charts, the first being A Man's Not a Camel in 1999 and more recently Smoko At The Pet Food Factory in 2011. Recently SCOPE Magazine chatted with mainstay Jason Whalley, lead vocals and rhythm guitar for the group. There is a Twelve year difference between the above mentioned albums and we were very curious to know what had changed within the band and their sound during that period of time. “To be honest I think our sound has become

KINGS BEACH TAVERN - 8TH JUNE faster and the production quality of our most recent album is the best ever. I was at least Seventy per cent less drunk during the recording of the most recent album compared to the one back in 1999” Jay cheekily stated. For the avid Triple J listener you may recognise Jay from his time spent on air as part of the program called Jay and the Doctor which later became Drive with the Doctor. “I enjoyed my time on Triple J, I got to chat to a lot of very cool people and learnt a lot about that side of the industry” Jay stated The group have generated controversy for their profanity on cover art, in song titles and lyrics, for their behaviour on-and-off-stage, and for their association with causes such as veganism and radical politics

Their music is truly one of the most unique, new and fresh sounds to have emerged on to the scene in recent years. Sticky Fingers is a slang term used to describe someone that may have a tendency to steal things. This is actually quite an appropriate description for this band as when they hit the stage they will steal the show, and after you have heard them play they will most definitely steal your heart.

Nicky Bomba has jumped on his musical boat again to deliver a party filled island adventure with his new band BUSTAMENTO. A tropical shaking six piece that pays homage to the upbeat rhythms of the Caribbean, covering the Calypso, Mento, Early Reggae and Ska styles. Over the next half an hour Nicky Bomba took SCOPE Magazine on the most amazing magical and historical musical journey as he explained where all the different elements you hear on the new Bustamento album come from. Firstly, we delved into the origins of the Mento group. “Before Ska the Jamaicans had Mento, these grooves influenced the Ska sound. Mento Groups normally have certain core instruments such as a rumba box, bongos, guitars and flutes just to name a few. The easiest way I can describe it is that the 4th beat of every bar is up, dahdah dah-dah dah-dah dah-dee” Nicky beat boxed to me.

N

icky Bomba is one of Australia’s most highly respected musicians. He has built a solid reputation in the music industry via many projects including writing and performing with his band Bomba, conducting the Melbourne Ska Orchestra, playing drums as part of the John Butler Trio and being the Artistic Producer for the Multicultural Arts Victoria ‘Visible’ project. He has a discography of over a dozen albums and has been a composer/performer on many more.

12

Issue 18 | May 2012

Nicky went on to explain “Radio first hit Jamaica in the 1950’s and brought with it the American boogie woogie sounding style of music. The Jamaicans made this sound their own and added a backbeat. This is the essence of Ska music and it kept evolving from this, the first Ska style sound that became commercially popular was ‘My Boy Lollipop’ in the early 1960’s” Nicky explained Nicky pointed out that during this period many American tourists also flooded to Jamaica. Local Jamaican musicians needed to be mobile so they could travel around to different resorts or beaches to play to these tourists. This also influenced the construction of these Mento style groups

and the rawness of their sound. He also mentioned that their lyrics were often made up on the spot to cater for so many different audiences and that is why their lyrics are often cheeky, topical and filled with social comments We now had a far better understanding of all the different elements I heard on Nicky’s new album, however, There was one more ingredient Nicky wanted to bring my attention to “You may have heard a splash of Spanish and Mexican sounds on the album, I am originally from Malta and the Maltese style is similar to Spanish and Mexican styles, it is making light of bad situations, it is an attitude, a reflection of the cheekiness of the culture.” It seemed crazy to us that Nicky managed to merge all these different styles and recorded 23 songs in one weekend for his new album. “Well keep in mind the sound that we are trying to achieve has its roots in Mento groups. We wanted to sound like a group of guys getting together jamming out blissful music. We didn’t want to overwork our sound; you know use too many overlays or spend too much time in postproduction on it. I have worked with all the members of Bustamento for decades now so the chemistry there is simply amazing, everyone’s work ethic is great and we just get together have fun” Forget the worries of the world, escape with Nicky on his Bustamento boat to tropical islands. Let the rawness, the up tempo beat; the positive lyrics and the rhythm of his island music take you away to a good vibe happy place. You can jump on board the MV Bustamento at the Solbar this June; all you need to do is pack your smile and a pair of dancing shoes.

el-lo Sunshine! Oh yes the weather has been brighter this past month which saw the Peregian Originals in fine form and the park packed with many a happy music lover! Around the rest of the coast we are seeing a bunch of owner operator bars and cafes reclaim the hospitality sector by their commitment to live music! Yes that’s

right, you can’t throw a bagel or spill your skinny mocha without hitting a muso at one of these awesome little places. Especially groovy new places to check out include Velo Cafe in Mooloolaba and the latest bar to hit the Esplanade Lot 104. As well as regular buskers adding sweet tunes to some of our most popular streets on the Coast from Bulcock St to Mooloolaba

Esplanade, all the best markets have stages and buskers too! The Nambour Night Markets and the various stages at Eumundi markets are the biggest but the little markets are catching on quick and they are pulling some totally random and (famous) musicians as they pass through town. Please remember though – buskers have got to eat to so throw them your shrapnel and don’t pick out the gold coins!! They’re worth it. Finally for the emerging music lover, make your way to one of the many open mic nights on the Sunny Coast. To uncover some raw talent, look up : Sunshine Coast’s Got Talent at Caloundra Surf Club, Lynchy's Jam night Palmwood Hotel & the Solbar every Wednesday night from 8pm. Soak up the tunes, eat, drink and be merry!

FROM THE FOXS MOUTH

L

ast month’s article (the one on how to ‘successfully’ make money in the music industry today) received amusing feedback, but also was fuel for interesting conversations between musicians. I happened to be a part of such a conversation, however I won’t name who with, the topic moving on to what EXACTLY is the problem with the majority of popular music today? My musician friend went on to explain (paraphrasing a discussion he had with a famous musician mentor) that the problem with today’s popular music is that, to be brutally honest, it is boring. Not bland in a sense, but more so that there is no passion. This is compared to music created in the 60’s

and 70’s where there was something worth writing about other than self esteem issues or partying on a Friday night. There was war; the free-love movement; women’s liberation; racism... there was A LOT going on. Which leads me to the next point - where have our Rockstars gone? All the way up to the end of the 1990’s, Rockstars/Popstars/ HipHop Stars were unreachable. We would pay a decent price to see them at a gig, mouths agape when our favourite artists walked onto stage and f***ing rocked our world. Nowadays, we know when they write a new

song or take a dump thanks to social media and instant interactivity. So, here lies the question... have our musicians become too accessible? Now, before you start thinking, ‘What a hypocrite! This guy relies on Social Media to get the word out’; this is not a complete criticism of Social Media, and Lord knows I actually do enjoy having music so accessible, however, it does need to be asked - have our more famous musicians allowed too much transparency in the name of being ‘modern’ by allowing us too much into their lives? If you want to see where Rhys Fox takes this very hotly debated topic you are going to have to log on to www.scopemagazine.com. au to read the full article.

AT THE ARTS END ANIMATING SPACES

W

elcome back discerning culture lovers, this month we are going to focus on a particularly exciting project that links quite nicely with the subjects of the last few columns. The Animating Spaces initiative. Animating Spaces is a key project of Artslink Queensland, the peak body for regional arts in Queensland. Animating Spaces is a statewide project that aims to revitalise places and spaces through community-led arts activities and events. Earlier this year, Artslink Queensland sought expressions of interest to build partnerships with five regional Queensland communities who would be interested in participating in the Animating Spaces project. Artslink received 41 applications, including seven applications from arts and community

16

Issue 18 | May 2012

groups on the Sunshine Coast, the highest number for any region. The Eudlo Cultural Collective were successful in their application to ‘Animate’ Eudlo which aimed at providing the opportunity to the community to decide on activities and locations they wish to activate. The Collective aim to celebrate, engage and inspire their community, collaborate artistic vision and energy, the renewal and promotion of local artistic talent, the mentoring of emerging artists and musicians, the connection of community and to break down cultural and social barriers through presenting a wide variety of events within Eudlo and it’s community. For more information on Animating Spaces please contact Amy Martin from the Eudlo Cultural Collective by emailing eudlocc@live. com.au or contribute your ideas at; facebook.com/EudloCulturalCollective

Just a quick side note also related to animating community spaces, The Memory Lane Project was conducted by Council in Caloundra on 19 and 20 May 2012. Community members were invited to help install paste up of memories of those special holiday activities, camping, fishing trips, a surfing weekend in Village Laneway off Bulcock St. during a weekend workshop. Participants helped paste-up the contributed mementos and images of Caloundra to form the artwork, led by the consultants “The Projects” and local artists Elksryk and Goda Di. To have a look at the outcomes go to www.theprojects.com.au. Again we come to the end of another column, as always if you have anything to share or ideas for articles email me: adam@obscene.com.au Til next time, see you At the Arts End. Adam Obscene

GODDESS OF SOUND

W

elcome to the first instalment of our Goddess of Sound feature. In this segment we will be profiling the beautiful and talented female musicians that exist within our industry. This segment is about their music, it is about getting to know who they are as people, their struggle, their passion and their journey through the music industry. SCOPE Magazine is very proud to announce that our first Goddesses of Sound are Brooke & Ellie Kelaart from the Gold Coast.

Have you always lived on the Gold Coast? Ellie: “We live on the Gold Coast but are originally from Melbourne. We moved up to the coast about 4 years ago.” How old are you? Brooke: “Just turned 20 in March” When and how did you first discover your musical talent? Ellie: “We have always been into music, from an early age we were in school choirs and school bands. We bought our first set of decks about 2 years ago and a friend of ours taught us the basics then we went on from there.” How long have you been gigging for now? Brooke: “We have been traveling around

Australia and overseas for about a year and a half now.” What notable festivals and/or gigs have you played? Brooke: “We just recently played at a festival in Rockhampton alongside Sneaky Sound System, Vandalism, Ellen Levon and many others. Was so much fun with a great group of people.” Do you have any residencies or upcoming gigs where my readers may be able to listen to you perform?

Proudly Supported By PLATINUM EDGE MODELS Ellie: “We are playing all over Australia in the next few weeks. Brisbane at The Met on the 1st, HQ in Adelaide on the 2nd, Aluhumbra in Melbourne on the 8th, Gilligans in Cairns on the 9th and we drop into Mackay on the 16th.” How would you describe your style of music? Ellie: “We don't leave many genres untouched. Our favourite style to play is the big progressive and electro house tracks.” Most memorable moment in the music industry? Brooke: “Signing our contract with Ministry of Sound at the start of the year. We are so grateful to be part of such a big company and they have done so much for us. Also filming the music video for our first track with Israel Cruz, we had so much fun and it's so exciting to see it playing on TV!” Unfortunately in this world people judge other people on the way they look. People are discriminated against for their weight, how they look and at times their gender. Is it hard at times to get people to respect you as talented and unique musicians rather than just looking at you as beautiful young girls? Brooke: “Yes defiantly! That has been our biggest hurdle so far. In the end we don’t pay too much attention to what others think about us. We work hard and are so passionate about our music, we just love creating music. It is however so frustrating how some people think that just because we are girl’s we can't actually mix. In the end some peoples skewed perception of us just makes us even more determined to prove them wrong.” What are your career goals as a musician? Ellie: “Firstly to produce more of our own music, I think that is a goal of every musician. Another goal of ours is to headline a major festival in Australia and also a major overseas festival.” This is just a sneak preview into the world of Brooke and Ellie Kelaart. If you would like to know more about these intelligent, beautiful and talented musicians you can check their website out at www.thetwins. com.au or stay in touch with them on facebook at: www.facebook.com/thetwinsdj.
