A key example was that after agreeing to return from the 2009-10 summer break to call a winnable double-dissolution after the rejection of his emissions trading scheme, Rudd returned but did nothing.

They squibbed a solemn and serious responsibility. As Cassidy puts it, they did not try and try again to directly talk about the foundering nature of Rudd’s government, request changes, insist on action, put ultimatums. Instead, they came in the night a few months later to depose him and forever after had to wear the public condemnation that came with it. Gillard owns this legacy, too. Rudd may have to wear the same condemnation for his long-term destablising actions. And his critics may again call him dysfunctional and erratic, a bully and even a psychopath.

It’s not a new fire levy, it’s a fairer fire levy. On 1 July 2013, as recommended by the Victorian Bushfires Royal Commission, the Victorian Government is replacing the old fire services levy with a fairer system. Rather than being added to insurance premiums, the levy will now be collected with council rates. This means all property owners contribute a fair share to the Country Fire Authority or the Metropolitan Fire Brigade. The levy is a fixed charge of $100 for residential properties and $200 for non-residential properties, plus a variable charge based on the property’s capital improved value. All funds will go towards supporting Victoria’s fire services.
GST and stamp duty charged on the old levy have been removed and, for the first time, eligible pensioners and veterans will receive a $50 concession. These reforms will save households and business around $100 million a year. F•S•A/DPC0018

MAKING A RACKETTE
She’s got style, she’s got soul and she’s got a “bangin’ rack”. JANE ROCCA meets the inimitable Clairy Browne
t’s the fringe that gets you; that 1940s victory roll curled like a cannoli pastry on the album’s cover art. Then there’s her theatrical verve and big voice, primed on a vintage backbeat and cued to a 1960s Detroit soundtrack. Clairy Browne – the front woman of the Melbourne soul- and jazz-inspired nine-piece collective, Clairy Browne & The Bangin’ Rackettes – seems like she belongs to another time. Browne is adored for her honey-coated grunt that flirts with ’60s doo-wop as much as it shuffles to a restless garage rock drone. But it was her cleavage that caught the attention of a Sydney shop owner in 2009 and inspired the name of her band. “Yes it’s a true story,” says Browne, 32. “The lady in the shop told me I had a ‘bangin’ rack’. I kept reminding my partner at the time what she said [laughs]. I got plenty of giggles out of it until it made sense to call the girls in the band just that. They all have an awesome rack by the way.” Born in bayside Melbourne, Browne grew up in Elwood with her parents, Lynn and Benny – South African immigrants who had arrived in Australia with two young sons in the late ’70s. Browne also has a younger sister, Natalie [an original Rackette for two years] and says they were raised on a steady diet of old R&B, country and pop music. She recalls being four years old in the bath with her sister teaching her how to sing like Whitney Houston. Her musical inspiration comes from her father, who had his own band in South Africa, influenced by the
a, C a M il l
r a M il l e lo r e t t
likes of the Beatles, Crosby Stills & Nash and the Velvet Underground. Mum didn’t sing, but she did smash the odd plate or two in the background of some family recordings for added colour. Where most families with four young children might be pulling out their hair trying to to get them tucked into bed at reasonable-o-clock, Browne says it wasn’t unusual for her parents to keep them up late. “Music has been around me as long as I can remember,” she says. “Dad would have us singing around the kitchen table. It wasn’t uncommon for us to be sitting around at 4am and singing – all happy to be doing it.” As a teenager, Browne started buying records long before she owned a turntable, intrigued by their covers and yearning to connect to stories from the past. “The common thread for me with music is that it had to have a heart connection,” says Browne. “The songs have to tell a story. It had to have that common factor of hope, triumph and pain. Those songs got me every time, and by the time I did get a turntable I was hooked.” She’d while away the hours listening to sad songs by Karen Carpenter and Etta James, and cruising the outer suburbs by train without her parents’ knowledge, to find record shops that held the key to more sad storytelling. Clairy Browne & The Bangin’ Rackettes emerged

four years ago, making their debut at a Melbourne dancehall event called Sweet Jelly Roll, where vintage movies screened and bands grooved to the beat of another time. According to Browne, there was no plan beyond a few shows. “We didn’t come together with any intention other than starting out for fun,” says Browne. “We made a record without any idea of where it would end up. We’re just a bunch of people who would party together, play records, have jazz parties and drink all night. There was this excitement for old R&B and soul music, and re-imagining it with a rock’n’roll edge and here we are.” In May they released their first album Baby Caught the Bus, an impressive debut that introduces listeners to their sassy sound. They’ve also toured the US twice and, last year supported the Cat Empire on a European tour. Browne’s childhood dreams of bringing back a vintage era for modern ears suddenly became a promising money spinner for this ambitious collective. She says she’s inspired by strong divas such as Tina Turner, Esther Phillips and Etta James, for their raw and unapologetic attitude. Drawing elements from vintage movie stills and the fashions of 1940s, 1950s and 1960s, and adding her own modern tweaks and a dose of feminist vision, she has materialised as the quintessential front woman that modern music needs. Before her music career took off, Browne dabbled in journalism, studied creative arts at the VCA and enrolled in gender studies. “I am an avid feminist,” she says. “I have always been interested in minorities that are subjected to discrimination. I am a battle-ist for the underdog, the friends I have are also part of that world. You can see that in my music, I’m fighting for a lot of causes. In the case of the album, it’s about losing love or gaining it, first dates, retribution and revenge, sexual desire and things that relate to human relationships.” The Bangin’ Rackettes consists of Jules Pascoe (bass), Darcy McNulty (baritone sax), Gabriel Strangio (piano) Ruby Jones, Camilla and Loretta Miller (vocals), Peter Bee (guitar) and Ricky Martyn (drums). They work an intricate tapestry of talent that feeds off each other, creating harmonies, covers and lots of old school R&B tunes. “The girls are like sisters to me,” says Browne of the Rackettes. “The way we work together is sisterly. We even run Rackette-ercise classes and are known to do some Cher aerobics.” This girl power spirit is captured in songs such as Love Letter, which fuses primal instinct with ’60s girl vocal harmonies, and in the album’s title track, Baby Caught the Bus, which brings back girl-gang surfer memories – it’s Gidget meets Wipeout. The group is visual, sentimental and always immaculately dressed. But let it be known it was an Emilio Pucci 1960s original bathing suit that stopped Browne in her tracks while in Palm Springs, California this year. “Vintage clothing is amazing in the States,” she says, beaming as she relives her retail high. “You forget you shouldn’t be spending when you go travelling trying to make a living. I just had to have the bathing suit. Now it’s mine.” \ email@example.com » clairybrowne.com

your 40s might be where you start knowing what’s going to happen
(istockphoto \ hemera \ thinkstock)
was recently reminded that, in my final weeks of uni, I was asked to write an essay on where I thought I would be in five years time. I can’t remember what I wrote, but it was probably something ridiculous, such as flying a plane filled with rock stars and deliberately crash-landing the thing in the Bahamas. Whatever it was, it would have involved travel, high fashion and mountains of fun. Because back then, five years was forever. Friends and fortunes were made and lost in a mere week in your 20s, so who could have possibly predicted five years into the future? My main focus was getting through each day with a hangover. If your 20s, like mine, were defined by the idea that anything can happen, and your 30s were all about making things happen, then your 40s might well be where you start actually knowing what’s going to happen and planning for it. I know where I’ll be in five years. It will be here, on the chair where I now sit, most likely. I’m pretty sure that I still won’t be mortgage free, nor will I have lost the five kilos I need to drop, but judging by the current rate of middle-age expansion, it will be 10 kilos by then. I know I’ll be even more of a taxi service than I am now, with one child in high school and another about to start. (I am hoping though, that I won’t need to put tomato sauce on every meal my youngest kid eats by then, and the older one will have ceased drum lessons and will no longer beat up on the kitchen table each
morning in one long irritating drum solo that makes my blood change temperature and the other adult in this house yell, but these are things I cannot predict for sure). I do know I won’t be having crushes on anyone, or hanging in nightclub queues in a short skirt and no tights in the middle of winter. But I will need to be working on a retirement plan and having my blood checked. I also know I’ll have the same hairstyle. I read recently that a survey unearthed the earth-shattering fact that men try five different hairstyles before they settle on a favourite at the age of 32 – and then they keep it for as long as hair remains on their head. The study rings true for me, because I’ve had five hairstyles in my life, all of them predictable enough for their time – an unflattering boy cut in my early teens followed by an unsuccessful ringlet perm, which was then chopped up into a delightful bogan mullet that eventually grew out into the standard ’90s fringe with long hair at the back. Now, it’s all one length and just past the shoulders and I reckon that’s how it will stay. Unless someone comes up with an app that cooks and does the washing, I’m pretty sure those things will still be part of my routine and I really don’t mind that much. Because a friend said the other day that now she’s in her 50s she no longer wants to take on the world, she just wants to survive in it for as long as possible. The whole time I’ve been writing this I’ve been touching wood, because I agree. \ firstname.lastname@example.org We Welcome your feedback @

tagLiateLLe WitH gOat ragu
he last time I went to a Calabrian restaurant the kitchen sent out slow-roasted donkey, which tastes a bit like wild boar but the meat is more funky and pungent and, basically, I think, inedible. Likewise the lamb’s brain (actually an entire sheep’s head with eyeballs, teeth, everything) and the cow’s intestines. It takes a substantial leap of faith to re-enter the murky world of Mafia cuisine, but the lure of Riccardo Momesso’s cooking gets me over the hump. He’s the talented Italian who put Sarti on the map of city must-eats. Now he’s opened Valentino, the new Calabrian sensation in, of all places, Hawksburn. Given the refined tastes of locals, there’s only limited offal on offer here – namely a stew called U Morzeddhu, which I couldn’t bring myself to try because that sheep’s head still haunts me. But there’s plenty else on the menu to reward adventurous diners. The goat, for example, is great – served either as a rustic, rib-sticking braise wallowing in wine-, garlicand oregano-scented juices, the meat so soft it seems to dissolve on the tongue, or as a stewed ragu tossed through hand-cut tagliatelle. (“I thought the rabbit was beautifully cooked,” my friend says. Yes it was, dear, but it was goat.) Then there’s the neonati, “newborn” whitebait so tiny and foetal they don’t even have eyes yet. They’re sort of packed into a shapeless blob that’s stained and spiced with chilli. The flavour is subtly pleasant – not really fishy at all, just generically savoury with an interesting flaky texture and a backhander of chilli. Hot red peppers feature prominently at Valentino, on the menu and in the décor – red, chilli-shaped lightbulbs dangle from the ceiling to remind diners they’re not in northern Italy any more. The staff, several of them imported from the mother country, are mostly charming. When we say we’d like to try a southern wine but don’t know which to pick, a waitress promptly pours three generous tasting glasses so we can assess their relative merits. I’m halfway tipsy before we even order a carafe of the Sicilian grecanico. Each of the dozen reds and whites is available by the glass, carafe or reasonably priced bottle to encourage experimentation. Filtered water is $3 for an unlimited supply of still or sparkling. But back to the food. One taste of the nduja, a spicy spreadable sausage filling of pork and roasted chilli, hints at why this spot has taken off. It’s a small serve for $10 (surely the stuff can’t be that expensive) but it gives plenty of oral bang for the buck. Likewise a simple baccalà (salt cod) ravioli in a Napoli-style sauce of tomatoes and basil, muddled with more neonati (“the leetle baby fish”, as our waiter calls them). The basil is wildly aromatic but the tomatoes
are the heroes. They’re Sicilian pachinos imported by the tin but somehow still glossy and bursting with sunny, sweet, almost briny flavours. After tasting these tomatoes, you’ll be spoilt for any other. Not so Valentino’s pizzas. The one we try arrives cool and quickly turns cold so conditions are not ideal to appreciate its chunks of porky sausage and wilted rape (kale) congealed in mozzarella. It’s tasty enough, just not that enjoyable. Conversely, the suppli (arancini) are enjoyable enough – with their moist, cooked-rice texture and deep-fried crust – but not all that tasty. They’re supposed to be filled with calamari, peas and broad bean tips but there’s scant evidence of any of the above. And while we’re on dud dishes, the barramundi carpaccio with mandarin and pistachio only comes alive when you sluice it with some of the chilli oil supplied on every table. Without it, the fish is insipid. Mains change daily but if it’s on, try the suckling pig

spiked with the Calabrian liqueur Amaro del Capo. The grog gives the succulent meat a caramelised, herbal character. Its richness is nicely offset with fennel but the dish is almost ruined for us by chewy ropes of wild chicory. There’s only one dessert you need bother with. The panna cotta is the colour of green tea with the texture of condensed custard. While it’s meant to be pistachio, the dominant taste is marzipan, which may or may not appeal. Concentrate instead on the two large, coral-shaped branches of caramel-salted popcorn. They’re sensational – each crunchy bite floods the mouth with sugary, slightly salty, toffeeness. The pleasure’s almost enough to kill the memory of that sheep’s head. \ firstname.lastname@example.org tO read MOre reVieWs

KOFLERS It’s great fun to ski right up to the two cafés on the mountain, Koflers and Tirol, and have a pasta or a sandwich and coffee. It was warm so we were able to sit outside on the balcony and enjoy the view. Down in the village, the Hoo Hah Kitchen, within the Kooroora Hotel, serves good home-style dishes, including soups and salads. Wok Worx in the Village Square does noodle boxes and is famous for its homemade dim sims. The Loft at Breathtaker Hotel makes good wood-fired pizzas in relaxed lounge surroundings. It also has a children’s zone, which comes in handy. We had an excellent dinner at Kaptan’s at Hotel Pension Grimus and were lucky enough to be joined at the table by the owner, Hans Grimus, who has lived at Mount Buller for 54 years, so he knows what he’s talking about. \

bright ’n’ beautiful 1a miller Street, brighton, 3186
esigned by well-known architect Henry Netherway, this four-bedroom property takes full advantage of its northerly aspect. Henry has an extremely good reputation for designing stunning houses by the bay; and this is no exception. This family residence took just over 12 months to build and has never been lived in. Offering several living areas, it features the highest quality fixtures and fittings. You’ll want for nothing in this four-storey, beachside residence. In what’s been long touted as one the finest cul-de-sacs at the “Paris end” of the golden mile, the beach is a mere 50 metres down a private path. The residence has a clean, modernist exterior with a secure entry. Numerous decks, balconies and courtyards open up the whole house to a fresh sea breeze. A long CaesarStone bench in the entry hall sets the scene for unrivalled luxury. On the ground level are expansive family and living zones that surround the sleek kitchen with V-Zug appliances. The rear of the house opens to a deck and courtyard, while the front section opens to a deck that seemingly juts out into the pool. Nearby is a guest suite with an
en suite, plus a lift. On the first floor, the large main bedroom suite has built-in wardrobes, a luxurious double en suite with a CaesarStone vanity and a bath. Both the main bedroom and an upstairs living room open to a secluded, timber deck. The main also has built-in wardrobes and is serviced by an en suite that has a double vanity and a bathtub. Two bedrooms also have en suites and built-in wardrobes. A third bedroom could be a study and opens onto an elevated balcony. Downstairs is the basement, which features a multipurpose cinema or gym, storeroom-cum-cellar and multiple car spaces. Take the lift to the rooftop terrace that incorporates stunning sea and city views; it really doesn’t get any better than this. Other features include individual climate control for each room, an alarm system and video intercom entry. The property is minutes from the Bay Street shopping strip, North Brighton station and is close to private schools. \ michelle ostrow zuckerman email@example.com Additional reporting by Bianca Villarosa
briGHton \ 13 baY Street Brighton Beach is metres from this grand, late-Edwardian family house. Built in the 1920s, it has spectacular period features in each room of the original structure. They begin with the ornate formal living area on entry, where the bay window has beautiful stained glass. An avocado-like hue colours the walls, while polished timber floors feature throughout. A grand fireplace provides a focal point. In the formal dining room and informal living area at the back, marble fireplaces steal the show. The main bedroom is opposite, and has a walk-in wardrobe, marble fireplace, en suite with a marble double vanity and a bathtub. A study is next door, with a door to a courtyard. The large and light-filled open-plan meals, kitchen and living area makes up the extended section. A void up to the second-storey allows light to fill the space. This opens up to the landscaped backyard, where a large, blue-tiled pool is sure to keep the family occupied in summer. Upstairs, there is a retreat and four more bedrooms. All have built-in wardrobes and share a bathroom, and one also has a balcony. Meanwhile, a spiral staircase descends into a wine cellar underneath the house. It’s difficult not to be impressed by such a fine example of early architecture in one of Melbourne’s most sought-after suburbs. \ ELIZABETH ANILE

Everybody loves an Edwardian weatherboard, and this could be the perfect opportunity to buy into a great area, with a property that needs just a little bit of TLC. The gorgeous verandah with elaborate trellis and the high ceilings with ornate roses are great period features. The current floor plan has three generous bedrooms, two with built-in wardrobes, off a wide entrance hall. The bathroom, with skylight, has oatmeal-coloured floor tiles and cream walls. The large living room has a gas fire flanked by tall windows, while a spacious kitchen and meals area to the rear has polished floorboards, solid-wood counters and a wood-panelled ceiling creating a farmhouse feel. A big sunroom has laundry facilities. Alternatively, just keep the façade and renovate at will. The 510-square metre block offers plenty of opportunity to extend out into the large backyard, with its additional studio and lock-up shed (STCA). Whatever you decide, the Hampton Street strip is close by, and the bay is just two block away. \ STEPHEN A. RUSSELL
Sitting on a 958-square metre corner block on Hotham Street is this early 20th century house, which is just screaming for a renovator to walk in and give it a fresh coat of paint. The Victorian house is surrounded by gardens and the façade has all the elements needed to bring the house back to its original state, such as a tiled verandah and decorative window bays. Inside there are four massive bedrooms and a study that branches off the central hallway. The lattice work, which borders the window bays, the cornices and the original fireplaces are all in good condition and will make for perfect centrepieces. The lounge and the dining room have their own fireplaces and could easily be joined to make one big open space. Similarly, the kitchen and the bathroom at the back of the house could be updated and connected to the main living area with minimal fuss. Balaclava Road’s famous delicatessens, trams or trains to Chapel Street, the city and St Kilda, schools, cafés and parks are all nearby. \ EDDIE MORTON

Built in the 1950s, this handsome, solid yellow-brick property is on an impressive 745-square metre allotment. There’s plenty of room indoors, too. Its features include high ceilings, cornices, polished floorboards in the living area and an open fireplace in the lounge. A big kitchen fitted with cream cabinetry has heaps of benchtop space and a corner pantry, with a Bosch dishwasher and double Chef oven. There’s a separate laundry and powder room and, in a unique offering, the house also includes an original sauna that has since been converted into storage space. The main bedroom up front also has floorboards and a wall of built-in wardrobes. All three bedrooms share a contemporary bathroom in bright white set against a slate grey, tiled floor. A cracking sunroom with soft, cream carpets to the rear overlooks the big backyard. The spacious garage has a workshop bench and there is also a double carport. \ STEPHEN A. RUSSELL
Set on a corner block, this renovated family residence has three living rooms and three garden spaces. An established front garden leads to the entry. Inside, the formal living room at the front of the house has a wall of built-in shelving. Nearby, a smaller sitting room would make a fantastic home office. Three bedrooms have white walls and blinds, plus taupe carpets and built-in wardrobes. Centrally set, the modern bathroom has a bath, white vanity and white tiles with blue border tiles. The new kitchen has a skylight that illuminates the white cabinetry, while chocolate-coloured tile splashbacks and stainless-steel appliances provide a pleasant contrast. A CaesarStone island bench separates the kitchen from the enormous family room. Here, high-set windows flood the area with light, while stacker sliding-doors reveal the kids’ garden. A deck is partially covered by a shade-sail, while lawn leads to a cubby and sandpit. \ MICHELLE OSTROW ZUKERMAN

Dr. Tony Stubbs Eye Surgeon MB BS BSc(Hons)B Med Sc MS FRANZCO Dr. Tony Stubbs, Eye Surgeon, of The Williamstown Eye Centre says that just about anyone can have their vision restored and be rid of their glasses for almost all the time. And this is without the use of laser surgery. Dr Stubbs, a visiting specialist at the Royal Victorian Eye & Ear Hospital who has worked with the Fred Hollows eye department at the Prince of Wales Hospital in Sydney, says he began his career through the inspiration of his father, Dr Maxwell Stubbs. “My father was a pioneer in cataract implant surgery and I did my training under him. He passed away three years ago but some of his patients still come in for a check-up. Not only is this inspirational, it also demonstrates that good surgery outlasts the surgeon,” Dr Stubbs says. A specialist who helps people who have been advised they are unsuitable for laser surgery, Dr Stubbs is also committed to demonstrating that age, corneal distortion or astigmatism are no barriers to eliminating the need for glasses. “One of my best moments was treating a 12-year-old girl who was struggling at school because of poor vision, even with the use of thick glasses. Now 10 years later, she still has 20/20 vision without glasses. That inspires me. “Seeing my patients’ bright smiles after surgery, as they stop squinting and can read without glasses, is definitely the best part of my job.” No referral is needed and no out-of-pocket expenses are incurred for an assessment to enable all options available to be considered.
Guaranteed quality. Renovations our speciality.
