Five Of The Best

I’ve been asked, for a forthcoming book, to give my thoughts on five great Australian pop/rock stars. So without further ado, here they are: 1 Neil Finn I was so glad to hear Neil could be considered an honorary Australian for the purposes of this poll, as I believe he...

As I’ve been putting in a few grant applications lately, I had to do some searching for reviews etc, and I stumbled across this; an absolute classic!

Everything's okay (I think)!

Everything’s okay (I think)!

Was passed on this interesting info graphic recently. It certainly presents a positive spin on the state of the music industry. I guess the only potential dampener is that the population and record-buying public was much smaller in the 60s (i.e. during the Beatles reign) than now. But it’s certainly food for thought!
What's in a Nickname?

What’s in a Nickname?

According to the “god of all things”, wikipedia (LOL), “A nickname is sometimes considered desirable, symbolising a form of acceptance, but can often be a form of ridicule.” Well I know some of what I’m about to display may fit into the latter category, but regardless I’ve decided to start a list of all the...

Why I love my hood, Astoria

Why I love my hood, Astoria

When I first moved to the US in late 2009 – settling on New York rather than Nashville or LA – I decided, like many other muso (musician)/arty types, to live in Brooklyn. I landed in a place not even a stone’s throw from the entrance to the Bedford and 7th Ave subway stop, right...

The inspiration behind each track from Tyrone Noonan’s debut solo album I Believe. 1. The Right Way As soon as I heard back the recording of the tribal drum intro for this song, I knew it would be the album opener. And I didn’t realise it at the time of writing, but there’s definitely a...
