Noel Fielding, Athenaeum Theatre, Melbourne, October 24, 2012 – review by Marjorie Cardwell

Bryan Ferry at Noel Fielding show, Athenaeum Theatre, Melbourne 24-Oct-2012

Noel Fielding is a charming, ageless, delightful, clever, generous, inspired and inherently hilarious creature with the strength and stamina of an ox.

More from The Band

Treated myself to the Last Waltz Box Set today. (20% off all CDs in JB until Sunday!) Enjoyed disc 1 so far – really nice stuff that’s not on the original album or in the film.  I downloaded it years ago from N#$^%er or some such place, but it sounded really weedy and disappointing, but […]

The Last Waltz

Samuel & I spent a pleasant evening changing guitar strings, eating the last of the Christmas cake and listening to the second commentary on The Band’s “The Last Waltz” DVD. Levon Helm & Garth Hudson are good value as always. Greil Marcus is so bursting with insight he’s slightly dangerous to himself and others. And the […]

Review of Neil Young at the Sidney Myer Music Bowl, Melbourne, Australia, 28 Jan 2009

The Sidney Myer Music Bowl is a rather wonderful outdoor venue in the heart of Melbourne’s King’s Domain. A natural amphitheatre with a large stage and a covered area for those who can afford the expensive seats! For once, I paid the extra to get up close to one of my major musical heroes. I […]

Crowded House at the Forum, Melbourne, 2nd Dec 2008

The band came onstage with the house and stage lights down, wearing those miner-style camping lamps that you put on your head.

The Buzzcocks at the Ulster Hall, Belfast, 1978

One of our tickets from the Buzzcocks concert, 1978

Marjorie and I saw The Buzzcocks at the Ulster Hall in Belfast in 1978, after Love Bites. It was just about our first date, in fact it wasn’t even really a date. We were very young. Marjorie had recommended them to me and I had taped the whole of Love Bites from The John Peel […]

Some less well-known MySpace artists that I like (by DC)

[imported from Myspace - note that some of these links may well be dead by now] Again, this list could be a mile long. I’ve been really enthralled by a lot of beautiful music on Myspace over the last year or so. I’ll try to keep adding to (or amending) this list, but it’s like […]

He was absolutely magnificent, and stayed on this form for most of the rest of the show!

It was always going to be a huge thrill seeing them back together again, and even more so because of the intimate setting, and they didn’t disappoint!

One of my favourite books is now online!

Stranger Than Fiction by Mike Chunn

I hate the term “must read” but it truly is a must read for devotees of the Enz…

Review of Split Enz at Rod Laver Arena, Melbourne, Australia, 5 June 2006 (by DC Cardwell)

Split Enz-7

We went to see Split Enz in Melbourne last night at the Rod Laver Arena…
