Snap Scene: Cradle of Filth – 170 Russel, Melbourne. 11th May 2018

May 17, 2018 Mary Boukouvalas

CRADLE OF FILTH are a monstrous tour-de-force of utterly distinctive but reassuringly destructive heavy metal.

Currently enjoying a collective creative renaissance that is driving them to new heights of elegant fury, the band are more potent and devastating than ever before as they approach the release of their latest and perhaps greatest studio effort, ‘Cryptoriana – The Seductiveness Of Decay’. Even Kerrang! Magazine recently exclaimed that they “have created a gothic horror that makes Mary Shelley’s Frankenstein look like The Emoji Movie.”

As they prepare to introduce these stunning new songs to their dedicated global fan base, CRADLE OF FILTH have never been more powerful or their excellence so undeniable. It’s been a long 5 years between tours, but Australia fans finally get their chance in 2018. […]

Snap Scene: The Mavis’s, Prince Bandroom 11th May 2018

May 16, 2018 Mandy Hall

Celebrating the 20 year anniversary of their award winning and chart topping album pink pills, The Mavis’s are hitting the road to play a limited run of shows to celebrate. Featuring songs spanning all 3 albums of their career, original members Matt, Beki and Nik will be touring together for the first time in over 15 years. Best known for their chart topping single Cry, The Mavis’s were staples on the radio and the TV in the 90s with songs such as Thunder, Lever, Puberty Song and Naughty Boy. Always hard to pigeon hole, The Mavis’s’ sound walked a tightrope between lush, layered pop, space age dub and electro, and hard edged guitar driven rock… with the duelling male female/ brother sister vocals. Their hit album Pink Pills effortlessly combined all these sounds to create one of the most eclectic and exciting albums of the nineties.  […]

Recipe Scene: Fairy Bread Lamingtons

May 16, 2018 Kate Delbridge

A friend told me about these and I had to give them a go. Although they are a bit fiddly and time consuming to make they are well worth it – not just for the wow factor, but because they taste delicious. I use Margaret Fulton’s basic butter cake recipe but you can of course use any cake recipe you like. The icing recipe is from Taste online. The icing will look very runny but it is supposed to be a thin consistency. Make sure you drain each cake really well before dipping in the hundreds and thousands, or else the icing and hundreds and thousands will run off. As with most baking, I think you can’t beat doughnut jam for the filling, but if you don’t have any then any raspberry jam will be delicious. […]
