Snap Scene: Jason Bonham Led Zeppelin Experience , The Palais – Thursday 24th May 2018

May 31, 2018 Mary Boukouvalas

The Jason Bonham Led Zeppelin Experience (JBLZE) carries the bloodline of legendary drummer John Henry ‘Bonzo’ Bonham, an icon who passed away at just 32 years old. Son Jason was then 14.

Now 51, with a stellar career under his belt, Bonham junior’s critically acclaimed show seems a far cry from the first time he performed. At the tender age of four, Jason was seen deftly twirling drumsticks behind a mini Ludwig drumkit, in a home-movie segment of Led Zeppelin’s benchmark concert film, The Song Remains the Same. […]

Remembering Ros O’Gorman 1960 – 2018

May 31, 2018 Mary Boukouvalas

It was always a good gig with Ros in the pit. A beautiful person. She loved music, family, friends and a good Chardonnay.

Quite frankly, What’s My Scene would not exist without Ros. Her mentorship and tireless enthusiasm kept us going.

A great friend. An excellent photographer. We’ll miss you Ros. […]

Snap Scene: LA Guns – Max Watts, Melbourne 18th May 2018

May 28, 2018 Mary Boukouvalas

L.A. GUNS was formed in 1982 by guitar player Tracii Guns and, then unknown singer, Axl Rose on lead vocals.

The “classic lineup” of Guns, former Girl singer Phil Lewis, drummer Steve Riley, guitar player Mick Cripps and bassist Kelly Nickels have sold 6.5 million records, including 1988’s L.A. Guns and 1990’s Cocked and Loaded, both of which were certified Gold. Cocked and Loaded contained the hit single “Ballad of Jayne” that went to #33 on Billboard’s Hot 100 and #25 on the Mainstream Rock charts.

After a nearly 15-year break, Philip Lewis and Tracii Guns are back together for another chapter in their part­nership that began in 1986, 4 years after Tracii formed L.A. GUNS in 1982. […]

Snap Scene: Kid Congo & the Pink Monkey Birds – The Old Bar, Fitzroy, 14th May 2018

May 22, 2018 Mary Boukouvalas

After two sell-out Australian tours, legendary voodoo guitarist for seminal sexy bands like The Cramps, Nick Cave & the Bad Seeds and The Gun Club, Kid Congo Powers returned to Australia in May 2018.

Bringing back a heady mix of fuzz guitar, New Orleans drum beats and bass lines dripping with soul, Kid Congo & the Pink Monkey Birds “cast garage-surf-spaghetti-western-retro-futuristic magic”.

One of rock n’ roll’s true legends.

Snap Scene: Shrimpwitch – The Old Bar, Fitzroy, 14th May 2018.

May 22, 2018 Mary Boukouvalas

From deep down in Melbourne’s rock pool, crustacean-sensations, Shrimpwitch have emerged from the waves to blow landlubbers away with their debut shrimp-charged garage punk and mock rock EP, Eggs Eggs Eggs, out May 5 on Hysterical Records.

The fabulous two piece, Georgi Goonsack and Kim Prawn, are the first release from the Hysterical Records label. Their ferociously raw and high-energy rock and roll performances explore the hardness and softness of the Shrimpwitch shell with uproarious banter, rock outfits and humour. […]
