Snap Scene: THEORY (of a Deadman) – Prince Bandroom – 26th June 2018

“Complacency is such a disease when you’re in a band,” says Tyler Connolly, singer and guitarist for Vancouver, Canada’s THEORY (Of A Deadman). “People are so afraid to progress, but you have to change—you can’t just write the same song over and over. So when I saw where this record was going, I said to the other guys, ‘We’re in a car and it’s going off a cliff. Do you want to jump out or ride it to the bottom?’’ […]

Review Scene: Paul Capsis – Memo Music Hall, 23rd June 2018

What a talent Paul Capsis is. Within the confines of one season you might catch him in a cabaret, on the box in an award-winning movie or like us, singing his heart out in one of Melbourne’s best venues. Who could fail to find intrigue in seeing and hearing Capsis performing some of his most loved songs? Beginning with the Skyhooks ‘Ego is not a dirty word’ then moving into a synthesis of the Eurythmics ‘Sweet Dreams’ and The Doors ‘People are strange’, we immediately know that while the songs might be as comfortable as our old flannelette pyjamas, the execution of them would leave us gasping.

Snap Scene: In Oakleigh Tonight with Deborah Conway & Ash Naylor, Caravan Music CLub. 21st June 2018

Host RRR’s Jon von Goes and the IOT house band were joined by guests Deborah Conway and Ash Naylor (Even).

lt’s like being at home watching telly when there were 4 channels and everything was live. Singing, dancing, interviews, a desk, a couch, a house band, a house poet, a barrel, a wheel, prizes, mall talk, local legends, big names, small names, dinner, show. All in the comfort of the caravan music club where drinks are still reasonably inexpensive. […]

Recipe Scene: Chocolate Chip Banana Cake

This recipe is from Bill Granger’s cookbook Bill’s Food. He calls it choc chip banana bread but to me it is most definitely a cake. A delicious cake that smells divine while it’s cooking and tastes absolutory sensational. The version here is slightly healthier than the one in the book. I’ve replaced the white flour with wholemeal flour, reduced the sugar a bit and switched out the milk choc chips for dark. I usually make this in two bar tins so I have a cake for us and one to give away. However usually the kids insist we keep them both. […]
