Shearwater – London – 22 November 2008

"I don't know. I feel a bit naughty playing here", confides Jonathan Meiburg, singer with the Austin, Texas outfit Shearwater, sitting in front of a grand piano in St.Giles in the Fields, an 17th century church in London's West End. As a packed audience crammed pews to watch in rapt appreciation, Shearwater settled in to

Supergrass – Brisbane – 2 October 2008

"How you doin'? You alright?" asks an out of breath Gaz Coombes during their first Brisbane show in several years. The assembled punters shout back "yeah!", hoping that the next song will be the golden goose turned albatross hit "Alright". It isn't, but no one is really displeased when it turns out to be another

The Breeders – London – 4 September 2008

For a long time The Breeders seemed to go the way of the Pixies. As both Deal sisters battled their demons, Kim with liquor and Kelley with drugs, attempts at reviving their careers in the late '90s proved disappointing. Returning with Mountain Battles, their second album since their comeback in 2002, The Breeders bounced back

Kent – Gothenburg – 25 July 2008

In a concert replete with spectacle and grandeur the most memorable moment arrives, fittingly, at the conclusion: while Kent pound out the last notes to the epic "Mannen i den vita hatten" ("The Man in the White Hat"), with the stage bathed in sodium light, gigantic blowers spew out white confetti over the 20,000 strong

Hoodoo Gurus – London – 4 July 2008

"I can still recall the time" began Dave Faulkner, as he stood in front of 1500 Australians (and some locals) at London's Forum last Friday night. This time those words held a little more poignancy, playing in the same venue Hoodoo Gurus once played a little over twenty years ago. Powering through with a set

Spoon – Atlanta – 14 April 2008

Spoon Centre Stage, Atlanta, GA 14th April 2008 It's Britt Daniel's birthday but you wouldn't know it. There's no cake and candles, no rambunctious behaviour or jokes. You'd be expecting the band to be soused and swaying, playing covers and celebrating the occasion, using the opportunity to cut loose. In fact Daniel looks embarrassed as
