    "The last time I saw Pet Shop Boys would have been at the old V-Fest music festival [Do you even remember that??] sometime in the mid 2000's. I'm going with 2006. It was a warm and sultry Summer evening, and after seeing the standards of that era [Cut Copy and Sneaky Sound System], Pet Shop Boys came on stage and started doing their thing. I was getting into it, and of course everyone wanted to go see some awfully overrated DJ. In hindsight, I was sad I didn't get to see the boys play as I had always been aware of them and their music, having been a kid in the early nineties, I still remember how much of an impact they had back then. You only need to remember Go West's titanic anthem and it's carry-over with bringing LGBT culture to the fore. Or the outrageously camp Absolutely Fabulous with its overtones of fun and silliness which matched perfectly the furore and frenetic humour of the show it was promoting. Or even Se A Vida E with it's cool summery sound and message of universal love."

My 30th Birthday aka Marrickville Rock ‘N’ Roll Juke Joint!

2014 is the year I turn 30, an auspicious age for anyone, regardless of their circumstances, or thoughts thereof. I never really took too much stock in the whole mad rush that seems to creep into most people’s lives once they hit the 25-26 mark, where the initial fun-rush of the early 20’s fades away … Continue reading
