Heart in the Highlands. Bob Dylan with Paul Kelly. Entertainment Centre. [review]
(Adelaide Review, 2001-04)
This time he blew in from the West. Still on the Neverending Tour, and back in Australia - three years on, and sixth time round - Bob Dylan has turned his Sisyphean treadmill into a victory lap.
Remaining in Light. "David Byrne". Norwood Concert Hall [review]
(The Adelaide Review, 2005-03-04)
Talking Heads, as their name suggests, were very much a high concept band and, like other Seventies exponents of art pop such as Devo and Kraftwerk, their’s was a studied, highly theatrical persona. So it is not just ...
Kelly Rides With New Gang. "Paul Kelly". Her Majesty's Theatre [review]
(The Adelaide Review, 2004-06)
I like Paul Kelly to stay the same and tend to get tetchy when he changes things around, especially when he tinkers with his band line-up. I couldn’t see why he had to shoot the Messengers or why he would hire hotshot ...
Audio with Pictures. "Music DVDs" [review]
(The Adelaide Review, 2003-06)
The arrival of the DVD has been rapid in Australia. We are well-known for our speedy take-up of new technology but the saturation of the market by the digital versatile disc has been particularly swift even by our standards. ...

(The Adelaide Review, 2004-09-28)
It is only eight months since we saw UK band Muse at Big Day Out, but now they are back with more fans and a lot more fanfare. Their stocks have risen with the release of their latest album, Absolution, a recent tour with ...
Single Bill. Billy Bragg with Dave Graney Show. Norwood Concert Hall. [review]
(Adelaide Review, 2001-11)
The prospect of The Dave Graney Show on the same card as Billy Bragg made this event doubly appealing. But I am sorry to report Mr Graney ‘s opening set is a disappointment. On stage and nearing the end of his solo tour, ...

You Can (Still) Get Anything You Want …. Arlo Guthrie. Norwood Concert Hall. [review]
(Adelaide Review, 2004-07)
There is something irrepressibly good-natured about Arlo Guthrie and he’s been like that for forty years. Opening with "Chilling of the Evening", one of his earliest folk rock songs, he follows with a string band ditty ...
Distant Light Shines Brightly. Alex Lloyd. Heaven II. [review]
(Adelaide Review, 2003-12)
The Heaven set strongly favours the new CD. The title track, Distant Light follows, with Felix Bloxsom’s choppy drum intro curving into those close vocal harmonies - it won’t be long, a Lennon McCartney mantra with ...
