What’s the Rockbrat Viewing Today? BADFINGER – Baby Blue (1972)

They could have been the next Beatles - but a series of tragedies, mismanagement and rip offs left Badfinger as one of the most maligned rock bands of all time. If the Ed Sheerans of the world could pen a tune half as decent as this - I'd give him his fair due. Yet he … Continue reading What’s the Rockbrat Viewing Today? BADFINGER – Baby Blue (1972)

What’s The Rockbrat Viewing Today ? DIZZY DOLLZ – Live at Kardomah Cafe, Kings Cross 1992

What’s The Rockbrat Viewing Today ? HEY! HELLO! SWIMWEAR (2013)

Here’s a good one – ‘Swimwear’, the recent video from Ginger Wildheart and his new pop combo Hey! Hello! Drenched in Cheap Trick pop sensibilities, ‘Swimwear’ shows that catchy heavy pop is still bankable in 2013. Hey! Hello! Features the very easy-on-the-eye Victoria Liedtke. In late July they released their self-titled, debut album (all via … Continue reading What’s The Rockbrat Viewing Today ? HEY! HELLO! SWIMWEAR (2013)

What’s The Rockbrat Viewing Today ? HELEN SCHNEIDER – Rock ‘n’ Roll Gypsy (1981)

Some years ago I recall a conversation I had with a woman who was somewhat illiterate when it came to rock 'n' roll. What sticks in my memory is that she raved on and on and on about the Eddie & The Cruisers movie which was released in 1983. From memory, the film was somewhat contrived, … Continue reading What’s The Rockbrat Viewing Today ? HELEN SCHNEIDER – Rock ‘n’ Roll Gypsy (1981)

What’s The Rockbrat Viewing Today: SHERBET – MATTER OF TIME (1975)

One of the long lost Aussie rock classics from the mid 70s - this is very Brit-glam flavoured, and you could be mistaken for thinking it was a UK band. Nope, Sherbet, with Garth on lead vocals. This was the B side of the 'Only One You" 7" which went Top Ten in late 1975. The video … Continue reading What’s The Rockbrat Viewing Today: SHERBET – MATTER OF TIME (1975)

What’s The Rockbrat Viewing Today ? STEFFANIE – TOUCH THE SUN (1995)

And on the eight day – God created Steffanie. When at other times he was not focused on the job and carelessly produced herds of bull necked swamp donkeys, he sure was paying attention to detail the day he created Steffanie, cos in her he did indeed create one stunning, shapely creature (slobber)…..who grew up … Continue reading What’s The Rockbrat Viewing Today ?

What’s The Rockbrat Viewing Today ? Kiss: Animalize – Live Uncensored

Some facts - I owned this thing back in the day. The day - as in 1985. Can I say that ? I wonder how that rates in this world of 'Kiss cool'  where, it is how old you were when you got into Kiss, which gives you the serious cred amongst your fellow Kissers...you … Continue reading What’s The Rockbrat Viewing Today ?

What’s The Rockbrat Viewing Today ? DIVINYLS – US FESTIVAL ’83

Chrissie Amphlett appeared on Australian TV this year talking about her crippling battle with MS, looking frail and aged. After being inducted into the ARIA Hall Of Fame in 2006, and a brief reformation, she and Mark McEntee finally laid the Divinyls to rest in 2009. I have many great memories of seeing Divinyls with Mr. Rockbrat. I am fortunate to have … Continue reading What’s The Rockbrat Viewing Today ? DIVINYLS – US FESTIVAL ’83
