Live Concerts

  • Live at the Enmore Theatre, Sydney. On a magical night in Sydney back in 2011, The Church performed three of their greatest albums in one great show – ‘Starfish’, ‘Priest=Aura’ and the modern masterpiece that is ‘Untitled #23’. We’ve already published the Starfish and Untitled #23 sets, and this release of ‘Priest=Aura’ completes the night. Steve Kilbey, the band’s songwriter and front man was rightly proud of this album describing it in his autobiography an “undisputed masterpiece” – we very much agree.  
  • Live at the Enmore Theatre, Sydney. The Church continue to redefine what it is to be a band, evolving without compromise into one of the world’s most acknowledged rock groups. Guiding the band though the ‘80s and ‘90s with a combination of chemistry, talent and a desire for excellence, their unique and distinctive guitar sounds and thought-provoking lyrics have succeeded in inspiring both the audience and the critics’ imagination the world over. Following their induction into the 2010 ARIA Hall Of Fame, they were able to reflect on their huge body of work as they continued to pursue their artistic aspirations both live and in the studio. On this night in 2011, they performed 3 albums in full - their then current release Untitled #23 as well as two of their slam dunk classics, Priest=Aura and Starfish. This is the Starfish set - watch for the others soon. Sublime.  
  • Live at the Enmore Theatre, Sydney. If you’ve already watched their Starfish set on Moshcam (featuring Under the Milky Way, a stone cold classic if ever there was one), you’ll be aware that in 2011 we captured this incomparable band playing three of their most iconic albums in full – Starfish, Priest = Aura and this one: 2009′s lush, organic masterpiece Untitled #23 presented here in all its glory. Rolling Stone Australia gave this album an unprecedented 5 star review – “a stunningly ambitious album of shimmering rock”. In the USA, Rolling Stone commented that the band had “truly reaffirmed themselves as one of the world’s leading melodic art-rock bands”. If you don’t know them, you’re in for a treat – and if you do know them, well then you won’t be disappointed!  
  • Live at the Angel Place Recital Hall, Sydney. The Cinematic Orchestra is a British-based jazz and electronic outfit, created in the late 1990s by Jason Swinscoe. In both live and studio context, The Cinematic Orchestra employ a live band which improvises along with a turntablist and electronic elements such as samples provided by Swinscoe. In their studio releases Swinscoe will often remix the live source material to produce a finished product that is seamless combination of live jazz improvisation with electronics, such that it is difficult to tell where the improvisation ends and the production begins. This great show in a fabulous venue in Sydney dates from 2009.  
  • Live at The Troxy, London. Described earlier in their career by Q magazine as the biggest cult band in the world (huh?), The Cribs are an English three-piece indie rock band that emerged in 2001. With 4 UK Top 10 albums under their belt, they are still going strong despite label and management disputes in recent years and a COVID induced hiatus from live performance. This show was recorded in London during 2012 around the time of their fifth album ‘In The Belly Of The Brazen Bull’ (which made it to #8 on NME’s end of year list) and this show, not surprisingly, features many of the songs off that album including singles ‘Glitters Like Gold’ and ‘Chi-Town’.  
  • Live at the Metro Theatre, Sydney. Initially an instrumental band with a strong 'surf' sound, they eventually joined forces with vocalist Tex Perkins and became one of Australia's most successful bands, winning major awards including multiple ARIA Awards in 1993. They were still firing on all cylinders when we captured one of their all too infrequent shows in 2008.  
  • Live at the Enmore Theatre, Sydney. All killer, no filler! A cracking show zooming to you straight from 2008  
  • Live at Manning Bar, Sydney. One of the hardest rocking bands to ever come out of New Zealand, The Datsuns were lauded (quite rightly so!) by the UK music press in particular during the early 2000s (including winning NME’s Best Live Band for 2002). Their second album was produced by Zeppelin legend John Paul Jones no less! Captured here in all their glory during a 2008 Australian tour to support their fourth album, ‘Headstunts’ (an anagram of The Datsuns), this will force you to sit up and take notice. We thought they’d gone forever, but we were thrilled to see them release a new album ‘Eye to Eye’ in 2021.  
  • Live at the Metro Theatre, Sydney. Hailing from Portland, Oregon The Decemberists made their first Australian pilgrimage in 2010 on the back of their 2009 release (The Hazards Of Love), the follow-up to their 2006 breakthrough, The Crane Wife - and we were there to capture it. From their debut, Castaways and Cutouts, in 2002, and its follow-up Her Majesty only a year later, the band have been defined by their eccentricities from the beginning. Producing 18-minute songs, tangled narratives, and featuring accordions, cellos, Wurlitzers, bouzoukis and hurdy-gurdies, The Decemberists are no ordinary band.  
  • Live at the No Sleep ‘Til festival, Sydney. This legendary LA hard core punk band emerged in the late 70s and have provided obvious inspiration to a range of well-known bands that followed in their wake like Blink 182, Green Day and The Offspring. They’re still going strong today despite the loss of some core members along the way (and many ‘breaks’ given singer Milo Aukerman’s other job as a biologist!). We caught this show back in 2010 when they reunited for a brief run of shows amongst their various other commitments. Their most recent album ‘9th & Walnut’ was released in 2021.  
  • Live at KOKO, London. New York City's The Drums are half jangly '80s-style indie pop and half twangy '50s-inspired surf rock. One night in 2015, they tore through London's KOKO like we've never seen before.  
  • Live at the Metro Theatre, Sydney. The Exploited is a punk rock band from the second wave of UK punk, formed in late 1979 or early 1980. Here they are livin' the dream in 2007.  
  • Live at the Metro Theatre, Sydney. Glen Hansard came to prominence in The Frames. He found crossover stardom with Marketa Irglova in the film Once and its associated soundtrack. This is one of our earliest shows and dates from 2007  
  • Live at the Annandale Hotel, Sydney. Formed in New Jersey in 2006, and equal parts Springsteen, punk and NJ hardcore, these guys were on a tear when we captured them on their first visit to Australia in 2008 around the time of their classic breakthrough album ‘The ’59 Sound’ (rated by NME as No 47 in the list of best albums of 2008). Many of the songs from that album are featured here. Sadly no more it seems (after a brief reunion tour in 2018 to celebrate the 10th anniversary of ‘The ’59 Sound’), this show delivers the burning passion that they were known for.  
  • Live at the Metro Theatre, Sydney. We captured these Swedish garage rockers in full flight during 2009. Stand back!  
  • Live at the Metro Theatre, Sydney. There's some days we especially love shooting concerts and this was one of them - The Hives' sensational covers show from 2009. Led by their irrepressible front man Howlin' Pelle Almqvist, it's a fast, furious and deliriously fun show dedicated to the acts who've shaped The Hives' DNA. Featuring old school favourites from Billie Holiday, Mel Dorsey and Joy Ryder and Avis Davis to classics from Australian acts as diverse as The Saints and Flash and The Pan, the band pay tribute in their own riotous fashion. As Almqvist says: "This show is a pleasure for us and it sure is a pleasure for you too, right?" Too right!
