Hit The Road, Jack

Stuart : 1 November 2017 15:36 : News

Breaking News: For the final 2017 Sydney and Melbourne shows, the entire Hunters and Collectors brass section – The Horns of Contempt – will be joining Midnight Oil!

The magnificent Jack Howard – best known here for the Hunters brass we know and love – has been touring the world with Midnight Oil throughout this year.

He’s not just doing occasional trumpet, as he told us:

…as the days and weeks roll on and the immense scope of the song list becomes apparent, I am given a myriad of cowbell, keyboard, backing vocal, flugel horn, trumpet and lemon shaker roles to fulfill. I even get to provide comic relief during the shows eventually – playing Rob’s drums (Simmons pads in Generals Talk) when he ventures front of stage to play the cocktail kit and sing.

Jack has plenty more to share on Facebook!

Midnight Oil and Hunters and Collectors have a long standing relationship over the last thirty years – remembered fondly by many international fans for the 1990 tour where Hunters supported the Oils.

Check out the full Midnight Oil tour dates here.

Jack Howard & Epic Brass @ Memo

Stuart : 29 September 2017 09:44 : News

Fresh from an incredible year of touring the world with Midnight Oil, JACK HOWARD returns to MEMO (St Kilda) with his mighty EPIC BRASS show on Friday the 8th of December 2017.

Together with his epic band (Ash Davies, Steve Hadley, Nicky Del Rey and Jason Kain), five piece horn section and a stellar cast of guests, Jack will be performing the great horn hits and hidden gems of Australian Rock.

The set list is to die for – the big horn songs of The Saints, The Oils, H & C, Laughing Clowns and many more; and with guests like Ron Peno (Died Pretty), Steve Lucas (X), Penny Ikinger (Wet Taxis), Evil Dick (Hits), Paul Stewart (Painters and Dockers) and Fiona Lee Maynard, the show is one helluva spectacle.

EPIC BRASS was launched to a capacity crowd at MEMO in July 2016 and it was an unforgettable night. For many punters, it was the gig of the year. Here’s a typical reaction:

Often when you’re expecting something to be great, it doesn’t meet expectations. Last night, Jack Howard’s Epic Brass show high-jumped over expectations, then did a triple somersault with a perfect landing. Congratulations, Jack and everyone involved! Still buzzing about it today.

This is a unique show full of POWER and PASSION – and HORNS! DON’T MISS OUT!

Extensive Music Chart Data

Stuart : 26 September 2017 12:10 : News

Data fans will love the new data we have got our hands on, courtesy of the Australian Record Industry Association (ARIA)!

We now know the peak chart positions of anything you can imagine that reached the top 250 from the ARIA era – 1989 forward. This includes top 100 peak positions within individual states.

For example, we knew the Back in the Hole single missed the top 100, but now we know it peaked at #105, doing the best in Victoria (#63). There is lots of cool stuff in here!

For the full data, visit the music chart data page. Data has also been included in the extremely detailed formal discography document. The data will also soon be found on individual song and album pages where appropriate 🙂

The four front men of the classic 80s blues punk lineup are getting together for the first time since 1990 – my brother, howling frontman Chris Marshall, razor sharp lead guitarist Barry Palmer, Chris Wilson with his mighty blues harp, and myself as chief groovemeister.

We’ll be helped out by a deadly rhythm section of Ash Davies of Crown of Thorns, Models, etc, etc and Kim Volkman, fresh from the X reunion tour. Support will be from Sand Pebbles and James McCann & the New Vindictives. Gonna be a great night!

Human Frailty Vinyl Re-Issue

Stuart : 18 August 2017 18:02 : News

You have asked… and asked… and asked… and here it is!

Originally released in 1986, ‘Human Frailty’ was the commercial breakthrough that Hunters & Collectors had promised for a few years finally coming to fruition.

Spearheaded by the explosive single “Say Goodbye,” the albums place in Australian musical history was cemented with the release of “Throw Your Arms Around Me,” an Australian classic if ever there was one.

Decades out of print, ‘Human Frailty’ is now reissued on premium quality vinyl.

Buy at JB’s Hi-Fi.
