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.

Doug Touring With X

Stuart : 2 June 2017 19:27 : News

Our favourite drummer, Doug Falconer, is back on the road… with seminal Sydney punk rock band X for their 40th anniversary Australian tour.

Over three studio albums (with a fourth of early demos issued in 2011), three live albums and a handful of singles, X left a blistering impression of aggressive bass driven punk.

Long after the passing of legendary bassist Ian Rilen, guitarist Steve Lucas is keeping the X dream alive. For the 2017 tour, Lucas has called upon Kim Volkman (Love Addicts), and Doug Falconer to join him to deliver the best of X. Not just the music – not just the songs, but the intent!

List of tour dates:

X with Doug

Friday JULY 14 – Prince of Wales – Melbourne

Roll Back The Stone Out Now!

Stuart : 24 March 2017 15:22 : News

Mark Seymour and The Undertow are back with Roll Back The Stone, a double album retrospective recorded recently in front of fans at the Bakehouse in Melbourne.

There are twenty four songs here, gleaned from thirty years of writing. Chosen for their structure and storytelling power, these are the ones that have stood up, beginning in 1985 to the current album ‘Mayday’ which was released last year… It is also a way to introduce the band, the ‘Undertow’ who have an uncanny knack of sounding big when there are only four on stage.

– Mark Seymour

Fans may notice that a massive 12 featured tracks have never appeared in a live format before, including the underrated Hunters classic Still Hanging ‘Round and six tracks from Mark’s best and most recent solo album, Mayday.

H&C at 2017 Clipsal 500 Adelaide!

Stuart : 13 February 2017 19:04 : News

Hunters and Collectors with the Baby Animals – Saturday 4 March 2017!

You won’t want to miss this. Exclusively reuniting for Clipsal 500 Adelaide in 2017, iconic Aussie rock band Hunters & Collectors are headlining the Saturday night concert!

18 years have passed since the ARIA Hall of Fame inductees disbanded, with only a handful of live performances since the 2009 Sound Relief concert in Melbourne. You’ll know their iconic singles ‘Throw Your Arms Around Me’, ‘Do You See What I See’ and ‘When The River Runs Dry’. The return of the legendary rock group at the 2017 Clipsal 500 Adelaide is set to be one of the most sought after tickets on the Australian music calendar.

Hunters & Collectors will be joined on Saturday 4 March by special guests Baby Animals. The popular group founded in Perth last year celebrated the 25th anniversary of their debut single ‘Early Warning’ which spent six weeks at number one, eventually going eight times platinum and becoming the highest-selling debut Australian rock album of all time.

Tickets can be purchased at TicketMaster!
