Here's another link - to Ian Rilen's obit in the Sydney Morning Herald. Rock'n'roll just ain't the same... We've gone all the way down Lonely Street, to Heartbreak Hotel, where the Love Addicts gig this weekend has been cancelled. Just you wait for the band's second album The Family From Cuba to come out through Phantom next year though. It's gonna destroy your CD player (in a good way). Loved this bad boy for good.
Here's the Sydney Morning Herald link to my obituary of Lisa Bellear. Dear Lisa was such a livewire connecting up so many damn power stations that this obituary, first printed in The Age (where you'll have to pay to view, searching through the paper's main site) headed to the SMH and thence to Green Left Weekly, Thylacine, Poetry International and elsewhere. Forget nuclear, just get Lisa to stick a thumb in it and it would have lit up right away. Let's not weep, but get up on our feet and keep moving for living reconciliation like her family John Harding, Destiny Deacon and the Bellears do... yeah Lisa, you lit the way alright.
