LARRY KRONICK JR & ANDEE FROST at the HILLBILLY STAGE
Sweet baby Jesus, this man. A Boogie legend and veteran that needs no introduction, but let’s do it anyway. JASON ISBELL, whose southern songs drip with the highs and lows of love and life, is just an incredible man and musician. It takes a special kind of artist to bring a grown man to tears and this guy is that kind of special. Joining us solo at Boogie 4, then again at Boogie 8 with full band, we’re now counting down the days till he throws his guitar in the back of the pick-up and travels down the road that brings his sweet southern songs back to our hearts and minds.
ENDLESS BOOGIE. It’s what we all want, in more ways than one. We love them. They’re a real rock and roll band. So good! Endlessly good. We didn’t nearly get close to enough of them last time cos their style of blast doesn’t ever get old. So we’ve invited them back to our beautiful dirt to help us celebrate the big one zero. We’ll leave out the comparisons to other musical prophets ‘cus at the end of the day it’s the sonic stats left on Endless Boogie’s page of the Rock & Roll Almanac that tell their story. We’re not licensed shamans but these ears don’t lie. Play on, we don’t mind.
OMFNG, for that seminal 90s sound look no further than SPIRAL STAIRS. Seriously, holy shit. This is the solo project of Scott Kannberg (aka Spiral) of a little band you might have heard of called Pavement and another called Preston School of Industry (that also used to perform at times under the pseudonym Spiral Stairs). This solo incarnation of the same namesake came together between Seattle and Australia over 5 years of serious emotional upheaval that sets the tone for its dark and potent honesty. This is personal, about the heavy stuff in life. It’s haunted blues of a bruised soul, with a soused late-night ambience that perfectly fits it’s scuffed and sad-eyed ballads as well as its more strident rock moments not to mention we seriously lose our shit when he describes it as having an “Australian” sound.
He’s a man with the kind of outlaw swagger that’s reminiscent of a day when front men gave back bucket loads of charm and were shrouded in enigmatic mystery. And with so many creative pursuits continually on the boil is a true Renaissance man. HENRY WAGONS AND THE ONLY CHILDREN will be making their way down to good-town this Boogie, bringing with them brand new cuts from his first ever solo album that’s been freshly minted in Nashville. No doubt we’ll be spoilt with an array of new tunes alongside a swag of classic faves.
Adelaide. It’s a bad dream. The Mitsubishi plant is closed. Trams stopped there in 1958. There’s been a decade long bikie war. It’s the murder capital, the weed capital. Venues keep closing and good bands keep leaving. But there’s no time to wallow in the mire. If you do it’ll suck you away. BAD//DREEMS know this. That’s why they got together the summer before last, sweating out their hangovers in a warehouse next to the West End Brewery exploring a sound that draws from the Australian underground of the late 70s and 80s and the darkness and neuroses of their badlands. With stoic optimism and giving it a bloody crack they’re keepin’ on. BAD//DREEMS’ schooner is still half full.
EVEN is as even does. And even does okay by us. It all started back in 1994 when Wally Meanie moonlighting from his duties with The Meanies got together with Ashley Naylor and Matthew Cotter who were former band mates from The Swarm. This iconic indie-rock three-piece is unashamedly influenced by and emulates the classic pop/rock of the '60s and '70s and 21 years on they’ve never had a line up change. They’ve hardly even had an argument. That’s not very rock ’n roll, is it? They’ve toured here there and everywhere, from tiny pubs in Adelaide to arenas in Paris, released more albums and put out more compilations than you’ve had hot dinners, started their own record label, been nominated for ARIAs and still gig on rare and special occasions. We could go on, but you know how good they are.
LOS CHICOS literally caved our stage in the first time they thrashed at Boogie. It collapsed when they asked everyone to come up on stage and dance with them. So, what did we do after a near miss with a public liability lawsuit? Invited them back for Boogie 9 to do it all again. Now we actually can’t wait for this country-punk-rock-soul-gospel machine to blow once again. These great party defenders are a mix between Black Flag and the Shananas or like Otis Redding with a Texas Punk Garage band whose gear is about to explode!
Oh Eilen!! Please come back to the Boogie and celebrate our tenth year with us. You are? Good! American singer-songwriter EILEN JEWELL from Boise, Idaho is the queen of the minor key. As hard as it is to categorize her music —terms like alt-country, roots-rock, country-noir, and Americana get used all the time. Even harder is not becoming completely enraptured by her powerful versatility and musical stories and the gorgeous voice that makes you feel like she’s singing just for you out on the breezy back porch or by a crackling campfire. She does so much, and so much so well.
There’s no better combo than beer and punk rock and when Melbourne punk rock royalty THE MEANIES dropped their first album in 21 years earlier this year it made us feel all the goodness of being in a packed and sweaty Punters Club with our feet sticking to the carpet like it was the 90s all over again. And damn it felt good. They got off their arses and put something new out when they saw the renaissance that their pals in the Cosmic Psychos were having and the best part about it is it’s like they picked up exactly where they left off. The Meanies are back ... and it's your shout.
HOSS are almost TOO good. You know, when you have been eating sensibly and then you have a huge and fabulous meal that is so good, so beautiful and overwhelming that you actually vomit before the delicate sorbet? Well, train your gullets Motherfuckers! Because Hoss are going to serve up the purest rocking distillation of every hard-ass rocking molten bitchen fuckn AAAAGGGGHHHHH!!!! Seriously, after 26 years of this they’re one delicious casserole, a mash of all the greatest hard rock since Rock (and Roll) was invented and played with love and aggro - it's damn good feed. But prepare yourselves we don't want anyone getting ill. Oh, there will even be new songs! Just warning y'all.
A small package that packs a big punch, EMILY ULMAN is simply beyond compelling. With a clear voice and poetic openness as a songwriter along with a nuanced storytelling style this gal is just all things Melbourne music. When we heard she was working with some of the best musos around town on her first album in ten years we couldn’t wait to hear it and welcome her back to the Boogie stage. The grooves on Ulman’s new album ‘Wear It Well’ are close to worn out and it’s earned its place alongside our other timeless Aussie faves.
Two guys meet at a bar and a band is born. It’s a story as old as beer on tap and like all good stories, IMMIGRANT UNION’S started with a few drinks and then maybe a few dozen more. The story got a little more interesting when the duo started turning simple chords and melodies into completed songs, added a swag of talented musos, and made polished recordings of those songs. When empty band rooms became epic party gigs the rest became a beautiful psych-folk-country happy ending where lifelong friends were made of these music-loving barflies.
THOSE PRETTY WRONGS is Jody Stephens, the former drummer of Big Star and Luther Russell, former frontman of the ’90s L.A. band The Freewheelers. Their beautiful union started when Jody was asked to sings a few songs for a screening of the ‘Big Star: Nothing Can Hurt Me’ documentary. He called Luther to ask him to join on guitar and he did. After soundcheck sitting in a car out in the parking lot Luther asked Jody about writing songs together. Musical ideas went back and forth - lyrics and melody lines were left as voicemails by Jody to which Luther added guitar, piano, additional melodies and more lyrics. The two became partners and after they’d written about nine songs and played their first gig knew this would be a good time. Hell, they even play Thirteen in the set.
THE CACTUS CHANNEL started about 5 years ago in an East Brunswick share-house where creativity was being cultivated in every room in a kind of organic DIY studio experiment. We’re talking someone cutting up tape, sampling drums or trying to write a hit song in every alcove, rhythm section tracking in the living room, horns rehearsing in the kitchen and keyboards, guitars, cables and congas everywhere. Five years on, two LPs, three 45s and a ton of notable gigs and collaborations down these guys have secured their place as one of the finest instrumental group in the country.
ORB is the natural product of living in a small town where the rents are low and the heads are high. These guys got together and started playing punked-up 60s R&B and via their various combos over the last decade have worked their way through the Rock n Rock history books - first blending in '70s punk and nu-wave and now - deep in the bong haze of a long Geelong summer - hitting early proto-metal grooves and not coming up for air 'cos that groove don't ever stop and even if it did why would ya ever wanna get out?
ROLLING BLACKOUTS COASTAL FEVER are sporting a fresh moniker after only recently finding out there’s another band with the same name that doesn’t want them using it. Name change aside, these wide-eyed, tight talking, tough pop soft punkers deliver timeless indie-rock in multi-dimensions that sets them apart from the rest. Their golden era vocals, driving bass lines, rolling drum beats and no-fuss steely guitar licks emanates some serious mystic feels that make you wanna crack a Passiona, hop in the Cortina and get on board.
Swept together from the ashes of a fine night on the tiles Melbourne three-piece LOOSE TOOTH craft sweet guitar pop with frayed edges and swollen hearts. Life-long friends Etta Curry and Nellie Jackson met in crèche and spent naptime dreaming of creating a heavenly racket. Long-time friend Luc Dawson was drafted in on bass to transform their pop sketches into the sort of songs that stick in your head for days. So whether they’re spluttering to life on an empty tank or hitting harmonies in full flight, this really is a beautiful thing.
TERRY is getting ready, combing his hair, buttoning his jacket, turning the key in the door. Divide him into four and you get Al Montfort (UV Race, Total Control, Dick Diver etc.), Amy Hill (Constant Mongrel, School Of Radiant Living), Xanthe Waite (Mick Harvey Band) and Zephyr Pavey (Eastlink, Total Control, Russell Street Bombings) – how’s that for a super band?? Inevitably, Terry likes to make noise. Drums, guitars and all his voices come into play, as four become one, making a solid raft for Terry's melancholic musings that navigate life’s languid rapids. This all unravels at its own pace as “Terry” conducts a conversation with the commonplace.
What is it about the stifling depths of outer suburban living in South Australia (see above!!) that spawns extraordinary talent? It is something in the water? We don’t really know but what we do know is that TERRIBLE TRUTHS have turned their local music scene on its head from the get-go. The key to their fresh and spirited sound is challenging every convention. They mix a range of late-70s and early 80s post-punk and no wave sounds with some 90’s riot grrrl flavour and the naïve energy and enthusaism of early DIY punk and hardcore and that’s what makes them stand out amongst their contemporaries. Best thing is they keep turning up the heat on their creative offerings.
This band of brothers Van Walker, Hank Green and Suit Watkins have been turning heads around Melbourne over the last 8 or so months. If you’ve ever had the pleasure of catching GOATPISS GASOLINE out the back of The Pinnacle in North Fitzroy on a Sunday afternoon, then you know this is understated goodness right here. With cigarettes burning in ashtrays, amps buzzing in anticipation, bottle tops popped off, and the sleeves of their flannels rolled up - this is natural potbelly stove and truck blues, played naturally.
The super hot SUGAR FED LEOPARDS are a blazing sextet not unlike a glitter comet plummeting to the ground from the wild side of the disco globe. Their special flavour of disco, doo-wop and soul laced with a twist of rock n roll is known to ignite dance-floors both here and abroad. Smoking hot costumes teamed with sweet and syrupy harmonies, tight dance routines and a cranking rhythm section, has had them breaking out a disco-sweat for the last two years and now they’ve hit their sweet spot with an irresistible sound that’s spawned not only a movement of hysterical proportions but also fanatical fans.
POWER. The name says it all. They embody the brilliance of live Australian hard rock music and the heat of relentless live performances in the greasy confines of inner city pubs. Like many before them, they’re testimony to many late nights twitching and sweating it out, week in and week out, playing it fast and loose at residencies, backyard parties and seemingly hundreds of Tote shows. This is probably why they’ve earned comparisons to the likes of Coloured Balls - who decades before them paved the Melbourne streets and stickied pub carpets for bands like POWER to carry on a very fine Australian tradition today.
Melbourne’s BIG SMOKE are bringing their big hooks and big heart to Bruzzy’s once again. Originally a collective, and then solo project of singer-songwriter Adrian Slattery, BIG SMOKE galvanised as a four-piece when Luke Brennan (drums) Alex O’Gorman (bass) and Tim ‘Big Dog’ Baker (guitar) joined the fold in 2014. With great passion, command and personal, hard-fought-and-won lyrics they dance their way through pop, country and soul and have understandably been likened to The Band and Big Star and the modern class of Alabama Shakes and The War On Drugs.
There's something not to trust about SMILE. They're deceptive. We're living in a post-dolewave world where the economy is up, house prices are soaring and burgers are artisanal. Yet these guys from Melbourne don't give any fucks about property investment. They ain’t a cool breeze, a setting sun, or an SUV. Instead they’re throwing pop hooks, snare drum jabs and vocal uppercuts that make you wonder if they even voted for Tony Abbott. It's fair dinkum UN-Australian.
So that’s what we’ve got happening band-wise – we reckon these buddies are gonna make some pretty beautiful sounds.
Whilst bands are one thing to marvel at, let’s also get your asses shakin’ with some fine DJs to set the tone from the mornings to the late, late nights.
On the decks and the gadgets, let’s roll it out for ANDEE FROST, GINGER LIGHT, TYPICAL GIRLS, WOODY MCDONALD, LYNDELLE, MANCHILD, BT’S COUNTRY MOANINGS and LARRY KRONICK JR.
Rejoice Boogie sinners, the big guy DJ ANDEE FROST is back (again!). The king of handbag gospel has come down from the mountaintop to cleanse our battered ears at the Hillbilly Mardi Gras (again!). What Boogie Sunday would be complete without the big-hatted emperor of anthemic uplifting vinyl beats schantifying all before him? After all these years it’s pretty much a residency! Who needs nangs and poppers when Andee Frost is on da decks? Stick people come down from your trees and worship at the alter of Frostington!!! One more time, with or without feeling!
60s Glamazon and all-round Sassy lady DJ GINGER LIGHT is all about good times and great tunes and the bangers from her impeccable vinyl collection will have you swooning. Sporting a killer combo of brains and beauty, she’s passionate about 50s and 60s blues, RnB, soul, rock ‘n’ roll, girl groups and French classics. Ginger’s DJ set at Boogie is dedicated to her lover the late Rosco (The Electric) Mudcat. Rosco DJed the first tunes at the first boogie ever and the music lives on since his passing. The tunes during this very magical Boogie set are dedicated to the great man and life of our mate The Electric Mudcat.
TYPICAL GIRLS is best mate duo Lucy Lux and Ruby Soho who met DJing at Melbourne’s finest rock ‘n’ roll nightclub Cherry Bar. Lucy continues to rock the Cherry Bar dance floor every second Friday and has done so for the past 11 years whilst Ruby Soho moved her DJ set onto the airwaves at PBS in 2007 when she started her show ‘Garageland’ dedicated to her hero Joe Strummer. One night, after years apart, the girls met at a Fitzroy house party and had a DJ banger off. It ended in an invitation to DJ at a music festival and the gals have been inseparable ever since. The pair only combines their musical powers and records collection on rare and special occasions so we’re thrilled they’re joining us for Boogie’s 10th birthday.
With great excitement Boogie has secured the expertise of revered sonic sage and tune-traveller DJ WOODY McDONALD! The Woodster has been gracing the spoilt ears of Melbourne for over a decade, broadcasting at Triple R with shows like ‘Wig-Wam Bam’ and ‘Primary Colours’ and he does the odd Randy Newman and a bunch of other stuff too! With this man’s highly developed musical muscle, we fortunate few will be in for a treat! Where will the ride take us? Some exultant rock flute? Some obscure psychedelic folk moment? Some thunderous chord never since matched? Some hip-hop, some reggae, some meat and three veg boogie rock? Everything else in between?
DJ LYNDELLE grew up with a dad who loved Neil Diamond and musicals and a mum who loved Tom Jones and the Beatles. Pair that with growing up watching Countdown and Solid Gold, and you end up with a heart that is dipped in disco, soul and rock ‘n’ roll! Part of the PBS FM family for over 12 years, she pioneered 'The Breakfast Spread' and co-hosted the program for 4 years and for the last 3 years presented the Wednesday drive program, 'The Afterglow'. Packing some neo soul, funk, electronic and some retrospective tunes she’ll be bringing a full vinyl set to shower Boogie in an upbeat mix that will bring a flush to your cheeks.
DJ MANCHILD knows a thing or two about The Funk. He is on a lifelong mission to find that Funk and bring it to you. He will travel the world, scouring dusty basements and garages from Abidjan to Tokyo to Mumbai and back, for The Funk. Nothing will stop him in his pursuit of The Funk. He happily gives up food for The Funk. He would gladly sell his body for The Funk. He will laugh in the face of danger and charge headlong into the jaws of ruin all for The Funk. It was in the discos of New York six years ago that he and two conspirators were struck with the inspiration to found 17-piece afrobeat juggernaut The Public Opinion Afro Orchestra and Femi Kuti once invited them to join him on stage at his Afrika Shrine in Lagos and these are mere snippet of his life-long Funk journey across the globe. The force of The Funk is strong in this one.
Each morning BT’S COUNTRY MOANINGS will get your Boogie day rolling and make that sunshine even sweeter. He’ll be busting out the hit picks on 45s of early country and blues, 60s and 70s superstars and rock ‘n’ rock tunes that will ease the mind into the Boogie day ahead - from good ol’ Hank to Sir Douglas, Dylan to The Band, Muddy Waters to early Stones and every West Coast tune that matters.
Last, definitely least, and still on an unnatural high after his recent set at Brainblow Festival, its LARRY KRONICK JNR. We quote from his online profile, "Trainwrecked short order dork with BSOH looking for happy home”. This deluded was-been from an outer-galactic velour wormhole is ready to unleash a melange of glam-Dionysian aural banqueting fit for any bi-curious country mardi gras carnivalesque hoe-down - with generous dollops of psychotic electro-doodle wop disco-afro chakra re-aligned boogaloo funk herbs and spices. He can’t mix, he can’t dance, but the wig remains the same - and the ear-cheese fondue never tasted better! (Pretty much same as it ever was, only with more synthetic crochet).
So there it is people, this fine team of Boogie DJs awaits you!
Now let’s not forget the BOOGIE CLUBHOUSE. A place of nurture - a scene of wild times, new loves, dodgy tunes and absolute genius.
Featuring all weekend, resident PBS FM Acid Country DJ and local hero DAVE HEARD, hot HOMEMADE APPLE PIES with special creams (until sold out) and a bar full of whisky. Saturday is for the lovers, when KITTY BANG hosts two sessions of Speed Dating and Saturday evening will feature a special musical event with the heart-breaking PALM SPRINGS trio taking the stage. Sunday will kick off with the ever-opulent HIGH TEA followed by an afternoon electric alt-country solo show from Melbourne’s JIM LAWRIE. Sunday night will see the return of LOCO LENTO, a night of slow Latin grooves with DJ EMMA PEEL (PBS FM) and MC DANIELO WALSHO.
Lastly, brothers and sisters, our courageous cardboard combatants BOXWARS are upping the anti and will deliver an extra special spectacular to celebrate that we’ve pulled this off for ten years running.
And as well as satiating your ears with the fine smorgasbord of musical offerings at BOOGIE 10 we also have the FINEST FOOD FARE on offer to satisfy your discerning tastebuds. Here they are.

Back once again; fresh and flavoursome, are our favourite Vietnamese inspired street food rulers LIL NOMNOMS. Banh Bao, Banh Mi, Bun Cha, bring it on. The cool thing is, that rather than trying to re-invent Vietnamese street food, they simply share their take on these Vietnamese classics and we hope that you, enjoy nom-ing them just as much as they enjoy making them.
Consider your hunger sorted with MIKE’S PIZZA. They’re big and they’re beautiful and coming direct from Bayside to Boogie Hillside to hit the spot. Freshly made before your eyes with lashings of tasty toppings and delectable melted cheese they’re generous enough to sate any party appetite or great to share around with your nearest and dearest Boogie buddies.
Smith Street Collingwood favourites SUGARPRAWN are coming to Boogie to showcase their pearls of Malaysian street eating and pay homage to the finest and most outrageous points of Malaysian Hawker fare.

For all the Boogie kiddies young and old, the great tradition of our annual EASTER EGG HUNT is back, new and improved and better than ever.

Other special treats include DOMENICO DE CLARIO PIANO RECITAL returning to Boogie for the first time in 8 years to recreate his 24 hour piano recital, which'll be happening in the Shearing Shed and is not to missed.
To round it all out and to celebrate 10 glorious Boogies, we will be unleashing upon the Tallarook skies ANNIE’S FIREWORKS SPECTACULAR, a display not seen since Moomba ’78. Curated and with buttons pushed by Jezza’s incredible mother Annie, the Sunday night sky will sparkle for many minutes, or at least as many as it will take to freak out every koala, kangaroo and fox within a 50km radius.
There are a few precious Boogie tickets left, so if you are procrastinating, this line-up of maestros will surely tip you over the line! But do hurry darlings, disappointment is very un-Boogie!
