THE COOLEST SONG IN THE WORLD (this week, anyway)

There's been a sequel to our recent encounter with Little Steven (Steve Van Zandt). As I wrote in an earlier post, he got up onstage and jammed with us at our Melbourne Zoo show recently.

Steve has his own radio channel on Sirius XFM, the satellite radio network that is enormous in the U.S. Little Steven's Underground Garage is required...

We had a special guest on Friday night at our Melbourne Zoo Twilight Concert: none other than "Little Steven"/Steven Van Zandt from The E Street Band. Steve had a night off between shows with his boss, "The Boss". Rather than have a well-earned relax he came down to check out our show on his rest day, turning up halfway through our first song. What a legend! I have to admit I was a little bit...

Here's a cute article from the very-hip L.A. Weekly about that much-scorned decade, the '80s. They had some nice things to say about us on the top of page 2.

I took this photo a few minutes ago from the garden of my B&B accom. in Rifle Range Rd, Currie (thanks for your hospitality, Megan & Richard). Btw, if you want to book their house (or a room in their house) on Air BnB it's called Sou'wester (link: [ Airbnb.com.au Link ] It's a beautiful modern home with killer views, as you can tell. Just a short stroll to the...

...and we're swinging back into action. In a week's time we're playing a twilight concert at the Melbourne Zoo. That sold out months ago but Kylie Qa posted here yesterday looking to buy a couple of tickets so if you have a couple spare, send her a message.

We're playing another show in Victoria, at Echuca, in a few weeks time. It's a three-day...

SEE YA, 2016!

This has been a crappy year in many ways but there have been some things worth celebrating too. The detection of gravity waves this year after decades of searching was an incredible achievement.

There are a few other success stories here to gladden the heart.

ROLL ON 2017!

Yeah, there are quite a few things about 2016 I want to forget but one definite highlight I will always remember fondly is our A Day On The Green tour in March with the VIOLENT FEMMES.

We have a lot of shared history, actually. Both our debut albums came out around the same time and we were on the same record label in Australia (their U.S. label had a distribution deal through...

Yes, HOODOO GURUS are playing next Sunday (6 NOV.) for FREE, outside the Bondi Pavilion, Bondi Beach. The concert is to raise awareness for the SAVE BONDI PAVILION campaign. The Waverley Council intends to turn the first floor of the pavilion into an exclusive restaurant, which will be a licence to print money for someone yet to be revealed (though I suspect that vendor is...

Someone took these photo's of our encore last Friday night. Paul Gallen, captain of the Cronulla Sharks, the 2016 NRL Premiers (it feels good to write that), got up on stage with us with the trophy while we sang a rocking' version of 'Up, Up Cronulla', the club's theme song. We did three verses (well, the same verse sung twice, with an instrumental verse in the middle) and I...

Well, it's been a week now since the Sharks won their first rugby league premiership trophy. I was at the stadium to witness the event in person and afterwards I made a beeline for the Cronulla Leagues Club to continue the celebration. Congratulations to the club's many devoted supporters and, more importantly, to the players and staff of the Sharks Rugby League Club. You did yourselves and...

We have another couple of shows coming up soon.

On Friday 14 October we are playing at the Cronulla Leagues Club and this will be the last concert to be held in the old auditorium. This summer the entire building will be demolished, to be replaced by a brand new facility by the end of next year. The Hoodoo Gurus have a long history with this club and this stage - we've played there a few...
