On Saturday night at The Triffid in Brisbane, a little rare thing happened. Darren, JC and Hog played one of Powderfinger's old songs 'Up and Down and Back Again' as a thank you to all who supported them over the years. Hope you enjoy it.

Back in ’96, Powderfinger were on the 'Allergy Free' tour. Just before the last of three concerts at the Corner Hotel in Melbourne, Darren turned grey and had trouble breathing. His lung had collapsed. He was rushed to hospital. The ‘finger went on as a four piece. Were you in the packed house that night?

Hoggy’s mate Macca stepped up from guitar tech to fill in on guitar for the rest of the...

Did you tune in religiously to the ABC’s ‘Recovery’ program, and see Powderfinger making their television debut to perform 'Pick You Up'? ‘Recovery’ recently celebrated their 20th anniversary with a get-together of the original cast, and a CD/DVD release coming out soon. We can’t wait to take that walk down memory lane.

Bernard here. Just want to let you know my new single for ‘Reckless” is out now. Reckless looks at the idea of being hunted by your own thoughts. The act of willfully ignoring failures and wrongs of your own doing, and what the compounding consequences of that can be.
We made a video for the song on the beach, on a beautiful spring night. Check it out below……….
Also, my Civil Dusk tour...

The first time Powderfinger played Homebake in '96, it was affectionately known as ‘Mudbake’ thanks to the torrential rain that turned the moshpit into a mud pit at its original home in Belongil Fields, Byron Bay. Any clean people who walked through the crowd would be tackled by muddy people, just to share the dirty love. Were you amongst the great unwashed?

On 24 November 1996, Powderfinger helped their idols, Crowded House, farewell the world on the steps of the Sydney Opera House. The Brissie boys were first-on supports, flying in on a chartered plane to do the slot. It was their first taste of the big time, playing to more than 100,000 people.

The day was full of highs and lows—literally. After playing their set, Powderfinger jetted back to...

“If Powderfinger were a novel, they’d be ‘War and Peace’: epic and with an air of religious revelation about them.” – Andrew Stafford, Time Off, 18 September 1996.

By the time Andrew Stafford wrote this review of Powderfinger’s support gig for You Am I at Festival Hall, Brisbane, on 13 September 1996, the band had clocked up hundreds of gigs. Already a formidable force on the live circuit,...

On 7 September 1996, Powderfinger played an afternoon instore at the now defunct Brisbane institution, Skinny’s Music. Only 300 fans could score a ticket with an album purchase. The event was advertised in ‘Rave’ Magazine on August 28, 1996. Were you one of the lucky few?

On this day in 1996, five Brisbane boys released an album called 'Double Allergic'. Produced by Tim Whitten (The Go-Betweens, Hoodoo Gurus), the album was lauded for its simpler, more accessible rock tunes. It became the band's breakthrough, reaching triple platinum and placing Powderfinger on Australia's musical radar. Where were you when you first heard 'Pick You Up'? [ Youtube.com Link ]

Hi All, JC here.

I’m really excited that the Predators are making a long awaited return to the stage.

Hoggie and I are pumped about playing at The Triffid with some of our favourite bands for a celebration of Neil Young and his music.

The Predators will be joined by Halfway, Good Oak, Dana Gehrman & the Honey Sliders and Phil Smith & the Lights.

It would be great to see some familiar...

It’s Double Allergic’s 20th birthday this year, and to celebrate, we’re releasing a special limited edition vinyl run of the album! No doubt many of you will be taken back to 1996 as you slip the vinyl out of its sleeve and drop the needle down. The Double Allergic vinyl is available to pre-order right now. But be quick, there are only a limited number available.

Well look what we have here—a brand new Powderfinger website!

Now that we’re no longer an active band, we thought it was time to make a website that focussed on all the music we made together over the years. We like to think of it as a living, breathing museum to all things Powderfinger.

Have a look around. There are heaps of music videos and photos, as well as a full gig history and an...
