Proving again why it is regarded as one of the biggest and best music festivals on the globe, the line up for Glastonbury 2013 has delivered the goods once more. Confirming months of rumours and speculation, The Rolling Stones are set to headline the Saturday night slot at the festival, with the creme de la creme of popular music also set to grace the UK music gathering.
Just before he was taking the stage at his own show in New York, and a couple of days away from performing with the legendary The Rolling Stones, Larry Heath caught up with a man who's becoming a bit of a legend himself - Austin's Gary Clark Jr., who'll be returning to the country this January for the Big Day Out. They talk guitars, festivals, the Stones and much more...
Say what you will about The Rolling Stones, whether it's in criticism of the ridiculous prices they're charging for their shows in London and Newark or even just about the fact that four guys, all aged over 60 years old are still playing rock and roll together. The fact is, they have the goods to back the hype up. This is shown on GRRR!, yet another Rolling Stones greatest hits/best of compilation.
No matter what may happen on stage, there's always something happening behind the stage: we do that every week here on The State of Affairs. This week: Sam Sparro gives producers an opportunity to remix his music, an opportunity to educate yourself to get into DIY audience expansion, and a bunch of Australian artists grab a heap of grants to tour around Australia and provide workshops.

It’s fitting, that on their 50th Anniversary we take a look back over The Rolling Stones' monumental career, and see how they survived where others didn’t. The collection on display at Paddington’s Blender gallery does a great job, looking back at this apparently immortal band. Their earliest days, as clean-cut boys, are a familiar vision: on TV sets, under stage lights, in matching suits. 50 years on, this aesthetic looks almost comical compared to the wild, lascivious creatures they’d later become.
Another month has gone by so quickly and so much has happened in the last 30 days! What are those events exactly? Well... you’re about to find out…

Welcome to issue 14 of the AU review’s ARTS review, our weekly peek into what is going on in the world of Art and Film.

It seems to be the year of the reissue and deluxe albums doesn’t it?! Much like a swarm of other bands in recent months, Mick, Keef and co. have re-released what many consider the ‘last great album’ by The Rolling Stones. The Some Girls reissue comes with a second disc consisting entirely of tidied-up demos from the album’s original recording session back in 1977.
I feel a little background on the album is in order.
