Arts Review: Lynch by Night - GOMA, Brisbane (22.05.15)

Lynch’s art exhibition isn’t just a space, it forces you to step into a different dimension. When the after-hours exhibition is titled Between Two Worlds it’s not difficult to start wondering what those two worlds are. the AU review’s interpretation is our world, Earth, now, Brisbane, GOMA; whatever you would like to call it. And then there’s the second world – Lynch’s world. This is a dark place filled with flashes of anger and sparks of fear. There’s a sickening paranoia that envelopes the space. And though Lynch claims since taking up meditation long ago that he no longer feels the flashes of anger his art represents, there’s a remaining imprint that echoes from his artworks...

Live Review: John Mayall - Brisbane Powerhouse (05.04.15)

The list of highlights and accomplishments in John Mayall’s career reads like a who’s-who guide to contemporary blues and rock music. The 81 year-old has not only released over 60 albums, but his band the Bluesbreakers became the vehicle which introduced one or two talented folk to the public sphere for the first time: Eric Clapton, Mick Taylor, Peter Green, Jack Bruce, Mick Fleetwood and the recently-deceased Andy Fraser, to name a few. To say the Englishman has had a bit of a part to play in the many twisting paths of contemporary music is a laughable understatement: the guy is simply, a living legend.

Photo Gallery: John Mayall - Brisbane Powerhouse (05.04.15)

Blues legend John Mayall is in the country for Bluesfest. Rhys Herriott went along to his sideshow at the Brisbane Powerhouse to bring you these photos.
