Big Scary in The Cross

Police patrol the streets as biker gangs and a crime king-pin ramble through Kings Cross last Friday night.

The same king-pin justified his presence with this comment in the newspaper the next day: "The Cross is in safe hands … It's disorganised crime that's the problem."

Scary stuff!

What wasn't scary was the band I reviewed in The Cross that night - Big Scary. With their impish grins they appear awfully approachable and as a two piece they aren't very big either! But their name isn't a complete misnomer; their sound is so big, board and lush - it’s spine tingling scary. Also on the bill were Mosman Alder (this week's Tunesday pick!) and Geoffrey O'Connor - a modern reincarnation of Spinal Tap

Check out my review to find out what zoolander would look like if he were in a band and why I feared I would pulled up by the police on patrol that night.  


  1. Thank you for commenting on my ENglish Muse post(The Great Indian Novels). :) YOu've travelled around India? Where all did you go? Are you planning on visiting again?

  2. Thanks for so many great book recommendations in your post! I've only read a handful of novels set in India (A Fine Balance, Shantaram, Life of Pi, The White Tiger) and I'm keen to read a few more!

    Last year I travelled from London to Sydney overland and was in India for a month. We travelled to Mumbai, Agra, Amritsar, Dharamsala, Delhi, Jaipur, Varanasi - yet there are so many more places I wish to see in India!! I hope to be back within the next 2years (I have plans for another world trip brewing away in the back of my mind!). Where would you recommend someone should visit??
