Jackson Firebird (The Retreat, Brunswick, 7th June 2012)

A brilliant Brunswick venue plays host to two lads from Mildura who are on the up and up.If you didn’t catch Dale Hudak and Brendan Harvey – better known as the fine purveyors of garage awesomeness, Jackson Firebird - at the Retreat last night, all is not lost as you’ve got a couple more chances to see them in the next fortnight. They’re back at the same venue on Thursdays and are seriously worth the trip.

River of Snakes deliver a solid 40 minute opener before the madness of Jackson Firebird take over.

And take over they do. Live is what these guys are about – amazing energy dripping from their two man brand of self-described cock rock. Though in reality, this is anything but Nickelback. It’s raw, exciting, loud and vibrant. The crowd at the retreat are well up for this, and it’s one of the great album launches 2012 has seen from the Warner signed fellas.
