Ex-Jam frontman and songwriter Paul Weller made a long time coming trip Australia to promote his quite brilliant 22 Dreams album, and chose the perfect surrounds of Melbourne’s Forum Theatre to start the first of two nights in town.

Professor Satchafunkilus brought his bald head, fast fingers and sunglasses to the brilliant Forum Theatre in Melbourne on the 11th July. Did I expect guitar aerobics? Well, not entirely. But I did see 2 shows. One of them awful, one of them good. Both of them by Joe Satriani…

Funny name for a band made up of a couple of Scousers and a Norwegian, but they put on a short high energy show at the Hi Fi Bar in the middle of Melbourne on a cold night in winter.

10 willing participants on stage. 1500 in the audience. It all adds up to one of the most amazing gigs we’re likely to see this year and beyond. The Canadian masters of organised mayhem put on a show that would blow everyone away.
