The pop/punk/ cabaret dance band regularly headline at the Railway Club but this weekend they will be stepping out of their comfort zone to perfom at the alternative venue. Happy Yess manager Dan Davies said the band had never failed to get a crowd up and dancing. Most of the members have been playing around the traps for years in various formats and have come together in the Bloody Marys for a good time, he said. The Lookarounds will also perform at Happy Yess tonight. The Lookarounds are a project of Slim and Steve Holliday, sometimes containing past members of the Steve Holliday Alternative. When: Tomorrow, 9pm. Where: Happy Yess. Price: Entry $7. Musos showwrite stuff By CAINE EDWARDS ABOUT six months ago, a collective of passionate Darwin musicians decided it was time to bring the local original music scene to the people. From humble beginnings in August 2011, the team at Shamzine is gradually building a profile and will officially launch their music zine for 2012 tonight at Happy Yess. The brainchild of Will Morris, of Darwin stalwarts Burrfoot, Shamzine aims to give local musicians a voice and expose live original music to a wider Top End audience. Zac East, Shamzine reporter and frontman for local rockers The Wicked Garden, said the team was happy with the progress the free publi cation was making. The reach has been pretty good and obviously we want to continue that, he said. Were dropping it into places from Off Your Tree to Gloria Jeans and getting a lot of local support, which has been really good. And East, 25, said extending the reach in 2012 was on the agenda for the Shamzine team with plans to move into Alice Springs. East said the positive feedback from readers had given the volunteer editorial and publishing staff a real lift. It (Shamzine) has became more of a social and media presence in the Darwin music scene, he said. It was nice to know that what we were doing was start ing to make a difference and people were taking notice. The guitarist/vocalist gave his fellow Shamzine crew members a big rap and said their obvious passion for music and promoting local artists was at the heart of the publication. Were all very passionate and we dont get paid for it, so the cost usually comes out of our own pockets, he said. Join the crew at Happy Yess tonight and pick up the first edition of Shamzine for 2012. The launch party line-up includes Burrfoot, The Wicked Garden and relative newcomers, stoner rockers Mammoth Jesus. Shamzine launch at Happy Yess, tonight from 9pm. Tickets $10 at door. Rockhampton duo Busby Marou will be at the Darwin Railway Club for national SLAM Day next Thursday Busby clan to rock the land By CAINE EDWARDS ROCKHAMPTON duo Busby Marou is fast making a name as one of the hardest working live acts in the country. After a whirlwind 12 months, the pair will blow into Darwin and play at the Railway Club in Parap as part of their Save Some For the Others tour next Thursday. Friday Fix caught up with gifted instrumentalist Jeremy Marou during one of his fleeting visits to hometown Rocky. It feels a bit weird to be home these days, Marou, 29, said. Its been pretty crazy the last 12 months. Theres been a hell of a lot of flight time but its been fun touring the country. Backtrack to 2005 when Marou played in a covers band in Rockhampton and Tom Busby used to fill in the gaps between sets with his original material. When Marous band mates moved on to other things, the Busby Marou story had found its: Once upon a time. Enter Australian music heavyweight, Pete Murray, who is good mates with the Busby clan. Long story short, in 2006 they recorded EP, The Blue Road, at Murrays Byron Bay studios and he told them to keep in touch. He said to us: Let us know when youre ready and you can use the studio (to record an album), Marou said. And so they did. Last year, they released their self-titled debut album through Warner Music Australias indie imprint label Footstomp. Hes (Murray) sort of helped us out from the start we just did a national tour with him late last year, which was great for us, Marou said. Busby Marous Darwin gig coincides with national Save Live Australian Music Day, a cause close to Marous heart. I cant wait to get to Darwin and play live, he said. NOW SHOWING NOW SHOWING
