They departed Darwin for NSWs sunny Northern Rivers in mid-January to spend time at Byrons Studio 301. Frontman Jack Tinapple, also of The Jigsaw Collective, said the experience was just awesome and hugely productive. We achieved more than we ever thought we were going to, he said. Tinapple said the band laid down all the vocal, bass, drum and guitar tracks, with only a few guitar over-dubs and the horn tracks remaining. Because they had three separate rooms, we were putting down three-part harmonies on the fly, he said. The band will fly Studio 301s producer Paul Pilsneniks to the Top End to complete the recording. Pilsneniks has worked with some industry heavyweights, including, Silverchair, Alanis Morissette, The Mars Volta and The Living End. At the gig at the Railway Club on Saturday night, fans of the high-energy gypsy/funk outfit will be treated to material not heard before by Territorians, Tinapple said if they can get in. The last time the band played the venue it had to turn people away in droves. Tinapple said $10 advanced ticket sales were available now up until show time, except for tomorrow when the venue is closed. The Neo @ Darwin Railway Club tickets are $10 for members and bona-fide guests only. Turning rock into superclub By CAINE EDWARDS Sarah McLeod is set to hit the stage at Darwins Mitchell St nightclub HP Underground ONCE described as Australias quintessential rock chick, Sarah McLeod is now one of the hottest properties on the club scene. Tonight, McLeod hits the stage at Mitchell St nightclub HP Underground and says she loves coming back to Darwin. Her former boyfriend Dave the fisherman still lives up here and McLeod is looking forward to catching up while she enjoys her stay in Darwin. Were still really good friends, she said. My mum calls him Hunting Dave. McLeod is a former member of Aussie rockers The Superjesus and started her solo career when the band split in 2004 after 10 years together. In 2005, she released her debut solo album, Beauty Was a Tiger and the first single He Doesnt Love You wound up being a life-changing composition for McLeod. The track was later picked up by Sydney DJ/producer Hook N Sling. The remix went to No.1 on the ARIA Dance Charts and spent 40 weeks in the top spot in Eastern Europe. McLeod was shocked. I literally fell into the club scene, she said. I didnt really have to do anything in the beginning. McLeod has returned to Australia after spending three years travelling between London and the US. During this time shes enjoyed more success and had her releases supported by big names including Fedde Le Grand, Deep Dish, TV Rock and DJ Tiesto. Shes also started taking an active role in the production of her remixed tracks. Getting involved in the creative process allowed me to feel more connected to the song, she says. And she says now singing them live has taken that connection to a new level. It turns out that McLeod hasnt turned her back on the rock scene either. She says she misses rock and is in the process of rounding up some musos to re-ignite her passion and fire up the young ones. Maybe I can get in with the Generation Ys in the dance scene and then say, hey, come on guys, I can rock too, she says. McLeod performs to0night at the HP Underground. Dinner has charity vision THE first OneSight Corporate Charity Dinner on Thursday April 7 has been hailed a success. Although a relatively modest 60 guests turned out to the event at Hot Rock Restaurant, $12,000 was raised on the night. Real estate agent David Oliver surrendered a pretty penny to become the owner of a 2011 autographed Collingwood jersey. Organiser Stephanie Bahler enjoyed the success of the night and thanked the many sponsors. We hope to do another OneSight Corporate Charity Dinner next year, when it will be bigger and better, she said. The event is held in aid of OneSights mission to help restore and maintain better vision for people who dont have access to adequate care. Bewitched creator dies LOS ANGELES: Screenwriter Sol Saks, who created iconic TV show Bewitched, has died at the age of 100. The TV producer, who died in Los Angeles on Saturday, came up with the idea of a nose-twitching witch who marries a mortal for the pilot episode of Bewitched. Elizabeth Montgomery (pictured) played the lead role of Samantha until the show ended in 1972, and it was later revamped into a movie starring Nicole Kidman in 2005. Saks also wrote a series of radio comedies and TV shows. Additionally, he wrote the screenplay for the 1966 comedy Walk Dont Run, starring Cary Grant.
