The hard-living Oz rockers have reformed their original line-up almost 20 years since the band was broken in half by the groups tempestuous frontman. Guitarist Brett Williams was fired and drummer Lindsay Tebbut walked out as the four founding members struggled to match their massive 80s hit Run To Paradise. When Brett and Lindsay left there was part of the Choirboys that died and never returned, so it feels inexplicably amazing to be back together after all these years, Gable said. The Choirboys begin a national tour this month. 0 6 0 6 0 4 / 1 0 Sunday 8th August Mindil Beach Starts approx 10am Best Beer Can Boat Boat Best Soft Drink Boat Sand Castle Tug of War Henley on Mindil Battle of Mindil and more MINDIL MARKETS TRADING ALL DAY Presentations approx 5pm Entry by Gold Coin Donation Proceeds to Somerville HACC NO ALCOHOL ADMITTED NO MOTORISED VEHICLES ON BEACH NO GLASS e r0 6 0 6 0 9 e r0 6 0 6 0 6 e r0 6 0 6 1 3 105.7 ABC DARWIN SATURDAY: 5.00 Tales from the Tinny 7.00 Breaky with Richard 8.00 AM 8.30 Breaky cont incl Top End Gardener 11.05 Terr Grandstand with Charlie King 12.35 AFL: Pre-match (Incl Territory Thunder vs Aspley Hornets) 1.40 AFL: Sydney vs Hawthorn 5.35 Saturday Night Spin 6.00 AFL: Geelong vs Collingwood 10.00 Saturday Night Country.

Rusty ready to dig Dirt By VICKY ROACH in Melbourne RUSSELL Crowe is set to appear in his first Australian feature in more than a decade. The Oscar-winning actor will play the role of bereaved West Australian fisherman Luther Fox in the film adaptation of Tim Wintons novel Dirt Music, director Phillip Noyce confirmed this week. When is another matter, he said. We are still working on the script. Crowes track record when it comes to homegrown productions is rather patchy. Creative disagreements with director Joceyln Moorhouse effectively scuttled Eucalyptus, the big-budget adaptation of Murray Bails novel in which he was to have co-starred with Nicole Kidman, days before it was due to go into production. A clash of egos also saw Crowe (pictured) part ways with Baz Luhrmann during the early days of Australia. But Noyce said he wasnt anticipating any insurmountable obstacles on the set of Dirt Music. I like opinionated people. He did, however, acknow ledge that Crowes co-star had yet to be cast. Noyce, in town to promote the Angelina Jolie spy thriller Salt, described Dirt Music as an elusive project script wise, actor wise, finance wise. It was initially envisaged as his follow-up project to The Quiet American (2002), with Michael Caine and Brendan Fraser. Heath Ledger had been cast in the Russell Crowe role.
