October 15 – Playing the Impact Events Buskers Stage with Dylan Beast at 2.30pm as part of the Spring Fling Street Festival 2017. This is the 40th anniversary of the event and promises to be a great day out. I’m told that we’ll be right next to the Town Hall Hotel, so a perfect spot for people to have a cold one and take in some tunes!!

October 28 – playing with my mates in Cunning Stunts at the Republic Bar & Cafe in Hobart again paying tribute to Metallica.

From last nights gig at Edwards Place….

Edwards_Place_Oct_2013Had a great time last night for my first solo gig in a while at Edwards Place in Reservoir, in Melbourne’s northern suburbs. I do wonder if I jinxed it by making a few too many “Northern Suburbs Jokes” in regards to a lot of crime happening in the area in recent years though as a rock broke the window of the train I rode to get there last night!!! That shit sure wakes you up!!

Setlist was a mixture of solo and Feckers songs, and looked like this:

Here is some video of me singing “Slackers and Wankers” – funny how well this one always goes down as it’s the one with the most swearing in it!!


Update – November 9, 2009!!!

Chris live - October 31, 2009!!

Hey all,

Been NUTS busy – haven’t had a chance to update this thing in a while!! Am taking a break here cramming on songs to write an update on everything that’s happened over the last little bit, so here goes!!


Over the last couple of weeks I found myself on the stage for the first time in 3 years!!! Very cool to be back I have to say!!!

First up I did The Roarhouse @ The Espy Basement Bar on October 21st. Hadn’t attended one of these before so I wasn’t sure what to expect!! Ended up being a real fun night though and met some great folks there!! Played this one solo, and included the songs “(I Can’t) Start Again”, “October 22”, and “Soundtrack”, all from my recently released album “Pieces of Eternity”!!

Next up, I was playing guitar in an acoustic trio version of Liminal on October 31st, as part of the Halloween Showcase Of Death, put on by the good folks at http://www.thataudioguy.net/, which was live streamed on the internet via their site, and also several community radio stations!!

The guys were all fantastic to work with, and got to see some great acts after our set as well. Played a handful of Liminal songs, a cover of “Total Control”, and also the live debut of “Lost Soul” which is from my solo album also!! We look forward to hopefully being part of more of these events in the future.

The following gigs are still to come this year with more being worked on behind the scenes: November 13th @ The OC, Fitzroy, with Problem, and Josh Murphy’s Filthy Soup, and November 30th with Hurb Jephasun and Corinna Jane @ The Good Folk Club, Brunswick Hotel, Brunswick!!

NOTE: The OC gig is with Liminal, and the Good Folk Club is as guest guitarist!!


Been recording for The Feckers at Melbourne Records for the last few months, and in the downtime for that I decided to start nailing some of the acoustic tracks I have had laying around for quite a while now. It may end up an album, they may end up a couple of EP’s, or possibly extra tracks. I’m as yet undecided on that, but have 8 songs done musically and it’s coming along nicely!! More info as it happens!!


Is slowly taking over the world!! Haha!!

Getting my music into some cool countries I never thought I’d ever have anything to do with – Germany, Italy, USA, UK to name a few – everyone’s support is much appreciated!!! Had some cool support from the folks at 3cr Radio here in Melbourne, and currently talking about some more!! Anyone out there that thinks my music may suit your format, definitely get in touch!!

And on that note, I think that is it!!
