Turning Left + Black Rose
Turning Left | 7.30pm
A 3-piece blues/rock outfit from Perth WA, moulded from a diversity of backgrounds. Gordon German (guitar/vocals) has played in blues-based original and cover bands since the 1970’s, including Coldfront, Mirror Imij and the Woodstock Revival (Jimi Hendrix Experience). He is, naturally, left handed, and doesn’t like cauliflower. Steve Prescott (bass/vocals) has been a founding member in several of Perth’s big cover bands, such as Slim Jim and the Fatts, Fireball, and Croz and the Allstars. He is, naturally, also left handed and doesn’t like corriander. Dave Knox (drums) considers himself a galactic traveller and follower of Blue moons. He has made various loud noises with heavy rock outfits such as Subtruck, Mystic Twist and Volcanics. He is, rather unnaturally, right-handed.
Black Rose | 8.45pm
When they formed in the ‘70s, Thin Lizzy weren’t just another rock band. For starters, they were led by the late great Phillip Lynott, a charismatic Irishman of Caribbean heritage who was part poet, part hell-riser and all Rocker! Philo wrote his songs with fiery Celtic passion and provided each song with a deep lyrical content. For seconds, the band was a breeding ground for legendary guitar players from the blues mastery of both Eric Bell and Gary Moore, through the classic double lead harmony era of Scott Gorham & Brian Robertson to the blistering speed of John Sykes. Black Rose AU were formed in 2013 with a mission to bring Thin Lizzy’s incredible music to both existing fans as well as a new audience and to acknowledge Philo’s legacy. Playing timeless anthems including “Jailbreak”, “Chinatown”, Waiting For An Alibi” and, of course, the classic “Boys Are Back In Town”, it’s with love and respect that Black Rose AU pay tribute to one of the greatest rock bands of all time!
