The land falls silent: Australian farmers battle life without rain. It as the drought stricken summer of 2018. Australia. The farmers were on their knees. It was the moment the Federal Government had to seize, but in Canberra the Federal Government was too occupied with leadership challenges, white-anting and deliberately eroding their internal foundation. They were blinded by their treachery to the heart wrenching, devastating scenes of Australian farmers, who were looking toward their elected leaders for help. But all they saw were dirty games.

Southport Surf Life Savers Club-CANCELLED COVID-19

We’re disappointed to report this show has been cancelled due to the difficulties in compliance to COVID 19 restrictions. We’ll keep you posted.

DO YOU KNOW THE HISTORY BEHIND HOW SOUTH PORT GOT ITS NAME?

South Port SLSC

It goes something like……. when there was a breakaway group formed from Port Noarlunga SLSC to start up the club in the late 1950’s, Geoff Price, one of South Port’s founding members, thought the suburb was named “South Port Noarlunga” instead of Port Noarlunga South.

It was felt that was too long a name and the catalyst for change was when Geoff went to the Aussie Titles in Scarborough WA around 1958 and he noticed that the Club used “Scarboro” to shorten their name.

As a result, when Geoff got back, he put it to the members that “South Port” would be a better fit and not as long as the suburb name that he had originally thought was South Port Noarlunga anyway!

And this is how South Port SLSC got its name.

MOSS Keyboard, guitarist and vocalist Ian (NED) Kelly recalls a time in his younger years when he travelled through the French Riviera. It’s a region many say dreams are made of and NED has never forgotten his time there. This song is a reasonable departure from our existing playlist but it is reflective of our collective past experiences over time that often demanded versatility. MOSS Drummer Dave Anthony loves this song as it gives him opportunity to revisit his Latin genre roots. All in all, we have had a bucket load of fun writing this song, recording it and making the film clip. Our sincere hope is that you are a music lover of this genre and add it to your collection to play when you next visit the French Riviera or for the interim simply want to dream about being there.

ROCK RESCUE – THE STORY

You twist and turn your way through the thrum of the crowds and wriggle into your place among the sea of concert goers. Not quite in the zone; with lingering thoughts of your troubles and tensions of the day, the week, the year or even a lifetime. You scan unfamiliar faces and anticipate the arrival those faces you’ve come to know on stage. Then, just one smack of the drum, one blistering rebellious sound of the guitar, one candescent explosion on the stage and you’re rescued . . . rescued from everything that was a moment ago in just a split second. Unbridled, amplified rock. More than music; it’s an attitude with a wicked grin making you feel awesome, making you feel safe; like the sounds of a siren coming to your rescue, you know everything’s going to be OK. A big shout out to all those rock bands who blasted their way into our lives and hearts and make us feel great. This one is for you guys. Thaaankkkyoooo.

We saw the parallel between Greta Thunberg and Astrid Lindgren’s character; Pippi Longstocking as we witnessed global leaders unable to debate Greta on the issue she presented, rather they lowered themselves to bully her by focusing their inept rebuke on her physical appearance and personal attributes. Like Pippi, Greta very ably put the bullies in the trees.
