Thirsty Merc

After over a decade of making music, they’re still as thirsty as ever.

They’ve released an indie EP, which garnered triple J airplay back in 2003, three critically acclaimed studio albums, an acoustic fan favourites record entitled ‘AAA: Acoustic Anniversary Album’ and a swag of classic tracks such as “20 Good Reasons”, “Emancipate Myself”, “Someday Someday”, “Mousetrap Heart” and “In The Summertime.” Australian rock stalwarts Thirsty Merc are still excited to be making music, and hungrier than ever before to extend their legacy.

Vocalist and songwriter Rai Thistlethwayte says, “We’ve haven’t really stopped since 2002, and being around for over a decade, we’ve got lots more experience than when we started. We’ve also got still got loads of energy, and we want to harness that energy to work hard, around the clock, to continue touring and making good music.”

The band is ensuring they return to the rock roots they unleashed on their first record. “A really important element for us is going into the same headspace of where it all began, and we’re lucky enough to be working with the producer who helmed our first album, Lindsay Gravina.”

Thistlethwayte's ready to flex his songwriting muscles on the forthcoming record, and this time round, he says, his songs are “exploring life on the road, emotional honesty and about my reconciliation with the concept of love, which a very complex thing. I’ve written a lot of straight up love songs, and to be honest, I’m ready to wear my heart on my sleeve a lot more than I have on previous records.”

“We really want to tour this album to as many of our fans as we possibly can. We want to tour rural areas just as much as the regional and metropolitan areas. We want to have a solid playlist of songs, and our new album is a way of adding a strong new body of work to our existing catalogue.”

Humble, yet with a wealth of experience in the industry Andrew is a seasoned performer. Opening for mega stars like Mariah Carey (Etihad Stadium 2013) Boys II men (2012) and for Shaggy –during his National tour (2015). Andrew’s versatility has recently seen him play the lead role in the hit production “Let’s Get It On” (The Life & Music Of Marvin Gaye)

“It’s a deliciously lithe soul number, whelmed by Andrew’s superb vocal that taps the falsetto in his bag of tricks and the layering of the vocals is pretty sublime.”

Andrew seems to have done it all and Purple Revolution is by far one not to be missed.

The Angels

4x4 Across Australia Tour
Buy Tickets Online


Legendary Aussie rock band The Angels are gearing up for a tour guaranteed to smash the speakers and get venues rockin’. Announcing their 2017 4x4 Across Australia tour, the band will be digging through their back catalogue to pick some of their biggest hits for the special run of shows, which kick off in March. The 4x4 concept will see the band hand-picking four of their most iconic records, and playing, back-to-back, four hits from each record. Add to that an encore that will feature a swag of more classic tracks, and 4x4 will be a tour to go down in Aussie rock history.

For rhythm guitarist John Brewster, the 4x4 concept is about exploring more than four decades of great rock songs from the band’s archives. “Each of our albums have a distinct sound and atmosphere that differs from the others,” he says. “It’s great to enter and embrace the feeling of these albums. We always like to have an angle that works for the fans and the band too.”

Lead guitarist Rick Brewster says while there will be a certain number of planned songs for each show, some tracks will be decided on the night. “There will be no two nights that are the same,” he says. “The old rule will apply; something old, something new, and something blue.”

The 4x4 tour gives us an opportunity to add some rarities.” Including a special hit-packed encore in the show was a given. There are classic songs that won’t be part of the 4x4 song selection that audiences will want to hear, so the band thought wrapping up the show with these timepieces was a perfect end to the concert. “Can’t Shake It is a great song for the encore,” says John. “It gives the band a chance to stretch out. There’ll be a couple of surprises in the encore too.”

The Angels have once again cemented themselves as legends on the Aussie music scene. With new songs and their classic back catalogue of tracks such as Am I Ever Gonna See Your Face Again, No Secrets, Face The Day, Take A Long Line, Marseilles and Shadowboxer to name a few, they are revered for their live shows and are playing better than ever!
