Grinspoon frontman Phil Jamieson and The Living End’s Chris Cheney will be joined by Kram from Spiderbait, Tim Rogers from You Am I and fellow rocker Tex Perkins for the tour, which will also feature a backing band of musos who have played with the likes of The Whitlams, Baby Animals and Divinyls.
The all-star band will perform songs from The Easybeats’ influential catalogue in Sydney, Brisbane, Melbourne and Thirroul this December on the ‘Easyfever Tour’, celebrating the ARIA Hall Of Fame-rs and their hits like ‘Friday On My Mind’, ‘Sorry’, ‘She’s So Fine’ and ‘Wedding Ring’.
“I adore The Easybeats,” says Phil Jamieson.
“The tunes, the look, the sound. It gets me. I’m equal parts nervous, excited and daunted by taking on these huge songs live. It is going to be one hell of a show.”
“The Australian rock’n’roll landscape would look very different without the contribution of the Easybeats,” says Chris Cheney.
“The energy and electricity of those old black and white TV performances have always been a source of Inspiration to me. I get goosebumps thinking about it.
“They are one of the most influential Aussie bands ever and rightly bloody so. The combined musical brilliance of that band and the songwriting skills means their tunes are absolutely timeless.”

Photos of Taylor Swift supposedly being carried out of her New York apartment in a large suitcase have caught the internet’s attention, but it’s pretty clear that the ‘Bad Blood’ singer probably isn’t pulling an Adele.
Yesterday, Slash News shared photos of the alleged Swift mobile suitcase, which was moved from her apartment into the trunk of a car, supposedly with a number of Swift’s security guards present.
Slash News alleged that Swift was being moved via suitcase to avoid unwanted media attention, but has since retracted its story after speaking with Swift’s management.
A representative from Slash has told Spin that the photographer who captured the suitcase photos was “not really a regular photographer that we use”, and had made the claim about Swift being inside the suitcase without verifying it.
“The report stated it as a fact, which we actually don’t know,” the representative said. “How could we?”
Despite the backdown from Slash, the internet still had a heap of fun with the possibility of a Swifty suitcase, including Father John Misty…
This isn’t the first time Swift’s fans have suggested that she could be travelling by suitcase. In May, celebrity pundit Perez Hilton wrote in a since-deleted tweet, “Fans are theorizing that she’s been sneaking in and out of her NYC apartment IN THIS BOX!!! Stealth!”
Sadly, though, it’s all just a bit of fun and that suitcase is probably filled with a whole lot of Blank Space.
Beer and music festivals have always gone hand-in-hand, literally, but it appears beer’s old adversary wine is making a strong comeback on the festival scene, with another new winery-based Aussie festival just announcing its debut lineup.
Grapevine will feature a bunch of instrumental and electronic acts, with the likes of Sydney band The Preatures, German producer Claptone and meme-kings Bag Raiders set to headline the Rochford Winery in the Yarra Valley.
Joining them on Saturday, 25th November will be Cub Sport, George Maple, Running Touch, Lovebirds, Nora En Pure and more.
There’ll be plenty of good grub available on the day too, with organisers spruiking wood-fired pizzas, gourmet burgers and other slow-cooked and smoked artisan foods.
Obviously, a vast array of wines will be in show as well, including a stack of wines grown and pressed on site, and to keep the beer lovers happy a selection of local craft brews will be available.
