News : The Push Player - NEW! Resource for Musicians

melza writes"What is The Push Player?


The aim of The Push Player is to provide you with accurate, precise and read-able information that will assist your band achieve all that it can be. Here you will read articles about songwriting, touring and self-promotion as well as heavier issues like publishing, royalties and copyright law. There are plans to hold a couple of events in November (2007) with a particular focus on an artist-related issue. Stay tuned for more on this in the coming updates ...

How can The Push Player help my band?


The aim of The Push Player is to provide you a platform to equip yourselves with the knowledge that will better prepare you for the road ahead in a free, accessible, contactable and a ‘face-full’ (as opposed to face-less!!) organisation – The Push. If you are keen to progress your band, start a band, resolve issues within your band, find some resources etc etc … we hope to have some answers for you here (or in the coming months).


Who is The Push Player?

The Push Player is researched, authored and updated by Andrew Kitchen - the Artist Development Project Coordinator for The Push. Andrew is also the lead singer / songwriter for Antiskeptic (Melbourne-based rock band) and is embarrassed to be typing about himself in the third-person. Third person aside!! I’ve done some hard kilometres on the road, developed a band from the ground up and had a lot of fun in the process. I thought it about time I shared from some of my own experience, but not only that – I thought I’d also do some reading, writing and interviewing for you and come back with some gems of wisdom.


What can we expect from The Push Player?

The page is going to be updated once at the start of every month with new articles, interviews, photos and editorials. The Regular sections will be:

TAKE A CLOSER LOOK - This focuses on a particular artist related issue and explores it for you, making sense of something confusing (hopefully not vice-versa!!)
FRONT AND CENTER - This is an interview with an artist that you would have heard of about what brought their success and the lessons that they learnt along the way.
SHOW US YOUR WARES - This is a section to expose bands that you may not have heard of yet, to give you an insight into the way they run their band and what they are aiming at. There will be 2 installments of 'SHOW US YOUR WARES' with each update of The Push Player.
BEHIND THE CURTAIN - This section is where we are going to pick the brains of a professional currently working in the industry, relevant to the topic covered in the 'TAKE A CLOSER LOOK' section.
IN SHOT - This section will look at band photography - including live and studio shoots, to shooting behind-the-scenes video footage as well as shooting professional video clips.
FEEDBACK - We would like to hear from you as to whether you found the page helpful or informative and if there are any issues that you would like The Push Player to explore in future updates.

Also - this page is unapologetically crafted for developing musicians (and let’s face it – we’re always developing) and the site won’t include cd reviews or a gig guide or a forum or anything like that. The aim is to get ‘behind-the-scenes’ type interviews from industry professionals who want to let you in on the secrets that got them where they are!!

One last thing - The Push Player will not be a place for me to ‘rant and rave’ and use sentences starting with ‘I reckon …’ if you were worried about that. I am going to attempt to keep this place as opinion-free as possible and keep it to the facts.


Is The Push Player just for beginner musicians?

No it is not. The content will be sound, well-researched, objective and professional in its' music industry content. Some articles might be geared to band’s establishing themselves, but hopefully all of the articles will have ‘something for everyone.’


Can I make a contribution or suggestion to The Push Player?

Yes, yes, yes. I’d love to hear from you with suggestions for subjects that I could investigate for you. Or if you felt up to it, do your reading, write a piece and submit your findings for the benefit of other readers.

Check out the Push Player @ www.thepush.asn and follow the 'artist' link to the front page

News : Re-Mains tour cancelled after car accident

dirtmusic writes"The Re-Mains ‘Ghan Out West’ Tour Cancelled


The Re-Mains "Ghan Out West" tour through NT, WA and SA has been cancelled after their van hit a cow outside of Tennant Creek. The banjo-slinging bush-rock outfit described by Melbourne’s Age as “ … the finest country rock band in Australia” were at the beginning of their biggest ever, transcontinental Australian tour when the accident happened Two of the band members - Grant and Dave - were airlifted from the scene to Alice Springs Hospital and are both recovering after emergency surgery. Mick, Tom and Phil were relatively uninjured. Their van was written off.
The band was heading up to Darwin for their first gig of the tour but was abruptly stopped by the wayward cow. The impact of the collision caused the front seat passengers to suffer broken legs and internal injuries but left the other band members relatively unscathed. On returning to the scene of the accident the next day, lead singer Mick Daley was stunned by what appeared to be sheer luck: “After the impact the van veered through a narrow passage between two stacks of boulders. If we’d hit the rocks, we’d all be dead. No question about it. We are so lucky to be alive.”

With the benefit of a generous Australia Council Touring Grant, The Re-Mains were taking the “Ghan Out West” tour across five states, from the Top End of NT, WA, and the Bottom End - the rest of WA, Perth, Adelaide, SA, and back home via Broken Hill and Bourke. They will re-schedule all dates later in the year / early 2008.
