Ramble Tamble - FSC

Creedence Clearwater Revival and their play list of hit songs have been born again in the body and soul of Melbourne five-piece band, Ramble Tamble –- The Australian Creedence Show.

Ramble Tamble’s attention to detail is outstanding and their passion for this music is inescapable. The hit songs of Creedence Clearwater Revival are as popular today as when they were first released. Songs like Proud Mary, Down on the Corner, Who’ll Stop the Rain and Green River populate the show like lifelong neighbours, old friends that you know so well, visitors that could never out-stay their welcome. Ramble Tamble are as close as you will ever get to seeing and hearing the real thing, live on stage. The authenticity of the performance and musical production has left audience members in awe with it being said that if you closed your eyes, you could be listening to the original band.
As the old saying goes; seeing is believing, so why not see for yourself, with the promise that once you have, as a CCR fan you will keep coming back, to satisfy that never ending thirst for a long, tall glass of CCR live, that only Ramble Tamble – The Australian Creedence Show can provide. A MUST SEE!

Nick Barker FSC

 

A star-studded local band featuring Nick Barker, Ashley Davies, Shane O’Mara, Justin Garner and Grant Cummerford are set to rock your world this New Years Eve!

This New Years Eve be treated to two big sets as Nick Barker & The Monkey Men perform The Rolling Stones’ Beggars Banquet in full followed by a set of Stones’ classics, some well-known and some more obscure, from the band’s golden age.

Recorded between March and July of 1968 at Olympic Sound Studios in London, mixed at Sunset Sound in Los Angeles, Beggars Banquet was the first Stones album produced by Jimmy Miller, and marks the start of what is considered their most prolific album era. It has a special place in the history of the band, as it is the final album completed with the original line up of Mick Jagger, Keith Richards, Brian Jones, Bill Wyman and Charlie Watts. Released in December 1968, Beggars Banquet is considered to be the first album in the band’s “staggering burst of creativity” over 1968–72 that ultimately comprised four of the best rock albums of all time.

The Stones forsook psychedelic experimentation to return to their blues roots on this celebrated album, which was immediately acclaimed as one of their landmark achievements. A strong acoustic Delta blues flavour colours much of the material, particularly “Salt of the Earth” and “No Expectations,” which features some beautiful slide guitar work. Basic rock & roll was not forgotten, however: “Street Fighting Man,” a reflection of the political turbulence of 1968, was one of their most innovative singles, and “Sympathy for the Devil,” with its fire-dancing guitar licks, leering Jagger vocals, African rhythms, and explicitly satanic lyrics, was an image-defining epic. On “Stray Cat Blues,” Jagger and crew began to explore the kind of decadent sexual sleaze that they would take to the point of self-parody by the mid-’70s. At the time, though, the approach was still fresh, and the lyrical bite of most of the material ensured Beggars Banquet‘s place as one of the top blues-based rock records of all time.

Nick Barker says: “Beggars Banquet is a crazy record, it makes no sense. Half of it sounds like it was recorded on a southern porch in between slugs of moonshine and the rest swirls around like an acid trip…. going from “Sympathy for the Devil” to ” Dear Doctor “?? Nuts… but it’s a bloody masterpiece and shows Mick and Keith at the beginning of their bizarre almost supernatural song writing purple patch that spawned 8 classic albums. We are stoked to celebrate its 50th birthday.   Hope we don’t blow it!!!”
