Ipswich 16/2/19


Dont know where to start. I went to the hotter than hell show at Ipswich with my daughter and her partner on saturday 16/2/19,and it was fantastic. Not only was it the first time I got to see the band live but it was the best mix up of tunes and so well played.I only went to see M D and as we where leaving Adalita And Adam were at the exit gate,what a way to top a great day.photos with these two legends and a brief but memorable convo. Thanks Magicdirt you have made my year. Al.

Re: Ipswich 16/2/19


I told a mate on another forum about the show at Ipswich and he shared a memory of his as follows.
  
    But the first time I ever saw 'Lita was at (I think) Dom McAlinden's parents place out at Waurn Ponds on a warm summers eve, just a group of people round a 44 gallon fire drum,drinking and speaking lots of shyte with the occasional instrument appearing and a song wailed into the night
Dom was/is a fantastic drummer, Dean was there and they were kicking around the idea of starting to perform as Deer (something) .....bubbles(?) with just her and Dean ... I seem to remember back then she was a shy lanky chick emoticon
I guess she would have been no more than 18 or 19 and had an awesome mix of shy but confident young Croatian first gen with the passion of a young woman who knew she had "it" lol emoticon
I remember being really attracted to that and at the same time a little in awe ... she had a voice that was really hard to describe, it wasnt "great" by any stretch but it had smouldering passion, I am not sure if she sang it that night, but maybe, "Heroin" covered from The Velvet Underground ... I know that it was her and Deans first recording on a Geelong based Indy album in 1992 under "The JimJims" I used to have it but its been lost in the nearly 30 years since lol .. put out by Destroyer records I think and had a tonne of underground Geelong/Melb bands as a compilation it was titled "Check this out" ...Dave Thomas ( Bored!) was their key into it I think and got them into the studio for it . Or coulda been Brian Daniels ( now known as Eddie Baroo) who went on to form Buggertoe records and release a few like CD's in the early 90's
