Rumours abound that some of the ex-Trio members are forming a new group.
Word is that the new band is likely to be centered around a guitar-playing Judy,
who will perhaps share the vocal splotlight with bass player and husband Liam.
Craig Morton, who had just joinned the Trio before it split, is touted
as a likely guitarist for the new group. No name has yet been suggested, and those
involoved will not confirm the rumours.
The Power Trio has officially disbanded. There are no hostilities - it is
just the right time for the band to acknowledge that their goals are not all the
same. This web site will remain in existence, and this info page will continue to
provide information about some local musicians.
Following their triumphant return to Melbourne venues, local popsters
Mack have decided to call it
quits. As there was only a single performance (the Thumpin' Tum, in May 1998)
of the band in its last incarnation, those who were present were treated to
a special and unique experience, witnessing Mark's debut as a lead singer!
Jim MacDonald and Ben Chessell have had a falling out and have not been
seen performing together for a while. Ben has been playing violin with Celtic
bands around town.
Hoopiron have split up. Rumour has it that the members
had different goals, and are setting off to pursue them. Details will be
provided for the related projects as they become known.
The Power Trio and Doomfingers ripped up the Empress Hotel
on July 9th 1996, despite numerous minor disasters, including faulty leads and a
serious case of the flu. A good crowd of people were present to witness the
Trio's return to the Empress, Doomfingers' last gig, and
Cam's departure from the Melbourne music scene. Rowdy cheers were
made, and train-ticket money raised! Mark is still recovering. Matt and
Ryan vow to return to the stage. And still Cam went to Queensland.
Acetylene is the new name for the band that once was known as
Anodyne. Catch up with them in venues around Melbourne!
