    RATM are coming

    Gene Cafe Coffee Roaster $850 - Free Beans Free Freight
    Hi all,

    Dont know how many people here would listen to them, or heard of them, but Rage Against the Machine are my favourite band. They broke up seven years ago and only ever came to AUS once, which was a one concert show in WA for a BDO i think, but they reformed to play one show in the usa and now there right back into it and have set dates for Sydney and Melbourne which is good for all there fans who thought they would never get to see them.

    Hopefully they do a gig in QLD other than the big day out cause around the time their tour is planned I should have a 2 week old baby which cancells a full day away completely but I could manage a couple of hours at night (fingers tightly crossed).

    Re: RATM are coming

    Hi Andrew,

    Not many RATM fans on this site, it appears. If you were taking a sneaky poll on average age group of CSers, I think you got your answer.

    Yes, RATM are an awsome band. My 18 yr old son is as exited as you about them coming out. I tipped him onto them about 6-7 yrs ago (part of my contribution to his musical education).

    I was around as a kid (a very young kid, thank you) to catch the end of the golden age of rock (mid 60s to early 70s). Then the late 70s and 80s was a very lean period. Thankfully, the early 90s renewed my faith, with an explosion of great bands and music (eg. Pearl Jam, Nirvana, Smashing Pumpkins, Chilli Peppers, Tool, Radiohead and, of course, RATM, etc). We get pumped up when Tool and PJ come out, but this is something different as RATM have not really been before (and we thought never would).

    So, hope you get to see them (they will probably turn up at the BDOs) and enjoy.

    By the way, making any good coffee? (Thought Id add that as this IS Coffee Snobs.) :)

    Greg.

    Hi greg

    Getting there with the coffee got a new machine so figureing it out.

    Yes it will be a good show there arent to many bands that have a stage presence like they do every concert gets reviewed as explosive your son will enjoy it.

    When my son was born (hes 15 mnths now) I put on a Rage dvd to get him to sleep or when he was upset in the car on with a cd to quit him down, hell be a fan for sure.

    Hopefully I do get to se them somehow because I dont think ill get another chance.

    Please RATM do a seperate Brisbane show id even give up coffee to see you. (just in case their snobs too)

    Andrew

    Didnt RATM play at a Big Day Out a few years back? I seem to recall watching them with a skate ramp nearby, but I could be imagining it.

    Ohhh.. off-topic in the off topic thread (naughty Andy), please be kind moderators.

    Answer from me is yes Nunu. I bought tickets in the presale. The whole floor and the gold section sold out in 1 minute and the only pair of tickets I could get were "silver" S2 row C which is dead in front (nice score).

    A mate and I went and saw Bruce and the boys about 22 odd years ago at Festival Hall and it was a blast. (still spooks me to have 20+ year old memories, made worse when the venue doesnt exist anymore) :-[

    ...which is also why I didnt know about RATM playing. ;)

    yeah, they played BDO in 1996. I thought it was the same year as Porno for Pyros but wasnt sure yesterday, checking BDOs past lineups made it easy.

    I think Ill be going to the Sydney show.

    I saw them in 1996 and they were fantastic. Can;t afford it this year, those of you going - enjoy yourselves.

    Andy, I know how you feel. Jas looked at me in horror when she went to see U2 and I told her I saw them about 20+ years ago.

    I would like to go and see Alice Cooper again - havent seen him for about 20 odd years. I may take OG who has never seen him live.

    Aaaahhhhh.....Those were the days. Back when tickets could be had for prices in the single digits with a party every night and a concert every week-end! WooHoo!! [smiley=2vrolijk_08.gif]

    Re: RATM are coming

    Hey Sarg,

    My son got tickets to RATM. Very lucky, they sold out in the blink of an eye. Very stoked.
    Keep an on BDO. Could be a ripper, with Rage here as well as Kings of Leon, Powderfinger and Silverchair and, wait for it, Smashing Pumpkins. ;) I will definitely be there.

    For you reminiscers, did anyone see Springsteen in about 1985 - best Ive ever seen -IMHO- (and Ive seen a few). Saw Dylan just recently - did not disappoint, hes a living legend. 8-)
    Although best gigs for me this year have been Tool and Damien Rice.

    I saw him back in the early 80s and again in 2004. Excellent show both times! :)

    Dylan has been awesome every time Ive seen him! A legend indeed!

    As a side note Australian Pink Floyd is coming to an auditorium here in October. Compared to other concerts at $USD47.50 for a ticket its a cheap show.

    Re: RATM are coming

    I saw Alice a quite a few years ago in Sydney and he was great.

    Not too many years ago I saw Dylan, also in Sydney. Awsome.

    I notice latelyy that my favourite Sydney radio stationare promoting "The Angels" as part of their "Rocktober" concert this year.

    A school friend of mine puts on a gathering every Otober weekend (this weekend non-NSW people) and this year his main act is none other than The Angels.

    A few years ago he had one of the Eagles at his place before they started their Autralian tour.

    Unfortunately Im not going this year, but I will be not too far away in the Hunter valley, wine tasting.

    Greg, I think your son is very lucky, 2 minutes and both sydney and melbourne sold out. They spoke to a guy on jjj today and he was 10th in line and didnt even get any the guy in fourth spot was the last (nearly as frantic as Bean Bay).

    I just hope the majority wasnt to bloody scalpers.

    Unfortunately spot-on Andrew - frikkin scalpers:

    http://www.brisbanetimes.com.au/news/technology/fans-rage-against-the-scalpers/2007/09/28/1190486542147.html

    Looks like BDOs on the cards.

    Seeing we (relatively) old fogies are reminiscing, one of my personal faves was/is The Cruel Sea. Anyone Brizzy based remember Toxic Garden Gnomes in the early 90s?

    Yep, Toxic Garden Gnomes rings a bell. How about Victims of Noah?

    I was a 4ZZZ announcer in the early 90s. Saw grunge established as mainstream. That was funny. We lost about a dozen copies of Nevermind before JJJ first decided to played it. About 6 months after that it was on commercial radio...

    Reminiscing mode on: Most amasing concerts were Janes Addiction, Ministry and Gwar...

    Re: RATM are coming

    Sparky!!! On-ya mate for outing yaself as a ZZZ announcer in those heady days! I contributed, a few times, for a then up & comin music-scene mag whilst still at UQ - youd know the pub ...

    Still listen to Mininstry when I wanna chill-out a bit ...

    Ah, as for Victims of Noah (momentary synapse recollection), think they sunk with the ark.

    Toxic Garden Gnomes (went to school with the lads!) ventured Melb. way to cut a record deal, did many gigs, but didnt cut it unfortunately.

    At least I met my lovely wife of 15 yrs at a small Dooleys gig they did in 91 ... thats why they stick.

    Still in Brizzy Sparky?

    A friend of my wifes anounced on zzz but that was around 1999 ish I think. Used to love the Beer show on saturday arvos.

    Had a look at crap-bay before and there are heaps of tickets some as high as 10 000 which hopefully are fake bids. With any luck they get stuck with heaps of tickets and people just wait for the BDO, although a side show would be better.

    ZZZ was fun times. I was around 90-92ish. IMO, Ministry - Just one fix ia about my favorite song!

    FWIW: Victims of Noah were a local band that submitted a song to a covers competition. Six ribbons. It became a ZZZ classic... with lyrics like "If I were a Dean borther Id drive a big dozer and demolish six buildings to show that I care... If I were a pollie in the National party, Id give you six cash clips in brown paper bags... But Im just a simple man, a drought stricken farmer, so take these six ribbons to tie back your hair." Sheer poetry ;-)

    Im still in Brisburg, but more likely to listen to the Veronicas these days (with a 6yo daughter)

    Now you mention the lyrics Sparky, my memory of them is clearer - thems were heady political days.

    Yeh Im still Brizzy based, & with 3yr old twin boys Ill be the annoying back up vocals to Sarg with a bit of Hi5. The music is grating, but I tolerate the dvds only cause the girls are lookers!!

    Got my ticket to the BDO today. They sold out on BDO website by 7:15 this morning then ticketek sold out in 10 mins once they opened, the fastest the BDOs have ever sold out.

    Sydney went in less than 5mins setting a new benchmark for any event in the country.

    Bring on RAGE it going to be massive.

    Re: RATM are coming

    Good onya Sarg. Should be great.

    How did the BDO site treat you?

    I went on Tues night (midnight to 3pm) for the Sydney BDO -my daughter on one computer, me on the laptop- and found it very frustrating. Very slow, kept having to refresh, every time the Confirm page came up it was different(!), couldnt see the authentication codes, kept dropping out back to previous pages- all in SLOW motion- no confirmation, no e-mail. Turned off the firewall, wondered whether Firefox had anything to do with it. Kept at it till they said we were at our order limit (only 2 tickets per person for Sydney).

    So hopefully we got our tickets, but still no confirmation. A bit of a shemozzle. Heard of plenty of others with similar experiences.

    (No problems like this on CS ;) )

    Also, got the new Radiohead album In Rainbows over the internet. Check it out- minimum purchase price one pound sterling (by-passing the record company, they make about as much as they normally would). Very easy, very good album (much more satisfaction than BDO ticket purchasing). (Of course, being a JJJ devotee you know about this deal.)

    That info was from the BDO website so it must true ::). It might have gone on the volume of tickets sold in the time frame, which was 20 000, because RATM tickets for there seperate show in SYD and MELB sold out in 2-3 minutes but seperate concerts in entertainment centres and pubs etc. wouldnt have anywhere near that volume i wouldnt think.

    Greg my sister in law got it for me and she got them off ticketeck the BDO website was sold out before i even woke up. She got them with 32 seconds to spare because ticketeck kicks you off after 10 mins and cause she got on early just made it in time.

    If they dont confirm you might have to enter the ballot and get some that way. Good luck let us know how you go.

    Re: RATM are coming

    Hey Andy, some of those arent on that dvd. It doesnt have No Shelter, Guerilla Radio, Testify and Renegades.

    I usually put it on in the morning though im not up that early. I usually try to catch JTV on satuday and if I had it might have been mentioned on there.

    Oh well back to watching the dvds.... I hope you cant where a dvd out.
