Shaun Kirk: Top Five Gigs

1. Gary Clark Jr at The Corner Hotel, Melbourne – 2013. I discovered this guy only a few months back through an Eric Clapton ‘Crossroads’ DVD and have been somewhat obsessed ever since. When I heard he was coming to Melbourne while I was back home at the same time I had to be there. What a guitar player!

2. Tony Joe White at Ruby’s Lounge, Melbourne – 2009. A friend of mine called me to see if I wanted to go and see a guy called Tony Joe White, otherwise known as ‘The Swamp Fox!’ Naturally with a title like that I was intrigued. Little did I know that this ‘Swamp Fox’ fellow was going to change my perspective on how I want to make music.

3. Buddy Guy at Bluesfest, Byron Bay — 2010. The best entertainer on the planet in my opinion. No fancy lights show, no crazy million dollar theatrics, just a straight up, in your face blues gig! I’ve never witnessed somebody hold a crowd in the palm of their hand like Buddy does.

4. Bob Dylan at Rod Laver Arena, Melbourne – 2007. Dylan was the first influence on my songwriting as I can imagine he is to many others. To watch him walk out on stage that night was something I was pretty convinced I wouldn’t witness. The best thing about this gig was that I could barely understand a word that was coming from the man’s mouth, yet at the end of each song I felt I had been told a story I could completely understand. Amazing!

5. Tedeski Trucks Band at Bluesfest – 2013. I was well aware of the quality of the Tedeski Trucks Band prior to seeing them this year. But witnessing them live was something spectacular. Trucks is one of my all-time favourite guitar players and together with the massive ensemble of amazing musicians in the band every single song was mindblowing.

Shaun Kirk plays The Joynt May 12, Solbar Maroochydore May 16 and Beach Hotel Byron May 17.

Diatribe: Top Five Chins

1. The Tick. As far as comically large chins go, you pretty much can’t go past The Tick. Played in the short-lived Tick live action series by Patrick Warburton ie. Puddy from ‘Seinfeld’ and Joe Swanson from ‘Family Guy’, both of whom also have comically large chins to the point that the three characters will now be referred to as ‘The Holy Chinity’. Spoon!

2. Bruce Campbell. A B-lister who has survived decades in ‘the biz’ using only his wits and the magnificence of his chin. His autobiography is titled ‘If Chins Could Kill’. Though his power is derived from his Boomstick, his authority is powered solely by the chin.

3. The guy who played Rico in ‘Starship Troopers’ [Ed’s note: Casper Van Dien]. Possibly the most chiselled jaw in existence. This is how I imagine Christian fundamentalists believe Adam would have looked like. His career may have died after this movie, but that facial bull-bar is immortal.

4. Ron Perlman. When I first saw ‘Alien: Resurrection’, I assumed the producers had engineered some kind of human/ orangutan hybrid, Dr Moreau style, specifically for that movie. It turns out it was just Ron Perlman. He can, and does, eat dinner off that chin. That’s a science fact.

5. Kim Jong-un’s three chins. His people are starving just so these divine chins can exist. Pay your respects.

Diatribe support Afrika Bambaataa at the Hi-Fi Saturday May 18.

Panama: Top Five

Obscure '80s Soundtracks

1. ‘The Wraith’ (1987).
Starring a very young Charlie Sheen, I was lucky enough to discover this little gem a few years back. ‘The Wraith’ (a vengeful spirit played by a boyish Sheen) is decked out in a motorcycle helmet and full leathers. How very Daft Punk! Michael Hoenig, who scored the music for the film, also performed in Tangerine Dream.

2. ‘Fright Night’ (1985). ‘Fright Night’ is one of my favourite ‘80s vampire flicks of all time! I don’t think the film is obscure but it is very, very sexy. Brad Fiediel’s song ‘Dream Window’ is a knockout.  Back in the day Brad tinkled the ivories for Hall And Oates, AND he wrote the soundtrack to ‘Terminator 2’... wow!

3. ‘Nankyoko Monogatari’ (1983 - released in the US as ‘Antarctica’). I was lucky enough to stumble across this classic thanks to a buddy I met at film school. If I could describe this soundtrack in one word it would be E-P-I-C. Vangelis (the composer) had just finished scoring Blade Runner when he wrote this. It makes me want to drop 15k on a vintage Yamaha CS 80 synth.

4. ‘The Lost Boys’ (1987). Definitely not obscure but an absolute classic. I was very surprised when my girlfriend said she hadn’t seen it. There is a very, very funny saxophone scene early in the movie equipped with pelvic thrusts I totally recommend you check it out if you haven’t already.

5. ‘Big Trouble In Little China’ (1986). I just HAD to include a John Carpenter movie — come on it’s the ‘80s after all! I loved this film as a child.  It’s just so damn impressive how Carpenter would direct and then score the same movie.

Panama’s EP ‘It’s Not Over’ is out now.
