“Once Were Sharps”- Round 1 & 2
By Nick Tolewski & Dean Crozier

“Once Were Sharps” opens a window on the Sharpie gang phenomena that swept Melbourne during the disco decade, honing in on perhaps the largest and fiercest of Melbourne’s Sharpie crews from the era, the Thomastown Sharps. Pieced together from first-hand accounts of the people who were there, “Once Were Sharps” takes a short, sweet, sometimes light-hearted look at Thomastown Sharp gang life and the moments (and fights) that defined them, from the gang’s inception through to their demise.

here come the Sirens

The City Sharps third release, an EP titled here come the Sirens is their best yet, consolidating their unique sound with these thought provoking idolistic vocals surrounded in a blanket of hot guitar and hooks, flourished throughout in booming bass and driven by hypnotic pounding drums.

Once were Sharps – The Colourful Life And Times Of The Thomastown Sharps

By Nick Tolewski & Dean CrozierTake a trip back to Melbourne in the 1970s, to a time of ‘connies’, Staggers jeans, rat tails, and the people who wore them – the humble Sharpie.

“Once Were Sharps” opens a window on the Sharpie gang phenomena that swept Melbourne during the disco decade, honing in on perhaps the largest and fiercest of Melbourne’s Sharpie crews from the era, the Thomastown Sharps. Pieced together from first-hand accounts of the people who were there, “Once Were Sharps” takes a short, sweet, sometimes light-hearted look at Thomastown Sharp gang life and the moments (and fights) that defined them, from the gang’s inception through to their demise.

Catch a Falling Star by Peter Haywood

When asked what it is about fame and celebrity that draws people so desperately to it, the record producer and songwriter Kim Fowley replied, ‘Inadequacy … it’s over-compensation for a crummy life, and you decide to have a fantasy life’.

So it is for Nicky Nova, a Bowie-obsessed young man growing up in Melbourne in the early 1980s. Nicky moves into a big, ramshackle share house in Lygon Street, Carlton, with a bunch of musician friends. He forms a band and dreams of becoming a world famous rock’n’roll star. But is the band as hell-bent on fame and fortune as their singer?

Loaded with pop culture references, Catch a Falling Star is part cautionary tale, part travelogue of a recent bygone era of skinny ties, leg-warmers and big hair. This is a post-punk story about friendship and betrayal, the impossible dreams of youth, and the compromises we must make in order to survive.

If you’ve ever put together a garage band and dreamed of bigger things; if you’ve lived through the bohemian grunge and fractious ego mix of the inner-suburban share house experience; if you have fond memories of the heady excesses of the 80s, you will love Catch a Falling Star.
