Young Bands Cranking it Up

What: Crank 98
Where: Newcastle Panthers
When: Saturday November 28, 1998

SATURDAY night's CRANK 98 showcase at the Newcastle Workers Club will feature young rock bands, some making their live debut.

PROSPECT is one of those groups, performing a mix of cover versions and original songs for the first time in front of an audience.

The band's singer KIERAN WICKS described their sound as 'melodic acoustic rock', performing some of the softer songs by groups such as PEARL JAM, METALLICA, FAITH NO MORE and PANTERA. Two of the band's members have played in other well-known Hunter groups.

Bass player MARK FRASER has played with MISCHLING, and drummer SHANE BOWDEN also plays with RAWHEAD REX and INSOLENCE. Other members are guitarists STEVE CONSTABLE and LUKE TOPIC, who play electric and acoustic guitars, alternating between lead and rhythm.

Crank 98 is presented by students of the Hunter Institute of TAFE music industry skills course.

Bands performing on the night are TWIN PSYCHE, BANK, LICORICE, MENAGERIE and RED BESSIE. TE
