No Longer Cranky, this Babs is Home for Good

Who: On Inc
Where: SJ's on Beaumont
Author: Debra Killalea
When: Friday December 28, 2001

AFTER almost 10 years away from his beloved Newcastle ONinc lead songman Bruce 'Babs' Clark is coming home.

The release of a debut album and the need for a more laidback lifestyle prompted the move for the former Cranky member.

The guys have released The Rhythm Flavour which was a project more than four years in the making.

ONinc will crank it up for fans at SJ's Hotel at Hamilton next Friday, December 28.

It will be the band's first gig in Newcastle since the move back for Babs. Fellow ONinc frontman and father-to-be Scotty Chapman will also make the move back home early next year.

Between them and with the help of regular members Gina Collins and Dave (DJ Jizz) Norris the guys have constructed a style of music that crosses from the dance floor to the mosh pit.

While many have admired the unique sound of the live high-energy dance band Babs admits it can also work against them as they are not classed as mainstream dance.

ONinc are also planning a trip to the United States in 2002 and are looking forward to the upcoming Falls Festival to be held on New Year's Eve in Bells Beach, Victoria.
