When: Wednesday July 7, 1999

NEWCASTLE'S rock, folk and country chaps THE AUSTRALIAN BEEF WEEK SHOW have joined up with Sydney rock, folk and country chaps THE INFIDELS for a gig tonight at the Northern Star.

The Infidels feature former members of LEONARDO'S BRIDE and include that band's present drummer JOHN HOWELL (second from left). Other members include (from left) guitarist NICK MEREDITH, Infidels songwriter and singer-guitarist RAOUL GRAF, double bass player MARK HOWARD and keyboard piano accordion player JOHN GAUCHI. The Infidels recently recorded a live CD HERE'S COMES JOHNNY in a more folk, urban country-oriented style.

Highlights include past Infidels releases including BIRTHDAY INVITATION, AMELIA and the NICK DRAKE song KNOW. Graf recently recorded an album with ED KUEPPER under the name THE SPLINTERMEN. That CD should be out in September. Meanwhile, Here Comes Johnny is out through UM & AH records through PHANTOM. Um & Ah may also be releasing 'one or two' of MARTY-WILSON PIPER's (THE CHURCH) solo efforts later on.
