Who: Rube Fruit Jungle
Where: Northern Star Hotel
When: Saturday April 22, 2000

ACCORDING to Adelaide's RUBY FRUIT JUNGLE, if they were a painting they'd be a Kandinsky and if they were a wine they'd be a Margaret River Merlot.

But if the band, playing this Saturday night at the Northern Star Hotel, was a cartoon super hero, its members unanimously agree it would be WONDER WOMAN. That's the motive behind the group's latest single, a cover of the theme song to the 1970s television show, about the superhero babe with a gold lasso and stars-and-stripes bikini.

(Remember her invisible plane?)

Like Wonder Woman, Ruby Fruit Jungle is full of superhuman energy levels live, which have earned it rave reviews from everyone from LUKA BLOOM to PLANT & PAGE. The globe-trotting five-piece group shared the stage with Plant, who described the girls as 'unique ... integral in breaking new ground in the music industry'.

Anyone who has seen this band perform in Newcastle will testify that their wild world music sounds, woven into electronic beats, are impossible to stand still to.

TE has five copies of WONDER WOMAN to give away. Mail an envelope, with your name, address and telephone number on the back, to RUBY FRUIT JUNGLE GIVEAWAY, PO Box 615, Newcastle, 2300.
