Operation Lager Launched

Who: Operation Lager and The I Love Busey Show
Where: Hunter on Hunter
When: Friday July 21, 2000

THE lads from Punk/Ska band OPERATION LAGER will need to keep their eyes on the road and their hands on the wheel this Friday night. Or that will be the case at least until after the show. The band will have to drive back to Newcastle's Hunter On Hunter for an over-18s shows with POWDERKEG, DRAW THE LINE, MELACK and KILACRANKIE, after an earlier all-ages JAM FACTORY gig, with NUBRIUM and PHOBILE MONES, at Raymond Terrace High School. The band's profile was recently boosted with a national interview on TRIPLE J after winning 'MP3 Of The Week' for the song HORSE STEROIDS (I WANNA BE IN THE WWF), which can be downloaded from the band's home page, which is linked to the www.newcastlebands.com website.

BIZI BRIZZI: HARD working Sydney DJ ROB BRIZZI will be the special guest DJ at Friday night's SHANK BAR dance party at the Cambridge Hotel. Brizzi, who will perform a two-hour set from midnight, plays 'Hi-NRG' dance music which can be heard on Sydney's dance music station WILD FM. Newcastle's own DJ FUEL will open the night with a three-hour set from 9pm. Another Newcastle DJ CHOOOS will follow Brizzi from 2am until late.

GET CHUB: IT started out as a house band for after-match functions. But now the COOKS HILL UNITED BAND, or C.H.U.B. to players and officials, has emerged as a force to be reckoned with both on and off the field. This Saturday night C.H.U.B will kick off its first off-field offensive at the Lass O'Gowrie. Star player PUCKO is expected to draw from his usual deadly arsenal of ELVIS, HOT CHOCOLATE and GARRY GLITTER, while CORMACK O'RIORDAN has flagged some planned manoeuvres believed to be comprised of REM, HUNTERS & COLLECTORS and POLICE among others. DAVE MORLEY and ANTHONY DEAN have been named in the starting rhythm section lineup, with TIMMY TOOL MAN and JASON 'FINGERS' MARSICH on the interchange bench.

SING TO EAT: FOR eight years DAVE TARRANT has been a weekly fixture in a Port Stephens Club. But no more. Starting this month the host will offer Newcastle's budding karaoke singers the exclusive chance to BE A MIDWEEK MEGASTAR at the Phoenix club. Tonight, from 8pm until 11pm, serious singers will compete for prizes, ranging from dinner and champagne vouchers at Hudsons Bar & Grill to dinners at Scallywags Family Restaurant. Casual singers are also eligible for a selection of 'fun prizes' on offer.
