One On One Interview With The Living End

17/10/2014 by Jen Taylor

Over the last 20 years The Living End has dominated the Australian music scene. They’ve seen and heard it all before, but they’re still doing what they love; touring and making music. The band’s drummer, Andy Strachan, confirms they are still going from strength-to-strength. I loved it when I first joined the band - we were spending so much time over in America on tour. If we weren’t in America, we were in Australia. We were just following the sun – we never saw winter for what seemed like years.

14/10/2014 by Sam Tremayne

I'll be honest, the main reason I chose to review The Judge was because the coolest man in the world, Robert Downey Jr, is the protagonist. That was enough of a selling point for me.

So going into 'Gone Girl' the pressure was on.
