Rocking Festival with Cervantes Creations and Quokkas

Hi, it’s Greenygrey. Yesterday’s good news about Grey’s poem from its Werewolf of Oz book has inspired us to post another episode up today. Here it is:

16.  ROCKING IT AT THE ROCK-IT FESTIVAL IN PERTH 

Sancho and Don said they were off to the Rock-It festival in Perth, and invited me along. I jumped at the chance; metaphorically of course, because I was in the car at the time.

I felt like I needed a bit of fun after a tough time in Latham, and they seemed to be in the same situation having just escaped Cervantes.

Rock-It Festival in Perth

We had difficulty finding the Joondalup area where Rock-It is held, and had to do a loop around the neck of the Swan River. However, once we entered the festival it really rocked.

Tracer started the day off for us with some fantastic space rock. They were followed by a storming Airbourne set, and a great slide-guitar fuelled bluesy show by Rose Tattoo. Brian Johnson era AC/DC played a solid set, and nicely warmed us up for a sensational Bon Scott era AC/DC bad boy boogie headlining show.

Relaxing on Rotto: Rottnest Island

We were hot and sweaty after the show, so we headed out to Rottnest Island; or Rotto as it’s known locally. There was certainly nothing rotten about it, and we enjoyed the beautiful beaches on the unspoilt island.

We were joined by some quirky quokkas: animals that are to kangaroos what greenygreys are to werewolves. They were lots of fun, and provided great company before we fell asleep under the rising sun.

Tracer Chaser Leads to Double Discovery of Relevancy

Hi, it’s Green. We heard a good song by Australian band Tracer on Planet Rock, so we thought we’d look them up. Our first interesting discovery was that their debut album is called Spaces In Between, which reminded us of the Folding Mirror poetry form.

And then we went to their Mascot label’s website, and the Cool Green Recordings has a greenygrey layout. How cool!

We have checked with the Werewolf of Oz, and it turns out they played at the Rock-It Festival, so we’ve added them to the book of the blog we’re editing at the moment:
