Flying Headfirst into 2007
The spacious New Roscoe stage enabled Australian band, Headfirst, the opportunity to strut their stuff and produce a performance, which oozed class from the first power chord to the last. With brothers Treno and Lance, each having a unique and distinctive voice and stage presence, complimenting each other perfectly, add King Tutts on drums, and you have the complete recipe for a classic performance of Rock Music at its zenith. Playing a mixture of their own tracks, including “Money,” “UFO” and “Gangbang” to rock classics “Born to be wild,” Should I stay or should I go” and “Rebel Yell” to rock versions of “Tainted Love” and the Proclaimers “I’m Gonna Be (500 miles).” This trio, with there all round performance and immense talent, must surely, after only one week of the New Year, be in pole position as the Top Rock Band for 2007. If a well known world lager was a Rock Band, it would probably be called Headfirst.
