The Rock-itt : October 2009
Wolfmother Rise from the Ashes to a Sell Out Show at the Enmore Theatre Photos and Review by DaveTozer.com.au (myspace.com/davetozerphotos for more photos) This is Wolfmother's first Sydney concert since disbanding in 2008. This Enmore Theatre performance is a rare, intimate performance showcasing their new album 'Cosmic Egg'. Stockdale and the new line up of guitarist Aidan Nemeth, bassist and keyboardist Ian Peres and drummer Dave Atkins are out to show the world that the 'Wolf' has risen from the ashes to reconquer the land armed with their Cosmic Egg. The album, even before its scheduled release date of October 23, is looking like a positive birth as the first single New Moon Rising has been receiving extensive radio airplay. This was also vindicated by the huge response to the song on the night that was equal to if not stronger, than any reaction by the crowd to the bands award winning songs from their worldwide successful self titled debut album. The Wolf and his new Cubs appeared on the very smoky stage which set the scene for a truly explosive return, opening with Dimension (which just happens to be the first track off their debut album). The power and thump of this delivery reassured the crowd that they still sound the same and are ready to move forward with this fresh new line up. The band then went on perform with power and vigour such hits as Woman, Mind's Eye, Colossal and White Unicorn to a very excited and appreciative audience, so much so, the floor boards of the Enmore Theatre were bouncing so strongly it felt like an earthquake under my feet. New songs like New Moon Rising, Back Round, White Feather, and In the Morning meshed seamlessly into the night's proceedings as the momentum of their performance was consistently solid. The addition of 'mini-me wolf' bassist and keyboardist, Ian Peres provided an exciting new dimension and visual dynamic to the live show. He 'pounced on' and 'leapt into the air' over his keyboards and the thrashing of his bass guitar with his bigger than life afro top in the mix! The band's upcoming heavy touring schedule will only help to improve the chemistry and interaction
