The Rock-itt : May 2011
Saturday 16th April, 2011 saw the last day of operation at its iconic venue with an all day party at the Manly Fisho's which saw legendary and familiar headliners Celibate Rifles take the venue out in style with the help of support acts Hong Kong & MP5 (ex-Mushroom Planet). MP5 kicked off proceedings getting the evenings party rock'n with their tight melodic Sydney punk, followed by Hong Kong with their big raw guitar driven wall of rock. The venue was packed and headliners Celibate Rifles wasted no time getting the party into full swing playing such familiar tunes as; Spirits, Johnny, Killing Time, Ice Blue, Wonderful Life, O Salvation, Seams, Cold Wind, Electravision Mantra and Ocean Shore. The band was pumped putting on an energetic and polished performance to a very appreciative capacity crowd which saw the band return to the stage to do an encore kicking off with; Back in the Red, Wild Desire, Hanging on, and finishing the night on a big note with the aptly titled song Let's do it Again! The Celibate Rifles since their inception in 1979, have about eighteen albums under their belts, and proved that originality, talent, and experience rules big time as their performance epitomised the true quality of Australian Rock for which the Fisho's has been famous for showcasing! Director/Sound Production Manager Kevin Meaney wanted us to say: The Directors would like to thank the staff, both casual and permanent (present and past) for all their help and support over these difficult times, in particular; Ad's, Angus, Christo, John, Kiwi Kev, Mark, Paul, Ray and Richard "The Man at the Fish". The club would also like to give a big thank you to all the bands that have played there over the years, Pete at The Rock-itt magazine, Dave Tozer photography and to each and every one of you who came and supported this iconic venue on the Northern Beaches because "Without you music isn't live!" Preparations are in full swing at the new venue to re-open the Fisho's doors in a few months time, which is located opposite Manly Oval, at the Review and Photos by DaveTozer.com.au To view photos of the night visit www.facebook.com/davetozerphotography
