Big Beat of the '50s -- June edition (117)

The June edition of Big Beat (official magazine of the Australian Rock 'n' Roll Appreciation Society) is now in print. Now up to it's 117th edition -- published quarterly -- the popular mag covers 50s rock 'n' roll news from around Australia including reviews, interviews, festival news, columns, feature articles and more. June's edition has an interesting article on music author and radio presenter Charlie Gillett who died in March of this year as well as an investigation into the origins of the term "rockabilly" and the style it became synonymous with. Local country/rockabilly band Gatorbait get a write-up on page 20-21 as does 'Melbourne Roots' which was a lovely surprise. (Thanks Big Beat) There is also a feature on the upcoming Victorian rock 'n' roll festival, Camperdown Cruise (22-24th October 2010). To buy an issue or become a subscriber please visit the Australian Rock 'n' Roll Appreciation Society website.
