Some Words About Scott Kingman
Just in case you didn’t know, there’s no more suitable candidate to photograph a legend like Dave Gleeson than our own axe-man Scott Kingman.
In recent times Scott has amassed a selection of online International awards for his photographic work through Viewbug and Canon Australia. He ranked in the top 30 out of over 200,000+ entrants in a National Geographic photo competition in 2017.
Outside of his renowned rock‘n’roll images Scott has created a thriving business in his seaside hideaway on Victoria’s East Gippsland region. He is self-taught and has honed his craft through years of experimentation, reading, an abundance of practice and a fair swag of trial and error.
Scott is due to open his own gallery in Lake Tyers Beach in April 2018.

Rock Radio Riot Tour 2018 With Special Guests Boom Crash Opera & Special Jets BBQ’s
The Screaming Jets proudly announce a national tour with rock contemporaries and special guests, Boom Crash Opera.
These two Australian Radio favourites team up to deliver a powerhouse of high rotation hits in what is sure to be one of the rock events of the year!
2017 was a huge year for The Screaming Jets with two solo laps of the country off the back of their “Chrome” album success, culminating in the They Who Rock tour with the Baby Animals. With 12 sold out shows across the country, punters proved that radio rock is still alive and proud in this country.
Boom Crash Opera’s list of hits kick off in the late 1980’s with ‘Onion Skin’, ‘Dancing in The Storm’, ‘Great Wall’, ‘Hands Up In The Air’, ‘Get Out Of The House’, ‘The Best Thing’, ‘Gimme’, ‘Bettadaze’ and ‘Talk About It’. Boom Crash Opera’s bankable discography is a real treasure trove of greatness and It isn’t until you see this band that you realize how many great songs they have in the armoury.
It’s Gonna’ Be HUGE!

“Gotcha Covered” – Special New Album Preview Shows
If you saw The Screaming Jets ball tearing show on the recent Red Hot Summer tour you’d know they were packing a few surprises in the set. Anyone hear the sound of EasyBeats “Wedding Ring” or AC/DC’s “Rock’n’Roll Damnation” ? Well, they were warming you up for their next recording adventure will be in the form of the “Gotcha Covered” – Great Australian Songbook.
A homage of sorts to the bands favorite Aussie music legends of the last 3 decades. The boys are about to re-record a collection of Aussie radio classics and live anthems using The Jets own unmistakable trademark attitude.
On Fri 3rd & Sat 4th Aug at Sydney’s most iconic rock venue, The Bridge Hotel, the boys will showcase their new “Gotcha Covered” album in it’s entirety.
These two special shows will be your only opportunity to see the band play the entire new album from end to end with no holds barred. Then they’ll hit the stage for a second set of all the hits, classics and surprises you’d expect.
Get there early… The Jets will be their own support on both nights!
“Better” – Most Played Australian Track On MMM
In 1980 radio station MMM Sydney was launched.
11 years later, in 1991, The Screaming Jets released what was to become an Australian rock anthem titled “Better”.
In August 2017, MMM Sydney crowned “Better” as the most played single by an Australian artist in its 37 year history. “Better” has been played over 4900 times since it’s release 26 years ago.
Sister station MMM Melbourne reports that “Better” holds the #2 spot on their list of most played Aussie artists. Melbourne locals Hunters & Collectors “Holy Grail” take out the Melbourne crown for #1.
MMM has championed the Jets from the outset and has always been the heartland of Screaming Jets listeners since the beginning of time. Dave Gleeson, Paul Woseen, Jimi Hocking, Scott Kingman and new member Mark Macleod would like to thank you, the people, for continuing to show your undying support for the band.
“You are the reason we keep touring writing and stay passionate about Oz rock. Shout out to all you Aussie Music fans.. your support matters!” – The Jets
Villa Noosa Hotel – Important Change Of Venue
Villa Noosa Hotel – Fri 28th July – Important Change Of Venue
The show for tonight, Fri 28th July, at Villa Noosa Hotel has had to be unexpectedly moved to a new venue at The Wharf Tavern. The new venue will be open for fans at 8pm, all tickets will be fully honoured and the band are glad to announce that the promoter has arranged round trip buses from the original venue to the new venue at no charge to fans.
If you have any questions at all about ticketing for this show we encourage you to contact tixsupport.moshtix.com.au
The new venue, The Wharf Tavern, is at the corner of River Esplanade & Parkyn Parade in Mooloolaba. Ph:(07) 5444 8383
Obviously the band regret this last minute change, which has been beyond their control, but with the free buses and the promoter being so willing to make every effort not to cancel the show you can bet that this Chromozone Tour date will see the band just as keen as ever to make the joint jump.
Considering the last minute nature of this venue change the band would like to thank promoter QLive for going to hell and back to create an alternative location for the show.
