The show’s called I’m Flipped Out Over You and no wonder. It’s named after the b-side to The Victims potent 1977 single, Television Addict, and is the wedding reception of legendary Perth drummer James Baker (Victims, The Scientists, the Hoodoo Gurus, Beasts of Bourbon, The Dubrovniks, The Painkillers and more) and his sweetheart, Cath Podger – two of the best rock’n’roll people there ever were.


The line-up, featuring Baker on drums in every band, is a love story in itself, suitably curated for a coupla crazy kinds in love.


The show features The Scientists (yes, we can say that now!), The Dubrovniks, The Painkillers, The Television Addicts, Kim Salmon & Spencer P Jones – plus Spencer P Jones (solo), and Greg Dear (solo). It is a gathering of legendary Australian punks – Dave Faulkner, Kim Salmon, James Baker, Rod Radalj, Boris Sujdovic and more will playing (and being) the classics.


BUT THAT’S NOT ALL! In the last week or so the original lineup Le Hoodoo Gurus line-up (James Baker, Dave Faulkner, Roddy Radalj and Kimble Rendall) have been added to an already impressive bill. Stoneage, backstage, punk and outrage indeed.


I’m Flipped Out Over You happens on Saturday, June 6, at the Rosemount Hotel. Tickets are $55 (plus booking fee) from
