ROBYN LOAU : Malaria

10 years is far too long for a label to hold onto an album of this calibre, and really why wasn’t it released in the first place? Everyone’s favorite Girlfriend was due to release this solo album after critical acclaim and commercial success of the first few singles (the rest of the album was a triumph also) making it one of the most anticipated albums back then - but thanks to some very influential & clever folk, the CD is now back - not only on CD, but on iTunes and Robyn is also the first Female artist to release it on USB Wristband! How cool is that?

This is THE album of the month - heck - the whole year!


Missy Higgins Makes Waves In The USA

After six months touring the U.S., Missy Higgins is making real inroads. Her single “Where I Stood” is already a genuine hit in cities like Atlanta and Minneapolis and the story is spreading with a dozen new stations adding the track each week this month. Tomorrow Missy will fan these flames when she performs on the hugely popular “Tonight Show with Jay Leno”. It will air in Australia on The Comedy Channel at 10.30pm on Friday, August 29th. This will be her fourth – and biggest - major American TV performance and follows recent bookings on “Late Night with Conan O’Brien” and “The Jimmy Kimmel Show”.

Missy will then head out on tour yet again for a few weeks opening for the Indigo Girls before heading right across America as special guest of piano man Ben Folds from September 24 through November 14. All this follows hot on the heels of a recent headlining run which saw her sell out major venues such as the 1400 capacity Webster Hall in New York City. This growing buzz based largely on her memorable live shows is, of course, reminiscent of the way in which Missy’s music originally came to attention in Australia.

In the coming months Missy will release a brand-new digital EP in the U.S, entitled “Where I Stood”. The song has already been downloaded over 100,000 times via U.S. iTunes alone in recent months after being featured in popular TV shows like Grey’s Anatomy, Smallville, One Tree Hill, Brothers & Sisters, and The Hills.

My address is getting emails and I never subscribed.

We abhor spam emails, and never add anyone without their express permission – in fact, we only accept members who sign up themselves – and on the rare occasion sign up on a sign up sheet and event, where internet connection is not possible.
We suggest that your first talk to your family and friends and ask them if they used your details. Cheeky members of the public like to enter our competitions, and vote for their favourite stars, religiously – our polls and awards are some of the hottest and most respected around – so fans can get a tad competitive sometimes. They do know this is clearly against the rules – but there is no telling some people – so please double check first, as most times you are the only person that can unsubscribe your account. In the event of being subscribed you can always use the unsubscribe option on our emails, or if ALL ELSE fails use the contact form on the ‘contact us’ page, and select the correct method of contact.
If you do not do it that way, we cannot help you – this is also to avoid silly people taking down other peoples genuine accounts.

I cannot access some of your videos on demand.
A video has disappeared from a top story / feature / content item.

If a video is removed from our service, you will no longer see the page for that video either.
