But, looking back, one of the best tracks off The Bowery is Same Suburb Different Park. If you haven’t heard it, you need to, and if you haven’t seen the video clip, you haven’t […]
A man slaps a child that isn’t his own at a family barbecue. This is the incident that starts The Slap, an amazing eight part Australian TV series which is based on a novel of the same name by Christos Tsiolkas. I really loved the book when I read it and usually books are better […]
