BoyTown is out now

Unfortunately, I just left Sydney as Boytown was being released so I’ll miss out on seeing it. I have, however, listened to several of the tracks thanks to Tony Martin’s podcasts – Dishpan Hands being my favourite. If you don’t know what Boytown is all about – well, it’s about a boyband making a comeback – you’d better check the official Boytown website out yourself here. It appears that this month, several hundred people have flocked here looking for Boytown torrents. Sorry, you won’t find anything like that on this site but you will find a community of huge D-Gen fans – so enjoy!

Speaking of Tony, thanks to Scott for providing us with a scanned article of Tony Martin’s favourite comedic paraphernalia

We interview Late Show fans

Here’s the video clip of Kim and Kinuyo (and Anne as the camera-meister) interviewing people in 1993 at a school athletics carnival about whether they watch The Late Show.

Damn, I’m still in Glenrowan!

Thanks SO much to Lucas Buck for sending me this picture of the Glenrowan ‘attraction’. Lucas writes: “When a friend and I went up to Sydney to watch Australia qualify for the soccer World Cup we stopped off at Glenrowan and took this picture from outside the infamous business portrayed oh so well by Tony & Mick. I thought it might go okay on the ChampagneComedy website.”

Too right. Click the image for a fuller version!

Socceroos hunt for Late Show episodes

Thanks SO MUCH to Dufflecoat Supreme for finding this rare mention of The Late Show in the Age:

Mark, Santo Show

MARK Viduka [of the Australian World Cup team, the Socceroos] is another who will return home with good memories, albeit not necessarily from his field exploits. On one occasion during a player-media get-together he spotted TV personality Santo Cilauro. Obviously a fan from way back, Viduka asked Cilauro, who starred in the 1990s comedy sketch The Late Show, did he have any copies of the show with him in Germany. Told that he didn’t, Viduka responded: “Come on Santo, you must have some, you must. The boys really need to see some.” Obviously disappointed that Cilauro couldn’t help, Viduka walked away but got just 20 metres before he turned back and yelled: “Santo, you know the sketch where you had the guy who was your uncle? That was really funny.”

Frontline series 2 and 3 DVDs

23 March 2006 sees Frontline series 2 and 3 out on DVD after years of waiting! Starring Rob Sitch as Mike Moore and Jane Kennedy as Brooke Vandenberg. Thanks to the forum members BenG and Kichigai for alerting us to this important event.

The DVD of Frontline series 1 was devoid of any extras so we aren’t expecting much from this series, but hey – perhaps we’ll be pleasantly surprised!

For those who never got to watch the three Frontline series, which aired in the mid 90s, it was a biting, satirical take on the current affairs formula prevalent on Australian TV screens in shows like A Current Affair, Real Life and 60 minutes. In fact, it was ‘The Office’ of its day, with its fly-on-the-wall ‘reality TV style’ comedy. The spin and deception that goes into producing a current affairs show was skillfully deconstructed—what appears to be a worthy topic being broadcast to the masses is, thanks to the Frontline’s top cast, stripped to pieces and revealed as being nothing more than ratings-grabbing, sensationalist tat.
