Everybody’s fave stoneage romeos, the mighty Hoodoo Gurus –
one of the greatest-ever bands to stomp outta Australia, period – are planning on
marking their 30th anniversary this year with a series of Australian
shows in April. Prior to that they will issue a hits anthology, Gold Watch: 20 Golden Greats; it will
hit stores March 16 and will contain a new, previously unreleased track “Use-By
Date.” Full tracklisting below.

 

Back to those concerts, however: they will feature a slew of
special guests, including garage legends the Fleshtones (with whom the band has
had a long relationship) and Sonics, Red Kross, Japan’s 5.6.7.8.’s, and Oz
legends Died Pretty,  the Hard-Ons and
the Lovetones, plus several others. Talk about a blowout. Those dates and the
