Along Came A Spider To Support The Living End

The Living End’s Friday and Saturday night shows at The Corner Hotel in Melbourne this week both feature a special guest support band called Ivy and the Big Apples. Who are they?



It kind of sounds a bit of a surprise is in store at both shows.

As Spiderbait fans know, ‘Ivy and the Big Apples’ was the name of the third Spiderbait album.

Could The Living End be planning a bit of a special feature spot from Finley’s own Spiderbait for their last two Melbourne shows? It certainly sounds like it.

Spiderbait went on hiatus after the release of the ‘Tonight Alright’ tour of 2005 and bass player and singer Janet English became a mum. Kram has released his solo ‘Mixtape’ and Whitt has been active as a producer.

Spiderbait have reactivated for the occasional gig but not very often. However, in recent times Kram has been talking about the band being back in the studio working on their first album in 7 years.

Fans of The Living End may just be the first to hear the new Spiderbait music road-tested this Friday and Saturday at the Corner Hotel.

And what was the line Chris Cheney recently threw The Age in his interview with Andrew Murfett? “I can remember (in the early-1990s) I used to get so nervous if I saw Kram from Spiderbait or the guys from the Sharp. They were doing it: playing shows, releasing albums. They were on Hey Hey!””

But then again, I could be completely wrong and there may really be a new band called Ivy and the Big Apples who have been lucky enough to score a support for The Living End. All will be revealed tomorrow.
