Gold Gin, a Melbourne “supergroup” featuring Ashley Naylor, Marc Welsh, Jim Coelli and Brett Wolfenden. Pat Carmody, Kat Spazzy, Tommy Boyce and Gemma Sharard, has formed for a one-off night to mark the 40th anniversary of the Kiss Alive album in Melbourne.

Kiss recorded the iconic Kiss Alive album on 21 June 1975. 40 years and two days later, the album will be performed from start to finish at the Yarraville Club in Melbourne.

Yarraville Live promoter James Young remembers the album well. “Cherry picking the best tracks from their first three albums ‘KISS’, ‘Hotter Than Hell’ and ‘Dressed To Kill’ the ‘Kiss Alive’ album features incendiary live versions of ‘Deuce’, ‘Strutter’, ‘Black Diamond’, ‘Cold Gin’ and of course ‘Rock and Roll All Nite’. And features some of the best guitar licks from Ace Frehley and showman banter from Paul Stanley ever put to vinyl. What a pleasure to be honouring the 40th anniversary of this true classic album in Melbourne with Melbourne’s best musicians, singers and Kiss fans.”

The ‘Kiss Alive’ album was released on 10 September, 1975, less than three months after the album was first recorded at shows in Detroit, Michigan; Cleveland, Ohio; Wildwood, New Jersey; and Davenport, Iowa.

Kiss called the album ‘Kiss Alive’ as a homage to the 1972 classic from Slade ‘Slade Alive’.

The Kiss Alive tracklisting was:

Got To Choose
Hotter Than Hell
Nothin’ To Lose
C’mon and Love Me
Watchin’ You
100,000 Years
Black Diamond
Rock Bottom
Cold Gin
Rock and Roll All Nite
Let Me Go, Rock N Roll

KISS ALIVE 40th Anniversary Celebration
Saturday 27 June, 7.30pm
The Yarraville Club, 135 Stephen Street, Yarraville
