Gyroscope February News

Welcome to the February news

Greetings Gyro-fanatics. Welcome to the February news, there is a lot to get in here so let's get right into it...

Tonight Gyroscope will be making quite the racket at Melbourne's Ferntree Gully Hotel, joined by local livewires Fangs. Tomorrow night the four Gyros will be exploding onto stage at Frankston's Pier Live, heading up a similarly tasty bill. There will be some tickets at the door for both of these shows, so if you're in the area (or can get to the area!) be sure to get yourselves down to these shows nice and early. They are likely to be Gyroscope's last Melbourne shows for quite some time, we know that you will miss them.

Gyroscope have already been very busy ripping up stages, and we are not even a third of the way through 2011. Who managed to catch Gyros destroying the Essential Stage at any of the 2011 Big Days Out? This was the guys second trip out with the touring circus and they might have even been better this year than last time around. Crowds were sweaty but undeniably huge and the band pulled out a brilliant mixture of older favourites and newer hits, sending people into a Gyro-tinged friendly. Everybody had a lot of fun.

Amongst Gyroscope's busy Big Day Out schedule were a few interviews. You can see for yourself first hand how everything went down at the Big Day Out, including Brad and Rob discussing meal tickets and inter-band snobbery with
Hit List TV. There are also some swell photos over at the Nova website. Big Day Out Gyro-mania - enjoy!

Something else that happened while Gyroscope were gallivanting around with the Big Day Out was triple j's Hottest 100. And what a big list it was this year. Biased as we are we think it would not have been quite so big without the inclusion of Baby, I'm Gettin' Better, which landed at a very awesome #40. Thanks for all the votes folks, check out the full list
here. Gyroscope also scored two more songs in the list 100-200, check out all of the songs that ALMOST made it here.

It seems that the mob responsible for the impressive 2011 Groovin' the Moo line-up agree that Gyroscope are on a bit of a roll; the band will be playing every date on the tour! This means that Gyroscope are headed to some regional locations they have not had an opportunity to impress for quite some time. The band will take off to Bendigo, Townsville, Maitland, Canberra and Bunbury. We hear Bendigo has already sold out, so if you are keen to get along to another of the dates be quick and head over to:

So, thought we might leave you with a bit of an oldie but a goodie this month. The blooper reel from Gyroscope's What Do I Know About Pain video is pretty priceless, and if you haven't managed to watch is yet it's definitely worth a few minutes. As is the rest of the Gyroscope Youtube page really, check it all out at: Some great video from throughout the years there, you can have a Gyro nostalgia trip.

Until next time.
