Sydney rockers Lillye have recorded an incredible, scorching version of The Screaming Jets classic, Better.

The nearly 30 year old song became part of Aussie Rock’s DNA from the moment that iconic drum fill kicked in. It peaked at number 4 on the Aria Charts, was quickly certified Gold and the Jets have been a household name ever since.

To celebrate its’ achievement, Lillye wanted to pay tribute to the song that has become an Australian rock anthem.
Bringing their own character to the song with its brooding versus and darker feel, the band have brought new light to it. Jets bassist, Paul Woseen gave it a big tick of approval when it was played to him too, stating that “It’s fucking great… I love how the guys have really made it their own

After all the hardship that Australia has had since the end of last year, we wanted to cover a classic Aussie rock tune to lift spirits and take people back to the days when pub rock was alive and kicking “ says lead singer, Virginia Lillye.

The track was recorded at bass player Christian Lauria’s home studio, Machine Men Studios. Christian loves nothing more than a simplistic bass line which, he believes, in turn is the pulse and main drive to a song. “I was drawn to this iconic song because of this. To me it resembles the resilient nature of our country.. keeps our pulses pumping”.

This is the first release from Lillye that welcomes new member to the band, Stef Billimoria. “Better was the first song I heard by the Screaming Jets. That iconic drum intro and rhythm set the feel and intensity of the song that still holds up today”. With the drums being laid down at Hill Valley Studios in the Blue Mountains, Stef recalls the fun he had laying down his parts and keeping in the classic cymbal “ting” in the middle of the song was a must. “I wanted to pay homage to the original by keeping this in. It’s a small detail with much weight

Lillye have been in the studio finishing off tunes for their next album due out later in the year. They can’t wait for things to improve in the world so they can get out there and do what they love most.. playing live. Adding such a classic Aussie rock tune to their repertoire, they hope to bring rock ‘n’ roll back to the masses throughout these hard times.

CRAZYTOWN SHOW CANCELLATION

***CRAZYTOWN SHOW CANCELLATION ANNOUNCEMENT FROM PROMOTERS***

Due to a car accident when Crazy Town hit a moose and while nobody was killed there have been injuries to two of the travelling party which make the long haul to Australia and ability to perform live not possible. Now we are doing everything we can to reschedule these dates so we ask all the fans and media in this situation to remain patient while behind the scenes we work as fast as we can to see if it’s possible to set this back up for either January or February.

As a small Australian business have never cancelled a tour it’s an expensive thing to do for all parties involved losing in flights, venues in foot traffic for the night and our nationwide team apologizes again and maintains for the fans we always provide the cheapest tickets for the best fans out there in our niche of the market, of course anyone unable to attend the rescheduled dates will either be refunded direct from RapTix, Oztix, or your other point of sale.

So hold onto your tickets, bare with us let us work hand in hand with Crazy Town and hopefully we are rocking on!

*Lillye would like to send our wishes to the band and their crew… we will see you all soon!*
