Could this be the greatest concert of all time?

So I recently received VIP tickets to quite possibley the greatest concert of all time. I had to rub my eyes a couple of times when I saw the lineup of bands.....Mental as Anything, The Proclaimers and the B-52's. I'm excited to say the least.

Having recently only just seen Mental as Anything at last years Expo 88 20th anniversary I am more than keen to see them in action again. As for the the Proclaimers well their Sunshine on Leith was the first album I purchased as a youngster all the way back in 1988. The B-52's, Love shack baby! enough said.

So this Summer is looking to be a great one on the band front. Unfortunately for those eager to get their tickets this concert has only just recently sold out. Roll on November!

Sneak preview of the B52's in action:

hey dad! greatest show ever?

Was Hey Dad the greatest tv show ever to hit our tv screens? I'd like to suggest yes. But who was the funniest and most likeable character on the show? For me it really had to be Nudge. The man was a true Aussie legend and was quite clearly the funniest man this country has ever seen. Some of his one liners were simply briliant.

On the other hand however there was Betty. Clearly not the brightest light in the harbour but still pulled out the funnies show after show afer show.

Why are we asking these questions I hear you ask? well to honour the greatness of the show we have decided to make a hey dad t-shirt in some capacity. Take the poll on our homepage so we can find out who was your favourite character from the show. Watch some of hey dad here: ">

Free publicity woohoooooooo!

Thanks for the free publicity Mr Vintage! we at klub retro love a good publicity stunt and this one has been a master stroke. The new website launch contained a lot of initial similarities to their website which we intended in order to stir their proverbial pot. (You'll notice a lot of these similarities disappear over the weeks to come as we put our own stamp on our website which was always our intention.)

We'll from here on in let our product do the talking but we love it when a good plan comes together. We have seen our hits go from 500 a day to literally being tripled over night. We all know any publicity is good publicity as we made our very own appearance on their blog check it out:
