'Melbourne's Acolyte come on to (literally) much fanfare and proceed to beguile The Workers Club crowd with their lavish take on progressive rock. Apparently drummer Chris Cameron sprained the ankle on his kicking leg that day and vocalist Morgan-Leigh Brown is suffering a case of tonsillitis this night. Much kudos to both of them for soldiering on through these ailments, but none in the crowd would have guessed and both nail their performances with great aplomb. The lucid lines of keysman David Van Pelt remind one of an Animals-era Rick Wright (from Pink Floyd) and add so much colour, wash and vitality to an already broad palette of sound. This band is at a similar stage to where Figures are: just about ready to explode. In fact, both sound and perform like they are now in need of stadiums to play in.'

'A HUGE heartfelt thank you to our incredible friends/fans/media who contributed to a packed Workers Club room on Wednesday night! It was just the come back show we needed to pull us back out of hibernation. I was personally a very proud Melbournian that night, watching a packed crowd turn out from the very beginning, giving all of our incredibly talented supports a go! We are truly proud to call you home!'
- MORGAN-LEIGH BROWN
