One of Australia’s great bands of the 80’s is back by popular demand and will be doing a very special show for Lithgow Halloween 19.
The band is excited! “It’s kind of like we are playing a big private party. We’ll do a whole bunch of Cockroaches songs from our albums as well as songs that we’ve always loved to play as well as some modern songs as we’ve got some youngsters playing with us”, enthuses lead singer Paul Field.
The one man who was actually paid to sleep on the job with The Wiggles, Jeff Fatt adds, “we know if people come along that they’ll have fun. See you there!”

Madam Fatalé all grew up in the Sydney/Blue Mountains area. They are very excited to be playing Lithgow Halloween for the first time. They are the nonchalant, carefree pop-punk darlings of the Blue Mountains music scene. Featured on Triple J’s popular Unearthed section, Madam Fatalé are poised to release a double single and 7 track EP.
The name Dingo Gringo harks to the global electro Cumbia and up vibe dance feel of much of the music.
Besides his Gondwana band Charlie has toured and performed with the likes of Midnight Oil, Sunrise Band, Bart Willoughby, Janes Addiction and Carlos Peron. His recorded music is often used as a sound track to evoke an Oz essence and played on sound tracks of Mad Max and Priscilla Queen of the Desert.
Charlie has a long association with Indigenous folk and was the opening act for PM Keating’s historic Redfern Speech in 1995. While being well versed in traditional lore, Charlie’s work is contemporary and Arnhem Land elders credit him for inventing complex and interesting ways of playing Didj’. He invented the pitch shift Didjeribone which is a joint venture with Qld artist Tjupurru.
Peters’ background is in arts and activism. In 2016 he produced the epic ‘Do it Ourselves Culture’ documentary that told a story of activism as it blended with dance music in Australia since the early 90’s. He co-created ‘Ohms Not Bombs’, an urban/outback travelling sound system project which were active in the 90’s and 00’s fusing events with various environmental and social justice issues.
In Dingo Gringo he plays samples and programmes the bands tracks.
