Live and loud at GC track

The Gold Coast Bulletin - - NEWS -

SU­PER-SELLING rock band Live have revved up for the first show of their Aus­tralian tour with hot laps at a Gold Coast mo­tor rac­ing track.

Nor­well Mo­tor­plex’s Paul Mor­ris, a motorsport vet­eran, yes­ter­day hosted a Su­per­cars ex­pe­ri­ence for the rock­ers be­fore tonight’s Bris­bane gig.

Mor­ris and Live, whose Throw­ing Cop­per al­bum sold eight mil­lion, have a cu­ri­ous con­nec­tion – the band spon­sor his Su­per Truck which he races on the global cir­cuit.

The tie-up is thanks to Team United Fi­bre and Data UFD owner Bill Hynes who signed Mor­ris to race for Team UFD last year.

Mr Hynes is based in York, Penn­syl­va­nia, where Live all grew up. The Team UFD HQ has a stu­dio and record­ing space built for Live who use it as their band base.

Singer Ed Kowalzck said since meet­ing Mor­ris he’d been to many events.

“The Su­per Trucks up close and jump­ing as high and go­ing as fast as they go ... it’s on edge and it’s great for the kind of mu­sic we try to make which is on the edge, and full of pas­sion – there is a lot of pas­sion in rac­ing.”
