Editor’s Note

Take a listen to ‘Just Call’ and you’re going to meet a very different John Butler Trio than the one you’re used to. We’ve got the man himself on our cover this week, and he takes us behind the scenes of this new direction. Julia Zemiro also chats all things Rockwiz Live, The Superjesus get nostalgic, we prep for new music from The Living End and You Me At Six, and we get you set for a good times only Grand Final day.

On a sadder note, this week Beat Magazine bids adieu to our fabulous content king James Di Fabrizio. If you’ve had a chuckle over a meme, learned something from an online article, or generally enjoyed any of Beat’s online faces, then you have Jimmy to thank.

In this editor’s chair I have a shitload more to thank him for than that, but there isn’t enough space to convey how truly brilliant he is. Just know Beat will bloody miss you!
