Ahead of the tour, TASTE are releasing Remedy, a tender ballad featuring the voice and lyrics of lead guitarist Joey Amenta. “I was at a fork in the road. I had just fallen in love and my new partner had recently ended a relationship and needed a remedy. So I thought I’d write a love song. I started playing the chords and the word ‘remedy’ came out. That’s how love should be … a remedy for life,” says Joey Amenta.
The Remedy single is out on iTunes and all digital retailers through GoSet Music. It features an epic live rendition of Is it Just a Dream recorded at the Corner Hotel with David Hughes on the fiddle. The track listing includes the original acoustic version of Remedy.

About John Goghlan’s Trio
John Coghlan joined Francis Rossi and Alan Lancaster in their newly-formed band ‘The Spectres’ in 1962. The group went through a series of name changes, including Traffic Jam, before becoming Status Quo in the late 60s when Rick Parfitt also joined the line-up. In the years that followed, a string of chart-topping albums and an almost endless stream of hits included “Pictures of Matchstick Men”, “In My Chair”, “Paper Plane”, “Caroline”, “Down Down”, “Rain”, “Wild Side Of Life”, “Rockin’ All over the World”, and many more. For Quo fans and critics alike, this time is often regarded as Quo’s “Classic” period.
During the late nineties John Coghlan’s Quo was formed, with the prime aim being to recreate an authentic “70’s Quo Sound” in keeping with John’s time with Quo, and through various line-ups has enjoyed regular gigs all over the UK and Europe. The current band (previously performing as The John Coghlan Band) consists of John on Drums with Mick Hughes from ‘Predatür’ on guitar, Rick Chase on bass and vocals, and Rick Abbs on guitar and vocals completing the line-up.
‘John Coghlan’s Quo will take you on a joyous journey of his golden past in one of the most celebrated and much
About Ted Mulry Gang
Began in September 1972 when Ted Mulry, who had many hits as a solo artist in the earlier years, joined with guitarist Les Hall and drummer Herman Kovac and the later addition, in 1974’ of Gary Dixon on rhythm guitar .
Their first major hit, and the biggest of their career, was the 1975 single “Jump in My Car” which spent 11 weeks at number one on the Australian singles charts in 1976 and was the first Australian act to knock Abba off the number one spot. It was the second single released from the Here We Are album produced by Ted Albert at Alberts Studios. Over the next few years, they achieved a string of hit singles including a rocked up version of the old jazz song, “Darktown Strutters’ Ball”, “Crazy”, “Jamaica Rum”, “My Little Girl”, “Naturally” and “Heart Of Stone”. By late 1980 their chart success had ended but they remained popular performers on the Australian pub circuit. In 1989, after some time apart, the Ted Mulry gang reformed working consistently throughout the 1990s up until Ted was diagnosed with cancer and passed away the day before his birthday on September 1st, 2001.
The current line-up consists of Les Hall (guitar), Gary Dixon (guitar) and Herm Kovac (drums) who played on all the records and performed in all clips and TV shows. The boys dipped into the gene pool and extracted Ted’s younger brother Steve Mulry as close a voice to Ted’s you are going to get. The guys have reached out to an old mate to play bass, original Sherbet bass player Tony Mitchell.
