If you were one of the lucky punters in attendance at the Townsville leg of Groovin The Moo, you might have just witnessed a soon-to-be-iconic piece of musical history, with Grinspoon’s Phil Jamieson riding his motorbike onstage to perform alongside Byron rockers Skegss.

With Skegss taking over the Cattleyard Stage early this afternoon, the Grinspoon frontman decided to give fans a sneak peek of what might go down at his band’s set later in the day by invading the stage atop his motorbike.

After dismounting the bike and leaving it at the centre of the stage, Jamieson picked up a guitar and joined Skegss by guesting on a performance of their track ‘New York California’. Needless to say, it looks to have been one for the ages.

Of course, this isn’t the first time that Jamieson has invaded a Groovin The Moo stage, with the iconic rocker joining Violent Soho at the Maitland leg of last year’s festival to cover the Grinspoon classic ‘More Than You Are’.

This onstage appearance also takes place just two days after Grinspoon made their first appearance in the Like A Version studios in ten years, where they performed a stunning cover of CHVRCHES’ ‘Get Out’. All we need now is for Jamieson and the lads to enter the studio again to record their first album in six years.

Groovin The Moo is set to wrap up in Bunbury next Saturday, before Skegss hit the road for their ‘Up In The Clouds’ tour in mid-June.
