Well as usual it has been a while………….. I am not a very consistent Facebooker, Instagramer or Twitterer. It’s possible there is a snap chat account in my name but I really couldn’t be bothered finding out. I figure that there is enough noise around in this world without me adding to it unnecessarily. Anyway, today, here I am. Pretty much when I need to share some information with you I will yell out, but otherwise you are not going to see what I had for breakfast, my amazingly large hair or the great new paint job I have done on my Datsun 200B.
So the good news is that I am in the final stages of a new album which will be out sometime mid year. I won’t bore you with too many details but I have been recording over the last few months with my old friend and colleague Nick Didia who produced most of Powderfinger’s best work. We’ve been having a ball and i am anxious to get it out there for everyone to hear it. There’ll be more (vital, social media worthy) info coming on that over the next few weeks and months.
In the meantime we announced a show at Bangalow A&I Hall on the 19th of May where we will showcase some tunes from the upcoming album. It should be fun as it’s a small venue in a beautiful part of the world. Straight after that we are heading to Kununurra to play at the Ord Valley Muster on the 21st. Despite 25 years of trekking back and forth across this country I have still never made it to the North West so we are dying to get up there to play and then have a squiz around the fabled Kimberley region. We’ll be playing a bit of new stuff in our set up there too.
Both of those shows are on sale now and there are some links and details on the live show page.
Have a Happy Easter everyone and I’ll be in touch.
