What people have been saying about "You're Not Rob Snarski / Crumbs From The Cake" ...
"An absolutely superb collection of vignettes about life 'n' music. Poignant, insightful and frequently moving."
Stuart Coupe (Music journalist, 2SER Dirt Music Presenter)
"Rob Snarski's book is not only an illuminating, witty and often touching insight into the life of working musician ... but it also casts a keen eye over our Australian music scene."
Brian Nankervis (Rockwiz, ABC774 Friday Revue Presenter)
Clare Bowditch invited me to share a guilty musical pleasure on her afternoon show on ABC 774 recently. Unusual in that after I chose the song, I realised it was the very first song I remember coming into my consciousness as a little kid - well, other than the nursery rhymes or songs my mother would sing. What was the song you ask..?
'Twas ... "The Green ,Green, Grass of Home".
Clare and I sang the song as a duet, and yes Clare Bowditch truly sings like a bird, weaves a melody effortlessly, quite incredible really. Listen for yourself here ...
See you in Adelaide,
