Heading to WA this weekend with Mr O’Mara to play The Bassendean Hotel Fri June 21 and Aardvark [Norfolk Hotel] in Fremantle Sat June 22 ~ with special guest Catherine Traicos [who is performing in trio mode]. Also hoping Catherine will join us in song for “When will you come my way”.
I thought I’d include a pic of my WAMI award from 28 years ago. According to people present there wasn’t any footage of myself to show the audience on the night and instead played some footage of David McComb. I was overseas at the time, recording with David and Kenny Davis Jnr in London ~ songs that appeared on “Depends on what you mean by love ... “ later to be released on Welcome Stranger [The Blackeyed Susans].
Prior to all this ....
Here’s my pre-release tape of Born Sandy Devotional passed on by Chris Read from Hot Records in Sydney. I listened to this album for the first time on this very tape, in a share house on Morrissey Road, Erskineville ~ 1985, overwhelmed by their new found soundscape and David’s songwriting.
Here’s a snippet of a new tune I’ll be playing ~ oh, Castlemaine and Ballarat were my beloved guinea pigs.
See you soon ~
