October 15 – Playing the Impact Events Buskers Stage with Dylan Beast at 2.30pm as part of the Spring Fling Street Festival 2017. This is the 40th anniversary of the event and promises to be a great day out. I’m told that we’ll be right next to the Town Hall Hotel, so a perfect spot for people to have a cold one and take in some tunes!!

Live at AMR.fm – Available now!!!

EveryoneMan, what a cool night this was!! I had been meaning to get down to the studio in FOREVER but life kinda had other plans. I’ve been signed up to their site since the very early days though and always really appreciated what they do for us indie musicians – was something to finally see it all first hand and meet Gareth and Tony!!

Not to mention the other acts – Jimmy Maddon with his Cat Stevens vibed story telling, and the soul and groove of Thando, this was a fantastic evening and one I hope I’ll get the chance to do again soon!!!

Jimmy is touring Indonesia very soon, while Thando was hitting it for a string of east coast tour dates right after this – hope it goes amazing for both acts!! Great to meet you and AMR!! 😀

Some new live appearances and more!!

Hey friends, hope all is well out there!!?

As of today, Mr Rob Lundgren sang his final stuff for the next album and it’s sounding killer!! Now we’re at the stage of Skube and myself adding / tweaking guitar bits before mixing and mastering gets underway. Too early to say when this baby might be released, but I’ll be sure to keep you posted!!

I’ll be playing live acoustic at The Eltham Hotel, here in Melbourne on May 27 at 8pm!! Click here for directions and note that there is very likely to be more events happening that same week.

Also, I was recently asked by my mate Dan Verkys, the fantastic fellow that does the artwork on music releases for me if I’d like to play some tunes at his forthcoming exhibition called Chaos Dreaming, which is running at the Mad Gallery from August 16 – September 16. You should definitely make sure you get along to this if you’re in Victoria over that time. This man is an amazing talent!!!! Click here to RSVP via the Facebook event!

Upcoming Live Appearance!! (Updated March 10th, 2014)

If you’re in Melbourne this coming Saturday night, I’ll be playing at Edwards Place in Reservoir with the mighty Irene Slade doing a few Feckers tunes and a few covers. As always, I’ll have CD’s with me for discounted rates.

See you there! 😀

From last nights gig at Edwards Place….

Edwards_Place_Oct_2013Had a great time last night for my first solo gig in a while at Edwards Place in Reservoir, in Melbourne’s northern suburbs. I do wonder if I jinxed it by making a few too many “Northern Suburbs Jokes” in regards to a lot of crime happening in the area in recent years though as a rock broke the window of the train I rode to get there last night!!! That shit sure wakes you up!!

Setlist was a mixture of solo and Feckers songs, and looked like this:

Here is some video of me singing “Slackers and Wankers” – funny how well this one always goes down as it’s the one with the most swearing in it!!

 

“TPCM” – Out tomorrow!!

TPCM - resizeMy next single, “TPCM” (short for This Poisonous Corporate Machine) will be hitting digital outlets tomorrow being July the 16th in Australia!!!

Despite the artwork possibly giving the vibe of a heavy track ( ? ), the single is actually another acoustic number, with the dark vibe of the cover very much intentional as the lyrics come from that kind of place.

I’m totally stoked with what Dan Verkys came up with from my rambling that I call a concept, and would definitely rate this cover as one of my all time favourites by him!!

Will have a video hitting my youtube channel tomorrow night as per usual with this set of songs. Stay tuned!!
