I am making a new CD.
It is going to called Boundary Road, on account of that is where I live now.
It is a counterpart to a CD I made in Adelaide / Honiara few years back, and gave copies to a few folks, which was called Live at Home.
The style will be noisy folk, with banjo and mandolin and drums and yelling, a bit similar to some of the Luker and Southern stuff but without Emma Luker’s deft touch to stop the whole thing degenerating into anti-folk which is where the record is currently headed. Maybe one day Emma will play violin on a few tracks when I am back in Adelaide.
Here’s 2 sample tracks:
I already put up a demo of this last year. This one is better.
This continues the tradition of me getting Emma’s favourite folk tunes and kicking the crap out of them. The lyrics are about me learning to drive somewhat later than most Australian men.
