New Values

 ... thankyou Iggy Pop. Am back from a long trip overseas (where it was very bloody cold) with a head full of ideas. I mastered my new album Wine Island coupla weeks ago and am very happy, nay, excited with the result. It's a double album, two sides of quite different material:

side 1 Bianco is a rockin' affair with a nod to my formative years as a player, channeling ZZ Top, Kraftwerk, Chuck Berry, Roxy Music, Devo and others.
side 2 Rosso is gentler, more spacious, pulling in elements from Scott Walker, Leon Russell, Beatles (with Billy Preston), Stylistics et al.

It will be available on CD & iTunes mid August and on vinyl soon after. I'll be embarking on a national tour with a band of my fave musicians Sept/Oct/Nov so keep an eye on dates page.

Meanwhile I'm finishing up producing an EP for young Australian singer/songwriter AC Danger Monaro and mid way through a new album for Bernie Hayes. Keep an eye out for Companion by Sunnyboy front man Jeremy Oxley which I produced with him and also the wonderful documentary about his life The Sunnyboy which is premiering at Sydney Opera House in June as part of Vivid Festival. See youse all on the mean streets... Brendo
