HUGO RACE

FATALISTS - "TAKEN BY THE DREAM" ALBUM LAUNCH

 

Hugo Race, ex- Bad Seed and Wreckery founder, composer, producer and author returns with a new album from his  "Fatalists" project.

 Never one to sit still, Race, follows his recent excursions into world electronica (Dirtmusic's 'Bu Bir Ruya' and 'Gemini 4'), 21st century blues ('John Lee Hooker's World Today') with  a selection of modern folk songs on his latest album, "Taken by a Dream".

 The album is a cinematic tapestry of complex emotional states illuminated by mercurial moments of dazzling light and grace. Recorded in Sicily, Taken by The Dream is an album with a dark, nocturnal mood, characterised by pieces where the melodies, always tinged with a certain melancholic fatalism, float in textural and musical scores, crossing hypnotic rhythms with guitars of all kinds, sounds in reverse, organ, piano, keyboards and violins.

DAVE GRANEY & CLARE MOORE

SAT 15th June 8:30pm

Dave Graney & Clare Moore return with their brand new album from Dave
Graney & the mistLY, "ZIPPA DEEDOO WHAT IS/WAS THAT/THIS?" -already a
classic rock'n'roll album.

Classic if you lived through what has become known as "the classic
rock era" as it rolled out new and even broke onto the beachhead and
morphed into punk. That's the direction Dave Graney and Clare Moore
have always been coming from. They have spent their lives schooled by
and immersed in rock 'n' roll culture. Neither attended higher
education and they dived in deep and kept swimming. From the Moodists
through the Coral Snakes /White Buffaloes to the mistLY
Featuring Stuart Perera who has played guitar with them since 1998 and
Stu Thomas on bass since 2004 this is album number 33 (approx.) from
Graney and Moore
From the homage to the baddest droog that ever threw shade on both
Life, Death and breakfast - ULTRAKEEF, to the "sou'westing ballroom
jam" that is the 8 minute + "Is That What You Did?" through the soft
fusion chordal folding trick that is "Where's My Buzz?" it's an album
steeped in lore, myth and musical language as much as lyric power.
Graney's voice is up in the mix and the guitars, drums and bass have
real tension, energy and bounce.
Eight songs done thirteen ways.
What Is that?
What Was This?

MATT JOE GOW

Sat 4th April 8:30pm

Very few artists wield so much charisma that they can sell you just about anything before you’ve realised what’s happened. Matt Joe Gow has the charisma to be one of those artists – but he isn’t.

Having performed around Australia from The Sydney Opera House toThe Queenscliff Festival Blue Train, Matt prefers to concentrate on the conviction.You don’t have to listen to more than thirty seconds of Matt’s debut 'The Messenger' to appreciate that.And that voice. Rich, resonant. A baritone cloak of many shades and shadows.A songwriter whose swagger has taken him from the dusty influences of Johnny Cash, Ryan Adams and others, to the swirling urban chime of electric, ambient rock . . . and now, back again.

 Matt Joe Gow returns with his 6 piece band in tow to play songs from his latest album ‘Seven Years’.A diverse set of songs from heartfelt americana belters through to spacious ballads.‘Seven Years’ contains seven years worth of Matt Joe Gow’s finest work.

JESS PARKER & THE TROUBLED WATERS

Sat 30th March 8:30pm with RUM FOR LEGBA

JP & THE TROUBLED WATERS

Since their inception in early 2017, Jess Parker & The Troubled Waters have been cooking up a unique
brew of Tarantino-esque desert blues and dark Australiana, captivating and possessing audiences along the
way. Their debut EP 'Goin' Swimming' released in March 2018, received wide support on community radio
incl. a live in-studio performance on 3CR. Highlights in their short time include sold out shows supporting
Cash Savage & The Last Drinks and Cable Ties, and King Wolf, and playing 3 packed shows at the Bendigo Blues & Roots Festival all while writing and honing their sound in countless dimly lit bars across Australia.

RUM FOR LEGBA

Bringing their atomic, hypnotic rock n' roll blues to the humble Major Toms Stage, Rattlin' Bones Blackwood and Fowlmouth are a true force to be reckoned with.
Hailing from the regional swamps of the Victorian outskirts, they are professionals in the art of voodoo-driven fuzzed out sonic medicine, their live performance a true vibrational excorcism.
