Revisiting an oldie . . 2008 show at “Fairlight Folk” with Nik.E and Brother Matt. The tale of one mans fight to save the town from the Devil himself . . . But is he really who people think he is????
New song by brother Matt, and jammed with the 3 brothers one late winters night in the inspirational comfort of humph hall.

A take on John Lennons “Paul Bitchslap”, dedicated to our own Scott Morrison
Recently a group from the States asked permission to use “In every other world” as the soundtrack to a short video highlighting the thoughtless and soul-less damage of Coal Seam Gas mining. . . I of course agreed heartily!
I sat down before Christmas, and tried to bring Vernons masterful artwork to life.
This simple result is soundtracked by an “audio montage” of the new record.
A living-room version of a tune dedicated to JJ Glam and Luke Escombe, who in different ways inspired it, along with countless hearty souls!

Recorded this a few weeks earlier in the dark cold quiet, so thought I should take it outside.
Moving lyrics by Liam Banyer set to the vibe of Disney’s Pochahontas Classic.
Little feels as good as old disney!

I do love to sing a good ol’ cheesy love song occasionally, even if I can botch it like this.
Song from the Disney Movie “Pochahontas” with lyrics written by Liam Banyer for Australian values and magic.
Recorded at a friends unit, and trying to be quiet . . . Ha! . . excuses!
The only Buckley song I’d ever attempt, and only because I can be loud and jagged, and it kind of suits it. Though I had a bit of a memory skism in the middle.
I dig this girl. Only discovered her music recently, though supposedly the world has known for a while!
All artists were asked to perform a beatles song, though none of us knew what the others were doing . . . surely no-one would be stupid enough to try Day in the Life!?!
From the “One day at midway” session.
Based on the Teddy Thompson version.
Filmed at the Castle one quiet evening.
Yeah yeah . . it’s fast becoming the new “Stairway to Heaven” for us guitar tutors, so I thought I’d groove it up a tad.
A song written for my tardiness.
A song written for a girl with whom I shared a long distance relationship. . . I was in Collaroy . . she in Hornsby (1/2hr drive :))
It was written to be performed as a duet, though since she wasn’t at the show, I sung both parts.
With the baby version of “The Green Mohair Suits” at the 2012 Northern Beaches music festival, performing Jason Manels’ “Gardening in my Underwear” into The Boss’ “I’m on Fire”.

A clip I shot and edited in my home for a good friend, and a favourite musican of mine, Dave Calandra.
Before the souped up pickup system, I used to tune the 5th and 6th strings down a Maj 6th to try get some bottom end. This one’s with Mat and Nik.
