"WALLY" - [The Mick Thomas Song]

"The tale of a driving halfway across the state to play a show, that didn't happen! We arrived, the venue was heaving, the vibe was great!! We sound checked & went out for a pre-show walk in high spirits for the evenings 'show' ahead. Little did we know that our venue was full of hearty punters enjoying pre-show drinks to another show that night, in ARARAT of all places! Ararat can probably handle a gig a month & we realized on our walk back that all the punters at our venue warming up for their Mick Thomas show, at the another venue! So when we got back, the venue was EMPTY. They'd all gone to the Mick Thomas show, and fair play!! SO. We sat on the verandah & wrote this tune. It's a wonderful & mysterious world this songwriting thing sometimes!"

"HEATHER"

"One of my favorite songs ever penned....

A while ago I met a woman by the name of Heather Vicenti who co-authored a book http://www.toomanytearsbook.com

I read this powerful book several times after meeting her. The night we met she was at a 'Hidden Treasure's Music Festival' event we were playing in Fremantle (W.A) having a 'pony' glass of beer in the corner of the room. We dropped her home at the end of the show and she related in part her story. I went straight home and started writing this song based on Heather's story."

"RATHER BE"

"In the early days my 'job', along with writing the songs, was to find the best busking spots. I would watch the foot traffic, U.S Navy boats schedule coming into port, tourist traffic & try find the best spot for our trio to busk. It's where we ALL began as songwriters & performers. This is an ode, of sorts, to all buskers out there who find their way. I still LOVE playing this tune. "
