More info and Reviews

The Re-mains, country rock and roll renegades from Northern NSW, have released their 3rd album “Field Conditions”, and are touring Australia from June to November 2005 to promote it. This is not an unusual adventure, as the band's policy of relentless city-to-outback touring over the past three years has defined them as one of the nation's most potent live acts.

The end of  2005 will see The Re-mains fulfill an ambition that has inspired them since their inception; to leave no corner or region of the island continent untouched by the definitive sound of country rock ‘n’ roll. They are a name-check for the nation’s most respected festivals, including Woodford, the East Coast Blues and Roots and the Tamworth Country Music Festival, and are renowned in as many inner-city venues as they are on remote stations and country music halls.

The latest album is outlaw country rock and roll in its finest hour, teetering between full-tilt banjo and guitar onslaughts (My Friend The Bushranger, Motherlode) and pedal steel drenched alt-country sagas (Horse, White Dress), while the single, also released as a video clip on the Country Music Channel and Rage, “Quit Singin' The Blues”, is a crunchy country-pop ballad worthy of Creedence Clearwater, Wilco in a good mood, or for that matter, Cold Chisel.

With their last album receiving rave reviews in the national dailies (The Age, SMH, Daily Tele, Courier Mail) and high rotation on ABC radio across the country, the band have high expectations for “Field Conditions”, considering it their best work yet.

The Re-mains are:

Mick Daley, aka Jah Mean?
Chief bard and acoustic guitar punisher.

Leigh Ivin, aka Swoop Owly Owl
Steel/electric guitar maestro and insatiable aviator.

Shaun Butcher, aka Uncle Burnin' Love
The only rock ‘n’ roll banjo player in the known world.


Micheal Ward, aka Wardstock
Drummer, city slicker, and alleged mechanic.

Sam "Junior" Martin, aka The Pup
Youthful master of all things bass, he was born at the coalface.

 


 

Reviews for the Re-Mains

What the critics said:
(of their 2004 E.P. Burnin’ Daylight) “… there’s enough here to advance the argument that The Re-mains are the best country-rock band in Australia.”
Jeff Glorfeld, The Age

"Wilco and Uncle Tupelo fans will require very little convincing.."

Tom Jellet, The Weekend Australian

 “Once the Re-mains cranked up, the joint exploded from slumber to an unmissable event. We’d long heard of these kings of the road, but nobody expected that much.”

Ben Quinn, The Newcastle Herald

 “Their earlier work drew comparisons to American alt-country heroes, but I’m betting there’s a rich vein of Australian influence here. The Re-mains walk that tightrope with pride and skill.”

Music Australia Guide


”Field Conditions” is out now through Croxton records, distributed nationally by MGM and internationally by Germany's Glitterhouse Records, as is the rest of their catalogue, the critically acclaimed album “Thank You For Supporting Country Rock ‘n’ Roll” (2003)and the E.P. “Burnin’ Daylight” (2004).
