 More Info

 

"The NicholasBuilding is a crazy old place.
 
 
It occupies one of the most prominent corners in the city overlooking such Melbourne icons as Flinders Street Station, St Paul's cathedral, Young & Jackson's Hotel and the new Federation Square. Yet instead of being tenanted with flash modern offices it is filled with a motley collection of artists, designers, rag traders, jewellers and others practising often obscure crafts in secret little spaces.
 
 
I have had a room in the building since 1994, attempting to make a living out of pursuits involving music, graphic design or a combination of both. It ain't always been easy ... but it’s never been dull!
 
Around the corner from my workspace on the eighth floor, just past a couple of jewellers, an art gallery, a chiropractor and a milliner, is the studio of David Rogers.
 
Initially trained as an architect, Dave instead fell into the world of movie­making. He moved into the building at about the same time as I did in order to set up a base for his video production company, Vanishing Wilds.
 
 
Always a bit of a music nut, Dave found himself gradually being drawn to the audio side of his video production work and, a couple of years ago, decided to build a dedicated sound studio in the windowless ex-storeroom that adjoined his office. Employing his architectural, building and scavenging skills he single-handedly built a sound-proofed, acoustically perfect recording room. I watched and admired his progress until one day, shortly after my wife and kids had left to visit my in-laws in Perth; I suggested we do a session.
 
After performing music in one guise or another for the best part of thirty years, I had recently fallen into orbit again with my old pal, guitar maestro Andrew Pendlebury.
 
 
Andrew and I both started our professional musical careers together in 1976 playing country and rock'n roll with the Carrl Myriad band at the legendary Station Hotel, Prahran. We both then diverged into various, different pop pursuits of the day until re-uniting again in The Slaughtermen in the mid to late 80s.
 
 
The Slaughtermen were an eccentric hybrid of country, Southern gospel and inner city pub rock that provided a showcase for some of Andrew's more fiery and inspired guitar work. Since that time we have both veered towards solo careers, playing the blues, whilst occasionally doing what has been necessary (and enjoyable!) in other bands.
 
Nowadays with Andrew, as always, our different rhythms and intuitions lock in, we're off and away and there's no stopping us. It's heartfelt, it's joyful, and its fun ... we make music as only two players with an extensive history together can.
 
 
This then is a recording of what emerged from us one night in David Rogers' Vanishing Wilds studio. And, just as they say in the movies, 'no animals were harmed in the production of this recording', no artificial reverb, compression or audio processing was utilized either. This is real sound and real music. Sit back and enjoy! "
