Pretty Shiny Christmas

I thought I would share a little unheard track from the Crazy Talk album recording sessions. We had a lot of fun recording it — rather late in the day (probably about 2am) — and after a reasonable amount of wine and beer had been sipped… we recorded ‘Pretty Shiny Frisbees’.

Best wishes for the season,

Trials and Tributes

  Helloooo! It is with icy fingers I type this missive… well, not icy, but it is quite a cold mid-winter for the North Coast of NSW. It has been an interesting time of consolidation since the Crazy Talk album was finished. Now that my mind is starting to clear a little from the haze of such a long process, I’m starting to get the CD out and about and
