Alright, time for some discussion on what yr all listening too. My iTunes inventory is getting a little stale so I'm up for some inspiration.

Currently loving The Drones' album "Havilah".. incredible songwriting and some of the best recorded guitars and drum I've heard in a long time. I'm a little late to the party with this album but it's on high rotation at the moment and will probably stay there a while. I've seen these guys live once (Fowlers, Adelaide) and fortunately they're incredible on stage too. Can't wait to see them again.

Stu, Very small world. That would be Uncle, founder of the Sandon Point Tent Embassy at MacAulays Beach. I spent New Years Eve Day with him in the Royal National Park.

Two of the crew at the Yoga Camp at Otford over Xmas New Year were his niece Fleur, and her partner Lockie (has got a bone thru his nose and carved chest), they called in Uncle to take us on country, his country, for the day. He took us along cliff tops, and then up into swimming holes off the tracks. He also told the rangers to jam their $11 cos we were with him. It was awesome.

Speaking of music, Lockie and Fleur are full on into restoring their native tongues, music and dance. Mens songs, womens songs, couples songs, dreamtime songs plus their own songs in their native tongue. When they sung, husband and wife, I swear it was eternal harmonies from the heavens.

Hanging with Lockie, and of course Uncle, for me was actually much more spiritual than what was happening in the yoga camp, even tho' it was at the Krishna complex. Lockie was really cool, we talked a lot about the "clever people" of the spirit world, time & space, manhood, mother earth, all sorts, over the week.

(You should get yourself up to the Krishna complex at Govinda Valley, Otford. Its right on your door step, they have regular Iyenga classes and all sorts of stuff happening, and if you're lucky get a vego feed by Pritha, its insane.)

Plus, I figure since I know Iron Dog and now Uncle, I'm sweet at Sandon so long as I wait my turn.

Anyway, back to Frank...

Was thinkin' of old goldie spots that rocked. Playroom was up the road, for anytime under age binge drinking weekends, school mates Loved it. I never went to the Playroom much, only when necessary, nor Bombay Rock up Surfers.

Did go to The Patch and Jet Club, way too many times.

And sid, one of the biggest buzzes in music, I reckon, is when you hear an acoustic version of a song, in particular a song that was big budget produced...... When i first heard this tune, with all of it's over produced crap, I despised it,,,,, hated it...... still do....

But somewhere i came across a copy of an acoustic version...... Totally different song, man.... Chalk and cheese....... Couldn't believe it......

Nice, Southey..... Yep.... Acoustic - the song stripped down to it's essence... having a "little bit" to do with the music scene, I can assure all those that haven't, the acoustic "version" is often if not always the first version a songwriter produces... You then have "producers", "hangers on", and other vultures who want a slice of the creation pie, trying to put their little stamp on the track.... But "going back to the start", that's where the "tingles" are,,,, when spontaneous melodies, rythms and lyrics flow like honey..... Yeah..... When you are there, it's a good as surfing..... no shit....

I grew up hating Cold Chisel having to suffer our local pub full of derro's who would get pissed out and sing along to Khe San as if they were all vets, the same guys who would start swinging at you 'cause you looked at them the wrong way. I did like lots of their songs but the band seemed to embody these shitheads to me at the time. Since those days Ive come to appreciate them much more as consummate musso's and song writers. Here is Sarah Blasko doing a version of the powerful Flame Trees -

Some songs make time stand still... Now, this certainly wont be everyone's cuppa tea.... I am no fan of this artist, but her cover of this Cohen classic beggars belief... I have to give credit where credit is due.... Her vocal control, at 4.58 in particular, is phenomenal. Alot of people think this song is a "bible bashing" song, but it aint..... If you digest the lyrical content, the title has nothing to do with god. The title is a metaphor for 'love".....
It's about thrill of falling in love, then the monotony of a controlled relationship, and finally the grief of something that was once beautiful, now turned to poison.... Incredible lyrics by Cohen....

The Jolly Boys put out this rough diamond a couple of years back, an album covering some classic tunes, from Iggy's The Passenger to New Order's Blue Monday with a whole lot in between.

These guys have been around a long time, legend is they got the name The Jolly Boys when they were Errol Flynn's mento house band on his private island off Jamaica back in the mid 50s.

It's an album that can feel a little dis-jointed on the first listen, but like any rough diamond, gets better with age, and that's something these boys have plenty of.
