No One Knows

Here’s an unearthed gem from Craig. This was one of my favourites from the latter days of the band. I believe this is a rehersal take, (working out guitar bits and getting the drive right). Recorded on the fly, ’84 at lower Rankin St. Hope you enjoy. Also added to; Splinters | A Book for […]

No hiding place for a good comment.

To good to be left hiding on the ‘About’ page so I’m throwing this comment of Gordon’s up front. As Gordon says we’ve spent some time going through the 100+ tapes we have between us and found a goldmine of un-recorded, un-finished, un-plugged songs, many that I had forgotten, and that’s bad, because I wrote […]

Across the mountains

Searching through some old material amongst discs that wouldn’t play on the mac (but we managed to get some things off) and tapes that hadn’t been ported across and found this old gem written by Craig. Remember, this is 1985-6-7 (not really sure). Recorded to tape, as a rough demo (at Harley’s place?) with a […]

Ah yes…Hardwood Falls…

We did ask….. and here is the first of what will no doubt be many, flying reminisces, pulp fictions and autobahns. Craig (Slim) Simpson, Gary Poulton and Gordon Slattery… It was not for nothing that their worlds collided, dimensions shifted, the planets aligned and all caution was thrown to the winds. In a world of […]

A little nostalgia

Somewhere back when the earth was still green, a couple of lads hanging out in the urban sweatfields of Sydney found themselves far, far  away………..but this was before then.
