From the same series of recordings under the Arc at Earth Media Studios featuring the signature sound of guitars in different tunings. This one is again from Gordon.

Bears

Written somewhere between ’79 and ’81. This was one of my first songs written for the ARC. Recorded at Earth Media Studios on 3/4″ tape in the good old days one take recordings with no pitch adjustment. Great harmonies from Gordon and Craig made this song what it is.

Waterbird

A few weeks ago we went through a number of tapes and pulled some old classics into the system. This is one of Gordon’s songs captured live at either the Commercial or the Park Hotel.

This is not the way

Here’s one for the Splinters page. This is myself, Gordon, Mike Slattery and Kim Stubbs wandering through ‘This is not the way’.

Recorded at Ryde on the same day as ‘Stronger than the sun’.

Sweet Company

Well here’s an absolute corker and one for the record books. Gaz and I heard this tonight for the first time in 25 years and we had shivers up our collective spines from start to finish. Kept playing it over and over and over. Wish we were back on that stage. Happy listening to all of you who remember……Gordon.

This love is

Spent some time going through old tapes today and came across this one of Gordon and I working through a song that had just been written by yours truly some 20-25 years ago. We were at Gordon’s place then and had a couple of run throughs, Gordon plugged in some extra verses and lo and behold our first co-written song. Recorded on the fly, a jam session that worked out well.

A new version of the song is currently in the works and it sounds something like this

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.
