The Sound of Saturday

It’s been a long time since I’ve been home on a Saturday morning… had that opportunity to shuffle sleepily around the house, let the light seep through the windows and allow the contents of my skull to unwind… contemplate the potential of morning. And the music. Saturday morning has a soundtrack and this is mine…

I hope you have yours.

Scar – Joe Henry

Joe Henry, sounds like he comes from another time. His songs, have the voice of a weary traveller, telling their story in sepia tones, across an old wood bar.

 

 

The Triffids

Wide Open Road – The Triffids

Without a doubt one of the greatest Australian songs ever written. And after travelling to WA recently, this song has an even greater pull. Fremantle Press have just released Beatiful Waste, the poems of David McComb.  A must read!

    Amazing the ‘old’ faces that braved the storm for the OUTDOOR launch at Freo Arts Centre night before last!
    I’ve finally recovered enough to be reading Vagabond Holes which was also launched that night.. loved reading Nick Cave’s reminisce of he and Dave Mc Comb singing songs at each other. Both books are really great.
    Good to hear lots of those songs again too..

      Sounds like a great night… am loving the Triffids all over again at present. McComb’s voice, so big, yet tender. Wish I could have been there!
