Steve Tyson is doing what good, indy musicians do: hitting the road to tour a new album.
‘Green Side Up’ is the new record and from Byron Bay to Port Phillip Bay, returning via Wagga Wagga, Canberra and Wongawilli Wongawilli Wongawilli and Marrickville.
A lot of miles and a lot of different beds! And lots of new faces, new fans and the CD stocks starting to deplete as Steve Tyson and the band wend their back up past Taree, Forster, Tuncurry, and a thousand blanky roadworks.
The album has already had great reviews and you can see what all the fuss is about at the upcoming gigs.
On Remembrance Day 2014, a very tired Bill Quinn rang from the Kingsgrove RSL to speak with a slightly more chipper Steve Tyson, then lounging around the Curly Flat Winery at Lancefield.
The sound quality is a little rough and red-dy. Which is appropriate, really.
