Welcome to Overheard Productions In Transition to the Overheard Group

Welcome to Overheard Productions as it currently stands, and has stood, since 6 December 2003.

However, after 36 reboots, and reduxes, and not a little redacting, we’re now in a transition phase to splut up…

Splut up? Ok, I’ve been hanging around with a LOT of Kiwis lately.

We’re splitting into a number of reasonably well-defined entities, some of which will carry the red, white, and black livery that you currently se, others that will be similar in look and feel, and others that will be duck-diving under the surface, away from view, such that if you see them, you won’t recognise they come from the same stable.

We’ll be the Woolworths or Coles of the music/entertainment/arts and toilet-cleaning world! 😉

Stay tuned! We won’t try to put a timeframe on this changeover, as that usually ends in tears. As recently as last week.

But definitely… maybe… possibly…

Surely be to goodness, mercy and light by Saturday 21 July 2017. Say around 7pm-ish at the Yacht Club! 😉 Call it a present to ourselves…

Various gods willing, inshallah, the creeks don’t rise, and the crops don’t fail.

Back to work. Can you see yourself out? Sweet.

Toodles!

Black is a Colour

As Jenny Spear and I sat down to have lunch and a chat about her new album (‘Black is a Colour’) at Digress Restaurant and Lounge in Canberra City, I proved once again that while I do like my humour and observations laced with irony and straight-facing, I can be just as thick and literal as they come.

‘You know, this album will work well across a couple of genres because there’s an old traditional folk song called, “Black is THE Colour”.

To her credit, Jenny was very polite as she shot me a look that registered the comment, but she let me come to my own learning as sometime later a question revealed, “Yeah, well, that’ll be Track Three then”.

Jenny had contacted me many months ago out of the blue, at a rather crazy time as I was bouncing around New South Wales and ACT, and we made vague plans to catch up somewhere sometime somehow.

Then one night as I stopped off at the monthly music blackboard at the Royal Hotel in Bungendore, Canberra singer-songwriter-author Chris Johnson announced Jenny Spear as the woman sitting next to him, pumping out a fair slab of Neil Young’s back catalogue with him.

In late August, Jenny and I finally caught up over some wonderful Indian pizza at Digress. We didn’t realise it at the time, but Jenny was to soon perform there as the Merry Muse club took an unusual and welcome diversion to another venue for one night.
