There are still good seats left in both theatres. We are not sure how long it will be before the band gets back to play in either city after these shows, so we are hoping to see everyone this time round, and play some good long sets.

After that there’s Bluesfest, Bendigo, Melbourne Recital Centre (selling fast), Brisbane, Cairns and Caboolture.

NEVER BEEN SAD VIDEO


“Lissome Pete, Angelica apple cheek, ever the inheritors, you don't strike as mild or meek

Just a genre, fodder, no canon, you read like a dunny wall I don't want to read at all...”


The video for ‘Never Been Sad’ from Havens Dumb sees the band working again with Ben Saunders, who made the wonderful clips for 'The Vineyard', 'Little Wonder', 'The Cold Acre' and 'One Crowded Hour'.
 
The Guardian is hosting it as an exclusive, you can view it here.
 
The video was shot on the green fields of a farm in Victoria and features ‘the kids of Jan Juc'. As for the song itself, here’s what Glenn says about its conception:

"Grumpy old man song probably had its first flash in the sun-drenched courtyard of Preachers bar in Battery Point, surrounded by perky Young Liberals who were just beginning to scent the winds of change to come, fresh loads of premium Sandy Bay manure in preparation for dumping over the existing desiccated turd puzzle. The insidious are always so very nice at the first meeting. In that ozonic (not yet animalic) field, dazed by early afternoon red beer and the sensory marina of interchangeable Calvin Klein aquatics, this pretty misery guts of a tune had its divine spark flinted.”


AN HOUR OF ADAM AND DAVE

Recently Adam and Dave hosted a show on Double J for a full hour playing songs from Melbourne and beyond. To hear the sort of rapport that only comes with a lifetime of repartee, go here.

 
See you round
