INTERVIEW: Lucinda Williams

LIVE REVIEW: C.W. Stoneking, Peter Bibby @ Manning Bar, Sydney (30/10/15)

Peter Bibby graced the stage in solo format for his opening set and he’s increasingly becoming a rambling rambunctious storyteller. Looking like a homeless Jeffrey Lee Pierce and dispensing his brand of Dylanesque Australian larrikin song he charmed the audience with plenty of songs from his last album including fan favourites Hates My Boozin’, Cunt … Continue reading

LIVE REVIEW: C.W Stoneking, Fraser A. Gorman @ Metro Theatre, Sydney (14/11/14)

Fraser A. Gorman was subject to the vagaries of a Sydney audience who seemed more concerned with chatting about their day than soaking up his solo opening set.

NEW MUSIC: CW Stoneking ~ Get On The Floor

CW Stoneking is back with the single from his new album Gon’ Boogaloo, his first since Jungle Blues in 2008. ‘Get On The Floor’ finds him mixing up a glorious cacophony of swing, boogie, blues and rock ‘n’ roll. It’s infectious stuff with suitably lo-fi and raw production, recorded live over 2 days with 2 microphones to … Continue reading
