Southbound

Back after a 7 week hiatus - a Sunday Special.
Pieced this thing together in one afternoon from some old words I wrote a long time ago - driving from near Byron Bay to Sydney. Scared of my dodgy 1986 van's speed-wobbles and thinking about music and travel.
Likely come back to this in the future and re-scrub a few rough edges for a seperate release, but I'm happy with the result smile

I'm thinking of presenting my own personal WeeklyBeats 2018 - Best Of show, at the 2019 Adelaide Fringe Festival, with a live band and some sort of visual element. Recounting this years' experience, and also coming home strong after missing a chunk of songs in the middle of this year.

Thanks for listening!
Southbound.
Boosting on the A1
Things are always changing,
Good things have just begun.
Images.
Of a fiery death flash past -
But I've gotta drive fast.
I've got a show to make and she's waiting.
In the back of my mind -
Where I'll always find her.

Southbound
Lightfoot and well fed.
Like a raging bull, charging where I turn my head.
Southbound
Changing lanes in the pouring rain.
Coming in hot!
And making it back again.
Sydney side
Lookin' down the harbour.

Well now this is just amazing. Great guitar, great drums, great vocals. I particularly like the drum patterns in the beginning (it seems to lose some flair at the end).
