The release follows the announcement of the group's forthcoming Australian tour and the pending release of their first mini-LP Someone Said that Someone Said which is out 5 May.
Later that month, Lindy Morrison will receive a Lifetime Achievement Award at the Queensland Music Awards.
A lot has happened since Lindy Morrison [The Go-Betweens/drums] vowed never to see Rob Snarski [Blackeyed Susans/vocals/guitar] perform again. Morrison approached the singer-songwriter post show, having attended a liquid lunch and feeling a tad vulnerable, she berated him for embracing sadness and lacking up-tempo, finger-snapping, melodic numbers. En garde!!
Not long after, the two began performing around the country in duo mode - before roping in ‘Evil’ Graham Lee [Triffids/pedal steel], Shane O’Mara [Rebecca’s Empire/Chris Wilson/Silversound/guitar] and more recently Dan Kelly [nephew of Paul/bass] to form ‘sooooopergroup’ ...
After touring briefly together, arguing incessantly along the way, they somehow agreed to record a batch of new songs Snarski had been conjuring with this band in mind.
So, with the new mini-album Someone Said That Someone Said in their pocket the group of misfits hit the road in the depths of Australia’s autumnal months to play their new tunes including “Shane O’Mara Wore Mascara”, “Since I Slept With You Everybody Wants To Sleep With Me” [a co-write with Lindy] and take a deep dive into Snarski’s less humourous, narrative driven, song writing past.
Someone Said That Someone Said is out May 5 digitally with the CD to follow May 19 via MGM Distribution. It can be preordered directly from Rob Snarski via the Snarski Shop or Bandcamp now:
