26.05.2012 Live

Probe One Music POM-11, released March 2013
We did a show in Yarraville, Melbourne in May 2012 for which we splashed out lavishly on a film crew and sound crew, with a view to making a live DVD. It marked the end of a busy period of touring, and is also the last show with Frank Packer on bass and Hayley Anderson on violin.

We made a few mistakes with the recording, the editing took an awfully long time, and it turned out nothing like I’d imagined, but I finally put together a 40 minute 10 song film of the night.

There are a few previously unreleased tracks on it that are unlikely to see the light of day elsewhere – original track The Essence, trad folk numbers Bonny Ship the Diamond and (What Shall we do with the) Drunken Sailor, as well as CC Thornley’s Gold in the Loft. DVD comes with audio download included, or it’s available as audio only.
