Touching Elbows tour

I just had this interview today and the interviewer informed me that it’s impossible to touch your own elbows together. i tried it and i’m sure it worked, at least on the side bits. anyway….

just wanted to tell you that we’ve planned a little trip around this country of ours that someone a long time ago named ‘Terra Australis’ which was then modified to save ink to ‘Australia’. this trip in particular is to celebrate the release of the single Elbows, which if you look at the history of popular radio hits doesn’t really fit the catchy, instant category. for a start it’s over 5 minutes long. i thought about lying like Phil Collins did with ‘something in the air tonight’ but with the advent of digital technology and with it the CD player time counter i didn’t think i’d get away with it. thankfully our friends at triple j and other community stations have seen fit to play it anyway. I’ve heard it described using adjectives such as charming and poignant but i think when you consider that it’s about a drunk person staring at a beautiful actress it’s also a bit creepy.
Anyway, i’ll be joined on this trip as always with Bree Van Reyk on drums. Cory Gray is also visiting again from Portland to lend his old world piano stylings. Simon Wooldridge is taking a break from editing Rolling Stone magazine to play some bass and drink our rider.
