I have finally worked out this streaming situation. I’m sad I can’t reach you all this year so this seems like the only other option. It’ll be beamed out to you from the Majestic Theatre in Pomona on Saturday 19th Dec at 7pm, it’s a place that’s very special to me. And it’ll actually be live! No chance to edit out lyric lapses and broken strings. And there’ll be a chance for you to request songs (or heckle) from the comfort of your lounge rooms.
This means you’ll be able to watch it at 5pm in WA, 8am in the UK, 11am in Estonia… and that covers all my major markets. Sadly in the US it’ll be the wee hours of the morning, you’d have to be keen to actually watch it live. So for that reason, and anyone else who has plans that night, you’ll be able to stream it anytime for up to two weeks after the fact.
Shelley Short will sing some songs too, and there’s the possibility of other guests. Truly hope you’re able to dial us into your Xmas period!
Individual tickets are $20, with a $30 option if you feel like chipping in for the whole family. Once tickets are purchased you’ll be emailed instructions and an exclusive code which will give you access on the day.
Sadly I can’t do my usual national tour this year. The first time in 16 years I have to stay put. I’ll be playing this handful of shows around SE Queensland and all the venues have Covid safety procedures in place. I’ll be playing solo and bringing the family with me for a few singalongs. Hope to see you.

BURIED COUNTRY LP
Here’s the latest release on my label Flippin Yeah Records. It’s an LP compilation of Aboriginal country songs.
Comes with a 36 page booklet.
Black Allan Barker – Take Me Back
Galarrwuy Yunupingu – Gurindji Blues
Warumpi Band – Jailanguru Pakarnu
Kankawa Nagarra – Yanany Baliba
The Kooriers- Sick of Being Treated like a Mangy Old Dog
Jimmy Little – The Coloured Lad
Brown Bros – Black and White cat
Dougie Young – They Call it Cut a Rug
Maisie Kelly – My Home in the Valley
Harry Williams & the Country Outcasts – Streets of Fitzroy
Bobby McLeod – The Resurrection
The BURIED COUNTRY LP will cost $35 and you can order it through the Flippin Yeah Records website HERE!
All copies will be mailed out on Friday October 19th. Given the size of the book it’s a heavy LP to send and we’re trying to combate the rising prices of Australia Post and so are using Sendle to mail all domestic orders at a $12 flat rate nationwide.
LIMITED CDS AVAILABLE
Although this is officially a vinyl only release I realise that most people that contributed to the liner notes don’t own a record player so I’ve printed up a limited number of CDs to send to them.
So we’re offering 100 CDs for sale ($15 with free post in Oz) to the general public. The CDs are in basic cardboard wallet sleeves and have no liner note information. Get one HERE.
If you still wanna own the booklet as well the CD we have 50 book/CD packages only ($25 + $8 post in Oz). Get both book and CD HERE.
As the LP was pressed in the US we’re offering reduced shipping ($4!!) on the LP while I’m here to do it. I also have other merch with me (t-shirts, CDs, zines) so if you wanna bundle Buried Country with other items please email: firstname.lastname@example.org before you order and we’ll let you know if I have what you’re after.
