    I was looking for something different then the known Australian bands, and found the Paul Colman Trio, this is called Run.

    Evening folks - well it’s taken the best part of a month, but my internet woes finally seem to be sorted - hallelujah!

    I suspect this won’t be the only version of this one you’ll hear over the next week - such a good song and the first that sprang to my mind.

    Cheers for hosting Ryan!

    Here's one from me. Powderfinger are my favourite Aussie band, in my all time top 10 bands, and Odyssey Number 5, which this song is from, is in my top 5 albums. I really wish I'd had the chance to see them live.

    Let me explain about the drum... y'see Bernie and Christopher got their prizes already, but yours was a bit bigger and it didn't fit in the same size box.. It's on its way soon.

    As I'm sure you know, Angus and Malcolm were themselves expat Brits brought to Australia when they were children too.

    We’re just into Tuesday here in the UK so it’s only appropriate that I post this one now. I originally wrote this song for Linda Turtledrum’s excellent ‘Eight Days A Week’ season last year. I’d always planned to rework it at some point, and as the lyric revolves around the protagonist’s (unexpected) return home it seems to fit Ryan’s theme this week. I asked Kevin (Mezcalero) to take the lead vocal and to add some electric uke magic to my keyboards, rhythm and backing vocal. Once again he rose to and far exceeded the challenge wonderfully as you’ll hear for yourselves. (The rural photos in the video I took in the late summer of some of the countryside near to where I live in the very south east corner of the country - it’s very flat here but very peaceful and beautiful.)

    thank you for hosting mate
    an original song for the season written and recorded today about the most special place to me in the whole world
    the pictures/films are from the most recent trip that joo, zacko & me took down there in January this year



    DENNES POINT, BRUNY ISLAND

    As a young boy I remember driving south from Hobart town
    My shirt stuck wet to the vinyl w/ all the windows down
    Mum & Dad up front w/ me in the backseat pining
    For the beaches and the water of Dennes Point, Bruny Island

    Every Christmas, every Easter & some weekends 'tween the two
    We'd drive up on the Mirambeena hoping to get a top deck view
    & we'd set out 'cross the channel, spreading out the foam
    On the way to Dennes Point Bruny Island, my second home

    All us relatives we'd gather for barbecues & beers:
    A specky in the breakers! & all the uncles & aunties cheered!
    & then us kids'd strip off & swim out on the tide
    Though the water it was freezing none of us did mind

    My father built a shack there & he sold it for a song
    I miss him like the sunrise these three years now he's been gone
    & my love is like a candle flame that's burning ever brighter
    For the days we spent together at Dennes Point, Bruny Island

    Now mum she's growing older, I guess we're growing older too
    & our days are growing shorter like the days they tend to do
    I'll always be that little kid there in the backseat pining
    For the beaches and the water of Dennes Point, Bruny Island

    I ask for leniency from the host. I honestly thought this guy was Australian - turns out he was born in the UK, but spent many years there, enough to sound the real deal.
    I first heard Gerry Hallom 30+ years ago, when he was a regular floor singer at a folk club in York, and playing at clubs all over the country. He mostly did songs from or about Australia, and always impressed me. This song is from the one CD of his that I have (he had a few LPs out in the good old days of vinyl - not sure how many of them made it to CD). This one is one of his non-Aussie songs, inspired by a poem by Maya Angelou.
