We just noticed this old live track from the Annandale hotel some years ago. Its an unreleased song called Angry Poets, which was about the Egyptian uprising at the time. An early version of the Blackbreaks line up, but the song goes ok we rekon – what do you think?
Thanks to Benjamin Woods and the Daily review
Sydney this next show is an important one. It’s the Sydney leg for the worldwide arts and music festival supporting West Papua. When our politicians are blindsided by mining profits it’s up to us – musicians and music lovers to take a stand, and show this long suffering community we hear them, and we care.
It’s at Waywards Bank hotel just next to Newtown Station, Friday Sept 30th. See. Youse. There.
Blackbreaks crooner Chris Dubrow is long-form Interviewed by the Radio Rehash team at Radio Blue Mountains, for 2.5 hours !!, Playing all the influences from youngster days through to the creation of Blackbreaks.
Hope y’all are ready for the mother of all interviews, by the wonderful folks over at Depth Perception Podcast (DPP)
with me, your forever shy and humble Blackbreaks singer Chris Dubrow. http://www.dppod.com/dppod-s04e04-chris-dubrow/
Only the truly dedicated may wish tackle the full 2.5 hours. But for the slightly unhinged or Australian music history buffs – it may be worth it.
But more seriously, it’s an example of the ‘long form interview’ that the folks at DPP specialise in, a genuinely fresh and in depth approach to interviewing artists and musicians that works very powerfully, and is only made possible by modern technology such as affordable storage and the blog format.
In this episode I go into my development as a musician from childhood, the early years busking and growing up around the wild St.kilda scene, the ups and downs of my previous bands the Prostitutes, Soulscraper, and iNsuRge, and finally how I was drawn back into the creative life to create Blackbreaks.
The DPP blog is well worth checking over for other interviews with many great Australian artists.
