So, I’ve got one. Who else?


Sounds good so far. It’s not Oils, but it’s not a million miles off. On first listen I’d cite Breathe as the album it most reminds me of – a very raw, live sound. No Placebo is my favourite song so far. As well as all the new songs he’s written since doing his book, there are a couple of old leftovers – one track credited as Garrett/Hillman and one Garrett/Moginie/Rotsey.


I caught a half hour special on Music Max the other night about the recording of the album which was quite interesting – everyone involved interviewed, apart from Martin “Mr Silent” Rotsey of course.  If you’ve got Foxtel keep an eye out for a replay.


I’ve got tickets to the first show of the tour in Perth next week, so looking forward to that.
