This fun song, composed in the tradition of 12 bar blues with a rock edge to it, stays true to the blues using a local story and local colloquialisms. It was written as a music assignment at Eora College for the Arts. This song was the beginning of a great friendship between me and Rhubee Neale, who sings on the track and helped develop the story. Rhubee is a proud Anmatyerre woman from North West of Alice Springs and is a great songwriter herself. We are both very proud that this was the first track recorded at the studio at Redfern Community Centre.
words, T Bishop & R Neale
