Tym records has worked with Peter Black before on several occasions in both his solo outings and with one of his bands, The Hard-Ons. There are many reasons for these collaborations but essentially I love Blackie's music, his attitude and his life long commitment to R'n'R..
After Peter spent 2016 working on his exhausting and very impressive "Song A Day" project where he recorded and released a song EVERY day for 2016, which Tym records released a 7" EP with his favourites and .... leftover songs, he quickly regrouped and started working on this album which was recorded in April 2017.
As well as extensive recording and touring with his main bands The Hard-Ons and Nunchukka Superfly, this is Blackies 5th solo album, but this time with a band, well, drummers. His year long quest that was the SAD project honed his skills at both songwriting and recording meaning these 12 songs could be recorded in 5 days at Pet Food Factory by Jason Whalley.
While Blackies previous solo albums were (mostly) acoustic solo performances, this LP is much more diverse and moves from simple, beautiful pop similar to his other solo albums to heavy, catchy riff laden rock more reminiscent of The Hard-Ons and Nunchukka Superfly.
This LP is a wonder of guitar driven pop by one of Australia's hardest working musicians and I'm honoured to have been given the opportunity to bring it to you on vinyl.
Blackie has appeared on TYM020, 024, 042, 052 and now TYM058 with his latest outing originally intended for cassette only release in Japan and remastered especially for vinyl by Phil Wilson for this release
