SUBURBAN SONGBOOK - OUT NOW!! OUT NOW!!!!!!
hello and welcome...
I’m a Sydney-based Australian writer who since the late 70s has built up a long list across (eleven) books, television, journalism, CD productions, all sorts of stuff, mainly on local music, popular culture and social history. This old-skool site is a guide through that stuff – a combination storefront/archive/laboratory, with a NEWS feed as close as I get to despotic social media. The archival BACKPAGES and RE-MIXED sections amount to a veritable database going even deeper into (mainly Australian) music (history). I’m too old to be an enfant terrible, but with the way I still seem to be able to court controversy, I must be some sort of loose cannon! Have a look around, enjoy; link further to the standalone BURIED COUNTRY site too…
JANUARY 2022: Suburban Songbook is almost sold out of its first print-run – almost but not quite; you can can still buy copies here! – and it’s been great, to get such a reaction to my eleventh book and the first fruit of the new Goldentone imprint… So, as we enter a new year, I am working on consolidating Goldentone firstly with a reprint of SS, before GT moves into some anthologies of my previously-published journalism before it moves into… well, who knows?
