26 September, 2013

At ‘Literati Co

…instead of creating an album that is instantly or easily likeable, Ireland has tried to just do something honest.

At ‘The Music

…give it some time, let it sink in nice and slow, and you might just find yourself moved by something just a bit different, and a bit beautiful.

A couple of Liddy Reviews

11 July, 2012

These reviews are from the Jonathan Boulet support gig with Wolf Cub and Liddy at the The Metro Theatre, Sydney, on June 30.

Andrew Yorke writes:

…sporting cycling jerseys, the sextet perform stompy, churny, shouty, country-tinged, whiskey-soaked blues… the audience is left to their own devices in the longish gaps between songs, creating a relaxed vibe akin to watching a group of friends jam in a loungeroom.

Read the article here (thebrag.com). “new project” lol.

Jessie Hunt writes:

…appeared a little disinterested in the whole performance, with their bass player spending most of the set with her back to the audience. However, the band’s incredibly impressive cover of the Bob Dylan track The Lonesome Death Of Hattie Carroll made up for everything…

It seems like most, if not all, the R.L. Jones band are currently part of the Joseph Liddy & The Skeleton Horse lineup. The band seems to be gaining some momentum at the moment.

Ps, if you have never heard of Jonathan Boulet, give this a quick listen:


Lyrics: As I Go to See Janey

09 July, 2012

And there’s six Spanish sailors
Drifting aimless
Through the moonlit bay
Of sweet Marseilles

And there’s a broken feeling
But nobody’s bleeding
Any secrets
To the night

As I go
To see Janey
She is lonely
In the moonlight
In the churchyard

And the guards are restless
Thinking of the princess
She’s been shivering
Warm evening

And they say she’s dying
And all the men are crying
As they raise the flags
To the wind

As I go
To see Janey
She is lonely
In the moonlight
In the churchyard

To see Janey
She is lonely
In the moonlight
In the churchyard

Thanks Steve G for contributing these lyrics.

themusic.com.au reviews R.L. Jones and friends’ Old Museum gig

28 June, 2012

Read the review here, written by Mitch Knox.

He seems to know what the songs are called. Perhaps a set list was nabbed.

  • On The Bayou
  • Hammertime
  • Everybody Wants To Be Your Friend
  • It Could Be Alright

BTW I missed the first two bands. I thought Pete Cullen was awesome…
