Presented by Avoca Beach Theatre
The Whitlams' alt-country offshoot sees Tim Freedman and longtime drummer Terepai Richmond touring and recording with an A Team of roots musicians, namely Rod McCormack and Matt Fell, two CMAA Producers of the Year, and young gun Ollie Thorpe on electric and pedal steel guitar..
This marvellous new line up reconstructs The Whitlams' best known songs like 'No Aphrodisiac', ‘Buy Now Pay Later", and 'You Sound Like Louis Burdett', and plays new originals along with a batch of surprising Americana from Neil Young to Kris Kristoffersen.
The band formed at recording sessions in mid 2021, where they cut tracks that veered from campfire intimacy to rollicking country rock. In April 2022 they debuted at the Tamworth Country Music Festival and then wound their way down the East Coast from Cairns to Queenscliff in a three week tour that cemented their musical bonds.
The 2022 single "The Day John Sattler Broke His Jaw" quickly became a staple on Country radio, and their new single, which was commissioned by the Wesley Mission for a gambling helpline ad, is a poignant reworking of Freedman's 1999 hit "Blow Up the Pokies". With 55 Gold Guitars and 10 ARIAs between them, this band should not be missed.
