Sydney band Papaya Tree made a classy Hunters and Collectors reference in their recent interview with ToneDeaf:

What’s your go-to karaoke song?

If I’m sober: ‘Do You See What I See’ by Hunters and Collectors.

If I’m pissed: ‘Battery Farm’ by Ha the Unclear.

If I’m super pissed: ‘Do You See What I See’ by Hunters and Collectors, but better.

Mark’s New Album

Stuart : 6 November 2019 13:43 : News

Keen observers may notice that we have added an ‘Upcoming’ release of a new Mark Seymour album. Keen punters may have already known from new songs appearing live including Night Driving and Against My Will.

Either way, Mark has been working on a new studio album this year – in fact, it is already recorded. The name of the new album is “Creatures of the Deep.”

We are hoping for it to land day after the massive Red Hot Summer H&C Tour in early 2020. Our best bet at the moment is mid 2020! 🙂

Throughout 2017, Jack toured the world with Midnight Oil as the band’s trumpeter/keyboard player/percussionist. He’s also the only trumpet player in the ARIA Rock’n’roll Hall of Fame.

The Epic Brass band is sensational and features a mighty four-piece horn section. Jack is joined by a terrific cast of guest singers – Ron Peno (Died Pretty), Paulie Stewart (Painters And Dockers), Steve Lucas from X, Penny Ikinger (Wet Taxis) and Melbourne sensation, Fiona Lee Maynard, bring their style and their energy to this uniquely powerful show.

On Saturday June 2nd at the fabulous Factory Theatre in Marrickville, Jack will bring the show to Sydney for the first time.
