Shadowlands on Bandcamp

Stuart : 20 February 2012 12:00 : News

For those that have not realised yet… if you pick up Jack Howard’s new album Shadowlands on bandcamp, there are two great advantages:

  • Two bonus tracks are included – Run Like A Boy and the instrumental The Wandering Sickness.
  • The lossless FLAC files are in a 24 bit 44.1kHz format – which is higher than CD quality. Shadowlands is the first Hunters and Collectors related release available in higher than CD digital quality (!).

Elwood Dad’s Band This Saturday

Stuart : 14 December 2011 12:00 : News

Jack’s back in town…!

The Elwood Dad’s Band are making a rare public appearance this Saturday, Dec 17th, at the venerable Elwood RSL. We haven’t played in months so it could be really dodgy or really brilliant…or both at the same time! Come and hear the same old songs that we’ve been playing for ten years performed in an endearingly, drunkenly enthusiastic manner. Much drinking, dancing and Christmas cheer to be had by all. The show is free and starts 9.00ish.

Sydney Reunion Gig

Stuart : 5 December 2011 12:00 : News

The 3rd of December 2011 was a critical date for Hunters and Collectors fans. While there had been brief reunions – eight songs at Sound Relief, two for the ARIA Hall of Fame, an occasional lunch – this was the first full gig. 17 songs introduced a whole new generation to the Hunnas in the live environment.

The three great shirt designs that were available at this gig – on paper for the V8’s at Homebush in Sydney – are available for purchase. Click here to buy the t-shirts!
