Boxed Set

What the hell was that? Now that it’s come and gone, the so called reformation tour, the once off… never to be repeated run round? No matter how many times we called it that, a “once off”, people kept asking… “Is that it?” even as I walked out the stage door at 11pm on the last Saturday night… the security guard simply wouldn’t have it. “Yeah sure. You’ll be back.” ‘Fraid not pal. That was it. And it was never meant to be that big. Things just got a little out of hand. The scale of it. What were they? Just a pub band. Whatever that is, or was. Well, whatever they were Hunters and Collectors had a bloody big sound. That strange mechanical concoction of parts, monumental, grinding, relentless graceful power. And the last of the shows, in theatres. Not the place for a pub band you say? Oddly enough, the only other time we ever played in the Palais was for the “Cut” album in 1992 and the review was awful. Pretentious, overblown… might have been Rolling Stone mag… some rock journo with an axe to grind… whatever. Funny how the ‘credibility wars’ fade into obscurity, especially when a band plays with no fear. There was an intense feeling of release… an explosion of energy. I mean, the band just launched itself at the audience right from the first chord and never backed off. The whole tour. Nothing broke down, no one lost it… oh, hang on… there was that one moment, but let’s not go there. It was as loud as it ever was and I didn’t lose my voice. I didn’t see anybody cry either. Are you kidding? And the punters sat in their seats and gazed up at us… and then, one by one, they stood, smiling, laughing, with that strange questioning gaze. What the hell was that? – Mark Seymour
