‘Hollywood’ drug squads over the top

I guess we have to thank Hollywood for the enduring myth that a black-clad squad of elite 'blokes', preferably with cool helicopters, from the capital are needed to crack down on really serious crime in hick parts of the country like Mullumbimby.


Twisted Fate is the new name for a group of singers who have been singing together for many years known as the Recovery Choir. The choir supports

people who are in recovery by sharing the joys of singing together. And sing they do! This choir loves singing so much they now meet twice a week.

They also promote the great work that happens at The Buttery. Not all choir members have been to The Buttery, but all members refrain from taking drugs. This creates a safe place for those looking for a choir that can support the process of recovery.

Loani McRae, who leads the choir program at The Buttery, is excited about Twisted Fate. ‘The group now has many members who are very experienced

musically and who have led the choir in new and interesting ways’, she said.

At Saturday’s concert you will hear many of their favourite songs plus The Buttery Residents Choir and solos from choir members and friends, including some original material. Soup and snacks will be available at interval. All money donated will go towards keeping the choir going and accessible for all. Twisted Fate and friends perform on Saturday at the Bangalow Catholic Hall from 5pm.

Entry by donation.
