Fatal crash near Coffs

Andrew Morris unveiled his sixth solo release The Situationist in October and will tour the east coast throughout October and November.

Inspired by Tom Hodgkinson’s counter-consumer-culture manifesto How To Be Free, Morris summoned as many of the members of The Gin Club as he could muster and put on the beers at his newly set up northern rivers home studio. The Situationist is what ensued, a collection of warm and spontaneous gems.

Reflecting his current solo shows, The Situationist includes live favourites such as Dylan’s It Takes A Lot To Laugh, It Takes A Train To Cry, Gillian Welch’s Look At Miss Ohio and Tim Rogers’s (You Am I) Heavy Heart.

It is completed by an acoustic reworking of Lover from Morris’s Needs & Wants album and a handful of new originals, including The Uplift, featuring some of Banjo Paterson’s writing set to music.

Known for his work with The Wilson Pickers and Bernard Fanning, Morris will release The Situationist on his own new label – Soul Arch Recordings – and he has a few other exciting upcoming releases in the works too.

Influenced by the likes of Dylan, The Band and Neil Young, Gunthorpe makes a big impression with an acoustic guitar, harmonica and a true voice.


The Situationist is released by Soul Arch Recordings and is available via iTunes or you can also purchase a copy at any of the live shows. See Andrew at the Sheoak Shack this Saturday and The Courthouse Hotel Mullumbimby next Saturday, November 10.
