The official video for ‘What I Thought Of You’ has had its world premiere, here at frankie.
The video was directed by Yanni Kronenberg and is a worldwide Super 8 vimeo collaboration – filmed by 20 people, between 1974-2011, in Australia, America, Canada, The United Kingdom, Germany, Austria, Greece, Iceland, Ukraine, Sweden and Brazil. I would like to thank all the film makers who gave us permission to use pieces from their beautiful footage, short films and home movies.

For the Team album launch at Balmain Town Hall on March 6, we will have a once-off extended version of The Hello Tigers. Viola! Clarinet! And a special guest to sing a song with me. But that’s a secret till the night.

Team

Feb 21 2011

My new album, Team, is now available in all good CD shops and on iTunes.
If you’d like to hear some songs, Team is a featured album this week on Melbourne’s wonderful 3RRR and Album of The Week on ABC Dig Music, which is the ABC’s digital radio station. That means you listen on a digital radio, or if you’re anywhere else in the world you can listen online. Things like that make me feel like I’m from the past, but I’m living in the future. Therefore I always try to remember what Jack Handey said: “If you go flying back through time, and you see someone else flying forward into the future, it’s probably best to avoid eye contact.”
If you’d like to know a little about the recording, you can read a track-by-track description I wrote for triple j’s Home & Hosed blog.
