Rumours of our death have been mildly exaggerated, we were just drunk in the corner and slept for a couple of months â€“ did we miss anything? Corona? Yeah sure Iâ€™ll have a Corona, or Reschâ€™s, whatever, but weâ€™ll need more than 19!
Anyway, weâ€™re playing a gig both live in person and across the interwebs.
Helping us in this endeavour will be the amazing Jo Meares & Michael Bridges. Jo is a proper songwriter, with warm-dark story songs that leave you lost in a poorly-lit Mexican cantina in the backstreets of Berlin, while Michael is a violinist whose fiddling is most profound indeed.
About Suburban Bukowskis:
Upbeat, folky, punky and oft-times funny, neo-beatnik tales of failure, fun, futility and excess in the wild inner-west are trademark of the story-songs penned by award-winning poet and playwright Benito Di Fonzo for the Suburban Bukowskis. Suburban Bukowskis are made complete by veteran rock bassist Mike Sheehan and percussionist Rich Machine.
