    I am really happy when I receive a new CD from some older musos who have got together to write. To us at Wrokdown this is like young up-and-coming bands, except the Dukes of Despair are seasoned musos with the chops to prove it!. Their debut CD 'Wood, wire and skin' shows their country roots and it's hard to pick their best song.

    'Decent People' is the follow-up to James Hampton's first cd 'Land or Sea'. I love listening to James' songs as he doesn't add production for the sake of it, they are wonderful on their own in their simplicity. He has surpassed LOR as his lyrics have matured, but his piano playing is just as pleasurable and clever.

    The second cd from the Dukes of Despair is just as good as their first, which I loved. These guys are a tight unit, and a great country rock band with all the right ingredients, and they are here for the long run.

    'Blueprint' is the long awaited for new cd from the original Sebastian Hardie. It is a joy to listen to - a collection of tracks that follow 'Four Moments' and 'Windchase' as naturally as if they were written the day after. With guest vocalist Dave Wilkins, it just adds another dimension to their superb musicianship. I'm pretty certain they will head off overseas where they are much appreciated.

    Contains 6 tracks.

    Who is Mark Pengilly? He is just someone who saw my postings and sent me a cd on the off chance that I might like something, and I did. Mark is one of those Aussie Indie songwriters who just keeps putting out CDs hoping for a break. 'Anothery' - this song haunts me!

    Warren O'Neill is a Melbourne musician, who has played in many bands, but decided to do a solo instrumental CD. Warren has overdubbed his guitar, weaving in and out to create beautifully calming and mesmerizing tracks. Very aptly named 'Dreamspell'.

    Paul Norton has produced this very pretty country CD 'Butterfly' by Susan Lily. He not only played on it with many other well known musicians, but did some backing vocals and co-wrote a couple of tracks. The result is a lovely MOR CD and Susan - singer/songwriter - is very easy to listen to. Apart from a couple of up tempo numbers (including 'You only kiss me when you're drunk'!), most songs are pretty laid back.
