No one trick Pony

One of the beauties of the Melbourne has to be the music scene.

When I first arrived in town over a year ago I saw bloke by the name of Matt Joe Gow and his band The Dead Leaves at the Odd Bar on a Sunday residency and it blew me away. He and his band covered a few The Band songs to captivate the room: two guitars, four part harmony, the whole bit. Ended up shootin’ the shit with him at the bar with a beer after and turns out he was originally from Duniden, NZ. So I asked him about the punk scene there in the late 70’s early 80’s that really started take off with Flying Nun Records. He laughed at me and asked how I know that…thanks Jim for making me look cool. More on Matt Joe Gow another time I promise.

Hello…it’s good to be back

I knew he would do it. I just knew he would be the first one to formulate an idea and run with it as he has always done in his writing, music and any other endeavors he chooses to take on. Sure there are times when he has more pressing issues like work or family but he has always found time to devote especially when it sparks his interest. His name is Shawn C. Baker but I like to call him Bakes.
