Given the Grandioso, shot from Robbie Sullivan's hip, he also laced our funk with rockabilly razz. This was his first time in our studio. While he readied his rig, I tried to explain what he'd be confronting; like how the verse blends bars of 3/4 and 4/4. He nodded once (at his amp, I think), during this punctilious prep, then told me to hit RECORD. Your funeral, I mused, having not yet even mentioned the key, or the idea that his solo would go for three, 4/4 verses. But hell .. why not hear how he goes? He duly laid several tracks, in the same winning voice that he has given our guitars since. Gotta love Cowra's coolest ever export!
