A new year, warm in Sydney, much to do. I'll be in Italy 16 January to play some shows with The Magnolia Orchestra - Aldo Betto guitar, Giacomo Da Ros bass & Youssef Ait Bouazza drums. To my Italian friends, a presto!

Then late February I'll be doing a short run of solo shows in Sydney, Brisbane & northern NSW. Check out the dates page for a gig near you. There is talk of some Buried Country shows this year as well, and possibly some LJ Hill gigs too. Stay tuned.

Have been working on new Dead Marines album with Bernie Hayes & Bow Campbell, some really great songs coming along, a real joy. It's only been 15 years since the the last one. And next year marks 50 years that I've been playing the guitar, have a special recording project in mind...

See youse all on the mean streets... Brendo
