The Council Album Launch @ Cherry Bar – Saturday 20th Oct
Melbourne rock two-piece The Council are releasing their self-titled 12” vinyl and this launch promises to be anything but beige. Scheduled for Saturday 20 October – and proudly hosted by Cherry Bar – The Council will be supported by the sweet-as-honey Bunny Monroe and the dynamo swagger of Bitter Sweet Kicks.
Joining the boys in black onstage will be a myriad of guest musicians – Ryan Kemp on harmonica (Rock City Riff Raff, Uptown Ace), Paul Donoghue on slide guitar (Schematics), and Brendan Charlie on trumpet (Bitter Sweet Kicks), backed by a sparkling horn section. This will be a Council gig not to be missed.
Fresh from launching a split 7“ vinyl with local babe-rockers Bunny Monroe, this album marks the second release in as many months. Recorded direct to analogue tape at Headgap Studios with Brent Punshon at the helm, the seven track mini-album is a unique blend of blues, gospel and good old-fashioned rock and roll, and sports original artwork by Melbourne artist SkullBrain.
Gone are the days of the trashy two-piece band that simply sounded like a three-piece whose bassist didn’t turn up. Of late, Melbourne has been spoiled with an influx of fresh and innovative duos (King Of The North and Jackson Firebird, to name but a few) who defy logic when it comes to sound, performance and dynamics. Having already played this local two-piece scene for eight years, on Saturday 20th of October, The Council will stand up and be counted.
