“Every inch of me is always itching unless I’m on a stage,” sings The Smith Street Band front man Wil Wagner on the opening tracks to their new record Throw Me In The River.

In what has been a stellar year for the group, in which Throw Me In The River has received universal praise, been crowned triple j’s album of the week and debuted in the top 20 of the ARIA chats, 2015 will be much of the same for the band, already filling their calendar with national and international tour dates, including a second appearance at Belgium’s Groezrock Festival.

Don Walker releases a brand new live album, recorded at Melbourne’s Caravan Club, featuring songs from the acclaimed album ‘Hully Gully’ and the vast Don Walker catalogue.
Walker has few peers, if any, in illuminating the darker underbelly of the Australian psyche, whether he’s performing with Cold Chisel, Tex, Don and Charlie or solo. Angry women, luck-chasers, heartbroken prodigals who don’t smell good and anyone who just wants to throw the afternoon away on a game of pool – they’re all still there recorded live.
