Sydney merchants of bluegrass and “inner-western” The Morrisons are taking over the Danceteria tonight for a huge night with an all-star lineup of local heroes, including Emma Swift, Matt Mason (DMA’s), Brian Campeau (The Green Mohair Suits), Elana Stone (All Our Exes Live In Texas) and Eddie Boyd.
Well-known for a deep bag of tunes and a prolific love of all things country, we asked them to warm us up with some selections…
I’d been living in London for a while when I first heard this song (I’m a late comer to Paul Kelly), and this song made me miss Sydney so much I moved home. Beautiful.
We argue about this song a bit. Did Steve Earle or Levon Helm do this song better? Feel welcome to weigh in on this if you see us around. Also, we grew up in the mountains, making it a winner.
Its about some law in Alabama. I don’t really care about that, I just think it sounds good. We play this song a lot.
It’s a song about a girl. The girls now my wife, and I found out it IS love.
Just listen to it. An explanation will ruin it.
