DON WALKER & BAND ANNOUNCE MAY/JUNE 2016 EAST COAST DATES

Don Walker and his band The Suave Fucks have today announced a return to the stage with dates confirmed for May and June.

They play one of their favourite rooms the Camelot Lounge, Marrickville on Friday May 27 followed by Bowral Bowling Club on Saturday May 28. In Melbourne they play the Memo Music Hall, St Kilda on Friday June 3 and the Caravan Music Club, Oakleigh on Saturday June 4. They head to the Mullumbimby Ex-Services Club on Saturday June 11.

Don Walker's songs have been mapping Australia, from Kings Cross to regional towns and the spaces between, for more than thirty years, through solo albums and shows, a couple of albums with Tex, Don and Charlie, back to his youth as a member of Cold Chisel.

He has few peers, if any, in illuminating the darker underbelly of the Australian psyche. 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.

Tickets for all shows are on sale now.

DON WALKER - RELEASES 'LIVE AT THE CARAVAN'

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.

Featuring the warm neighbourly sound of his band The Suave Fucks, who happen to be some of the country's finest musicians, including Glen Hannah, Roy Payne, Garrett Costigan, Michael Vidale, Hamish Stuart and special guest Dave Blight, this album will place you front row at any one of Don's live shows. From dreams of the Landsborough Highway to the greasiest rockabilly, Don tells the tales and his wholesome friends paint the horizon behind.

Recorded by the Australian Broadcasting Corporation at the Caravan Music Club in Oakleigh in July 2012, the album was mixed by Chris Thompson at ABC Studios, Melbourne.

This rare live album will only be available for digital download via Don Walker's website and Bandcamp. And for those music nuts out there that appreciate a high quality sound recording it's available as 96K 24bit wav files for your listening pleasure.
