Us Not Them – Live – One Man’s Weeds Another Man’s Flowers
Songs of separation, struggle, strength and rejuvenationRecorded Live at Wongawilli Hall over two nights, this CD is a showcase of Us Not Them in concert, including 11 previously unrecorded songs. A rare collection of gems, this album displays a strong Australian character exploring aspects of our history and landscape and their impact on individuals. Some of the songs are over 100 years old, others written in the past 20 years. Come to terms with our convict heritage through the awesome ballad ‘Exile of Erin’ and then look again through the contemporary eyes of David Beniuk with ‘Like Limerick’. Experience the drought and despair in the bush through ‘Dirt of the Mallee’ and find a kind of peace in ‘Sweet Necessity’ and ‘Move Along Baldy’. Join the audience in the powerful choruses of ‘Poison Train’ and ‘Sing Us a Song Boys’ from Michael O’Rourke. Add to this a few previously recorded Us not Then songs including the evocative Salvation Jane and ‘The Wanderers’ to complete a quality packed 60 minutes of music.
