Hugo Race (founding member of Nick Cave & the Bad Seeds and The Wreckery) and Michelangelo Russo are no strangers to either Hooker or the blues. They are about to embark on a national tour from July 2017, with the reimagining of Hooker, paying homage to one of the greats of rock and roll prehistory. Recorded in a single, continuous day and night live session at the Berlin studio of Einsturzende Neubauten by engineer Boris Wilsdorf, this is an epic album of sonic sorcery suspended in time and place.

The selection of tracks tells a story in itself; from the runaway twelve-year old boy of the desolate classics ‘Hobo Blues’ and ‘Country Boy’ to the worldly-wise elder Hooker of ‘The World Today’ (originally from Hooker ‘n Heat) and The Motor City’s Burning (a cover of Hooker’s cover of the MC5 classic), the album traces the arc of a life from pre-modernity to the Now on the 100th anniversary of Hooker’s birth.
The Release date May 19th, 2017 through Glitterhouse Records and Gusstaff Records in Europe, and Rough Velvet Records/MGM in Australia.

Chris Wilson and Shannon Bourne embark on a special set of Australian Blues Songs. From hits to obscurities, Chris will be drawing on his own deep love of 70’s Blues/Rock with some straight up versions and modern re-imaginings. Be sure to see this, there will not be too many chances to see and hear this set of music.
