We are shocked and saddened to hear our friend and drummer has died too soon. He was a big strong funny intelligent man with a beguiling Scottish accent.  It was always a pleasure playing traveling and sharing hotel rooms with Iain. A great drummer, a gifted writer, a witty raconteur and a loyal friend he will be sorely missed by his many friends and colleagues all over the world. Our love and condolences to Christine, Molly and Conor 

Reg Mombassa,  Peter O'Doherty, Bernie Hayes and Jon O'Rourke

Dog Trumpet release brand new double A sided single Download available

New Double A sided single - Peter O'Doherty's

Stay For Too Long

 I ‘borrowed’ some of the lyrics for this song from the titles to a couple of paintings by the American folk artist Andrea Heimer.  Her narrative works about growing up in suburbia have long explanatory titles, so I paraphrased one called ‘In Our House and Others I Knew, Redecorating Was a Way To Force Change Without Really Changing Anything At All’ to set my first verse up and used the other ‘A Feeling I Sometimes Have’ in the chorus. There’s a funny familiarity and poignancy about these paintings and I related them to my restless mum who had our family constantly moving house in a quest for something new.

Double A side - Reg Mombassa's

Overseas and Elsewhere

Overseas and Elsewhere has a slightly hillbilly melody and chord structure.  The lyrics are about how pointless it is to worry about small things when there are more positive things in life and you may as well not worry about serious problems until they actually occur. 
 The great leader is a reference to what could be the cause of real worries i.e. a totalitarian tyrant gaining control of your country.

The announcement of the first 15 acts coincides with subscriber tickets going on sale. This first batch of tickets typically sells out within 24 hours. Tickets: http://www.portfairyfolkfestival.com/tickets/

General tickets go on sale on September 16.

It will be the first Folkie with new festival director Caroline Moore in charge, who replaces Jamie McKew.

Moore has already promised a strong arts component in 2017, which include a visual arts exhibition by Reg Mombassa and brother Pete O’Doherty, who are both artists as well as members of Mental As Anything, The Pinks and Dog Trumpet.. 

Mombassa has also designed the 41st Folkie poster, which has been unveiled on the festival’s website.

“I’m excited by the potential of the artistic collaborations that will happen only at Port Fairy this year,” Moore said. “There will be some very special one-off events that won’t be repeated ever again.”

Mambo: Art Irritates Life
Throughout the 80s & 90s Mambo forged a curious Australian aesthetic based on farting dogs, lawnmowers, hills hoists & fibro shacks. It was rebellious, anti-authoritarian, funny & at times very rude.

MEDICATED SPIRITS REVIEWS

"The charm oozes from the lyrics, the singing and the instantly appealing melodies”SMH 

“Reg and Peter have released their masterpiece - Medicated Spirits”. Discussions Magazine USA

 

“The singing is like receiving a smile when a forbidding door is opened to you”. The Age

“Among the threads is a subsection of pop-rock that we might call the ''charm school''. It runs from the Beatles and the Kinks through Hunky Dory-period Bowie to Nick Lowe and on to Dog Trumpet”. Canberra Times

“By album’s end you conclude that, life’s worries notwithstanding, everything will be all right while there are songs as fine as these. Courier Mail

“the duo have come up with their finest batch of songs to date and released as a double album... on two CDs! It doesn't get much better than this, to be honest”. Discussions Magazine USA

 

“Yet there is usually something cheery about their ever-melodic musical settings, which intimate a youth assimilating, say, The Beatles White Album and The Kinks’ Muswell Hillbillies”. Courier Mail

Dog Trumpet have recorded the best album of their career thus far as well as one of the best albums of the year. Not bad for a couple of fellas who've been doing this for nearly 40 years... not bad at all” !  Discussions Magazine USA
