Peter Garrett A Version of Now (Vinyl)
Pressed on black 140gram vinyl, A Version Of Now is Peter Garrett's debut solo album, seeing the Midnight Oils frontman enter the studio once more.
A note from Peter:
As I was finishing my memoir, melodies and lines kept dropping into my head and I ended up reaching for a guitar and writing a few songs. It was a surprise to discover the creative spring flowing again. But once these accidental tunes were out in the sunlight I decided to jump into a studio and give them life, along with a few other snippets from another age I'd always liked. I wanted to capture my version of now: a reflection of turbulent decades spent at full stretch, and the person - Doris - places and things that mean the world to me. With the parachute opening quickly, Martin Rotsey came on board to play guitar and was a great sounding board. Later, Pete Luscombe of 'RocKwiz' fame and numerous Paul Kelly bands, Mark Wilson previously in Jet, Heather Shannon from The Jezabels, and Jamie Hutchings formerly of Bluebottle Kiss, and now Infinity Broke, plus my daughters Em, May and Grace, joined in. I can't thank all the players enough for giving so much to this rush of music making. Burke Reid who has worked with The Drones, Courtney Barnett and a host of others, did a mighty job producing the record with me at Rancom St Studios in Botany, and we mixed at Harry Vanda's Hercules Studios in Surry Hills.
