* RIP Jay Curley of Tumbleweed *

This week the sad news broke of the passing of Jay Curley, bassist of legendary Woolongong-based stoner band Tumbleweed.   Jay and his brother Lenny were two of the founding members of the band which became a much-loved and influential stalwart on the Australian music scene of the 1990s.  Tumbleweed were renowned for their  fuzzed out Sabbath-inspired and wah-wah guitar riffs combined with the Beatles-esq melodies of singer Richie Lewis, played at mammoth volume to legions of fans.   Today we offer a tribute to Jay’s contributions to the early years of the band.

* Featuring Politically Correct Waltzing Matilda’ *

The bush ballad ‘Waltzing Matilda’ is certainly the most famous of all Australian folk songs. It was first composed by poet Banjo Patterson in 1895 and set to music shortly thereafter.  From left field today you can hear a hilarious version titled ‘Politically Correct Waltzing Matilda’, performed by John Shortis and Moya Simpspn, which is what the song would sound like heavily edited by a couple of up-tight government employees!

I am just back from a brief trip to the province of Saskatchewan, where not only did I perform my own version of ‘Waltzing Matilda’ at a family gathering, but I also attended a house show by pianist and singer Jeffrey Straker, who is a native of the suburb of Cathedral in Regina. You can hear one of Jeffrey’s recent singles on the show today, as well as notable Saskatchewan artists Library Voices and Megan Nash and newcomer Kent Davies.
