Max_Mo @ Goolwa


I’m really looking forward to our first live gig at the Salt on the Tongue poetry festival (which will be HUGE) at Goolwa this Sat night.
The poetry is hot and the music is cool. Max_mo is poets Amelia Walker, Mike Ladd & me and musos Steve Matters (bass), Andy Mills (drums) and Derek Pascoe (tenor sax). We’ve been rehearsing at the ABC studios over the last couple of weeks & we’re ready to roll. This will be something VERY new. Hope to see some of you there at the Brewery, Goolwa 10:30 pm April 24. Cost: FREE!


picture-4I never did mention on this website that my son Ben and I won the 2009 Newcastle Poetry Prize (New Media) for our collaborative effort bibliophobia. In fact we were in Newcastle accepting our prize just hours before my dad died.
Thanks to Ben for posting the news on his website. (You can view the video HERE.)
