Merle-bourne

9/02/11

Just when you thought Summer couldn’t get any better, Fremantle’s Merle Fyshwick (Bob Dylan meets Napoleon Dynamite) has decided to stroll into Melbourne to do a string of gigs in celebration of his new EP, a tour which I’ll be proudly supporting (see gigs for details).

Official blurb:

“Merle Fyshwick’s band, The Magnetic Letters, is pursuing superdupergroup certification from Richard Wilkins. Comprising members from certified supergroups The Fancy Brothers, Basement Birds and 6s & 7s (among others), The Magnetic Letters will remain in Perth while Merle seeks Dickie’s approval in Melbourne (despite him living in Sydney…) Audiences of solo Merle can expect songs about crap celebrities, dead horses and Richard Dean Anderson. Also playing is Claire Hollingsworth, singer of sneakily disarming songs about crap celebrities, dead horses and Gyton Grantley”.
