Here is the first of what I hope will be many more blogs with video of actual performance. This is from a gig we did on February 11th at Bar 303 in Northcote, for Roarhouse, a community volunteer organisation promoting mental health awareness.

My friend Mitch, a travelling filmmaker from France visiting Melbourne, was kind enough to come along and film my set, then cut together this clip. He did a fantastic job. Thanks Mitch.

If you'd like to get a hold of Mitch for something you'd like filmed or edited, talk to him at:

As for the poem itself:
Blog-readers here might be unfamiliar with it, but Alex wrote it for us to perform at his going-away gig in Melbourne just over 2 years ago now, we performed a very jet-lagged version on the Nuyorican open mike in New York shortly thereafter.

Since then, we've done it way-too-many times since we've both returned to Melbourne. The best-performed version to date appears as track #17 on the Product CD. No, seriously I'm not just saying that in a vain effort to entice you to buy my (fucking) CD.

We've agreed to retire it and all our other duets together, indefinitely. So this blog seems like a good way to send it off.

Thanks again Mitch for your work in making this happen.


PS -oh what the hell... (ahem) Oi! Buy my fucking CD already!
