ABOUT THIS ALBUM


Album Notes
A Moving Feast is Bruce’s fourth album, and it’s another masterpiece. It is exactly what the title promises: a feast of moving songs – but also chock full of great humour and biting wit.

The songs draw on a variety of musical genres including rock, country, musical comedy and folk. Bruce is helped out by many of Melbourne’s top musicians, including the Great Southern Band, Peter Vadiveloo, Gavan MaCarthy, Brian Strating, Lyndal Chambers Neil Adam, David Diprose, Darryl Thompson, Chris Lazarro, Claire Peters, Janine Lancaster, Ernie Gruner, Gus Rigby and Stephen Wright.

Highlights include the award-winning song Dad's Clothes, a beautiful and poignant piece, and the confronting The War without a Name, about Australia’s long ignored frontier violence, which incorporates an extraordinary newspaper reading from 1907. On a similar theme of reconciliation is The Sorry Song with its infectious chorus. September 11 is particularly powerful, with a twist that will stun you. Joe Dolce described this as “One of Australia’s finest contemporary songs.”

The chillingly honest Nobody Should Have to Go through This - a song about families of the Bali bombing victims, and the moving and gentle Lost Children of the Empire, touchingly reminds us of the story of Australia’s child migrants.
All this is perfectly leavened by a host of comic songs like My Pussy Cat Keeps Peeing on The Carpet, Elvis Is Alive and I am the Very Model of a Modern Foreign Minister, and Landlubber's Shanty which will have all die-hard folkies laughing while they sing along!

Bruce Watson has a knack for a catchy chorus and a strong melody line that will stay with you. His lyrics are beautifully crafted, and he uses his art to tell important stories – and just for the fun if it.

“We played it and played it and again ... love it. Best you have done.” David Long, Radio Adelaide 101.5 FM

“Fanbloodytastic. This album is one of the most impressive that I've heard in ages, and I hear lots.” David Miller, Radio 3MDR

“Watson is a writer who has a lot to say Watson crafts his songs with skill and has a real ear for a catchy melody. All the song lyrics are included in an attractive booklet.” Jim Low, Folk Australia
