ABOUT THIS ALBUM


Album Notes
The Lurkers are based in Sydney, Australia. With their acoustic line-up, they play ‘subversive homespun bluegrass’ in the vein of American hillbilly and old timey music. They draw on the tradition of artists and musicians who use their music for political agitation. In turn they use the donated rivers of gold to run the Lurker Van and continue this tradition across the state and country. Politically they are influenced by the likes of Woody Guthrie, Joe Hill, Pete Seeger and Berthold Brecht. Songwriting, lead vocals and harmonies are all shared lending each set a variety of styles, from blues to bluegrass, mountain music to traditional folk.

Soon after meeting at mutual friend’s Climate Action Festival in 2007 the soon to be Lurkers realised they already had something in common; namely friends who held Climate Action Festivals in their backyard. Pretty Boy Floyd, The Weary Hobo and Desert Rat Shorty started making music together in various poses and styles, conscious of the impact a double bass, guitar, banjo, harmonica and where required an angry banjo-mandolin can have on solving the world’s ills.

Proudly anti-authoritarian, The Lurkers made this music to provide you with the soundtrack for your own resistance.
