ABOUT THIS ALBUM


Album Notes
Recorded in one day at a small studio on the outskirts of Melbourne, this 7 song offering from Sean Kershaw is a slight departure from his previous CD "Coney Island Cowboy". With a crunchy tremolo-drenched retro feel from Justin Rudge's telecaster and the pulsing, streamlined rhythms of Scott Bennett on drums and Sweet Felicia on bass "The Aussie Sessions" has more in common with Link Wray and the Black Keys than the rockabilly-swing leanings Mr Kershaw is known for. The songs themselves have the quality of an opium dream on a speeding 18-wheeler careening down a mountain road. By turns wearily resigned to inevitable demise (Cleaning My Gun), imploring surrender to true love (Forever my Darlin), accusing a faithless lover in a bouncy surf-style pop song (Daydream Deceiver) and just plain going nuts in the public eye (Gigglin Madman Blues) each track holds its own while complimenting the whole: No filler here. And yet more than just a collection of tunes. Put it on the car stereo for a long drive and let it go around a few times. You'll be hooked.

Global Honky Tonk Extravaganza
People unfamiliar with the New York honky tonk scene might wonder at its existence - but as this record by one of the City's top practitioners of the art demonstrates, it's thriving. Kershaw has been wowing audiences in NYC for years, giving longtime fans of the genre a taste of the real thing and creating new hard country fans with every performance. This record documents a tour of Australia with a band of Melbourne musicians; the fact that it was recorded in a single day means that the shows on that tour must have been truly hot. And the songs are some of the best that the "Coney Island Cowboy" has written, ranging from some songs that show a 60s pop influence to much darker, brooding punk sounds. Great stuff!
