Steve Grieve and The Mourners’ gig at Katoomba’s Palais Royale Hotel is not far away.
To get you into the groove, here’s the video clip for their track ‘Neighbours’.
Steve says about it….
“We wrote this tune many moons ago having grown up in Canberra, incensed by the implied call to action of the local constabulary’s “Neighbourhood Watch” community outreach program. Yes, pot, paranoia, persecution and police – a perfect recipe for a song, not to mention irresistibly alliterative. The idea of the citizenry collectively peering through their curtains and dobbing in their friends and family also segued nicely with a certain contrarian libertarian urge – surely, we should be allowed to do whatever we like in the privacy of our own home? Or should we? This scandalously rebellious sentiment arose against a background which featured many less than savoury youthful encounters with the law, too numerous and scandalous to mention here, suffice to say that they included much real and threatened confiscation of loud and at times excessively noisy music making apparatus, guitars, amps drums etc. at a string of mostly enjoyable, only occasionally memorable rehearsals, parties and unofficial house ‘concerts’.”
