This band of Rowland S. Howard, Peter Jones, Brian Henry Hooper, Conway Savage and Spencer P. Jones are all gone now, as pointed out by one of my fave band’s social media page yesterday. So figure I might post this video clip up today because it’s been a sad year for Aussie music with both Jones and piano player Savage passing away in just the last month or so and then bass player Hooper back in April. Off course not forgetting guitar player Howard who passed away back in December 2009 and the drummer Peter Jones who passed in May 2012.
Execution Day was track number eleven on Spencer’s debut solo 1994 album entitled Rumour Of Death, previously the song featured on Beasts Of Bourbon’s 1990 album Black Milk. Now on the album’s credits Rowland doesn’t play on this song but does on a few others. Someone who does and is the only one living is Warren Ellis playing violin, off course who’s pretty much the main Bad Seed now after you know who?
Anyway I hope you dig this little slice of Aussie music history, I can’t believe all these musos who were making some great music back in the 90’s are gone now! Just shorter blog post today, I trying to make them a bit more like that but this is the only one lately that is like it.
