Best known for his work as the drummer for Australia’s most critically acclaimed rock band The Drones, Mike Noga found a rare gap in his hectic schedule and decided to record. Mike gathered close friends, his Gentlemen of Fortune cohorts Pat Bourke (Dallas Crane) on bass and Gus Agars (The Gin Club) on drums. Set up shop in an old warehouse on the outskirts of Melbourne, rehearsed up these songs... and hit record. Two nights later he had the finished result. Each song captured in the first or second takes. No more mucking around. Get in there, blast them out, and get out. The way it used to be done, and for Mike, the only way.
Mixed by good friend Burke Reid (The Drones, The Mess Hall, Gerling) The Balladeer Hunter, the follow up to Noga’s 2006 debut Folk Songs is an all too rare slice of reality and soul. A true ‘album’ as opposed to a collection of songs, and a modern day mix of folk ballads and slap-in-the-face, venom-filled rockers that wreak of early Springsteen, 70’s Dylan, the relentless pummelng of Suicide back to back with the secret whisper of Leonard Cohen.
An album that will remain ageless.
About this track...
Where have all the great albums gone? Where are the Highway 61’s and the Astral Weeks’? The albums that you go back to time and time again like an old blanket, to wrap yourself in their familiar embrace. To hear an artist REALLY pouring his or her heart out.
