Al Matcott - Mediocre

Al Matcott - Mediocre
Hi, my name is Al.
I'm releasing music under the name Al Matcott.
It's my name, but Al is short for Alastair and people spell that incorrectly and it bugs me, so Al's fine.
When people are being complimentary about my music they say things like “great storytelling” or
“I love your storytelling.”
I used to play drums in some bands. One person once said I was their favourite drummer in Melbourne (Australia). I used to play guitar and sing in a couple other bands too.
Now I do both, but in my band.
Named after me.
Al Matcott.

Sometimes I play shows on my own.
These shows sound like folk music or maybe country music or maybe like singer/songwriter music or whatever.
Just me and my guitar and the audience and my great storytelling.

Shows where it's the full band would be called a rock and roll show because it's a rock and roll band and my rock and roll bandmates are Miranda Holt (Claws and Organs and Dr. Sure's Unusual Practice), Brendan West (Cherry Dolls and Moonlover) and Steve McLennan (Buried Feather).

Thanks a lot for your consideration.

Al Matcott.

About this track...

Debut single of Melbourne singer-songwriter Al Matcott. A melancholy road-trip track propelled by Al's nimble drumming and shimmering guitar, the slick bass lines of Brendan West, and pedalsteel of James Gilligan. Recorded in Castlemaine and mixed in New York by Sam Evian.
