Yet this chaos, pain and uncertainty has, through Archie’s rich, determined spirit, led to his most positive and celebratory suite of music yet: the joy and exuberance of much of Into The Bloodstream, his eighth studio album, is palpable. With the bad times subsiding, this new album is a joyous declaration of his new purpose and new resolve. This is uplifting music made against the odds.
His message for Aboriginal people and all Australians with a conscience, and also the message from him at this time in his life, is that what doesn’t kill you makes you stronger. For him even though the walk to personal, political or emotional freedoms might seem immense he knows it is still possible to reach a good end or at least find the will to fight for a good end.
Into the Bloodstream is a triumphant and courageous return. This is a man who lost everything then lost some more but he has been bold enough to come back to the stage and the spotlight and tell us what he has learned.
