Joeys Coop - Take Me Away

Joeys Coop - Take Me Away
Joeys Coop (yes we know there should be an apostrophe) is the combined musical muscle of some of Australia’s finest independent musicians whose collective pedigree extends back to the late 1970s. Joeys Coop features:

Brett Myers (Died Pretty) guitar & vocals
Mark Roxburgh (Decline of The Reptiles) vocals
Andy Newman (The Visitors, The Deniz Tek Group) bass
Matt Galvin (Eva Trout, Perry Keyes, Loose Pills) guitar
Lloyd G (Perry Keyes, Dave Warner) drums

It’s not for nothing they’ve been dubbed the Indy Supergroup. Joeys Coop gives voice to the life experiences of people who’ve lived a bit.

Built around the songwriting of Myers and Roxburgh - with all members contributing deft musical touches to arrangements - Joeys Coop tell tales of fractured family, loss, the oddities of 21st century life, the burdens of over-leveraged real estate commitments, mid-life existential angst, memories of landscape lost and mediations on the lives of friends gone wrong.

Their beautifully crafted songs are played by a bunch of very talented and experienced musicians at their creative peak. The songs combine great power, melody, and drama. Essentially these are great songs well played.

About this track...

A song of power and melody that speaks of the yearning of escape from the artifice and banality of modern life. Features the jangling sounds of Matt Galvin on 12 string (think the Byrds) and a classic Brett Myers haunting lead break this song encapsulates Joeys Coop in 3:52.
