The Steel Springs Featuring Tex Perkins And Ron Barassi - One Minute's Silence
The Beasts of Bourbon and Cruel Sea front man, Tex Perkins, is joined by The Steel Springs (taking their name from a pivotal scene in the movie Gallipoli), The Welsh Choir and Ron Barassi who provides the voice of an unknown soldier “I was once like you, young and free, your future is my history. Lest We Forget”.
Matthew Hardy said "I recalled how Ron Barassi's father was a Rat Of Tobruk who died in action. I approached Ron with the song and he was on board at once. He does a lot for Legacy already and was happy to assist."
This unique and heart-warming song will be performed live for the very first time by The Steel Springs with Tex Perkins in a fan-packed MCG on Anzac Day.
About this track...
The song was written by author of best-seller Saturday Afternoon Fever, Matthew Hardy, with help from local muso Richard Gillard (Secret Life Of Us Soundtrack) with profits going to Legacy. Hardy says “Listen to it once the whole way through and tell us you didn’t get goose bumps”.
