‘Over the past decade my guitars have been subjected to various indignities in the name of art. But at least I don’t play Stairway to Heaven on them anymore.’ GB
Tim is a musician originally from Hobart where he was involved in various unheard-of projects such as Untermorast and Soundtracks Will Dissolve. In Melbourne he plays a variety of instruments in the improvising noise/drone duo The Drunken Boat. This time out it’s a rare solo outing on the bouzouki, an instrument on which he plays free folk influenced by rembetika, the urban Greek blues of the early 20th Century.
