Flood Cover

The Flood. You have to love a band who can sell a line like “Would you like fries with your kangaroo”, the song is called 2003 and it’s one of those “fall in love on the first listen” ones.

The band scored a well deserved Golden Guitar Award early this year and here is a great quote that sums it all up nicely…

Proudly independent and unswayed by musical ‘fashion’, The Flood keep close to their hearts the most important thing – the music. Influenced by Dylan, Tim Buckley, Leonard Cohen and John Prine, The Flood are a must for roots music fans.

So. Here’s a band who write great original material along with an interesting array of “roots” music. The Flood are a 4 piece Sydney band comprising Kevin Bennett (vocals and guitar), James Gillard (bass, Guitar, Vocals), Steve Fearnley (drums) and Tim Wedde (vocals, keyboards and accordian).and have been together for around five years These dudes know their rock’n’roll and country history backwards and have managed to assimilate all their influences into something distinctively their own.

If you are in Melbourne the band is playing at the East Brunswick Club Hotel on Wednesday 26th July ( yes I know it’s a school night). Might be worth booking ahead.

is fascinated by guitars, music, guitars, production, silly noises, guitars and used to be a musician. Did I mention the thing about the guitars?

  1. I have been watching these guys since the heady late eighties when they played at the bayview tavern with kirk l’orange in Sydney’s Drummoyne. And I’ve had the privelege of nearly ten Tamworth CMF’s to enjoy their music further.Kevin Bennett,James Gillard and Mark[Bucky] Collins are our finest Australian Roots music men.
