Day 13 of our unofficial Aussie Music Month and tie for an oldie (2011) but a bit of a classic – ‘Footscray Station’ by Scott & Charlene’s Wedding.

This recording was before their big breakthrough and a move to bedroom Suck Records and overseas release of ‘Any Port in a Storm’ on Fire Records. ‘Footscray Station’ here is live & loose & channels The Clean (Anything Could Happen’) & Bob Dylan in equal measures.

This is probably more of that cliched Aussie ‘Deadbeat Rock’ – although they refer to it rather better as “pop-grunge character building”. Whatever they call it, Scott & Charlene’s Wedding refined it to an art-form.
