ONE HUGE LINEUP to support a very worthy cause. It's all about helping out a fellow musician and a Melbourne Recording Studio institute.
You may or may not have heard of Preston Records, but those who appreciate amazing authentic roots recordings and the warmth of vintage valve sounds will surely know the legendary recording sessions that have come out of this studio since the 80's and the many, many releases on the Preston label. The studio has seen the 'whos who' of the Melbourne roots, rock'n'roll and rockabilly musos that have twanged and bellowed various tunes and laid them down on reel to reel tape. Not even local but it has played host to many an interstate and overseas act within those studio walls. The man behind it all is Graeme Thomas, Bassist, Guitarist, Engineer and Producer who has lived, breathed and ran the studio for many a year and like many of us at times, has had his ups and downs through life. Well now is one of those times when it's down, so the potential to see an Melbourne institution like Preston Records be lost is very, very real. Through the efforts of Rick Dempster and others, this won't be a lost cause. This is a benefit show to raise the much needed funds to help Graeme keep the dream alive and give others the continued opportunity to record the way it should be.
The Rechords have a strong connection with Graeme, for if it wasn't for him we wouldn't have met Leo Francis. So get on board with this one folks, if the lineup isn't enough I don't know what is........... check this out:-
