There hasn’t been a rock band that has captured the Australian political and social landscape in recent times quite like The Drones. Gareth Liddiard is a storyteller who tells it how it is with all the intensity that he can muster.
The name of this new track refers to the 1948 unresolved murder of a man found dead on Somerton Beach in South Australia. The strange case was high profile internationally, yet received very little care in Australia.
Liddiard fumes at the lack of care for this man’s life, and takes aim at the delusional state of Australian politics, pulling apart our conflicted cultural fabric. Anzac Day, Andrew Bolt and the Carbon Tax are all there for the taking.
