From Chucks remarkable record collection we have The Cutters,
a Brisbane Band from the 80's and their 1988 single.
Not a band I know much about except that the keyboard player
is indeed the same Andrew Barlett who became a senator
and went on to lead the Democrats.
Phil Monsour who went on to other bands such as
Carousel, consisting of Chrysalids guitar Graham Jackson
and Cutters bass player/vocalist Ross Mckinnon.
He is still performing and recording, you can read all
about that Here
Thanks Chuck this is a gem.
“In Brisbane during the 70s and 80 radical politics
and alternative music were joined by the umbilical
cord of community radio station 4ZZZ.
It was never clear whether the politics lead,
or music to politics led to music, but by one route
or another many artists, including Philip Monsour,
found themselves both of the airwaves
and on the picket lines”
“The (temporary) closure of ZZZ prompted the Cutters’
second Mighty Boy single “Times Like These” another
example of Philip’s capacity for anthemic political song
