"I have Powderfinger on my iPod,
I run to some Powderfinger songs
and I'm less familiar with Custard's work
but I know they are a band that's enjoyed
a good reputation"
Queensland Premier, Anna Bligh
Custard will reform for one show only in their hometown of Brisbane
in December. The Dave McCormack-helmed outfit, who split in 1999,
have been invited to perform at a Q150 Proclamation Day concert at
the City Botanic Gardens on December 10. The event, which
celebrates 150 years since Queensland was declared a separate
colony to NSW, has been curated by Powderfinger, who convinced
Custard’s “most popular” incarnation to reform for the show.
Other acts performing include local up-and-comers The Cairos,
The Middle East and Yves Klein Blue.
Yes its true, the fabulous Custard are playing a one off show
this December. One of the funnest bands I have ever seen.
Daves got a new album coming too, so theres a bit of activity
in the McCormack camp, which is great news.
I'm excited to have found a recording of Dave McCormack
and the Polaroids playing the Sounds of Spring Festival at
the RNA Showgrounds in Brisbane last weekend,
Sep 26th 09.
He plays quite a bit of Custard.
Thanks Chris for the heads up on this important gig.
