May I suggest that the new album by Greg Poppleton and the Bakelite Broadcasters, ‘Back In Your Own Backyard’ , is a jolly good Christmas gift idea.
“Great album from start to finish…Tight breaks…Diggin’ those arrangements.”
Jesse Miner and Manu, ‘Hey Mr Jesse’ swing dance podcast, San Francisco.
12 great songs from the 1920s and 1930s played by four Australian jazz greats:
Paul Furniss saxes and clarinet,
Geoff Power sousaphone, trumpet and trombone,
Grahame Conlon Spanish guitar, and
Lawrie Thompson drums and washboard.
And I sing. That’s me on the cover…
Now, the cheapest place to buy the album online is Bandcamp. You can directly download the album for only $US 5. Or a CD can be posted to you for $US 12 + postage. At the current exchange rate that’s close to the $20 the CD is on sale for at gigs.
Buy now for Christmas.

Here’s a photo from when Greg Poppleton and the Bakelite Broadcasters played Christmas at Fairfield Museum in 2014, singing with the 3 Amigos. (It was raining, so we all moved to the machine shed which reminds me a little of a shearing shed, but with a concrete floor.)
This December we’re also playing the SBS Christmas Party and a volunteers’ Christmas party for a local council. And we’re playing a few private concerts in the Eastern Suburbs. We can still take bookings for your Christmas event. Call Tony 9567 7171 or email email@example.com
