On listening to the much anticipated debut album from Melbourne's own The Barebones, recent comparisons to legends such as Wilco and Elvis Costello are not just flattering, but super accurate. #TheBarebonesMusic
Where Have All The Good Folk Gone resonates with a universal swagger that captures influences of alt-country, rock and a good measure of melodic folk"¦ The whole dang thing's a real toe tapper.

The album's first single 'I Feel Fine' mixes the swagger of the Stones with a twin guitar onslaught reminiscent of the Young brothers, a triumphant rock'n roll anthem about casting off self-doubt. The album, recorded at Hamer Hall by local luminary D. Rogers, showcases the band's song craft and versatility, careering effortlessly between pared back Wilco-esque alt-country to pool room rock n roll.

To celebrate the release of Where Have All The Good Folk Gone, The Barebones will be performing a very special matinee show at the Northcote Social Club on the 15th of October, joined on stage by critically acclaimed Melbourne singer-songwriter D. Rogers and a brand new band made up of friends old and new called Queensland.

D. Rogers will be playing a rare live set with his new backing band, The Liquor Whips. They will be playing through songs from D's vast back catalogue and debuting new songs never heard before.

Queensland is the new band from Mikey Madden (The Vandas, Gruntbucket) and features an all-star Melbourne line-up of Ryan McCarthy (St Jude, Dynamo), Chris Roberts (The Wardens, The Legs) and Sam Fiddian (Cold Irons Bound, Downhills Home). Taking cues from the sounds of Tom Petty, Crazy Horse and Big Star, Queensland forge their own sound through infectious pop hooks and killer guitar workouts.

That's one hell of a foot stomping Saturday afternoon!
