Mick Thomas Book Launch Hobart Gaol Thu 25 May
These Are The Days is a book of stories that all starts with the songs. How they got written, where and why they got written, and why they still get played. And its about the people – in the various line ups of the various bands, the people in the studio, and in the audience at the countless shows. And its about when Weddings, Parties, Anything first called it a day back in 1998 when Mick quickly realised there was no good night to go into. The book follows the stories of 31 songs, each including stories and a song chart.
These Are The Days is a companion to Mick's new album These Are the Songs, a lovingly crafted compilation album spanning the past eighteen years and more of Mick Thomas’ creative life. From the wry and laconic observations of ‘The Lonely Goth’ to the wit and whimsy of ‘You Remind Me’, the soaring growl of ‘Hard Currency’ to the pure joyous on-the-road fun of ‘Sleep on Your Floor’ and ‘The Last of the Tourists’, this is a classic set of tunes performed by a loose but lovingly selected bunch of players.
