After living the best part of two years in Berlin, Ned Collette returns to Melbourne for the first time this October to release a 7″ inch and play a one off show with Wirewalker.
Long You Lie / The Hedonist is the new offering from Ned Collette & Joe Talia, Collette’s inveterate musical collaborator and co-producer. Their first output on vinyl, it will be released as a limited edition 7″ through boutique Melbourne vinyl imprint Escobar Records on 29 October 2011.
The release will be made available via mail order from www.nedcollette.com with pre-orders taken from 10 October 2011, and in selected stores. Each high quality vinyl features colour artwork on 300gsm stock, and comes with a download code for access to full quality digital versions of the tracks.
The release will also be available on Saturday 29 October at The Toff In Town in Melbourne, where Ned Collette & Wirewalker (Collette, Talia, Ben Bourke on bass, James Rushford on keyboards) will play a one off show.
They will perform the songs from the vinyl release as well as an album’s worth of new material which has already been recorded in Berlin, and which Collette and Talia are finishing work on in Melbourne. Quite a departure from earlier work, the new material sees a marriage of Spanish guitar based song-writing with drums both real and electronic, synths, and Talia’s more experimental work.
Special guests at the Toff show will be Sailor Days, the vocal/viola based project of sometime Collette collaborator Biddy Connor, featuring Laura Jean and Jen Sholakis.
