Dust has settled on elections for the board of APRA and I'm very pleased to say I've been returned as a Writer Director. Thanks to all those members who voted for me. And congratulations to Nigel Westlake who was also returned as a director and picked up an ARIA award earlier this week to boot.

Now I can get back to work on the album I started recoding in Italy in April with The Magnolia Orchestra - guitarist Aldo Betto, bass player Giacomo Da Ros & drummer Youseff Ait Bouazza - and engineers Daniele 'The Chipster' Di Giovanni & Max Costa. Should be out in February with hopefully an east coast Australian tour with The Magnolia Orchestra in March. Here's a taste of what's to come Xmas Tree.

Much to do in 2018: Buried Country shows in Tamworth, Sydney and more, a new Dead Marines album, more projects with the fabulous Dave Mason. Keep an eye on Tour Dates. See youse all on the mean streets... Brendo (pic by Marco Piazza)
