Peter Bibby Marge Colored Vinyl LP
Marge is an album of splintered, volatile Australiana. Recorded with "Strawberry Pete" Gower and drummer "Dirty Dave" Taylor – Peter Bibby's third LP is a soundtrack to a surf movie where there's blood in the water; a dirt road leading to a dead end; the sounds of diesels and dust.
"The Dog Act and I recorded this album in a week off in Perth between two Australian tours. We were match fit and full of beans. It features a selection of songs, some fun, some completely bloody miserable. It was made better by the involvement of the fourth Dog, Mitch McDonald, who engineered the record and offered endless energy and ideas. I love this record," says Bibby of the album.
New single "Whyalla" is a guttural six-and-a-half minute jam that pushes and pulls across the beaten track until there's nothing left to give. It's simultaneously a love letter and a cursing damnation to regional Australia. Its spoken-word bridge lays down tall tales about some of its most notable legends, while the chorus draws you in like a mozzie to the zapper, only to get promptly shocked once again by the song's churning riff.
"I wrote this song a few years back after my mate Racoo asked me to write a song for an Australian road trip compilation she was putting together. I don't think it saw the light of day. I had a lot of help from Wikipedia," says Bibby of the track.
