Alex looks green, while Eamon blows his own trumpet.

The Dilworths rock! Down from Sydney and having fun, Eamon and musician mates Karl Laskowski on tenor sax, Alex Boneham on acoustic bass, Cameron Reid on drums and percussion, and Steve Barry on piano (filling in at short notice for Hugh Barrett, who is in Brazil) had Bennetts Lane’s small room swinging.

More on this later, but it was a great gig. They played with heaps of energy and verve, but also with considerable expression. The first set consisted of Lettin’ Loose, Satura, the moving Lily Song, Dealing With the Inevitable and, at the end, The Return of the End. All are tracks from the recent eponymous album.
New material in the second set included Thankyou Mr Kneebody, Soat (by Steve Barry), Trapped, Rhyme and Tell, and Used.
