Directed By: Fiona Cochrane | Runtime: 52 min | Plays In Short Block:
It’s 2011 and 25 plan to write, record then release a fresh song every two weeks of the year.25 are two unknown, indie songwriters in a bare bones studio in the industrial West of Melbourne – Australia’s music capital. They have a studio set-up which is a piece of Melbourne history – a 1957 train carriage, lovingly restored, fitted out with a Tiki Bar and parked in the Newport Workshop, surrounded by the history of Victoria’s railways. Cath Sheahan is a Melbourne songwriter musician who plays bass. Nick Larkins is a Melbourne indie veteran, from bands including Wild Pumpkins At Midnight, Dan Rumour & The Drift (Cruel Sea), and Monique Brumby. Cath loves pop, Nick loves garage rock. She wants jazz flute, he wants a dirty guitar. Is this ever going to work, are they totally deluded, is it an impossible goal? Will anyone even care or notice in the century of information and product overload? This is not reality TV, it’s not a competition, it’s real musicians doing their own thing. And we’ve had to wait five years to see the result!
