History! The first time I saw Tumbleweed, 1993. I remember watching You Am I this night and thinking “yeah, they’ll be huge someday”. They ruled this night. Of course Tumbleweed were awesome too. What a night! #youami #tivolihotel #adelaide
Photo I took of Jay rockin’ out that night! May 14, 1993. #jaycurley #rip #Tumbleweed #tivolihotel #adelaide
RIP JAY CURLEY. The legendary bass player from Tumbleweed, Brother Brick and Proton Energy Pills sadly passed away overnight. I met the dude a few times. This was the first time when Tumbleweed played Adelaide in support of this, their debut full length. I met them all that night and they were all super cool. Jay was taken way too soon. A huge loss to the Australian music scene. #jaycurley #tumbleweed #protonenergypills #waterfrontrecords #wollongong #brotherbrick

Here’s a direct link to 99% of the complete works by America’s coolest filmmaker, my buddy Mike McCarthy. Watching is compulsory.
My buddy made this movie and if you give even the slightest damn about rock n roll, you will watch it. It stars Guitar Wolf, Mike from The Makers and Jack from the Oblivians. It also stars D’Lana Tunnell amongst other legends. Essential viewing and the soundtrack is freakin’ killer.
I saw these guys in Japan in 2011. It was a pretty darn cool show and they played all the hits. These guys play really rockin’ and catchy punk tunes. Well worth checking out if you’re not familiar. Top stuff!
