Doing Adrian's job and exploring his new cultural heritage, we went along to Archie's concert at Pataka tonight. For a guy of my age who has had a hard life, part of Australia's lost Aboriginal (non PC word) generation, lost a wife to heart attack in 2010 and half a lung to cancer a year or so later, Archie sounds pretty fine. Very heavy songs from his 25 year old Charcoal Lane album, re-released last year. He commented now he sings the songs and says, 'So that's was what it was about!'

Have a listen to my Facebook clip.
