Brian Cadd Gathers Up A New Bulletproof Bootleg Family

43 years ago Australian songwriting legend Brian Cadd and record company mogul gathering Melbourne’s most seasoned musicians and anointed them The Bootleg Family.

The good time band to be had by all quickly scored a couple of Top 10 hits in Australia with covers of Loggins and Messina’s ‘Your Mama Don’t Dance’ and Betty Everett’s ‘The Shoop Shoop Song’.

Now after all these years Brian Cadd has gathered up Tony Naylor, Gus Fenwick, Geoff Cox from the original band and brought in Dai Pritchard, Rick Fenn and Richard Naylor [guitars], Mick Skelton [drums], Greg Lyon [Bass], John Grant, Jamie Rigg and Sam See [keyboards], Angela Labrandi, Lou Lincoln, Nikki Nicholls, Lisa Bade, Lindsay Field, Glyn Mason, John Creech, Ed Ahern, Paul Kelly [backing vocals], Mike Rudd [harmonica] and Wilbur Wilde [saxophone] to form an all-new Bootleg Family Band and record a brand new album ‘Bulletproof’.

For Brian, there was a discipline that bands had before going into the studio. “Prior to the 70s bands recorded fairly rarely, mostly it was about live gigs,” says Brian. “So bands would play four or five nights a week for six months, and then get to go into a studio – which by definition made them more cohesive and tighter.

‘Bulletproof’ was recorded in Melbourne by Doug Brady at his new Furstock Studio. “Even though it might be my song and I’m singing it, the combination of all the other talents contribute to the ‘one-ness’ of this record,” says Brian of Bulletproof’s live energy.

The new Bootleg Family Band album ‘Bulletproof’ will be released through MGM on November 11.

Brian and the Bootleg Family Band will perform at:

November 11, Albury, SS&A Club
November 12, Moama, Moama RSL
November 18, Melbourne, The Palms
