Gil Matthews Aztec Records Releases Rare Madder Lake Live

Gil Matthews latest Aztec Record is a double CD of mostly previously unreleased live Madder Lake recordings.

The tracks span Sunbury 1973 and 1974, the Victorian Country Tour of 1974, Garrison in 1973, Sydney 1978, Melbourne from 1982 and more recently Musicland from a 2008 reunion.

At the Aztec Records website it states, “During the early to mid-1970s Madder Lake was one of Australia’s pre-eminent rock bands, rubbing shoulders with all the big name acts of the day – Chain, Coloured Balls, Billy Thorpe and The Aztecs, The Dingoes, Band of Light etc. They released two acclaimed albums, Stillpoint and Butterfly Farm, yet their forte was the live performance which saw them play to packed crowds.

“They were a funky rock ’n’ roll band capable of adding elaborate elements on top that allowed them to go off on musical flights of fancy. And in the wickedly grinning, moonfaced Micky Fettes, with his manic Joe Cockeresque stage movements, they had one of the great front men of the age. He knew how to keep audiences entertained, with entire auditoriums of fans aping his every move.”

Musicians across the line-up are Brenden Mason, Kerry McKenna, Micky Fettes (RIP), Jac Kreemers, John McKinnon, Andy Cowan, Andy Burns.
