Anyone with a familiarity with the broad Australian accent will have no troubles reading Poltz’s new album as ‘1999’, and fittingly it was recorded in Perth.

He chuckles about the title, “I came to Australia many moons ago and recently I asked one of the promoters what year it was when I first came over. He said, ‘Oi reckon it was about Noineen Noiny Noin’. So I thought to myself, holy heck! That’s a great title for my album!”

The album has just been released on iTunes and fans who come see Poltz on his tour will be able to grab a special edition titled Noineen Noiny Noin And A Haff (with a six-track bonus disc).

Poltz kicked off his tour in Queensland this week, dropped into Adelaide last night, and has Melbourne, Sydney, Newcastle and Perth to go. Check out his exuberant blog of the tour so far here.

Rob Thomas Insults Indigenous Australians And Owes Australia An Apology

I’m going to give Rob Thomas the benefit of the doubt after he slurred the oldest continuous culture on planet earth. Maybe his comment was just a bad joke from an ignorant tourist. Then again maybe a little racist streak just let loose for one blind moment.
