While the classic hits of  Russell Morris are still heard daily on radio around Australia his next project with surprise you. Russell Morris has made a blues album about the colourful characters of Australia’s underworld from the early 1900’s until around 1960.

‘Sharkmouth’ is something totally different for Russell Morris, yet something so creative and innovative that it will no doubt end up as a historical musical document of Australia’s colourful past.

Russell Morris dropped into Noise11.com to tell the Sharkmouth story to Paul Cashmere.
