Danny Walsh and Emma Peel’s fourth annual Reservoir Stomp proved to be a big hit with young families.

The all-day event was held last Sunday at the Preston-Reservoir Bowls Club. The Reservoir Stomp featured music on two stages plus a stack of stuff for the kids with the Boxwars a major hit with the children.

For the grown-ups music went none stop inside and out with a not-too-shabby 3pm slot for Cookin’ On 3 Burners, a reasonable 8.15pm start for Remi and the office hours knock-off slot the appropriate time for Danny and Emma to launch the Cheddar Road All-Stars ‘Nowhere Else To Feel Rotten’ album.

The album gets to the heart of Reservoir with a tracklisting full of local anthems like ‘Cheddar Road’, ‘Vietnam War in Reservoir’, ‘The Old Reservoir Baptist Church’, ‘Errol Flynn in Edwardes Street’ and ‘The Song of Donath Reserve’.

Australian playwright Barry Dickins took part in the project bringing stories to the regional to life unseen since Courtney Barnett honoured the local postcode with her song ‘Depreston’.

‘Nothing Else To Feel Rotten’ is true homemade music, recorded in Reservoir at Captain B Studios and featuring original artwork of the Cuthbert Street Reservoir flood of 1958.

The Reservoir Stomp was a complete day of music with Remi, Cookin’ on 3 Burners + The Wolfgramm Sisters, Ponyface, Tek Tek Ensemble, Freya Josephine Hollick, Empat Lima, Madeline Lehman and The Desert Swells, Pico Sound System feat. Cumbia Cosmonauts, Barbarion, Rebetika Ensemble, Box Wars, Bongo Brothers, Outer Urban Projects, Rezza Rockers Primary School Band, all MC’d by Emma Peel, Danny Walsh and Talei Wolfgramm.

No doubt a fifth annual Reservoir Stomp is already in the planning.
