Fans of Billy Thorpe & The Aztecs, Gil Matthews has released a new volume of ‘Lock Up Your Mothers’. ‘Live Vol.2’ is out now.

The original ‘Lock Up Your Mothers’ album was a triple disc compilation released in 1994. Here we are 27 years later and Gil’s latest curation of Aztecs live features tracks recorded in 1994 in Gladstone, Melbourne, Sawtell and Dee Why creating a flow-on collection for the band.

‘Lock Up Your Mothers : Live Vol. 2’ features 12 previously unreleased Aztecs live tracks.

Billy Thorpe planned the 1994 tour around an upcoming release that would become ‘Lock Up Your Mothers’. As Thorpe was approaching 50 at the time, the “lock up your daughters” saying rebranded as “mothers” made more sense.

“I think I was the one who said ‘lock you’re your mothers’ because ‘lock up your daughters’ was a bit optimistic,” Gil says in the liner notes. “We’d always come up with whacko names, More Arse Than Class, we were known for that kind of thing. It was a perfect name for it”.

The 1994 Billy Thorpe & The Aztecs line-up was Billy Thorpe (guitar, vocals), Warren Morgan (electric piano, organ), Paul Wheeler (bass) and Gil Matthews (drums, vocals).

Jump online and get ‘Lock Up Your Mothers : Live Vol. 2’ direct from Aztec Records, and who knows, Gil might even lick the back of the envelope it is sent to you in.

I could go to a James Taylor show just for the stories. The man is a part of music history and is still around to tell the tales of how it all began. Like, for instance, being the first artist signed to Apple Records. James “auditioned” for Apple with his song ‘Something In The Way She Moves’. "Paul went away and started the label and George went away and wrote the song”, he said.
