Hoodoo Gurus Debut ‘Carry On’ And Hit The Road In January For Red Hot Summer

by Paul Cashmere on December 6, 2021

Hoodoo Gurus new song could be considered to be about the Covid lockdown but Dave Faulkner wrote it before Covid.

Dave says, “Carry On wasn’t written about the pandemic but the song has certainly been useful in helping me get through it: just remember to keep your head down and do your best. That’s a philosophy that we in the Hoodoo Gurus have always lived by.

“As for the video, I have a sister-in-law who is a career nurse as well as a nephew and niece who are following in her footsteps – one a nurse, the other a paramedic – and I have always marveled at their ability to handle the terrible stress of working in such a demanding environment. But they do, turning up to work each day with optimism despite the terrors they face. It is the spirit of people like them that I wanted to honour in my song and the video that goes with it.”

As soon as 2022 kicks in Hoodoo Gurus will be back on the road.
