Scott Owen of The Living End is on loan to The Whitlams for the ‘Early Years ’93-‘97’ tour starting in September.

The early years of The Whitlams was top heavy in Double Bass. Scott has been recruited to recreate the original sound of the “Introducing The Whitlams”, “Undeniably The Whitlams” and “Eternal Nightcap” albums.

Tim Freedman says, “Scott and I have been talking about this idea for five years, and at last our schedules have clicked. Terepai and Scott will absolutely explode in these early songs, and it will be thrilling to hear the energy that Andy Lewis brought to the first line-up so long ago on stage once again.”

Andy Lewis, the original bass player for The Whitlams and who played on those albums died in 2000 at age 33. The song ‘Blow Up The Pokies’ from the ‘Love This City’ album is about Lewis’ gambling addiction.

The Whitlams are Tim Freedman on piano and vocals, Jak Housden on guitar, Terepai Richmond on drums, and newest member, Ian Peres, on Hammond organ and electric bass.
