Halfway: Droput / Honey I Like You
Double A side - digital release, October 2013.
The first single from the new Halfway album Any Old Love (Feb 2014).
Charlie Horse – Strange Passengers
P1-51 / September 2013
Our first interstste signing, may we present Charlie Horse. Sometime's it's good to step away from style and concentrate on substance - a good rock album is eternal. Charlie Horse's punk-infused take on Americana sounds both punchy and ragged, like Patti Smith fronting Crazy Horse....this is seriously promising stuff.
WE ALL WANT TO – Streets Of Your Town CD Single
P149-SP / August 12th 2103
WAWT recorded this version of The Go-Between's classic song, and what a version it is – upbeat, respectful to the original, and yet quintessentially WE ALL WANT TO, with that unique blend of Tim and Skye’s voices soaring and the band ripping out the well-known tune with maximum enthusiasm.
CD includes "We're Not Perfect" from Come Up Invisible.

Four critically acclaimed studio albums (including one double album), two compilations of out takes & rarities; one live album; supports for acts such as You Am I, Midlake, Iron & Wine, Weddings, Parties, Anything, Soundtrack of Our Lives and Band of Horses; collaborations with Tim Rogers and Mick Thomas; tours with our friends The Drones, theredsunband, Andrew Morris, The Kill Devil Hills, Mexico City, Liam Finn and Mike Noga; trips to Canada, the United States and New Zealand; gigs on the top of skyscrapers, in old convict prisons, on a huge ferry in the Cook Strait and a little ferry in the Brisbane River; gigs at at least three weddings and countless parties; at festivals from Port Fairy to Bluesfest to The Big Day Out to Peat’s Ridge to The Gympie Muster to Woodford; all over Australia from Margaret River to Townsville to Maitland; members spread from Brisbane to Melbourne to Nottingham to Stockholm to Vancouver and back: for a bunch of friends who met at an open mic night, The Gin Club have not done too badly over the past ten years.
To celebrate we’re hitting the road and re-releasing our debut, self-titled album (also known as Virginibus Puerisque) on double gatefold vinyl. Recorded in a day at Brisbane’s Airlock studios for the princely sum of $500, and mixed and mastered in Scotty Regan’s bedroom, the album was nonetheless deemed worthy enough to be the first release on Simon Homer’s Plus One label, our home to this day. To our surprise it became something of an underground sensation and propelled the band from being little more than a loose side project into a much more serious proposition. It features the now classic tunes “Wylde Bitch”, “You Make It Hard”, “Dear Rose” and “Cinderella” as well as many more. Now it can be yours on glorious vinyl!
AND COME AND HELP US CELEBRATE!

Sydney’s triple J radio described the sound as “big, bluesy guitars with twisted narrative delivered through a rusty howl from Crystal up front”
Brisbane’s 4ZZZ radio said “stone cold and menacing, that’s what comes to mind listening to this single from Sydney-siders Charlie Horse…Alt country rock with the same tones and themes as Nick Cave or Patti Smith are renowned for”
With their single ‘Deep Water’ receiving extensive play on radio across the country, Charlie Horse’s fourth trip to Queensland will showcase their second album ‘Strange Passengers’, as well as crowd favourites from their critically acclaimed first album ‘I Hope I Am Not A Monster’.
The critics said:
“an impressive debut album of heroic widescreen rock ‘n roll” 8/10 DRUM MEDIA
“a thoroughly enjoyable release of brilliantly twisted emotions” 4/5 SYDNEY MORNING HERALD
“Dark brooding works: ragged glory” 4/5 STACK MAGAZINE
“Charlie Horse’s punk-infused take on Americana sounds both punchy and ragged, like Patti Smith fronting Crazy Horse….this is seriously promising stuff.” 3.5/5 ROLLING STONE MAGAZINE
“On the evidence of this album, there is every prospect that Rose and McDonald could blossom into one of the great female vocalists/ male guitar slinger combinations we’ve uncovered in Australia.” RHYTHMS MAGAZINE
