Australia’s Dirty Three Tour in September, Dingoes Babies Crocodiles Dundees Fosters Vegemite Wallabies I See You’ve Played Knifey Spoony Before

For the last few years, Australia’s Dirty Three have been a bit too consumed with other ventures to make time for their characteristically creaky jam sessions. While violinist Warren Ellis has been busy tending his beard and playing teeny tiny guitars with Nick Cave, guitarist Mick Turner and drummer Jim White have occupied their time as backing musicians on albums by the likes of Cat Power, Bonnie "Prince" Billy and PJ Harvey. The pair has even put out a couple of EPs as The Tren Brothers, making Dirty Three’s recent reconvening all the more remarkable. Inactive since their 2005 LP Cinder, the unkempt trio will play a host of dates this coming September, including a date at All Tomorrow’s Parties New York where they’ll perform 1998’s Ocean Songs in all its disjointed glory. Oh, to be middle aged, hairy and Australian again!
