Jack Holt, personal manager to Jock Cheese, a founding member of mythical Melbourne institution TISM, is joined by Matt Jeffrey in The Collaborators for a special evening celebrating nothing in particular. Why do bands always have to be celebrating something? Can’t they just get together and blast out a shipload of noise and give the audience a freaking great evening? Anyway… there will be new tunes, songs from The Collaborators top-notch CD, and fellow former TISM member Leak Van Vlalen’s next-door neighbour Sean Kelly will be joining the band to crank the guitar up on choice early TISM material such as ‘John Bonham’s Coke Roadie’, ‘I Drive A Truck’, ‘Vote For Boat’ and other TISM bangers.
Special guest vocalist for the evening will be Melbourne legend, Fred Negro.
This re-emergence of the reclusive one ties in with the recent re-releases of TISM’s catalogue and earliest material. Oh, this will be a fun night!
