We have another set of Spring tour dates including some venues in the ACT, Melbourne and on the NSW South Coast at Huskisson. They are all great gigs for us but we are particularly excited about our second visit to Melbourne where we will, once again, be enjoying the atmosphere at The Catfish in Fitzroy. The audience was very welcoming last time and seemed to like our blend of blues, country, folk and rock.
None of us remember the exact beers we had at The Catfish last time... except that they are very memorable! We think they were New Zealand brews. We are very happy to have the chance to be reunited with them.
We have now teamed up with Ang Perusco on harmonica and vocals (and, of course, guitar) to record our second album Corrugated blues. We launched it at the National Folk Festival in March.
TheGuitarCases second album: Corrugated blues — available at our gigs or online at Bandcamp.
Our second cd has twelve original songs that explores a blues direction with a bit of country and folk mixed in.
This album introduces Ang Perusco with some mean harmonica playing! He also plays some great acoustic guitar on a few tracks.
Other new stuff includes Andrew Tatnell bringing cigar box slide guitar to a couple of tracks and Andy Daniels on cajon drum featuring on most songs. So our sound is a bit more layered and bluesy for this album. Let us know what you think!
Many thanks to Sam King of Merloc studios for recording and engineering. And thanks again to Kimmo Vennonen of KV Productions for mastering and Troy Horse for replication and printing.
TheGuitarCases debut album — available online at Bandcamp.

Many thanks to Ian Blake of Blue Bear studios in Latham who has been very patient with us in the production process. And thanks to Kimmo Vennonen of KV Productions who did a fantastic job mastering, and Troy Horse for replication and printing.
As well as the original duo lineup, we can play as a trio or a four piece band with Ang Perusco on harp and James Newhouse on double bass. Check out the band page for more info.
