Undressing the Song with The Bend

‘Undressing the Song' with The Bend.
Fane Flaws (guitar & vox),
Tony Backhouse (guitar, bass & vox),
Peter Dasent (keyboards),
Andy Gladstone (drums & vox)
celebrate 40 years of songwriting as members of the bands; Blerta, Spats, The Crocodiles,
I am Joe's Music, Blessed Relief, No Engine and The Bend.

This show is all about songs & songwriting. It is a concert of original music, where The Bend look back at songs from each era, talk about what it was like to be on the road playing their own music back in the dark ages, & why & how the songs exist… a strange & frank expose of the invisible thread of consciousness, inevitable in a long term ‘body of work’…
Over the last 40 years, these talented guys have written a heap of music together, & played in a kludge of live bands & ongoing recording projects, having often wondered whether people had any idea of what their songs were actually about, why they existed or even how they came to be written - there were so many great stories there - so Fane Flaws sat down with Tony Backhouse and they wrote a show where they deconstructed the songs & exposed (what for them is) an esoteric, mysterious & often very amusing process.
Come hear the music & the stories in the intimacy of the Fairfield Ballroom.
