Dog Trumpet 22/8/20
SUSS is proud to present Dog Trumpet.
Spearheaded by brothers Peter O’Doherty and Reg Mombassa, Dog Trumpet have been playing, writing and recording their music since the release in the early 90s of their first album Two Heads One Brain. Over the span of three decades there have followed another six critically acclaimed albums: Suitcase, Dog Trumpet, Antisocial Tendencies, River of Flowers and in 2013, the double album Medicated Spirits, nominated for that year’s Australian Music Prize album of the year, and the recently released The Great South Road.
Their poetic, at times absurdist lyrics are set against a sonic backdrop that could loosely be described as a meld of rock and roll, psychedelic folk, country and semi-abstract blues.
Dog Trumpet will be supported by singer songwriter Bernie Hayes, an Australian musical legend in his own right, he’ll be performing songs from his extensive musical repertoire.
Hosted by the irrepressible, undeniable, insurmountable Benito Di Fonzo.
