SANDGATE trivia

Here's some Sandgate lyrical reference trivia too for the curious listener

Flinders Parade - Jamie is a real character and he does sing elvis tunes usually outside woolworths, or at least he did anyway.

Balls Deep In Boondall - for the non-Brisbane people the B.E.C is the Boondall Entertainment Centre.

Cool fact - I.B.I.S used to just be a local unofficial saying that stood for "I Believe In Sandgate" but when they built the new mini shopping complex over the road from the war memorial they actually named it the "IBIS" shopping centre. They slapped the image of an IBIS on the front of the building and underneath it was written for the first time "I Believe In Sandgate".It was originally going to stand for "It's beautiful in Sandgate" but I don't think anyone was going to stand for that!





Toff in Town show was total radness. They gave us a carton of beer, a fancy band room and wine exciting times. ACTOR BUDDHISTS WERE AMAZING

FRANCE

By the way I am moving to France in April I'll be back though with another album. I will tour the album in France probably too. Gotta get my ass into gear.
