A Cruel and Desperate Man?

Cruel Desperate Man (The Wives of Solomon)

Text description of video

Artist: Anna Burley with Weddings Parties Anything

Anna Bunrley first came to notice as a foundation member of the Killjoys, a band that attracted a significant following in the vibrant Melbourne pub scene in 1980 and 90s. Since then she has lent her astoundingly beautiful voice to many projects including, most recently, Shackleton, a country folk trio with Mick Thomas and Liz Stringer.

Songwriter: Mick Thomas

As the frontman for seminal Aussie group Weddings Parties Anything and an established solo artist in his own right, Mick Thomas is renowned as a storyteller. Boasting an ear for rich, warmly weathered folk, he has a knack for nailing the minutiae of Australian life without resorting to cliches.
