Event Description

STEVE TYSON & THE TRAIN REX
Sunday
November 26, 7pm
Smiths Alternative, Canberra
(with special guest Betty Slim)

Songwriter Steve Tyson does darkness very well with regret-tinged songs of missed chances and jealous-rage murder tales, but he balances these with the songs with a twinkle in the eye or tongue in cheek.

Even when he’s writing about imminent climate catastrophe - see Theatre, one of the key tracks here - he never gets preachy or heavy. Tyson has not had the same profile as other chroniclers of the Australian experience like Shane Howard or John Schumann, but the tracks on this third solo set reveal a master song craftsman with a nuanced lyrical touch and strong melodies.
