This album features Ian and Ree and some of the current members of changoTRee before the recent name change from holycow.
All songs written by Ian T, except where noted.
The songs are beautiful, bittersweet views of life, luck, rusted cars, space junk, environmental-political activism, third world rip offs, surf-travelling, demons, love, money & survival in this age!
holycow bannd has always been a precarious bus ride/journey that has seen lots of diverse musicians jump on board from time to time. This fluid line up has been a vehicle for many creative artists that have all added to the 'messed up concoctions' of trippy, groove, roots, folk rags. I have the keys somewhere in the studio and have driven the thing as a duo, trio and as an overloaded 6 piece band. It's always been fresh and never quite the same as last time. Sometimes on track and other times exquisitely derailed and off-road!
The following albums are Ian T's songs in various line ups of holycow that preceed changoTRee.
The title track"Bradbury's Luck" was based on Steven Bradbury's great achievement in winning Australia's first gold medal in the Winter Olympics 2002. Steve was kind enough to appear in the clip and since then we have become good friends playing at his book launch, wedding and had a couple of surfs together. Thanks mate!
This album was made with the support and invaluable assistance of Phil Jones and staff at ARTS Victoria (via the grant) and their inspired initiative, help and fostering creative independent music in this part of the world.

This is the only time that Ians holycow, worked and recorded this project as a 3 p band ... Just 3 guys bashing it out, .. for better or worse!
.... in the most part over a ten day period in the middle of summer whilst being somewhat oxygen deprived in a small and very hot room with two other sweaty band members.
.... The recording of said album was tracked in the back of Patons Farm Machinery Factory. A shed outback in Mornington Industrial estate, The "studio" gave us the rhythm tracks , .. and subsequent overdubs at various beach shacks with a digital 16 track, some instruments and much gear as could be mustered.
A collection of like-minded musicians playing with a certain spirit and vibe, together for serious fun (quote Dennis 1+1 unquote)
Thank you so much to everyone directly and indirectly who helped the creation of the music. From the musicians, friends, recording peoples, to the printers and salespeople. Thanks heaps. We are all travelers hitch-hiking around the stars. Best we enjoy, live, love, learn and play a bit of music along the way. To my special moonbeams - Sophie, Allie and Mishy (and Ben... on the way!) This is for you
The first 6 tracks are totally acoustic recorded with Samantha Rayne (who will one day share with the world her beautiful vocals n song writing. Come on Sammy!
