The Black Sorrows
A cool 21 albums down the line, Joe Camilleri's Black Sorrows are at the peak of their game with Citizen John, the new album with its roots in the familiar terrain of sweet, platinum radio rhythm and blues and dark reflections of modern times.
"It's all very nice to get a pat on the back and 'Hey I saw you in '78,' but I want people to judge me on this album," says the man who still plays 160 shows a year, from his home base in country Victoria to the music halls of Europe.
"This is the album I've just made and it's about moving forward. To me, it's always about moving forward."
