Mental As Anything - Goat Tracks In My Sandpit
Nearly 40 years of recording and non stop touring. 25 top 40 hits in Australia. Sustained international airplay and Mentals are still at it.
Martin Plaza and Greedy Smith are always writing songs. They can't stop! Here comes a loony chunkabilly track from Plaza.
Slide guitar harmonica and laconic vocal take us to his bedlam. -Goat Tracks In My Sandpit-. A troubled soul?
Recorded in Martin Plaza's Sandpit and A Sharp In Riverwood. Plaza obliquely pays tribute to Brian Wilson of the Beach Boys referencing his famous living
room sandpit where Brian wrote his songs and faced his personal demons.
Plaza's demons?: phantom footprints? unseen goats drinking all his cans beer?
Shades of the Nips perhaps. Produced by Martin and Steve James who produced Mentals take on RocknRoll Music for Young Einstein.
In the can and just around the corner is a five track EP featuring the
Mentals current lineup of Martin Cilia From the Atlantics on guitar, Jacob
Cook on drums and from Mondo Rock, Casey Chambers and
Jimmy Barnes James Gillard on bass and bvs. Five new songs
Written by Greedy and Martin that Show the range and depth of two
lifetimes in pop songwriting.
A five track EP, a real smorgasbord of song, will appear after Xmas

Event description
Lloyd Spiegel launches his new CD 'This Time Tomorrow' at the Mullumbimby Ex-services Club, July 21.

‘This Time Tomorrow’ was written as Lloyd travelled through Europe, Central and North America and delivers driving rhythms that return Spiegel to his gut bucket blues roots. Shady and colourful characters spread out over continents and decades, through places forgotten and familiar.

“Australian blues and roots icon Lloyd Spiegel, in his first Bluesfest appearance, holds his own full house in the palm of his hand, just him and his trusty Cole Clark, a full swag of songs, a full tote of stories told with humour and aplomb, the man able to make his guitar do anything at all as he tells tales both tall and true, his own superbly written material marrying with blues standards in a way few others are able to manage. The man is a mountain, he’ll surely be back.” - Rolling Stone Magazine
