A FEW WORDS
A 30-year veteran of the Australian rock’n’roll scene, McCann knows something about the brutal reality of the independent music scene. After cutting his teeth in the vibrant Perth music community, McCann moved to Sydney in the early 1990s where he joined the Hard-Ons spin-off outfit Nunchukka Superfly and formed Harpoon before moving back to Perth and the first line up of The Drones and an association with Kill Devil Hills. He moved to Melbourne in the mid 2000s to pursue a variety of solo and collaborative projects – early solo albums were recorded by and featured Gareth Liddiard of The Drones and a young Aaron Cupples and also featured Jim Selene of Bloodloss – punctuated with Europe tours to support releases on Bang! Records and Beast Records.
‘Forces at Work’ is the new single from his forthcoming album ‘Hit With Love’ out on Cheersquad Records & Tapes in September 2023. ‘Hit With Love’ was produced by Rob Younger of Radio Birdman and the New Christs who produced every second great Australian rock record in the 80s and 90s (Died Pretty, Hard-Ons, Lime Spiders, Celibate Rifles, Hoodoo Gurus etc) and who more recently produced Civic’s Taken By Force.
‘Forces at Work’ would be at home in the booze stained venues and shagpile carpet sharehouses of Australian inner-city music scenes of yore.
