I was a highwayman...

Indigo Rush used to rehearse mainly at Brett's work - a cabinet-making business in a warehouse-style building on the Bathurst highway, near to the Mars factory.

Here is a picture of it as it is today.(Click pictures to view larger...)

Imagine my surprise when I swing the view around and see this on the other side of the highway. BTW, I didn't know that this new building had been built at this location.

Ha ha ha! :)

Edit: I am reliably informed that Brett's old workplace was in fact demolished some time ago, and is now a thriving McDonald's outlet. Ironic, really...McDonalds was our band's road meal of choice when out and about!

Our gigs

I've been trying to remember lately some of the venues where we played gigs. Here is a list of places I can recall:

I've been trying to remember if we played any gigs in Orange, I can't recall. So if anyone can add to this list, please drop me a line in the comments or via Facebook!

Band photos...

Yeah baby.

Thanks to the magic of Facebook, I can finally share some photos of Indigo Rush in action.

These photos would be from about 1995, the first two showing us performing at Canowindra Golf Club, where we had a sort of semi-residency. Actually it was sort of my favourite venue, mainly because the guy kept inviting us back and paying us fairly well!

From left to right: Dap (guitar and vocals - I miss the Strat), Garry (bass, vocals and MIDI), Anthony (vocals and shaggy mop), Cameron (the hidden & glorious drummer) and Brett (guitar, vocals and funky stage moves).

 Below: a silly publicity shot of us ... somewhere in Bathurst.

It's back

Hey there readers

Thank God I saved my old IR blog as an .xml file. I've missed it lately so here it is, fully restored thanks to the ability to import blogs back into Blogger.
