"Peg yr goon bag to the Hills Hoist and join me as the fruit bats fly overhead and I play a bunch of Queensland songs for you.
From punk rockers and literary heroes struggling under Joh's regime through all types of scenes in the nineties to the modern kids honing their sound at house parties and interwebbing them around the world. I'll talk to interesting folks too and paint a picture of what Queensland was like when I grew up there, complete with as many historical inaccuracies and subjective anecdotes as I can fit in two hours. The historians may curse me but I promise a sweet time for all."
To coincide with his Queensland special this week, Dan Kelly has given us an exclusive look at a brand new video clip.
'Back To Brisbane' features footage of Kelly running away from Melbourne to his old home city, all intercut with old Queensland Rugby League footage.
We'll let him explain further.
"I wrote this concept record about moving up to Northern New South Wales and Brisbane, to run away from my life in Melbourne, then running away again to come back home. I wrote all types of different characters, set around Nimbin and Brisbane and the Gold Coast, Stradbroke Island, all up the east coast on the Pacific Highway.
"For the Brisbane song I just imagined myself running back to visit my parents and then eventually I self-immolate in protest against the big Galilee Basin mine. So it ends quite badly. But I get to see my parents, which is great.
"For the film clip, basically I started riding up the Pacific Highway and then the band picks me up. Then I kept running up the Pacific Highway and across the Queensland border. Eventually I got to my folks’ place and gave them a big hug. I didn’t self-immolate. We tried to do that scene but I didn’t really want to set myself on fire and we didn’t have the budget for the right props.
"That’s the song, it’s not going to be on the record because the record’s a bit more meditative and groovy. But I thought it really suited this show and we just really enjoyed making the film clip, so I’m going old school and just putting out a video without trying to sell it on a record."
