Big Dingo emerged in 2014, played a handful of gigs, put out a tape, and then promptly broke up. Which sucks, because “Parramatta Man” is a stone-cold classic. But just like their (assumed) team, the Eels, you can throw all the shit you like at them…they’re gonna come back out onto the field and take out three Premierships in a row. Starting from now, there’s going to be three years of Grand Final Winning albums from Big Dingo, followed by thirty years of brutal losses. Hey, life ain’t a fairytale. Enjoy the glory while it lasts.
“Outback Golf” is the first take from the upcoming debut from Big Dingo – it’s got a brighter pop direction than their previous EP. Bubbling guitars dribble next to tocking percussion, whilst Charles Buddy Daaboul reminisces in that thoroughly Australian way of his – name checking meat pies and wombat poo within a few sentences of each other.
Catch the singlet-clad trio tomorrow night – they’re playing a free show at The Newtown Social Club, with The Cathys and Abigail and Daisy! They’ll also be launching “Outback Golf”, with Solid Effort in support, at The Vic on September 4th. Get along to at least 1 (one) of these shows!
