Album of the week is solo effort The Cat by Ben Salter, guitarist, keyboarder of Aussie bands The Gin Club and Giants of Science. Most notable for the saxophone performances by one Julien Wilson, namesake of that Coolum pro surfer and ambassador of the "swoosh" logo. What namesake would you choose to change your name to (or use as an alias/pseudonym)? Slater? Wilson? Wright? Andersen? Petersen? Greenough? Simmons? Moondoggie? Gidget? I personally like the sound of Batman Brine, Duke Drouyn or Velzy Petersen.
Today's post is for my brine brother "H" (pictured surfing and with bug), who is hauling one of his many VW's somewhere between his bushy digs in the Noosa hinterland and the crispy burbs of Melbourne. Travel safe mate.
Abstract resin tint art work taken at Casa HV is by H's fave shaper Ian Chisholm of South Coast Longboards. Have a colourful, glassy weekend (it's Spring after all)
