Cooler than Johnny Cash
Sometime ago, in the past, in the dark distant past, there was a band ..................
Long before highly rated entertainer Johnny Cash thought he might inject some fuel into his career by covering Neil Diamond's 'solitary man', Hobart's masters of the tasteful and melodic, the virtually unknown Dream Weavers, had slipped that number into their set in a mere canter. This band had a keen ear for a tune indeed and not the blind hearing of the rock snob. I know because I was there.
Anyway, anyone who knows anything about music knows that The Dream Weaver's Tor Fredheim is now a Mook of long standing. He has added melody and professionalism without curbing the band's alcoholic tendencies. However this is not my story to tell.
Having just cleaned out my HOTMAIL account today which has been clogged with some rather large scanned images of old clippings from THE MERCURY I have quickly cobbled this page together. These images I am told are of an archival nature. Once I used to have a copy of of Phoebe's little fanzine style portfolio of poster art which had a jolly good poster of this band. It would really make this page special. Oh well. Here's hoping the next installment is not too far away.
