One of Australia's most enigmatic bands, King Curly, has released a 20-track collection containing new works, best-loved songs and re-recorded/remixed material. It's a body of work that will provide newcomers with the opportunity to discover music already admired by the likes of Paul Kelly, Don Walker and Neil Finn. The fall and rise of King Curly was put together largely by fans, who sent their requests via the web. In some ways, it charts the band's progression over a ten-year period, from a three-piece with "King" Steve Appel, Elmo Reed, and Greg J Walker (now of Machine Translations), through to it's current incarnation as a four-piece with Appel, Reed, Zoe Hauptmann and John Hibbard. Two new tracks, Falling Downstairs and Dreams Come True bookend the collection, while the brilliant All I Want is Happiness (Track 14) is a fresh, live recording. The first single, Falling Downstairs was written as a soundtrack to a new AFC-funded animated short, "Dog", to be released later this year. The hilarious 'Viagra Remix' of Let's Have An Orgy is another one to look out for.
