Perfect Tripod "Australian Songs" album art
Australian Songs (Liberation)
Some of the best known voices in Australia (although not normally known for serious musical contributions) combine for this album of a cappella tributes to the Australian music industry. The cleverly-named Perfect Tripod is a combination of musical comedy legends Tripod and actor-singer-songrwiter-comedian Eddie Perfect (Offspring, Shane Warne: The Musical) and the album, as you would expect, is a compilation of covers of Australian songs by artists old and new (from Australian Crawl, Cold Chisel and the Bee Gees to Gotye, Lanie Lane and Clare Bowditch). While they don’t always hit the right notes (figuratively speaking only) with their versions they mostly hit the mark. Overkill (Men At Work), The One (Clare Bowditch), Reminiscing (Little River Band), Better the Devil You Know (Kylie Minogue) and Not Pretty Enough (Kasey Chambers) are some of the highlights.
