Colin Hay on Best Shows and Dreamscapes

I had the same feeling about Men at Work as you did Gary, didn't hate it but didn't love it either, though I found the "fried out Kombi, hippie trail head full of zombie" and "Vegemite" references intersting enough to look them up...but I bought "Fierce Mercy", and liked it quite a bit...it's excellent, and the cover art is thought provoking...enjoyable interview...

Growing up in Melbourne Australia in the 70s, I was a Men At Work fan, though never did see one of their legendary gigs at the Central Club Hotel in Richmond. My view is that Colin's solo material is far superior to MAW stuff. I have seen Colin perform on many occasions and his shows are an absolute joy.
