We all know Pete lives for his music, his surfing, and his family and friends. Seems he is forever writing songs about drifting up and down the far South Coast of New South Wales in search of another beautiful wave. Pete has a number of surf buddies who share his love for the coast and those euphoric moments where sun, surf and a beautiful landscape all come together. South Coast Dreamtime goes out to those guys and everybody else who calls South Coast surf spots home. And yes, you can see from the photo that Pete is a kneeboarder ! Pete reckons you should do it on your knees !!
Pete wrote the song (well the reality in The Shed is often, as it is here, that ideas flow, and in this case Gus and Neil threw plenty of great ideas into the pot) sings it, and plays the drums. He is supported by Neil on Bass and Guitar, and Gus on Guitar. Neil did all the Production work. And Pete is delighted that Jem Savage was kind enough to chip in the skanky guitar work as well as those beautifully harmonised soprano sax lines. Thanks Jem, we are forever honoured that you add your magic to our songs from time to time.

WAVES THE STUFF OF LEGEND
LIKE PAMBULA RIVERMOUTH
EMPTY BREAKS THAT PROMISE

GUILLOTINES AND NO-TOES, SUNNY DAWN DELIGHT
DRIFT ON UP TO WAIRO BEACH, DOLPHIN POINT TONIGHT
FLAT ROCK ON A BIG SWELL, WE’LL GO TO PILGRIM’S FOR LUNCH
HEAD IN TO GREEN ISLAND, SNIFFIN OUT A HUNCH
AUSSIE PIPE AT SUMMERCLOUD, PAY YOUR TAXES TO THE BROS
