The Double Interactive Deluxe Boxed Set! 'The Chess Set'



The new double set called 'The Chess Set' comprises two very different albums.

Disc Two; 'The Descent of Age' features a completely new set of the gathered journalistic songs which have defined my work over the last ten years.

The stories look at individual lives of real Australians and seek to grapple with the lessons they may hold for each of us.

For those who have been at the shows as these songs have grown in public, the CD includes a strong emphasis on the songs that investigate the challenges of growing older and the acceptance and accomodation that the process often requires.

They include -:
1- The Trolley Song
2- The Lovin' of Bush
3- Eighteen wheels
4- The Circle of The Bells
5- A River Too Wild
6- Turning 40 into 24
7 -The Light
8- Coming Home
9 - Blame it On The Baby Boomers
10- Neither should I
11- Hard Times for Heroes
12- Wildflowers
13 -Goodbye my Restless Child and the Poem
14- Wilpena Dawn

Disc One, 'The Age of Dissent' is perhaps it's antithesis. Far from 'Local Rag' type stories, the songs deal with the stuff of The National Editorials. This CD is almost entirely concerned with the macro issues which have beset our nation in the last five years and it features many of the overtly political songs which have forced their way into the show over the last 12 months.

1- Keepers of the Flame
2- Who Is That Refugee?
3- Exiles on the Glory Road
4- Until It's happening to you (10,000 Away)
5- Namatjira.
6- The Cod That Ate The Moon
7- What Goes Around Comes Around
8- Marylin Monroe was a size 14
9- Who Are These People? (The Eden Cannery Song)
11- Quality of Light
12- Money to be made and the poem
13- Roses Lagoon at Dawn

Vale Ron Drummond

As many of you are aware, October 2003 saw the passing of Pat's Elder brother, Ron

Ron, was heavily involved in Pat's recording and performing career, and in production, with multiple other acts including Eddie and The Starlighters, The Zarzoff Brothers and The Conway Bros. Band throughout the 80's and 90's. He passed away at Sydney's Royal Prince Alfred hospital from complications arising from a year-long battle with lymphoma.

On August 7th we organised a fundraiser for Ron's family and the Leukemia Foundation who did so much to support him and his family during the last year; at The Harp Hotel 900 Princes Hwy, Tempe.

The night featured some auctions of Ronaldo memorabilia. There were a lot great memories shared. Clair and family wish to express our gratitude to all who attended and supported the night.

A whole new section has now been added to this site dealing with Ron's history. Thanks to the large number of people who attended The celebration of his life in October.
