The theme today was ‘Said, Say, Saying’.
I realised I’d written one of these myself many years ago – in the late 80s, early 90s – one of my first songs for The Warner Brothers.
Very chuffed at RRR this day that Dave Evans had learned the Marcel Borrack arrangement from my Night Parrots album.
Thanks Dave! And thanks to my webmaster Thatch for the brilliant EQ.
Bass – Nathan Farrelly; Accordion and BVs- Dave Evans; Lap Steel – Ed Bates; Guitar and Vocal – Dan Warner
On this Sunday, the topic was ‘News’.
Just the week before, thanks to my mate Gerard, I’d seen John Prine at The Palais in St Kilda.
Every song was a gem. Including this one – ‘6 O’Clock News’.
Bass and BVs – Nathan Farrelly; Accordion and BVs – Dave Evans; Guitar and Vocal – Dan Warner
This week, Ella Hooper was the surprise guest on the Warner Corner segment.
The theme was ‘Global’- we had a big singalong on the cracking Tears for Fears anti-war hit from the 80s ‘Everybody Wants To Rule The World’.
Thanks heaps to Ella – hope to see you back in the Corner soon!

The first Warner Corner segment for 2019 – and the whole band was in…
The theme was ‘teaching’ – I went for the past tense and this great song from Ryan Adams’ Easy Tiger album.
The band just finding its feet in the new year…
Lap steel – Ed Bates; Bass and BVs – Nathan Farrelly; Accordion and BVs – Dave Evans; Violin – Greg Field; Guitar and Vocal – Dan Warner
The theme this week was ‘Party’- the last show for 2018.
Thought we’d play the Ricky Nelson song Garden Party, about his performance at the Rock ‘n’ Roll Revival concert at Madison Square Garden in 1971. He endured a cool reception.
Much like we do in Warner Corner each week from our host, JvG.
Happy New Year.
