“These nine tracks strut with the carefree off-kilter charm of Jonathan Richman or Lou Reed and the same kind of raw, rugged romanticism.. A true gem that deserves the attention that famous episode recieved all those years ago”Record Collector
“There is a minimalist anit-folk vibe to Dermody’s songs.. muttering merrily through call-and-response lo-fi VU-addled gems ‘Distracted’ or ‘Bush’ where he ponders life from the outback” Uncut
“… the execution for his frustration is point perfect– his sleepily conversational vocals fold into his sunny, jangling guitars seamlessly” Pitchfork
Scott And Charlene’s Wedding continue with third album ‘Mid Thirties Single Scene’ out now on Fire Records.
Returning to Melbourne following a year of touring, with stints in New York and London and a trip globetrotting, three years have passed since a new SACW record dropped. Now into his thirties Craig Dermody continues to deal with the banalities of everyday life with his straight talking reflections on home life, keeping up the pace and missed opportunities – all encased with his usual contempt.
Scott & Charlene’s Wedding’s Craig Dermody is the voice of a generation, it just so happens to be a generation mired in dead end jobs while smiling into the sunshine as they wonder when someone is going to show up and call the cops on the party again.
