Digging Deep In Drones Tune Territory

Friday 16th October / presented by Graeme Watson

Any new release by the Drones is met with a combination of anticipation and excitement and their new song is no exception. It’s a rich, dense, daring, bold, complex, controversial and confrontational track called Taman Shud – that takes aim at Australian culture at large.

The intense lyrics take a swing at prime ministers, patriotism, asylum seekers, the carbon tax and the Murdoch press – including a suitably baffled Andrew Bolt.

The title is a reference to the Taman Shud mystery, an unsolved 1948 case of a man who turned up dead on Somerton Beach in South Australia.

Graeme Watson spoke to Drones front man and lyricist Gareth Liddiard about the lyrics and the meaning behind them.
