    some background on the performers

    Darren "D.C" Cross (Gerling, Jep and Dep) is an Australian guitarist and storyteller. Cross’ music is inspired by the 1960’s and 1970’s mainstays of American and British acoustic guitar (John Fahey, Roy Harper, Leo Kottke, Elizabeth Cotton, Nick Drake, Bert Jansch) but he is consciously forging his own musical identity within an Australian landscape. Cross has just released his third solo D.C Cross album Hot-wire the Lay-low (Australian Escapist pieces for guitar) which was written in and inspired by rural N.S.W.

    Mark Mordue is a writer, editor, journalist and poet. He is the author of the biography Boy on Fire – The Young Nick Cave (HarperCollins Australia, 2020). He has also published the poetry collection Darlinghurst Funeral Rites (Transit Lounge, 2018) and the travel memoir Dastgah: Diary of a Headtrip (Allen and Unwin, 2001). He is the winner of a 1992 Human Rights Media Award and the 2010 Pascall Prize: Australian Critic of the Year. His novel There’s No Telling will be published in 2023; with the second volume of his Nick Cave biography project to follow in 2024. His work cuts across New Journalism, poetry and memoir, sometimes all at once.
