Event description

Mick Thomas’ Roving Commission “Where Only Memory Can Find You“ album launch

Following a hectic end to 2022 - including a full national tour supporting their brilliant Back In the Day EP (which was voted #6 Best Australian Album in the Rhythms Readers' Poll even though it is not an album!) - Mick Thomas' Roving Commission will release their new album Where Only Memory Can Find You on May 5 then head out on a national tour starting at the National Folk Festival in April.

Where Only Memory Can Find You marks the return to the fray of Mick's former Weddings, Parties, Anything bandmate, violinist Jen Anderson - joining founding WPA accordion player Mark “Squeezebox Wally” Wallace in the Roving Commission ranks.

Adding to the bolstered female presence is the fact that, by some quirk of fate, six of the nine songs on the album are co-writes by Thomas with prominent Australian female singer-songwriters; two tracks with Amy Saunders from ‘90s Indigenous folk trio Tiddas, and one each with Saunders' bandmate Lou Bennett, Oz country legend Sara Storer, Melbourne veteran Barb Waters, and Brooke Taylor, who also happens to be a recent addition to Mick's Roving Commission.

Where Only Memory Can Find You takes its name from a line in one of Thomas's most famous songs, "Away Away", which he first recorded with Weddings Parties Anything in 1987, and which Mick and band reprise on the new album.
