Mama's Biscuits and Gravy


Mama's Biscuits and Gravy: (June 2010)  Every songwriter eventually writes a song about Mama!!  Biscuits and Gravy is a real southern breakfast standard.  Homemade biscuits made with flour, Crisco Shortening and Milk.  Gravy (sometimes referred to as Sopping Gravy or Milk Gravy)is made from leftover grease in the frying pan (after you've cooked up a batch of bacon or sausage), you add flour to the grease until it browns and add condensed milk, stirring it to it thickens.  My father (along with most southerners) ate this every morning for breakfast, along with some bacon and eggs.  He lived to be 84.  But take a minute to think about 1945, where you had to build a fire in the stove and get it hot enough to bake biscuits.  Mama says it wasn't until the mid 50's that we finally got an electric stove... THINGS TO KNOW:  I want to personally thank Willie Nelson for the rhyme of Navy and Gravy from his song Pick Up The Tempo!!

The Moonee Valley Drifters are: Tom Forsell--rhythm guitar/vocals/accordion, Nick Grant--lead guitar/vocals, John Brockton--drums/vocals, Paul Pyle--bass, Nick summers--steel guitar.

The various band members have played with Doug Mansfield's Dust Devils, Truckasaurus, The Blues Shift, Doctor Doowop, The Rhythm Rustlers, and The Baylor Brothers among others.

The Moonee Valley Drifters are alive and well and play regularly around Melbourne venues including the Retreat Hotel in Brunswick, Port Albert Hotel in Williamstown, The Espy in St.Kilda, The Lomond Hotel in East Brunswick, and The Bendigo Hotel in Collingwood. They play every week and their motto is Roll With The Punches, Make It Swing And Groove On Your Hunches.



If you loved Doug McIntyre’s first album, you’ll be over the moon about Australian Son. The young artist has quickly become known and as a great chronicler of life in the bush with clever lyrics and catchy tunes. His vocals are strong and warm. Album number two continues Doug’s great love for the Great Southern Land. Characters he knows, bush life, childhood memories, and stories from our past, all come to life. Here is a song writer who paints the Australian character from the heart. Here is a song writer with something intelligent and insightful to say about the Australian story.  Modern and traditional styles combine to form what can only be described as Doug’s own brand of Australian Country.  Australian Son is fresh and up-beat. We see an artist who writes about Australia for Australian’s- and he sings like one too!  Every track makes you feel proud to be living under southern skies.

Restless Wind - second album release for Lana Ross

Two singles distributed to radio NfS in Australia, Hillcrest internationally.
An extraordinary year followed for Lana Ross when she released her debut album ‘Stories To Tell’ in Tamworth in January 2008.  

Her second album ‘Restless Wind’ released last month promises a similar scenario for the Australian singer songwriter, based in Mackay Queensland.

Two singles were immediately released to radio.  ‘Little Western Gully’ on NfS in Australia, and ‘The Walls’ to the international market through Canadian distributor Hillcrest Marketing Service.

A product of renown producer Lindsay Butler, who also produced Lana’s first album, LBS management says ‘Lana obviously felt the pressure to say the least!, but if this is the end result of being under pressure, then it’s a great outcome.  The Industry is very excited at what will come in future albums from this talented singer songwriter.’

Lana says ‘Lindsay and I felt the pressure to deliver a great second album after the success of the first album.  It was Lindsay's cool head and meticulous production that has made this a fantastic album.’

Seven of the songs are written by Lana herself.  Other tracks include a Shirley Thoms classic and selected songs from songwriters Ben Jacobs and Manfred Vigars who have contributed a track each, both co written with Shaza Leigh.  The Lana Ross | Shaza Leigh track “The Walls’ is the first selection for the international market.
