about

'Chimney' is the tantalising first taste of new music from WA’s The Southern River Band
and a preview of their upcoming second album Rumour and Innuendo due in August
2019.
Hot off the back of a coast-to-coast tour, exemplified by two sold out shows at
Melbourne’s Northcote Social Club and Cherry Bar, SRB have been connecting one-on-
one with Australian music fans drawn to the guitar wielding, make your face hurt from
smiling, non-stop party that is Australia’s new favourite frontman, Cal Kramer.
Produced by Dan Carroll and recorded at RADA Studios “Chimney” is a relentless white-
hot boogie that doesn’t let up, a touchstone for the style of take no prisoners, high-
octane, rock ‘n’ roll that The Southern River Band have steadily developed a word of
mouth reputation for. With huge riffs, breakneck licks and shake your hips grooves that
make you feel thirsty just listening, 'Chimney' is sure to bring the fire and continue
SRB’s rapid rise into the national consciousness.
With a video for Chimney due in June, more new music ahead of the new album to come
and undoubtedly plenty more killer live shows ahead, SRB are working hard at living up
to their status as one of the hottest bands in Australia right now.

lyrics

SMOKE LIKE A CHIMNEY
DRINK LIKE A FISH
YOU KNOW YOU CALLED THE DOCTOR
YOU’VE ONLY GOT ONE WISH

HE’S GOT SOME GREEN FOR THE BLUES
TO TAKE THEM ALL AWAY
ALL THROUGH THE NIGHT TIME
BUT COME THE BREAK OF DAY

LIKE A HAND ON A SHOULDER
IN A CITY SQUARE
YOU SIGNED THE DEAL BOY
COME ON NOW FAIRS FAIR

LIKE A HAND ON A SHOULDER
IN A CITY SQUARE
YOU SIGNED THE DEAL BOY
COME ON NOW FAIRS FAIR

NOW YOU’RE BACK IN JAIL AGAIN
YOU BROKE YOUR VRO
YOU WANNA EAT SHIT PISS LAY DOWN
THEY TELL YOU YES OR NO

THERE’S NO GREEN FOR THE BLUES
TO TAKE THEM ALL AWAY
ALL THROUGH THE NIGHT TIME
BUT COME THE BREAK OF DAY

LIKE A HAND ON A SHOULDER
IN A CITY SQUARE
YOU SIGNED THE DEAL BOY
COME ON NOW FAIRS FAIR

LIKE A HAND ON A SHOULDER
IN A CITY SQUARE
YOU SIGNED THE DEAL BOY
COME ON NOW FAIRS FAIR
