Sharkmouth is the latest album from one of this country's greatest and most re-spected singer/songwriters, Russell Morris. The project was created after Russell had read about a 1920's Gangster from Sydney, Shark Jaws. This was the driving force behind a want to create an album including Australian characters from the 1920/30's era. As producer (and bass player), Mitch Cairns, explains: "To our knowledge, most "Australiana" characters have been portrayed in a traditional colonial folk sense, so we wanted to find a way to deliver the stories in a more mainstream vein whilst still placing them in a "vintage era". A blues style seemed to be the perfect fit!! We tried to keep the vibe of the album raw and honest with lots of textural instru-ments and sounds, but above all, it had to be simple and spacious. We are also very honoured to have some very special guests on the album, including Troy Cassar-Daley, Mark Lizotte and Renee Geyer." The album Sharkmouth has stories about Australian characters such as Phar Lap (Big Red), Les Darcy, The Dock Wars (Bout To Break), Mr Eternity, The Great Depression (Big House), Squizzy Taylor which are all moulded together in a melt-ing pot of swinging shuffles and delta grooves!
