Riches And Rags

2005 was a pretty good year in the life of a band that had broken up thirteen years previously!

Alistair Hulett toured Australia and played all the folk festivals, as well as some memorable sets with former Roaring Jack colleague Steph Miller and with new blood Sydney City Trash. Steph's excellent album Strange Sea (released 2004) received airplay on ABC Radio and on other community radio stations. The Roaring Jack Archives moved to its new home, http://www.roaringjack.com . And as the year drew to a close, Alistair Hulett released a cracker of an album in Riches And Rags.

2006 looks to be just as busy. Alistair's off to the USA to tour with David Rovics in April. Then there's talk of a new Roaring Jack release on Jump Up Records, this one a compilation of live and previously unreleased studio material. Can't wait for that!

This is the Roaring Jack Archives Blog, the latest venture of the ever-expanding empire of the Roaring Jack Archives. I will use this site to post news relating to the band and its former members.

You're welcome to add news items too, if you come across anything newsworthy. Cheers!
