9 June 2023

Brian Cadd and Graeham Goble

People like Harry Vanda & George Young, Graeham Goble, Terry Britten, Johnny Young, Brian Cadd, Jim Keays, Ross Wilson, Billy Thorpe and Russell Morris wrote some of the most memorable and iconic Australian songs of the ’60s and ’70s. Songs that you go to often on the Bang a Gong web site.

A newly updated and re-published book called Songwriters Speak gives a unique insight into the lives of 45 of our best known songwriters.

Author Debbie Kruger‘s collection of in-depth interviews was critically acclaimed on its first release in 2005. After being out of print for the last 15 years, yet still in demand, Bouley Bay Books has partnered with Debbie to bring this “buried treasure” of music writing back into circulation.

Included in Songwriters Speak are key songwriting members of legendary bands such as The Seekers, The Easybeats, The Twilights, Masters Apprentices, Daddy Cool, Axiom, Little River Band and Sherbet.
