NGURRA TJUKURRPA (Law Stories Of Home) - Walungurru (Kintore) Community

*Scroll Down for English & Pintupi-Luritja Translation* ABOUT THE SONG/VDEO: Red Dust Community Trip March 18 - 22, 2019. Here it is.... the first song from the first Red Dust Music Trip of 2019! Our first morning in Kintore was spent sitting down with the elders and Kintore mob chatting about what kind on project they'd like to take place this trip. A meeting was called in the afternoon, at the basketball courts to talk about the week. Most of the most senior men and women came. It was decided that Red Dust would record some traditional songs and that would happen straight away, so we quickly got our recording gear and cameras and let the performances begin. (You can see this video here: https://youtu.be/tGuazoVb21A) The community also wanted to have a ceremony video recorded during the visit, a huge honor for the visiting Red Dust Team. The community was also keen to write a song about the beginnings of the Kintore township.... Our Story! It was decided that the Red Dust Music Team (Realtone) would set up in the green shed and the song writing process and recording would involve all ages from the community. The young men and women of the CDP program were the first to be involved, contributing many of the lyrics of the song. Then some of the senior men, worked on the melody and refined some of the lyrics. The band included Trevor Dixon on drums, Michael Gallagher on lead guitar, Rodney on bass, Francis on rhythm guitar and Trevor on acoustic guitar. The main vocals were sung by Michael and Cheryl, with the fellas and girls from the CDP singing backups. The bridge was written and sung by the CDP girls.

Minyma Kutjarra - Walungurru (Kintore) Young Women & Young Men's Program.

Red Dust Young Men’s and Women’s Programs/ Capacity Building. May 5 -May 11 2019 Red Dust are committed to supporting and building capacity with young men and young women in Walungurru/Kintore through dedicated programs and camps. Red Dust’s Brett Wheeler, Wayne Glenn and Steve Lane (Realtone) headed out to Kintore to run introductory songwriting and audio technology programs in conjunction with the Ngurratjuta CDP running workshops with both the young men and young women. This included beat making, basic recording, audio signal flow and songwriting. Both groups were keen to write a song about the tjurrkupa (dreaming story) about 2 women that came up from South Australia to Kintore and stopping at a rock hole that the community was going out to visit later in the week as part of the C.L.C Ranger program. Uncle Joe Young was asked to tell the story and Preston wrote it all down. The beat was made up with the young women with Gerard and Jordan. Local musician Michael Gallagher then played the guitars, providing the foundation for the song. Chez from the young women’s group then recorded the keyboards and Francis the bass guitar. The melody for the song was then work-shopped and two vocalist chosen from both of the groups to sing. Finally, we recorded Joe Young introducing the story. With the song recorded, a convoy of nine 4wd’s headed south to follow the story of the Two Women via the salt plane, 2 women rock hole and Walden Rock/Miturkatjiri. The convoy was led by the Old people and the C.L.C mob and many of the community. The video was filmed on location and edited in Walungurru. Francis: Bass Michael: Guitars Uncle Joe Young: spoken intro Chez: keyboards Vocals: Chez, Francis. Beats: Gerard and the Young Women Produced by Realtone (Wayne Glenn & Steve Lane) with Brett Wheeler and the young men and women of Walunguru (Kintore)

CAMBER - Steve Lane And The Autocrats

Camber is Steve Lane And The Autocrats first single from the forthcoming third album 'The Revenge Of The Lawn'. Honed from years of song-smithing at the coal face, Lane has produced what he calls his first true single… a convivial highway alt country rock cruiser with a strong undercurrent of Americana, no doubt fuelled by their recent successful showcases in Canada. Camber celebrates relationships of substance with some kilometres under the belt, and how small adjustments can make the ride smoother. The song was good enough to attract the attention of Melbourne soul diva, Nkechi Anele whose voice glides effortlessly behind Lanes in a most ‘un-Saskwatch’ way. There’s old and new in this. Original drummer David Williams (Augie March) jumps back on the drum stool to give the track its bedrock. Latest Autocrat (and current Australian flat picking champion) Jacob Mc Guffie (The Fearless Vampire Killers/Davidson Brothers) provides the shimmer and shine with his sweet and purposeful slide guitar, all ways leaving room for bassist (and Steve’s son) Kai Lane U’Ren, whose melodic playing surfaces beautifully in the middle eight. ‘Camber’ is the high tide mark, a sign of what’s to come from a band that Rolling Stone’s Darren Levin has described as proficient of writing “…tightly honed songs with their blinkers on”. Recorded by Steve Lane And David Carr at Troubled Waters and Rangemaster Studios. Mastered by Joseph Carra at Crystal mastering. www.stevelaneandtheautocrats.com https://www.facebook.com/stevelaneandtheautocrats
