Lobsterman is one of the great cult artists of our time. Labouring away in obscurity in Sydney (northern beaches – inner west – northern beaches) since the mid-1980s, Chris Lobb’s finely crafted vignettes reflect upon life’s seeming insignificant elements, to sometimes humorous, sometimes poignant effect. He commands a devoted following in Sydney and, curiously, Tasmania. China Pig Records is collating some of the most intriguing tracks from 100+ releases for the Lobsterman Archives series. The show is to launch Volume 3, which brings us up to the year 2000, give or take.
ThIS showcase for Vivid Sydney on Friday 7 June brings musicians together from around the country to reform Lobster’s 1990s bands Unseen and the original Lobsterman band in a one-off celebration not to be missed. Recommended for fans of Captain Beefheart, The Fall and Laughing Clowns. Join us to celebrate a living legend!
