PETER LILLIE was a hugely influential Australian songwriter. He died only a few months ago.
Peter sang about the world in which he lived like no Australian ever before. His turn of phrase stood alone.
He paved the way for Skyhooks to sing about the world in which they lived. Bands like Models and Weddings Parties Anything sprouted from the seeds of Peter’s songs. His music is still felt in bands like the Wagons although they have absolutely no idea who he was.
Peter was one of those troubled geniuses. Jeez, he was difficult. And that was why he never became a household name. But man, he wrote some killer songs.
The Birth of the Ute
There Ain’t No 7-11’s in Heaven
Hangin’ ‘Round The House
And so many more…
On the night we will be raising some money for Peter’s daughter Verity.
