“Decayed” 2009 – 1984

Marty Willson-Piper and Tiare Helberg

A reverse F. Scott Fitzgerald type journey from fifty three year old man to a child in his twenties, Marty Willson-Piper’s “Decayed” is a journey through the immortality of music.

Performing songs from each of his solo albums and associated projects in reverse over three Thursdays on the 2nd/9th/16th in February at The Sandringham Hotel, Newtown, upstairs in the cozy small room – candles and incense optional.

This intimate setting presented by the In Deep Music Archive also showcases Tiare’s debut shows playing songs from her two evocative EP’s The Inconsolable Isolation Of Intimacy and Black Unicorn. Conjurers of darkness in Tiare’s band are Producer/Musican David Skeet, multi-instrumentalist Craig Wilson and MWP.

Three Thursdays, three completely different sets from three decades.
Melbourne city at The Toff On The Town Wednesday 7th March and Brisbane at Black Bear Lodge (the old Troubadour) in the Fortitude Valley on Wednesday 22nd February will be an abridged version of the Sydney sets.
