Someone at a lovely music shop (let's say something like Mega Music) brought something to my attention yesterday. They've known the Perth cover band scene for a long time & mentioned that Murphy's Lore, as far as he knows, is the only band that's had the same line-up for over 10 years.
Obviously the Murphy brothers have been playing together since they were kids & called their family band Murphy's Lore. I, (Shaun) have been blessed enough to have been with the guys since 1998. Jason Smith joined full time in 2002. I think that's right... Kieran? So the majority of the line-up has been unaltered for such a long time.
The other big bands in Perth may have been around just as long & some even longer (Sim Jim, Dr Bogus, Daren Reid et al), but their line-ups are far from the same.
So I thought that was significant & kind of cool. Thanks for your support Perth & thanks to my brothers in arms: Courtney Murphy, Chris Murphy, Kieran Murphy, Clayton Bolger & Jason Smith. We should totally start a band.
