Chewing The Fat With Alexander Gow

There’s something about winter that is bringing out the intimacy inside and, luckily, this seems to go for the music industry as well. This July will see veterans of the Australian stage Dan Sultan and Oh Mercy front man Alexander Gow tour the country with nothing but their wits, voices and chosen instruments. I had a chat with Alexander Gow about how this acoustic double feature came into being.

How did touring with Dan Sultan come about?
Dan and I are mates who both had a July free of any other commitments. We decided to do a tour. We’re going to sing some covers, drink a few beers and kick the footy. It should be good fun.

Your tour sees you in both urban and rural environments, is it refreshing playing
a country gig?

Yes. The coffee is a little hotter in the country, which suits me fine. The fresh air and steaks are great.

Has it been much of a learning experience touring as a solo performer, or is the
head-space the same when you enter a stage?

It’s going to be completely different. I’m going to have change my approach completely. It might be a disaster. But hopefully not.

As a Melburnian, is there a stage you’re most comfortable with, or a favourite venue to perform in?
I like playing in my living room best. Second to that, Rod Laver Arena.

What are your plans for the rest of the year?
Tour with Dan, Splendour in the Grass and then America for a short while. I’m very excited.

You can catch Alexander Gow and Dan Sultan playing at the National Theatre in St. Kilda on the July 8. Or make the trek to the Theatre Royal in Castlemaine on July 9th.
