Dans baby in Nimbin
Throughout the 80s and 90s, The Cruel Sea was Australias coolest band. With Tex growling and prowling out front, it was Dan Rumour who created that distinctive Cruel Sea surf guitar sound.
The Cruel Sea had its origins as an instrumental band founded by guitarist Rumour and drummer Jim Elliott.
Dan was the major writing force of The Cruel Sea and was responsible for many of its hits.
That sound will continue with Dans new band, which includes the Durga Babies Michael Turner and Tim Tonkin.
The Dan Rumour Trio will perform at the Nimbin Hotel this Friday, May 16, from 7.30pm.
The Baby Durgas (a small version of the Durga Babies) will also play. Itll be a groovy, guitar-riddled night. And it costs nothing to get in.
