FOLLOWING the LP release of An Actor Repairs, plus a You Am I tour and the release of his first book, Detours, musician Tim Rogers will wrap it all up, drop it in this bundle and play a series of solo shows to cap the year off.

Rogers said the original plan for the year was a bit different than how it happened.

"The year was set aside to do a thesis on (Canadian maestros) Rush and their divisive keyboard era and learn how to tie my own shoelaces, but I got waylaid by a love of reading and the ever-shifting notion of cocktail hour and wound up writing a book,” he said.

"What a bloody nerve. What a cheek. What an editor.

"If this is to be my reaction to writing and recording an LP, I'm exceptionally proud and feeling it disappear into the ether, then God and Satan save us all.”

"An Actor Repairs was an LP made with love and not a lot else, despite a reliance on enthusiasm and the ability to stretch a budget under a charlatan's smoke cloud of enthusiasm.”

  • At the Byron Theatre, 69 Jonson St, Byron Bay, on Thursday, November 16, 7.30pm. For details, visit byroncentre.com.au.
