Timi Temple – Scott Mercer
Live at Greaser, Fortitude Valley, 21 November 2019
Timi Timple is a committed DIY musician who runs his own ship and puts out a consistent string of releases from his home base in Sydney. Since 2017 he has released the “PHUZZ BOY EP” and a dozen singles, the latest of which, “Fa-Fa-Fading” came out in April.
While Timi writes, records and plays just about everything himself, he was backed on this tour by drummer Cat Hunter. A few backing tracks may also fill out the sound, but as you’ll soon hear Timi’s exuberant guitar playing is the real live deal, as is his charismatic ability to make friends with a rowdy new audience.
This set is notable in that it was the first Live Delay recorded at Fortitude Valley’s Greaser bar, which before the COVID-19 lockdown was a popular dive-style watering hole beneath the Elephant Hotel popular with local punters due to its regular live gigs and free entry.
