Over the past few decades Brisbane has, as the saying goes, punched above its weight when it comes to contributions to Australian musical culture. The Go-Betweens now have their own bridge; Powderfinger had the charts almost to themselves for a while there, and Regurgitator redefined rock and had fun doing it. There’s now a small but steady country music scene which includes Brad Butcher – and the quintet The Demon Drink, who have a debut album, Highway Robbery, due for release on 14 July. From it they’ve released a single, ‘Saturn’s Rings’. Vocalist and lyricist Kieran Waters says the song is ‘really a variation on the idea that time heals all wounds. Sometimes it doesn’t … sometimes time runs out.’
