"Gone Away" / "Kit's Choice"
Brother Mick Turner and Brother Jim White have walked from the Timar Sea to the Indian Ocean drudging their instruments through the bush. These two Melbourne, Australia natives have made a name for themselves as 2/3 of the Dirty Three and by our estimates it won't be long til they're known widely as the brothers Tren. This debut single places the familiar guitar and worn harmonica of Turner with the taught and rebounding drums of White. The sounds within were hinted at on Turner's solo album, though at 33 rpm these instrumental ball breakers are given time to flesh out and expand over the Kata Tjuta. At a sum of fourteen minutes a means is provided for the Tren Brothers to stand apart from the D3 apparatus long enough to warrant notice as individual and flourishing musicians.
