md horne's last call - The I-94 Bar

Charting a different folk-punk path

skin and bonesSkin and Bones – MD Horne’s Last Call (self released)

Last year’s “Red Dirt Bituman” album was a departure for 300 st clare and Johnny Casino bassist Mark Horne, and his 2021 incarnation MD Horne’s Last Callsounds like another. While “Bituman” headed for the wide open spaces of the Australian bush, framing Horne’s sparse songs against a stark, dry soundscape, “Skin and Bones” hops into a boat and sets sail on folk-punk seas.

“Skin and Bones” is the first track to be released (digitally, natch) from the forthcoming Last Call album, "High Tides, More Crimes", on OuttaSpace Records in Australia and both Folc Recordsand La Villa Nova in Spain.

Turning lemons into lemonade

Thwarted by COVID in his attempt to launch his new song “Skin and Bones” live, locked-down MD Horne in Sydney gathered a few friends to stage an online musical party to mark the tune's released, on the day of his birthday.

I-94 Bar patrons will recognise some familiar faces, among them Johnny Casino (dialing in from Spain), Kylie and Llouis of Thee Cha Cha Chas, Al Creed (Aberration, ex-New Christs, Hell Crab City), Craig Jackson (ex-Brother Brick) and Carrie Phillis (ex-Booby Traps.) Cop the digital single here.
