Alice put together a bunch of her best-loved tunes to celebrate The Lifted Brow’s Music Issue.
We’re getting very excited about the Melbourne launch of Issue 6, it’s going to be a bonza night.
Friends, thank you so very much! We are absolutely delighted, and so very grateful to the people who supported the campaign, and to those who spread the word.
With this boost, we’re going to be able to pay for printing and overheads and not end up dying alone in a skip in an alley off Flinders Lane, which was the fate we were looking at three weeks ago.
We can’t wait to get this bird a’flyin.
If you didn’t get to pre-order issue 6, or pick up some back issues, you can do those things from here.
Again, so many thanks.– Alice Gage
As I Was Walking Through The Bush by Nick Coyle
Read the poem here.
As I was walking through the bush,
Big sun rolling gold in the gums, I
Met a kangaroo, a big one too
Propped up on shaky arms.
‘Wait, mate,’ he whispered,
Voice flanked by white foam, red
‘Hark you to me, I’ve a secret for thee
Before I’m called home, dead.’
We need your help. Pre-order Issue 6 for $15.
Buy some back issues.
We would really, really appreciate it.

The story of Bob Hemple and his Ned Kelly Disneyland on the Hume.
This story initially appeared in issue 3 – The Fade.
Remember this man?
It’s Bob Hemple, proprietor and self-titled ‘Head Dreamer’ of Ned Kelly’s Last Stand, a gothic Australian Disneyland on the dusty Hume Highway. Eddie Sharp covered the story for Ampersand issue 3, The Fade (buy it here for $10).
Tune in to Radio National at 3pm today to hear it, presented by Long Short Story.
