After 6 years, THE GOOD SHIP are hanging up their collective caps, fascinators, assorted headpieces, costumes and finery and are calling it a ‘day’.
The salty septet have made an amicable decision to wind up the project and proudly leave behind a rich musical history including 3 albums, 10 singles, 14 members at various times (and more than that many guests) and a whopping 150+ shows. Starting life as a fun side-project, The Good Ship sailed forth to major venues all over the country, international touring, festivals and theatre shows. They even spawned their own genre, PoCoFoCa – porno country folk cabaret – and forged a reputation for delivering fearsome, wildly hedonistic and frequently chaotic live shows.
2015 marks the final chapter in the story of The Good Ship with the announcement of two farewell shows, dubbed La Petite Mort (it’s French for ‘the little death’ but also has another meaning, in true Good Ship fashion). The first ‘petite mort’ takes place in their adopted second home of Melbourne with very special guests THE BON SCOTTS – a favourite band and great friends of The Good Ship who have shared many stages together over the last five years. Joining the Brisbane ‘petite mort’ will be NICK WATSON & THE BAWDY DICKS.
Don’t miss The Good Ship as they take their final bow at The Zoo on Saturday 23 May.
