Flying South
 
When we were asked to record a song for Tony's tribute record we narrowed it down pretty quickly to two songs. Devonshire and Crown and Flying South. I assumed after numerous Australian tours these were definitely some reference to our rugged land. However a quick search of Google Maps reveals that Devonshire and Crown not only intersect in Sydney but also in about 20 other places on earth that NUFAN or Tony as troubadour may well have played. Upon consulting a compass it also appears Flying South could be about anywhere from Mexico to New Zealand. At the very least he pretended to like it here, and that's enough for us.  Also I couldn't sing the other one to save my life.
 
The last time our paths crossed was a NUFAN/Frenzal show in the lazily named 'Snowy Mountains' region of south eastern Australia. It was a great, fun show and afterwards we hung out til the wee hours avoiding the 'punishers' and putting off returning to the dorm style beds that an earlier cursory examination had been found to contain the blood and hairs of strangers. His quick wit and deep convictions always put him firmly in the category of fellow traveller, and for this we say 'thanks for the hang Tony.' One of the good ones.
