WHEN DOBE PICKS UP THE LAGERPHONE, THE MUSIC COMES ALIVE

THE BUSHWACKERS NEW SINGLE – THE LAGERPHONE

Written by Roger Corbett and co-producer Liam Kennedy-Clark and on the surface, tells the very practical story of how to build a lagerphone. But look deeper and it’s not hard to see that The Lagerphone is a heartfelt tribute to the contribution Dobe Newton OAM (The Bushwackers front man) has made to the music, the genre and the band throughout his prestigious career.

For those in the dark about a ‘lagerphone’, it is a percussive instrument used in bush bands initially around Australia, and then around the world. It is played by flogging it with another
piece of wood in time to the bush songs which are also unique to our heritage.
