If It’s Catchy, It Means You Stole It is the title of a feature documentary on Sydney musician/independent record label boss Nic Dalton that is currently being put together by Jarrad Kennedy (director/producer) and Robert McCafferty (producer) for a 2013 release.
Nic Dalton has played in over 65 bands, most notably The Lemonheads in the early 1990’s. Dalton also co-founded independent record label Half A Cow with Miles Ferguson in 1990, which has gone on to release over 150 titles in it’s 22 year history. Interviews with key figures in the Dalton/Half A Cow story will be interwoven with animation, rare unseen footage and performances.
To raise funds for the film a gig is happening in Sydney at The Lansdowne Hotel on Friday 21st December featuring the original lineup of Swirl, Whopping Big Naughty, Tom Morgan (solo) Peter Fenton with Jason Walker and David Lane as well as Smudge’s Adam Yee spinning tunes.
If you are in Melbourne you’ll also be able to get along to a fundraiser gig at The Tote on January 25th featuring Swirl, Khancoban and many others to be announced.
