Tim Gaze and Peter Howe – Narooma Saturday 4th February Due to unforeseen circumstance this show has been cancelled Tim Gaze and Peter Howe have created music for iconic surf movies since the early 70s. As they rehearse for a gig in an Australian coastal town they muse on the relationship between music and surfing. In 1971 they were among the musicians who recorded the soundtrack to Morning of the Earth, the first Australian film soundtrack to go gold. The film captured the spirit of Australia’s surfing community that had developed through the 1960s, with musicians from the first wave of Australian rock and blues bands. Peter Howe’s “I’m Alive” is the track most often associated with the movie. Here he tells the story of his experiences on the film. Tim Gaze had earlier emerged as a 16 year old blues rock prodigy compared as Australia’s Clapton. His long career has included playing with Tamam Shud, Ariel, Rose Tattoo, The Blues Doctors, and the Jimmy Barnes band. Tim Gaze and Peter Howe’s latest project together was Pictures of the Coast.
