ABOUT THIS ALBUM


Album Notes
Here are two versions of "Black Tuesday" written with Yawaru traditional owner Janet Cox. One version is stripped back to acoustic guitar and voice and the other has additional instrumentation - recorded at Manari Rd protest camp, Broome Western Australia. All funds from song downloads will go to helping the camp at the Save The Kimberley campaign. The simpler version of the song is Janet's preference whilst David preferred the version with the extra instruments - you can sample and choose your favorite, or download both.

David stayed at the camp for a while, helping Traditional Owners and community members protect their country from industrialization. From his perspective the song "Black Tuesday" is testament to the determination of the local community protecting their country from the illegal actions of a mining company. The lyrics for the song were adapted from a speech given in Broome courthouse by Yarawu Traditional Owner Janet Cox when she was arrested for protecting her country. David was also arrested at the protest camp after being locked on to a mining company truck for eleven hours, alongside many other concerned community members who adopted civil disobedience and non-violent direct action as a means of protecting country.

David Rastrick is an accomplished musician with a Diploma in Music (Songwriting), as well as over twenty (20) years performing and songwriting experience.
"Writing Black Tuesday happened easily." David said, "Janey's words were so powerful to begin with, and to transform them into song lyrics all I had to do was add a few rhymes and an inspiring chorus." David has played with hundreds of bands throughout WA and Australia, mainly on Trumpets and Vocals, but also on Guitar, Double-Bass and more. "The River Beats" performed "Black Tuesday" live at packed out concerts in Broome and then on the rest of their North West/WA tour.
