Album Notes
It's the Apocalypse, baby is the second album by Eddie Cole. In the vein of Roberta Flacks 'First take' and Van Morrison's 'Astral weeks', 'It’s the apocalypse, baby' features jazz inflected rhythms, double bass, strings and gorgeous guitar playing. The 13 tracks range form spirituals to love songs to straight out folk rock.
Tracks such as Rusty shack have a distinct Australian flavour while 'Trouble of the world' is simply epic.
'Like fur Elise' is beautiful while 'Over and over' is mellow and reflective.
Eddie left school heavily infected with the music bug. He could play guitar and hold a tune. The young muso soon talked his way into his best friend’s band. They had lofty ambitions, played some gigs, but soon imploded.
He became a drifting hippy traveler. Dead-end jobs, busking, coffee shops. Eventually he got some money, recorded a good quality demo and sent it to England. Two major record companies contacted him wanting to hear more. But nothing happened.
Accompanied by his girl, Eddie hit the road in Australia. In the wilderness south of Perth, he witnessed the night sky on fire from the Southern Aurora and had intimations of the end of the world. Shortly after this experience he attended a Revival meeting from a street invitation and got the fire of the Holy Ghost.
Back home with a wife and baby, he lived in a shack with no toilet and decided to abandon his musical ambitions. With no formal qualifications and no career prospects other than music, Eddie worked in a hospital collecting rubbish and dirty linen. Time passed and he put together a couple of Gospel albums full of passionate intensity. A few hundred of each title sold through his Pentecostal Church. People loved this music.
Some time after, making a living inspiring others to a love of music and guitar, Eddie decided it was time to make an album aimed at the world beyond the Church. The project was called “I know what’s going on”. Some folks took notice. The “Mellow” EP followed, groovy and funky. The boy could play. More people were listening now. Airplay around the country on community stations spread the love.
Now 2008 sees the release of “It’s the apocalypse, baby” and a new chapter unfolding in the Eddie Cole story.
