Who ARE these guys?

...A rhetorical question, I know. They are the John Butler Trio. According to Wikipedia "an eclectic roots/jam band from Australia". The song is 'Betterman' and I think it features Michael Barker on Drums & Shannon Birchall on Bass.

What I DO know is that Shannon's pitch & groove are great, John is a crazy 12 string-bending acoustic/wah-wah/delay monster and Michael does the fastest one handed drum rolls I've ever seen. More than that their playing is amazingly tasty. And if you like what you hear you can

Don't you just love the 'net?


  1. Great melodic bass solo!! Really good sound too! Wicked musicians - like it!

  2. OH. MY. GOSH. That was amazing!!!! Michael Barker is absolutely phenomenal!
