Brisbane's eleventh favourite periodical prerogidal son Ben Salter is making one of his biannual visits to the smallest and best boozer in Brisbane, The Junk Bar, to ostensibly do a special acoustic preview of his new album "Back Yourself". However he'll probably just play the usual mix of songs from his first two albums, some Gin Club songs, and some cover versions of songs he heard in video game soundtracks.

Back Yourself is Ben's third full length album. Recorded over three months in the wilds of Tasmania's Huon Valley, Back Yourself was written almost entirely on the spot, in the studio. It has stadium rock bangers, positive self image anthems and semi-spoken word blathant garde 'experimental' pieces (album filler). It's Salter's most audacious folly yet and is sure to fail to win him the mainstream audience and acceptance he has so artfully evaded for the past twenty years. It will most likely be released in some sort of odd format (a book? a magazine? a cassette?) alongside a fairly conventional one (a vinyl? a CD?) in an effort to garnish more inneress. A very special support will be announced very soon. The price of tickets has been jacked up since last time, by $5, to reflect Ben's increasingly ravenous appetite for food. He's going to play for a good hour and half though. See you there, South-East Queensland!
