Being a fairly cool and wet Sunday afternoon I decided it was time to find another local video online. My search allowed me to stumble across some footage of a local band called Marshall & the Fro that really is starting to develop a strong reputation Australia wide.
Comprised of Marshall O’Kell on Guitar, Slide guitar, & Vocals, Nick Ohlson on Bass and Jacob Mann on Drums, Marshall and the Fro have played down the house at the East Coast blues and roots Festival these past two years and look to have a pretty busy itinerary for the rest of this year.

It has been a while since I have posted a local video and this afternoon I have been browsing around looking for something appropriate. My search led me to a great video that has been put together by Bangalow Public School as part of their entry into Australia’s healthiest school competition.
Although Bangalow Public School didn’t win the competition I thought this was still a worthy entry.

For this week’s Far North Coast video feature I decided to have a bit of scout around YouTube for some Lismore related content. My search led me to what is a somewhat unique musical interpretation of Lismore by missredelle. The Lismore song is by no means complimentary and I have transcribed the words below.
The Lismore Song Lyrics
Lismore, Lismore you’re too far from Byron to be a yuppie town.
Lismore, Lismore you’re too far from Nimbin to be a hippie town.
You’re stuck in the middle, not sure what you should be. You’re stuck with the dregs of society. Poor Lismore if it wasn’t for the UNE you’d be a ghost town, you’d be a ghost town.
Lismore, Lismore you’re too far from Casino to be a beef town.
Lismore, Lismore you’re too far from Alstonville to be a Christian town.
You’re stuck in the middle, not sure what you should be. You’re stuck with the dregs of society. Poor Lismore if it wasn’t for the UNE, you’d be a ghost town, you’d be a ghost town.
We would love to hear what you think in the comments below.

There is absolutely no doubt that in recent times Byron Bay has been dramatically changing from an idyllic and somewhat hidden gem on the New South Wales north coast to a world wide destination for visitors and those escaping the hustle and bustle of the city. Read more
