NED COLLETTE


Ned Collette: The Country with a Smile

We met Ned at Darren Hanlon’s place. It was a windy afternoon and Darren was having one of his ‘Under The Clothesline’ backyard gigs. Ned was younger than I expected, and I while I controlled my inner dorky starstruck admiration, we roamed aimlessly around the block looking for a place to film.

We settled on what I thought must have been the most boring option. A house. A boring typically Sydney terrace house. Great. Jonathan began shooting and I cursed my lack of planning and the bland suburban streets of Petersham where I grew up and where we now stood.


Ned Collette: Laughter Across The Street

But The Country With A Smile was a one take wonder. Shoot The Player is all about spontaneity and improvisation – and when i saw his band creep in on cue, the kids begin to dance, and Ned’s lyrics soar as the sun set – it was magic. Unique. A favourite for us.

    Wonderful ! I didn’t know the new song, it’s outstanding… and it’s a joy to ear this live version of “Laughter…”

    Actually, I was surfing on “thetakeawayshows.com”, searchin’ for Ned Colette, but nothing… so I went to his MySpace, and I found exactly what I was searchin’ for !
    I’m so lucky !
    I wonder why the two sites aren’t better connected.

    Anyway, thank you !
