Peter Bibby Releases Album Documentary CHASING PALM SPRINGS
Australia's most cunning wordsmith, Peter Bibby, has released a 30-minute documentary, which follows the tumultuous cross-country journey that preceded the release of his new album Grand Champion.
Directed, filmed and edited by Dan Nicholls, the documentary, titled Chasing Palm Springs, tales a tour gone awry, a cursed van, two lovers and the continent that separates them. Watch the full documentary below.
A bastard of an album that is lucky to see the light of day, Grand Champion was recorded largely in Perth. "It was interrupted by a gruelling return trip across the Nullarbor from Perth-Melbourne in a car that would have been better as a storage container, taking two months rather than the expected two weeks. This was only one of many setbacks with the completion of this record however we got there in the end," muses Bibby.
