For the first time ever, Whirling Furphies entire back catalogue is now available online and we're over the moon to be associated with a group who really helped define the folk music landscape in Australia.
The legendary Whirling Furphies stormed onto the Australian folk scene in 1989 with their swirling mix of acoustic instruments.
Their hooky pop-style songs coupled with the band’s brilliant musicianship quickly established them at the forefront of the acoustic and folk scene in Australia.
Frank Jones’ lyrics reflect the urban experience of Melbourne in the early nineties, and along with Paul Kelly and Mick Thomas they helped establish a new and very contemporary Australian folk song style.
Their four releases included the two seminal albums, Lizard Tree and Head Over Heels along with the EPs Whirled Music and Don’t Stop.
Port Fairy Festival in 1998 was supposed to be the finale for the Furphies, but fifteen years later, in 2013, they surprised themselves by the pleasure they found in playing again.
