Good day to you all and hello and I hope you are well. Check this:
Starting in Melbourne in late February 2011, I’ll be grooving around my home country playing big-arsed stupid songs with large groups of the finest classical musicians in the land. The Melbourne Symphony Orchestra, The WA Symphony Orchestra, The Adelaide Symphony Orchestra, The Queensland Pops Orchestra and the Sydney Symphony have all agreed to risk their reputations by playing my songs. Scary.
I’m currently in the process of writing some new stuff especially for this project, and there’ll be plenty of orchestrated versions of my old stuff too.
I am excited and – frankly – honoured to be performing with these folk and I do hope you can come and witness it. It will be unlike anything you’ve seen before. Unless you’ve seen my shows before and you’ve seen a performance by an orchestra before, in which case it’ll be quite like a combination of two things you’ve seen before.
I’m also excited because the radio station of my youth (and beyond), Triple J , will be supporting the tour. Which is very nice of them.
Tickets go on sale to the public on August 2nd at 9am!

In October 2008 Tim worked with Animator Martin White to create this video for “If You Open Your Mind Too Much Your Brain Will Fall Out (Take My Wife)” for the forthcoming series of ITV’s ‘Comedy Cuts’.
Director: Fergus March
Director of Photography: Tim Jordan
Producer: Rohan Acharya
Heroically, in the interests of art Tim sat naked* in a space craft and sang about proof, rationalism and his wife, giving rise to the alternate title for the piece: “I will give you my piano, one of my legs and [most of] my clothes”
The song was first recorded in 2006 for the album ‘So Rock’.
* Please note Tim was notactually naked in this video.
…he was wearing an underbust corset and the mystery is: What colour was it?…
