1. This is a song about a bloke called Derek, written for everyone who has ever lived in a sharehouse. And for all those who wish they had.

    'Derek' is the first official single release from Fergus Maximus and is the lead single from his forthcoming EP/LP (due in March 2015).

    It was recorded live at The Austral Hotel in Adelaide, South Australia on Thursday, 13 November 2014 by Noni Espinosa. Noni did the live mix and recorded it straight to disk and then tweaked the levels a bit and, well, that's pretty much all that happened. It was mastered by Peter Maher in London (because The Internet). Daniel Ralph and his sister Deborah ran cameras that night and then Daniel used magic and electrons to stitch together the video you see before you.

    The gig was one of the regular weekly showcases of original music put on by SCALA (the Songwriters, Composers & Lyricists Association). They've been putting on such evenings for over 25 years. Go SCALA, you rock! https://www.facebook.com/scalasongwriters

    Ferg says that all the above-mentioned people are awesome and great to work with and you should definitely check them out. We had assumed he includes himself in that statement but when we asked him to clarify, he responded with "No Comment" so you will have to make up your own minds.

    The amiable Daniel Ralph can be found at http://www.PressStopProductions.com or via his FB page at https://www.facebook.com/PressStopProductions

    The cheerful Noni Espinosa can be found doing sound at SCALA gigs at The Austral or with his riotously fun band Funk Latin Union https://www.facebook.com/funklatinunion

Fergus Maximus is that guy with his headphones on long after the playlist has finished, completely oblivious because there's always music in his head anyway. Ferg's unapologetic pop songs encompass all the important things: love, loss, mistakes, surprises, people's astonishing capacity to miscommunicate and the mystery surrounding that curious old woman down the street. And eggplants of course.
