Melbourne outfit Michael Meeking & The Lost Souls return to The Standard and are excited to have released their new album Saturday Night Sunday Morning. The culmination of several years of creating the pop-jangled rock sounds the are now embedded on the album forever, Michael Meeking has released an album he is immensely proud of.
Much of Saturday Night Sunday Morning is rooted in the classic Melbourne country-rock sound of bands such as The Dingoes, Weddings Parties Anything and The Warner Brothers, though Tom Petty influenced ‘Looking For A Change’, Ryan Bingham inspired ‘Back To Life’, and ‘Me And Lucinda’ is a love song to Lucinda Williams.
Saturday Night Sunday Morning is the finest album in a music career that has taken Michael Meek- ing from Melbourne to London and back again. Af-ter six years in London, Michael returned home and re-formed The Lost Souls (Julien Chick on bass, Chris Gates on guitar, and Dave Kleynjans on drums, Cate De Carteret and Maryanne Smart).
“Not only a gifted songwriter and performer, the hard-working Michael is one of the genuinely decent people floating around in this thing called the music industry” - Neil Rogers, Triple R
Americana UK declared that Michael had “the rock swag- ger of The Faces, only more refined and performed better”, while UK’s Maverick Magazine said of Michael’s previous album, 2012’s Ride On: “It’s a bit like listening to your favourite bits of your entire record collection in just 40 minutes.”
