Last year former frontmand for the Hardheads and Watershed, Michael Cullen performed his first ever “solo” concert, backed by his new band the Soul Searchers. Check out the best bits of the gig in the video below (or by clicking here).

Directed by award winning Australian film maker Graham Gall, the video captures Michael and his stellar band the Soul Searchers in glorious form on stage at the Lazybones Lounge in Sydney. It features five amazing songs – Black Dog, Nothing Special, Black Coffee and Cigarettes, Believer and I Walk Alone, all from the critically acclaimedTrue Believer album and all cooking.

On a hot and sweaty night in Marrickville, Michael and The Soul Searchers led by Tim Powles of The Church with Andy Sharpe (Iota) on bass, Craig Wilson (astreetlightsong) on keyboards and James Harland-Wright (Stretch Princess) on guitar demonstrate their prowess reinterpreting the studio recordings in a way which deepens and strengthens their baritone malevolance as well as turning up the temperature to stinking.

Look out for the Black Dog Live EP coming soon!
