from the LANEWAY BARS album.

DD37 – COL GENTLES – THE LAST OF THE KNUCKLEMEN

 

COL GENTLES, prolific Singer /Songwriter from the Blue Mountains , enjoyed charting success this year with his debut single, ‘I SAID NOTHIN’, rising to a respectful #19 on the Australian Top 40 Country Tracks Airplay Chart in September, whilst his 2nd release, ‘I’VE BEEN THERE WITH SLIM’, claimed #10.

COL GENTLES’ latest single, ‘THE LAST OF THE KNUCKLEMEN,’ tells the story of the last days of Jimmy Sharman’s boxing tent and it’s fighters. It was written by Col after listening to a story on late night AM radio coming home from a gig. It brought back memories of going to Sharman’s tents with his Dad and brother and watching the spruiker out the front banging the drum and yelling out "a round or two for a pound or two".

The song has been recorded by The Bushwackers, The Willies and Tall Timbre and is a favourite at live gigs.
