    After a couple of false starts and a difficult birth the long awaited Ian Bland CD “Everything and Nothing” and his first book of poetry “Bland On Bland” have sprung forth fully formed and lustily bawling.

    “Everything and Nothing” is a cinematic special starring a motley company of individuals. The songs are each a musical story, whether semi-autobiographical gems, gleaned conversations or plucked from current events, each deliver a condensed and precise serving of observed truth.

    The Lamington String band led by Ian Bland, featuring Ed Bates, Greg Hunt, Peter Anderson, Nathan Farrelly, Mark Stanley and joined by a host of other notable musicians, as usual add their own measure of polish to this the third Ian Bland solo album.

lyrics

Everything And Nothing

Sure I remember you – you used to work at the mill down by the station
Yeah, I heard they closed it down – how’d they put it – rationalisation

Good to see you’ve kept your smile
A long face never was your style
Everything and nothing’s changed around here


I just dropped by for old time’s sake – share a couple of beers
Me? I left here a long time ago – I’ve been gone for years

There’s a lot of memories in this place for me
Let’s just call it curiosity
Everything and nothing’s changed around here

It’s quieter than I remember – Used to go mad on a Saturday night
These are uncertain times - Money’s a little tight

I see they knocked the foundry down – guess nothing’s meant to last
There’s a car lot where the freight yard stood – I nearly drove straight past

Kids still hang out in the car park lane
The fashions different but the boredom’s the same
Everything and nothing’s changed around here

I should probably make a make a move – I’ve got a long way to go
Yeah, it’s good to see you too – tell everyone I said hello

Spare change? – Here, I’ll get you something to eat
You can buy me a drink when you’re back on your feet
Everything and nothing’s changed around here
