about

Fat Rain Music Melbourne, Australia

"Fat Rain" is the rain that comes on a hot sultry afternoon, those large splotches that fall singularly from the sky, splattering in the gravel and exploding on windscreens...

Founded by Adam Simmons, Fat Rain's focus is on improvised and jazz music but basically dedicated to providing engaging music, believing good art is not simply entertaining but should leave an impression!

Track Name: Then and Now
a call for change
had raised a flag
and made a voice as one

the history
of you and me
but how far have we come?
but how far have we come?

hear the cries
above the lies
of justice being done.

democracy for one and all,
yet how far have we come?
how far have we come?
how far have we come?

as as as far as our imaginings allow...

between the days...
between the days...
between the days of then and now
(repeat)

let's barricade
this here stockade
before the morning sun
come on people
come circle round
to see what we've become
to see what we've become

the road
from Eureka show
a battle fought and won

and we keep
the fires burning
till we see the job is done
till the job is done
but how far have we come?

as far as our imaginings allow...

between the days...
between the days...
between the days of then and now
(repeat)

as a mighty wave
with might and power
we have come to the present hour
we've got to take the chance
and make a stance
the time to act is now!

between the days...
between the days...
between the days of then and now

there's a call for change
let's raise a flag
and make a voice as one
make history
with you and me
let's see what can be done
see what can be done
let's see what can be done

and go where our imaginings allow...

between the days
between the days
between the days of then and now
(repeat)
(repeat)

outro
between the days
between the days of then and now
(repeat)
