Oh and go to this link to hear previews of the album.
I recently played an Environmental song I wrote outside Greg Hunt's office.
There is a rumour going around that, in spite of the Adani coal mine being approved, he is the minister for the environment.
Of course he feels obligated to tow the Liberal Party Line and he's a sensitive person.
