Who: Snape Bros
Where: Beresfield Bowling Club
When: Sunday October 8, 2000

THE Hunter's most harmonious siblings THE SNAPE BROTHERS are working on a debut album, a mix of original country, country rock and ballads.

Playing this Sunday night for the Golden Anniversary of Beresfield Bowling Club, the Snape Bros have been recording on and off for the past month with BILL AITKEN at AKACHANT STUDIOS in Kurri Kurri.

MICK SNAPE said the album would contain 13 tracks, and was expected to be released in December.

'It's a pretty diverse sort of an album,' he said.

The trio is best known around the Hunter for their covers and famous three-part harmonies, especially on tunes by THE EAGLES and JACKSON BROWNE. Snape said he and his brothers RUSSELL and CHRIS had decided to record an album for posterity, and may even enter a song or two in time for Tamworth in January.

'We've been overworked and a little bit slack, you could say,' Mick said. 'We thought we'd better go and do something before we got too old.'

All tracks had been recorded, awaiting only vocals, harmonies and a little lead guitar, including a special solo piece from a prominent, unnamed guitar picker. TE
