Anti Fade Records presents the debut cassette from TB Ridge As The Director.
Anti Fade Records is very excited to announce the debut solo release from longstanding and influential Melbourne songwriter, Tom Ridgewell billed under the moniker, TB Ridge As The Director.
Over the last decade, Tom has been responsible for bringing us the assortments of local favourites Constant Mongrel, Woollen Kits and Calamari Girls. TB Ridge has now taken a step back from the live band, and into the director’s chair
Inspired by a realisation that although he can play other genres of music, nothing comes as satisfying or naturally as playing classic rock ’n’ roll music. It’s not done in your typical old rock ’n’ roll fashion though. The songs are built around repetition and layering, with the core of each essentially being a loop and features some outside-the-box instruments and effects. i.e. autotune and strings. And even though he sings about a humorous distaste for drum machines and synth’s, they’re featured all over the release!
