The following year, 2006 Mia toured the USA and Canada, joined Frank Zappa’s band The Mothers of Invention
I caught an interview with her on The Music Show on Saturday 25-8-7
There are two live songs in the podcast –
River’s Wide and With the Blue Sky
but be warned, there is also some Paul Kelly…
In her praise, I give you my old article,
Chicks with Guitars II- Mia Dyson
Just caught Rockwiz –
with James Reyne
Whoa! Go see the photos!
Parishioners know of my love of Chicks with Guitars™
but she was magnificent!!!
A Jim Dyson Strat,
strings of rope & shit™ ’round her neck
like she was Mick Tyler or someone,
and a voice like Janis,
and the ‘tude of Keef!
At the end, for the customary duet,
she & James rocked Joni’s Woodstock!
He sang the high parts
she scowled & growled & made it rock,
they traded solos,
and it was great –
I beheld this –
and saw that it was Good!
Video interviews here,
mp3s here and
Q&A on her (
latest – oops, not any more!) album Parking Lots here.
