The Rescue Ships played Rockhampton once.
It was in 2009 and back then they were (and still are) Elana Stone and Brian Campeau and they were touring with Passenger aka Mike Rosenberg.
The gig was poorly publicised and they ended up scrapping the door price and just playing in the beer garden – their own originals and some tremendous covers.
Everyone had a great time and I ended up driving my (plastered) best friend home, via the supermarket where she berated a shop attendant for not selling “you know… chicken, that’s like, chopped up and already roasted?”
Anyway, they’ve pooled their considerable talents and are playing as a duo. I saw them support Scott Spark at The Globe Theatre a few months back and they were still incredible.
If you get a chance to see them live, go and do it. They’re ridiculously talented and do great banter.
