Phil Stack has hauled his trusty double bass into just about every RSL, pub, club, theatre and arena you can think of. Abby Dobson has sung all the way from tiny restaurants in Europe to the open air of The Domain in Sydney. They've both managed to notch songs of theirs into the Australian psyche – Phil with “In the Summertime” as part of Thirsty Merc, Abby with “Even When I'm Sleeping” as part of Leonardo's Bride. After all these years, however, both still have an insatiable love of performing – indeed, it's what has brought them together for this very chat in the first place. Ahead of Phil's album launch show in Sydney – where Abby will support – the two spoke openly about lugging PAs, surviving grunge, Paris syndrome and how hindsight in 2020 is still 20/20.
Catch Phil and Abby playing live at Mary's Underground in Sydney on Thursday October 15.
