about

Jemma & The Clifton Hillbillies are pleased to release the debut single Fighting Mad which they will be playing for your listening enjoyment every Sunday in January at Yarra Hotel Abbottsford!

Fighting Mad is unashamedly a love song, but it's not a sugary confection about sunshine and lollipops. Mix equal parts confession, devotion, desire, jealousy and insecurity. Then stir in a little self destructive behaviour - you know, the kind that only love can provoke - and you've got it.

i'm, fighting mad
you're, you're bleeding blue
i can keep you up all night
chase you round until i'm right
cos i'm, mad for you
i'm mad for you

Although Jemma & The Clifton Hillbillies wear their hearts on their sleeve, they are more than the sum of their parts and a surprisingly ambitious lot. Not one of them actually resides in a trailer.

Jemma & The Clifton Hillbillies started life as Jemma & Her Wise, Young, Ambition Men;, a longwinded and slightly ridiculous name derived from Lefty Frizell's classic song Saginaw Michigan. They've played around Melbourne since 2012 in various guises and this year have renamed themselves and added a few new members to create The Clifton HIllbillies.

Featuring:
Jemma Rowlands - singerwoman & hands on hips holder
Sean McMahon - guitar & vocals
Ben Mastwyk - banjo & vocals
Cal Walker - bass & vocals
Josh Duiker - drums
Jason Bunn - fiddle

Their much anticipated first album has a lively jamboree feel and features lusty singing, rich instrumentation including twanging pedal steel, harmonies aplenty and guest appearances by Ben Franz on this debut single and Kate Alexander and Flora Smith on the album out in 2015.

lyrics

i'm, fighting mad
you're, you're bleeding blue
i can keep you up all night
chase you round until i'm right
cos i'm, mad for you
i'm mad for you

i, tried to cut you down
cos you, you cut me too
i could kick you out on the street
but i'd come begging at your feet
cos i'm, i'm mad for you
i'm mad for you

i'm fighting mad
you're, bleeding blue
i don't wanna have to lose
the best thing i ever had
i hope i don't leave you sad
cos i'm, i'm mad for you
i'm mad for you
