A new super group has formed, so super it features over 20 vocalists, six drummers, six guitarists, three bassists and a didgeridoo, all to raise funds and awareness for prostate cancer charities.
The project, One in Seven features a rock and roll supergroup formed from members of legendary and up-and-coming bands including Baby Animals, The Screaming Jets, Massive, Tequila Mockingbyrd, The Naysayers and many more.
The group have taken on the 1965 The Byrds hit, Turn! Turn! Turn! - being the only recorded version featuring a didgeridoo, turning the classic track upside down and giving it a 21st century Melbourne rock’n’roll amp up!
The project was orchestrated by local musician, Home Grown band Tequila Mockingbyrd’s drummer Josie O’Toole following her father’s recent battle with the disease.
Talking of the project O’Toole said;
“It started off just as a thought, then I talked it over with a few close friends. Once I took it to Facebook I had more than 30 musicians, two photographers and a film crew involved.
The response has been incredible and it’s been wonderful to witness everyone coming together like this.
Many of those involved have been affected by prostate cancer, so it has a real personal meaning for a lot involved and I think it really shows”.
Watch the preview:
Prostate cancer affects one in seven Australian men during their lives. It is currently the second highest cause of male cancer death yet it is one of the most survivable cancers if detected early (92% chance of survival past 5 years). What many don't know is that a simple blood test at age 50 (age 40 if family history) could show warning signs years before any symptoms develop.
One in Seven are encouraging you to share the song and talk about the issue, awareness and early prevention could save a life, so tell a mate (or seven) and spread the word.
