Greg Fleming's 'The Movie Version'
Greg Fleming says the fourth single from his forthcoming album Get Off at Lincoln is about - "the potentially horrifying prospect of sitting down to watch the movie of your life".
The moving song which Fleming says - "pretty much arrived full form" is one of the standout tracks on an album which - Springsteen-like - follows a series of characters who live out in West Auckland.
Fleming has been described as "one of the finest, most underrated songwriter's in the country" and ‘The Movie Version’ is one of his finest.
Greg's first show was opening up for Texan legend Townes Van Zandt since then he's built up a reputation as a razor sharp songwriter - adept in a wide range of styles and settings. The Working Poor are one of Australasia's finest, forward-thinking bands. Their album To Hell With These Streets made the top 10 best albums of 2016 at elsewhere.co.nz - it followed the highly acclaimed Stranger In My Own Hometown and 2014's Forget the Past – which enjoyed 4 star reviews both at home and internationally. 2017's Working Poor Country was considered one of the year's overlooked gems by the Sunday Star Times.
