Sway Resistor Melbourne, Australia

Sway Resistor are a collaboration of musicians based out of Melbourne, Australia.

The tunes they create form deep in the belly of the multi-hatted Mark Landmann, and are teased into existence with the help of drummer Cam Jones.

Music sketches gradually turn into songs as they then carefully layer on amazing performances by some of the finest low profile musos south of the Tropic of Capricorn.

Track Name: Powder Morning
I'm outnumbered by the young guns
At night the 45 proof beckons me.

Compromise don't disguise your jealousy
That I feel free.

Track Name: Side of the Road
Watch for crocs, and don't get lost... and leave those Koori girls alone...

Your camelback is cracked... wasn't this the spot that swallowed Burke & Wills?

~ ~ ~
Track Name: Flow to Flight
They'd only met twice when attraction hooked deep
As possibilities expand, could no longer sleep

All glasses raised to toast what's plain
Find the best of you right here

~ ~ ~
Track Name: A Hundred-Thousand Steps
A hundred-thousand steps might see her across the line
But it's a luxury to worry about the time
When in the wars the walkers die

When the help arrives you'll pay to remember
You're a stroller and a temporary saint
With the best supplies you'd call it an adventure
But walkin' 60 miles a party it ain't

Track Name: Full Zeppelin
But Bono knows it all
He knows nearly everything!

If what I knew took a trebling
What I don't know would still fill a Zeppelin

~ ~ ~
Track Name: Some Damn Ideology
Don't you dare to read a book
You'll die for loving music
They'll kill you if you choose it

But folks back home are pissed
At small things missed

And all the while they scarcely smile at peace
At the absence of the wicked fear
Of enemies you fear are near
As bird songs whistle in your ears
You ingrates

~ ~ ~
Track Name: Solace
Sugarglide the Great Divide
From America to southern seas...

Come to Melbourne, Room 201
Come be someone, the blood of a Scotsman

I'll find solace
In the music that's upon us
Washing over me from afar
Washing you away,
Far away so I am safe
From this spell, now the spell is this guitar...
