Recent Revival

Recently Peter Combe has started playing overage pub gigs around Australia aimed at young adults who grew up listening to his music.[1] A clip of the live performance his song Mr. Clickety Cane at the Corner Hotel in Melbourne is available on Combe's Myspace Page showing a crowd of young adults singing along to lyrics such as "Wash your face in orange Juice", and "Belly flop on a pizza? Ewww!". The live DVD/CD Live at Jive was recorded in 2008 at one of these shows.
