Nerds & Music consists of two cyborgs (Clark Gormley and Wayne Thompson) assembled by some deranged mechanic in his back shed in Newcastle. The Nerds, whose repertoire extends from sea shanties about the National Broadband Network to country rock anthems about lawnmowing, are renowned for their wordy witty songs. They will be featuring all the hits from their newest and soon to be critically acclaimed album You Can't Polish a Nerd.

Audiences have been rendered dumbstruck by their weirdness, witticisms, wordplay, and alliteration.

from the Editorial in Singabout 1(1) 1956 -

Duke's Place, named after our honoured early member Harold 'Duke' Tritton (1886-1965), is the place to go once a month for a great night of Australian songs in concert and session. Duke was a powerful singer who supplied BMC with many songs he had learnt in his younger days while working as a shearer and at other bush jobs. He was also a songwriter and poet giving us songs that have entered the tradition such as Sandy Hollow Line and Shearing in the Bar.
