Important, moving and charming - Roach knows how to tell a story. Dec 23, Bronwyn Mcloughlin rated it it was amazing. So powerful and eloquent and yet so simply told. I kept crying - with shame, with sadness, because we don't understand what other people suffer through our actions, through our government's actions, through our own inaction. I was horrified to realise that children were still being removed from their aboriginal parents when I was alive.
I always thought it was something that happened in the unenlightened times before I was born. It could be argued that it was undertaken in the mistaken belie So powerful and eloquent and yet so simply told. It could be argued that it was undertaken in the mistaken belief that it was in their best interests, gave them a better chance at a happy childhood, a prosperous and useful life.
But I think there was certainly an element of, remove the children from the land and the heritage, and white society can assume control and exploit the wealth and control the traditional custodians far more easily.
Archie struck it lucky with his third lot of foster parents, but the disruption and abuse of his very early years away from his real parents had a lingering impact on his life. The need to support family, to overlook dysfunction and welcome family, support family. Roach says that there's an addictive gene there, but I think it's an outcome of a life of dislocations, where no matter how you try, things slap you in the face and beat you down. Feeling good on a charge or a spliff or putting money through the pokies is some kind of continuity, guaranteed for short term relief of the terrors and disappointments lurking on the edges of your life.
Insightful story and without vitriol. May 13, Alison rated it really liked it Shelves: australia , non-fiction , biography. I vaguely thought about picking this up when it came out - I first saw Roach perform in and most recently in , so I am a long-time fan - but another musician bio didn't motivate me. It was only when I saw reviews from friends that raved about it that I started reading. And silly me - I should have remembered that Roach is a storyteller of the first order, and this book grabs you from the first page and won't let you go.
Roach's story is, of course, compelling, and he brings a depth of re I vaguely thought about picking this up when it came out - I first saw Roach perform in and most recently in , so I am a long-time fan - but another musician bio didn't motivate me. Roach's story is, of course, compelling, and he brings a depth of reflection to his experiences that makes for immersive reading and further reflection.
He manages to avoid simplifications, instead showing the good and the bad in situations and experiences, community and addiction, love and suffering. My first experience in with Roach and Hunter was at a music festival, where the buzz around Roach was huge. I rocked up early to see Archie, but it was Ruby, whom I had never heard of, who blew me away. Roach's love for Hunter comes through strongly, but sometimes she is so far on a pedestal I wanted to go back and listen to her own songs.
Apr 16, Vannessa rated it it was amazing Shelves: My five star read of the year. I couldn't put this book down. One of its most interesting aspects for me is the history of Koori activism in Melbourne discussed in this book, public activism as well as all the community work and self organising by Melbourne's Koori community and the role of community radio like 3CR. I also learnt a lot about the history of Aboriginal communities in Victoria and South Australia. The file notes from his file as a ward of the state and old family photographs that A My five star read of the year.
The file notes from his file as a ward of the state and old family photographs that Archie has included in the book are also really astounding. The book made me think a lot about trauma, resilience and survival. He's done a tremendous job and will leave behind an important legacy to young indigenous people through his music and writing. One of the best memoir audiobooks I've ever listened to. I pretty much couldn't stop listening once I started. Completely enthralling.
I'm not into country music but was entranced with each song that Archie introduced each chapter. He knows how to tell his story and how to write a song. His and Ruby's story are important contributions to understanding First Nations peoples lives. Highly recommended. Jan 19, David Mcnair rated it it was amazing. I loved reading this book and would recommend it for everyone to read, especially anyone who considers themselves to be Australian.
I believe we will one humanity again, that we will find release, healing and true freedom. Through songs, I have been able to deal with the pain and trauma in a more positive way. Every time I sing it, I let a little of the hurt and trauma go. I tell them that one day I will be singing it and it will all go.
A proud First Nations Person who has taken a life time to discover who he truly is. Archie has said that you know me best through my music. Customers who viewed this item also viewed.
