Paul Kelly’s 1987 hit single, To Her Door, was the song that was given to Courtney Barnett’s English class when she was still in her high school on Sydney’s northern beaches. The class was assigned the song with the task of breaking down and analyzing the lyrics.
Courtney Barnett, the growing singer-songwriter and Triple J listener was already busy writing her first song as well as verses of poetry, but she had never carefully studied another songwriter.
Kelly had finally found an example of craft and a feeling of place she could quickly identify within her tale of a collapsed marriage and a desperate dash to reconciliation. To Kelly, To Her Door didn’t just click, it proposed paths that could be followed by her.
To Courtney Barnett, it was a mind-altering exercise. She recalls, “It was wonderful to be able to correlate with the Silver Top taxi line and those little Australianisms that made sense and hit home.”
Barnett’s songs also have a distinctive eye for detail like those of Kelly’s. But until now, these two Melbourne musicians and acquaintances have never before shared a stage, but that is soon going to change this month. Barnett and her band, coming for her second album, Tell Me How You Really Feel, where they will play main support for Kelly on his third Making Gravy national tour.

В Самаре предложили запретить продавать энергетики подросткам
В Самарской области планируется ужесточить правила продажи тех или иных товаров несовершеннолетним. Это касается энергетических напитков. Соответствующий законопроект находится на рассмотрении в думской губернии.
- До 1 июня 2018 года ярлыки означали, что энергия не рекомендована людям в возрасте до 18 лет, пожилым людям, страдающим гипертонией, людям с сердечными заболеваниями, повышенной раздражительностью, атеросклерозом, бессонницей, беременностью и лактацией. Но это было отменено Росстандартом », - говорится в пояснительной записке к документу. Однако авторы проекта считают, что превышение рекомендованной суточной нормы для электриков может негативно сказаться на здоровье молодого поколения. В связи с этим они требуют запрета на продажу лицам до 18 лет в школах, спортивных секциях, лагерях, больницах, спортивных центрах и спортивных сооружениях.
Принимая решение о запрете, парламентарии опираются на опыт других регионов. Аналогичные ограничения действуют в Приморье, Республике Саха, Кабардино-Балкарии, Алтае, Чечне, Адыгее, Бурятии и других частях страны.
