Sydney’s favourite subversive bluegrass trio The Lurkers have very busy boys and girls of late. Not only have they managed to pop out a brand new mini-Lurker but they’ve also recorded a new album, confirmed themselves for a bunch of shows and festivals around the country and been arrested for protesting against the coal industry.

According to The Lurkers’ blog Lurkerlust, Weary Hobo (the band’s bass player), was involved in a non-violent direct action protest last year that saw him chaining himself to a coal train line, an action that subsequently had him arrested and charged (for which it seems he has since been acquitted). The whole experience spawned the wonderful new single from The Lurkers “Who’s Got a Padlock and Chain?”, the first off their forthcoming album.

“Who’s Got a Padlock and Chain?” can be downloaded from The Lurkers’ Unearthed page and if you leave a review they’re even offering to send you the full album absolutely free. Sounds pretty good eh? Have a listen to “Who’s Got a Padlock and Chain?” below and then head over to Unearthed and tell the band what you think. Can’t wait for the album guys!
