To celebrate the 40 Years of Motion tour, Models have opened the vault!
From recording sessions in 1993 (or 1994), the line-up of Sean Kelly, Andrew Duffield, James Freud & Barton Price reconvened in Studio Two at Metropolis in South Melbourne to record some ideas.
Dead Elvis is the result. This missing recording of a song by Sean, uncovered after thirty years, has Sean playing with the concepts presented by Greil Marcus in his 1991 book, Dead Elvis, in which sightings of Elvis Presley continued long after his death in 1977.
In the song, Sean imagines confronting the King, creating a metaphor on the (supposed) death of Rock ‘n Roll in the 1990s.
