Today, Peter Bibby ushers in Marge, his third studio album with the disruptive Dog Act is available digitally and on limited edition blue 12” vinyl now via Spinning Top Records | Caroline Australia. To mark the release, the West Coast musical cult figure shares the raw and languorous new single “Calcium” and gritty visual accompaniment.
A scientific study meets sunset soundtrack, album closer “Calcium” is a soothing “until next time” kiss goodbye. “I wrote this song on the back porch of a mate’s place in Mt Lawley. I remember having read a lot of mumbo jumbo about the dairy industry at the time. The lyrics felt silly but the tune felt so nice to sing. Engineer Mitch pulled a real shifty on me and put my guitar solo in reverse, resulting in me being a happy boy,” muses Bibby of the track.
Directed by Peter Bibby and Billy Bowen (Work for Arseholes), the video for Calcium is both an exercise of willpower and a denture pageant. “The video walks you through a typical night for me at Mojos Bar, saying no to all drugs and alcohol, sipping my favourite drink (milk), losing games of pool, slapping ciggies out peoples hands and just hunting for some vitamins,” says Bibby of the video.
