Rock song about the wreck of the Speke

Last updated on 30 September 2017

Here at PIDHS we do get some unusual emails, but the recent email from composer and performer Barry Berger particularly caught our eye. Barry has been fascinated by the wreck of the Speke near Kitty Miller Bay on Phillip Island since boyhood, and after doing some research has now written a rock song about the wreck. You can hear it by going to: https://soundcloud.com/gash-berger/the-ss-speke-master

Bary has done a really good job, and it's well worth a listen. Certainly a very different topic for a rock song! Barry was inspired to write the song after exploring our website. Thanks Barry!
