Featuring three stalwarts of the Adelaide folk scene, whose collective bands over time have ranged from Napper Tandy and Tintagel to The Dags, Kelly’s Revenge, Hobson’s Choice, Hopscotch and many more, the acoustic trio Flash Company came together in 1994. One of their highlights was the Adelaide support to Steeleye Span that year. They also appeared on Roots & Branches on August 11 ’94 for an exclusive performance. This is therefore a rare recording, as they did not release any official albums.
Rob Bartlett has been living back in the UK for some years now, and sadly Mike Whelan passed away in 2012.
