Tim Rogers, Davey Lane and Ashley Naylor have put together an all-star band to celebrate the 50th anniversary of The Who’s break through album of 1969, “Tommy”, which they will perform in June as “Captain Walker’s Unborn Children”.

The Pete Townsend-penned masterpiece “ropera” (sic) about the deaf, dumb and blind kid, has been represented in theatre, film and of course, live performance by “The ‘Orrible ‘Oo”, but never in its full track listing sequence. That’s about to change, when Captain Walker’s Unborn Children bring “Tommy” to life St Kilda’s MEMO Music Hall on Friday, June 21 and The Yarraville Club on Saturday, June 22.

Says Rogers, ‘Captain Walker’s Unborn Children want to pull the pinball and light up the whole bloody thing.

‘No theatrics, no script, just Tommy in its entirety.’

The foolhardy minstrels sparkin’ up the stage include: Davey Lane, Ashley Naylor, Brett Wolfenden, Talei Wolfgramm, Tim Rogers, Liam McGorry.
After seeing Tommy done in various states of theatre and film, Captain Walker’s brood wanted torevisit the power and atmosphere of the original LP – Meaty, Beaty, Big and Bouncy!
