Funny Little World by Alyce Platt

Funny Little World is a compelling and intriguing evening of music by Alyce Platt and her all-star band, The Fish Shop Collective, interwoven with stories from the high life of being a TV celebrity in the madness of the 1980s and personal accounts of her life then and now.

Alyce tells the story via her own original songs and songs that have been part of her personal journey, an eclectic mix of classic pop/rock songs by artists such as Linda Ronstadt, Bobbie Gentry, Marianne Faithfull, The Velvet Underground, Leonard Cohen, The Motels, Mazzy Star, Portishead, and Jacques Brel.

“Alyce’s songs are special” – Steve Kilbey, The Church

Australian audiences first met Alyce Platt on the small screen when she launched her versatile career in the 80s and became a household name on the popular drama Sons and Daughters and went on to become one of Australia’s most high-profile television stars, co-hosting Sale of the Century.

Through her music and stories, we see Alyce in a different light – a peek at what went on behind the scenes in her television days, growing up in the suburbs and sharing her foibles and vulnerabilities in a way that’s relatable to all.

The Fish Shop Collective features some of Australia’s most respected musicians, including guitarist Pete Farnan (Boom Crash Opera), drummer Clare Moore (Dave Graney and The Coral Snakes) and bass player Stephen Hadley (Tex Perkins’ Dark Horses.

Retro sounds, haunting melodies and stories of love, loss, family, friends and strangers … it’s a Funny Little World.
