Upcoming events for The Vine Bleeds author, J.M. Yates.

Based on a true story, set in Melbourne, this book spans fifty years from the 1940s to the end of the 20th century. The trauma of domestic violence, experienced during Jenny and David's childhood impacts the life choices both siblings make. David follows in his father's footsteps and Jenny enters into a dysfunctional marriage. Inspired by true events, it illustrates what happens is not as important as what we do about it. It highlights Jenny's strength and spirit and her inner journey while coming to terms with her past.

My 80 year old mother in law just read this amazing book. For an “oldie” who usually falls asleep reading, her words “I just couldnt put The Vine Bleeds down”. She was gripped by Jennys story and the cruelty inflicted by her father. She was so impressed with how Jenny went on to pursue her dreams and make a great life filled with love for her husband and daughters.

May - June 2017

Former Weddings Parties Anything member Mick Thomas hits the road with the Roving Commission, performing from his retrospective CD ‘These Are the Songs’ - a lovingly crafted compilation album spanning the past eighteen years and more of his creative life. The album is the companion to Mick’s new book These Are the Days, a joyous autobiographical tale of an inspired and uniquely Australian creative force. It is a book of stories that all starts with the songs. How they got written, where and why they got written, and why they still get played. And its about the people - in the various line ups of the various bands, the people in the studio, and in the audience at the countless shows. And its about when Weddings, Parties, Anything first called it a day back in 1998 when Mick quickly realised there was no good night to go into. The book follows the stories of 31 songs, each including stories and a song chart.
