It’s a match made in the sub tropics: Dave Smith, founder of ARIA-nominated Brisbane synth act Boxcar, has teamed with Queensland rock and roll hall of famer Mick Medew and partner Ursula to launch a series of steamy dancefloor remixes of the title track from Mick and Ursula’s “Love Is Calling” album.
Dave and Ursula go way back - to Brisbane in the ‘80s, in fact, when Dave and his schoolfriend Stephen helped make of a video for Ursula's band, Ironing Music. Mick Medew is the former leader of the legendary Screaming Tribesmen, whose “Igloo” single is an all-time Australian underground classic, and more recently vocalist and guitarist for Mick Medew and The Mesmerisers.
Boxcar scored three singles on the US Billboard charts and released two albums on Volition Records/Sony Music Australia, “Vertigo” (1990) and “Algorhythm" (1994), before disbanding in 1997. They briefly reformed in 2010 and in 2014.
“Love Is Calling” was 4ZZZ’s Album of the Week on its release in early 2022. The remix project has realised four Boxcar remixes whose titles are inspired by Dave Smith’s love of Roma and Brunswick Streets in Brisbane’s Fortitude Valley entertainment precinct.
