“In East Timor…” Shannon and Theo have reached Dili in Timor Leste on their journey across Europe and Asia, trying to reach Australia without flying. There’s a deep connection with East Timor, because of Shannon’s song “With My Hammer”, inspired by solidarity action with the Timorese fighting for Independence in the 1990s. Here we are visiting the site of the Santa Cruz massacre which was caught on film by journalist Max Stahl, whose ashes are now buried at the site. The footage, which alerted the world to Indonesian oppression in East Timor, is included in Paul O Connor’s excellent video of With My Hammer (below). ... See MoreSee Less
This is the Seize The Day song Theo wrote after he went with Shannon to Palestine in 2001 supporting the non -violent resistance movement ISM. Obviously things have got a lot tougher since, both on the West Bank and in Gaza. ... See MoreSee Less
20 years ago Theo and Shannon decided to reduce their climate impact by stopping flying. Now they are travelling overland to Australia, and it will take 8 months there and back, so the band won’t be available for gigs until next June. ... See MoreSee Less

Hey Theo & Shannon, been a long time! I found my way here cause some friends posted the wish to support each other as a way of resisting consumerism and I was looking for a link to seizetheday.org/music/bigger-better-brighter-2/ I could send them. Australia! Thats where I live! Please come and do a gig at the Narara Ecovillage when you're on the East Coast.
