His masters voice

Anderson, D. and Tampalini, S. (1985) His masters voice. [Play] [Creative Output]


His Master's Voice was a musical packed with songs that ranged from fifties to funk, a new wave to scat, country and western to punk. The action revolved around a working class family where the father is a staunch labor man and the mother a socialite conservative. Their son is a singer in a punk band, and is seen, by the mercenary music industry promoters, as a lucrative talent. David Anderson rips the lid off the music industry and reveals the financial and social manipulations that lie within. At the same time he has also written a social-realist drama that examines how social and economic politics can effect and destroy the aspirations and dreams of a family.
