This is a short post to acknowledge and pay tribute to unique Australian musician Gregory Hilleard, who passed away in Tasmania last night, on January 15th 2022. I grew up knowing Greg from outlandish Brisbane experiments such as Strontium Dog, The Neil Armstrong Experience, The Invisible Empire, Tripod, The Lost Domain and The Standing Eight Counts. He went on to play in many dozens of acts, and was sonically influential to so many people. Most recently he had been performing solo under the name Papa Lord God and released The Sheik of Downfall Creek on Feeding Tube in 2018.
