A Living Wake for the “Jesus of Westralia Street”–Darwin Railway Club, 3 December 2010

A Living Wake for the “Jesus of Westralia Street”–Darwin Railway Club, 3 December 2010

Well he’s up late at night with the work light on, He’s gonna write a book but first he’s getting out his bong, He’s drinking red cask wine, smoking home grown reefer, Got the stereo on, he’s listening to Aretha, They call him Jesus of Westralia Street. Lyrics for "Jesus of Westralia Street", Tracey Bunn/Colin Holt

Andrew -- a proud sort of bloke -- has always refused to go on the dole, so has scant resources to fall back on. That's why his friends and colleagues are staging a "Living Wake" to raise funds for his needs until he is back on his feet again. The idea of a Living Wake has some appeal to Andrew – he will be around, in the words of Big Bill Neidjie – the Kakadu Man – “to hear the nice things said about me”.
