In the sleazy coffee bars of bohemian Sydney the Rymers were born. For a generation they offered access to a world of illusion and enthralment. Marrying the ancestral energies of immigrant ballads to the faeryworld of the European occult, this electric folk group seemed to embody the questing religious spirit of a decade. They had the enigmatic voice of an East European refugee, the instrumental skills of a vagrant country singer, the inspired arrangements of a self-educated Tasmanian mystic. The universe was double. They couldn't fail. But as the group stood on the threshold of international stardom, the darker side of enchantment started to assert its presence. In a miasma of sexual jealousy, magic mushrooms and apocalyptic mysticism, the fragile collaboration that had shaped their music began to fall apart.
