Tina Turner, Loose Fit and more comprise Cash Savage and the Last Drinks’ ultimate road trip playlist, shared exclusively for Happy Mag.
Later this month, Cash Savage and the Last Drinks will steal the spotlight at Wanderer Festival, taking to the stage at the Pambula Beach event alongside a slew of equally starry line-up acts from Sampa The Great to Ocean Alley and Ben Lee.
Like any great musical act, Cash Savage and the Last Drinks are all about preparation. In the lead up to their set at Wanderer Festival — which takes place over three days starting on September 29 — the Melbourne band have already prepared a stellar playlist for their road trip to the festival site in Pambula, New South Wales.
Spanning rock and roll icons like Tina Turner to local punk rockers like Cable Ties, Cash Savage and the Last Drinks have listed a dazzling array of artists to ensure their hours-long commute to the festival is soundtracked by only the best tunes — which could also include songs from their brilliant latest effort, So This Is Love.
Just ahead of what’s sure to be another smashing live performance at Wanderer Festival, we caught up with Cash Savage and the Last Drinks for a run-through of all the songs they’ll be spinning en route to the event.

Cable Ties — Thoughts Back
This new record is very excellent. Nick Brown is possibly the world’s loudest bass player. Normally I wouldn’t listen to the world’s loudest bass player but he is right. His tone is one of the best going around. Jenny’s guitar perfectly offsets it. The whole album is a masterpiece.
Gut Health – Inner Norm
We just toured with Gut Health and can confirm they are all lovely legends. Hypnotic rhythm section.
Dr Sure’s Unusual Practice – How Can Anybody be Sober These Days?
We were lucky enough to have Dougal (AKA Dr Sure) join the last drinks on guitar a few years ago. He has been such an incredible presence in the band ever since. I love everything he does.
Loose Fit – Pull The Lever
Just saw these guys in Sydney and love them.
Michael Beach – De Facto Blues.
Unarguably the loveliest man in music.
Clamm – Sucker Punch
Our engineer/producer Nao Anzai sometimes moonlights in Clamm playing synth noise stuff. Love the band, particularly love this song.
Wireheads – Hook Echo
Love Wireheads – Arrive Alive was on repeat in the tourvan a few years ago. Stoked with this new record of theirs.
Emma Russack and Lachlan Denton – I’ll Be The Rock
This song is so great. Sounds like Australia. Think Emma Russack is originally from the South Coast near Wanderer fest.
Workhorse – Alone
Cracking band from Adelaide. Amazing songs, harmonies and vibes. These guys soundtracked a significant part of 2020/2021 for me
Tina Turner – We Don’t Need Another Hero
The Foo Fighters probably should have just listened to this song and taken the day off recording.
