The South Australian music industry will gather at one of the city's most popular venues this November for the Fowler's Live Music Awards for 2012.

I first saw Graveyard Train on Spicks and Specks, performing cover songs in their own unique style. I was enthralled then by their swampy, gritty country sound.

You have to admire a band who chooses to keep time with a hammer and chain, rather than the typical tambourine.
