The Falling Swinger is as Happy as Larry

After six albums of self-produced material Stephen Cummings has recorded with a producer for the first time since his days with The Sports. Steve Kilbey of The Church took the reins on Stephen's latest album Falling Swinger, producing a sensuous, laidback collection full of Cummings trademark emotional style.

Steve Cummings is a regular favourite with the critics since turning solo in the mid eighties after fronting The Sports, who had such memorable hits as "Don't Throw Stones" and "Who Listens To The Radio". He has since had a string of successful albums and the odd hit single like "Backstabbers" and "Hell (You Put Me Through)". The Buzz spoke to Steve to find out what he's up to now.
