Film Clip to My New Single – “Desire”

By 20 December 2007

As is my custom of sharing my latest music news with Riot-Acters, I thought I’d post the youtube clip to the music video for my new single “Desire”. It was made in Sydney, directed by Tajette O’Halloran, over two long nights in November. I’m pretty darn happy with it, and I’d like to know what [...]

The Henchmen return to the Transit

By 25 November 2007

I used to play with a band called The Henchmen who back in 2002 played their first gig at Toast and then went on to start a residency at the Aree Bar (now the transit) in which we built up quite a following performing with other Canberra bands such as the Pete and Fiete Band [...]

Tonight @ The Front

By 27 October 2007

Hello Friends,
Tonight at the front cafe I will be performing 2 sets. One by myself and the other a strange kind of instrumental bhutto dance piece featuring Chenoeh Miller and Lloyd Alison-Young. Also, the complete footage of the Jester Ball will be projected against a wall as a kind of installation thing for those interested [...]

Quite a few of you turned up to the jester ball which was held at the Albert Hall on May the 11th this year. The film-clip that was made from the night has been completed. It is to my song Drinking the Dregs. I hope you enjoy it and thank you immensely to everyone [...]

I recently sent out an email telling everybody what I’ve been doing for the last few months and letting all Canberrans know that I’ll be playing at the Hippo this Thursday night, the 30th of August, at about 9.15pm.

The Jester Ball

By 29 March 2007
The Jester Ball

Send in the clowns, drown in the wine, and dream with the music. Canberra’s very own Bayonet Records invites you to its film-clip Masquerade Ball. To be held at the Albert Hall on the 11th of May, the Jester Ball will be a novel and exotic evening of entertainment. The night will ignite with wild [...]

an afternoon at the george

By 14 March 2007

This saturday I’ll be performing three hours worth of original material at the george harcourt inn, from 3 to 6pm. The george harcourt is apparently a quite cosy little place right near cockington green (where all the little people live) in nichols. I haven’t been there since i was in nappies, so i can’t remember [...]

albert hall party tomorrow night NOT happening!

By 1 March 2007

I would like to urgently inform everybody that the party at albert hall advertised in BMA and Culturazi for tomorrow night is NOT happening. The mistake was on my behalf and the misadvertising is not the fault of Culturazi or BMA but myself. The party advertised was a film-clip masquerade ball including performances by The [...]

Dearest Citizens of the World,

I direct this to those who reside in Canberra. I am selling my ep, 32.20 blues, for twelve dollars. It has six very well performed, well recorded, ghost-like renditions of my originals, and one Robert Johnson.

The musicians on the album include Aaron Peacey, Simon Connolly (Hedys Lament) and Andrew Dalziell (Henchmen).

My proposal is if anybody wants to buy it, I will personally drive it to your house. It’s kind of like “ORDER A PIZZA”, except it’s “ORDER A TOM WOODWARD CD”.

SO if you’re interested, please write to me at with a suitable time for you, and I will get in my shabby old holden and deliver it to you, either at home or work, or wherever you want to be found. It’s tastier than pizza and it makes nice noises.

Konrad Lenz is turning 33.
To celebrate him entering into his Jesus year, an insane rock & roll orgy at the ANU Bar, featuring:
The formidible 7 piece rock & roll/blues/folk psychos. Like the sound of Rolling Thunder era Dylan crossed with the screaming death-hiss of a cobra snake.
MOH VAN [...]

Molotovs, Single Fathers, Polygamy and a little bit of music on the side.

By 22 April 2006

Revolutionary drinkers, starry eyed blinkers and champagne spraying sprinklers! Alert it’s a big saturday night / sunday evening that lay ahead of us with THE DADS, TOM WOODWARD and a MYSTERY ARTIST enacting out a beer hall putsch at The Pot Belly, tonight; and then on Sunday Evening at the Merry Muse you can see KONRAD LENZ, TOM WOODWARD and MIKELANGELO reflecting on their misspent youth throwing molotovs at Bill Arnett, as Bill wistfully sips a vodka from the fingers of his prosthetic right arm.
