The Doomed Bird of Providence – You Brought the Knife

You Brought the Knife was a 2015 EP by The Doomed Bird. It followed the story of Maria Murray who was brought to Van Dieman’s Land after stabbing someone. The lyrics are based on court transcripts, and the huge help of a researcher in Tasmania who was writing an essay on the ship Maria Murray was transported on – The Borneo. Maria Murray was the mother of Fedicia Exine who featured on the first Doomed Bird album Will Ever Pray.

The artwork was by Australian artist Peter Aldrich.
