I do enjoy putting together a beginning of the year show as it allows me to play you some of the tracks that may have not made the cut on previous shows over the past year and also feature oldies that are new to me and I hope, to you also.
That said, this show starts with a great collaboration between the mighty Jason Williamson and the International Teachers of Pop, a rather domestic little number about a pair of plimsols. Nice just to hear the word plimsols these days rather than the bog standard sneakers or trainers reference.
Sunny Sydney Christmas turned into a satanic like dystopian smoke engulfed nightmare this year and we document this in the show with our namesake song by Johnny Cash, Arthur Brown's Fire and the classic Australian heat song, "Too Hot to Move" by The Triffids. Unfortunately the only people who haven't been moving in the heat are the politicians, many others have had to as the choice has been lose you home or life. At the time this show was recorded over 800 homes have been destroyed and the fire season only officially started a few weeks back. The fires have been so awful that they have killed entire Koala populations putting this little bear close to extinction, this year our xmas money went to https://www.fnpw.org.au/
Our favourites of 2019 that missed shows the first time round include Rian Treanor's track, "Good News". Really looking forward to new music by this producer in 2020. He might not be so in your face as the might Giant Swan but that same sense of dread disgust and anger are to be found in his compositions and they'll sit perfectly in the year coming where we'll all have to suffer the next US presidential election, we've left the last song of the show as a reminder of that particular fact. Also included are songs from newbies Meagher Benefits, The Soft Walls, Mush & Autarkic. We hope to hear more from them this year
On the slightly crazed side we've included a DJ Bus Replacement favourite by Michael Forshaw, 'I Love Horses'. Also a Hindi version of Donna Summer's , "Love to Love You Baby", The Fall covering a Sun Records Gem , "F-oldin Money $" and Klaus Blatter's "(I Find Myself Surrounded By) The Lunatics of Acid House" in which he manages a couplet rhyming house and spouse!
Favourite band names of the month are The Steve McQueens & Gabber Modus Operandi.
