Song of the day (Australia) – 149: The Birthday Party

No explanation required here, I hope. The interview that follows the video is lifted from Careless Talk Costs Lives #6 – which came out in January 2003 (split cover with Erase Errata because we figured Nick to be a little too well-known to command the cover just by himself). I think the order of it […]

Song of the day – 121: Byron Lee And The Dragonaires

I’ll be honest with you. This is the music that, nine times out of 10, we greet the new day with (this, and also, to a lesser extent, The Specials). It’s straightforward enough.

(As Jack Endino wryly remarks on […]

Joanna Newsom live @ The Tivoli, 16.01.10

Joanna Newsom played a few weeks back in Brisbane. On occasion, she bordered on the magical: her voice slightly more reminiscent of Kate Bush then I recall it being before: the song about the daddy long-legs being particularly charming and lengthy (I might have dreamed the subject matter): the drummer in particular bringing his instrument […]
