Icehouse are a long-running new wave/synth-pop band from Sydney, active since 1977, which we’ve not explored on the show so far. We make up for lost time this week with three singles from the album Flowers (1980). Then we’re excited to air a brand new track from Eddie Current Suppression Ring! It’s been a full ten years since their last album. I can’t wait to check out the new record All In Good Time. After our mix of new Canadian tracks we wrap the show with a classic from The Clean.

Stoner rock legends Tumbleweed, of Wollongong, formed in 1990, and featured members of local band Proton Energy Pills, namely the Curley brothers. This week we air a Proton Energy Pills song, an early Tumbleweed single, and a track from Brother Brick, featuring Lenny Curley on guitar. I just got back from visiting family back in Australia, and while there I attended a local gig at Smiths Alternative Bookstore where I got to see outstanding singer-songwriters Scoob McGoon, Evan Buckley (of The Burley Griffin) and hip hop artist Omar Musa of Queanbeyan We air a track-a-piece from each of these artists before the Canadian part of the show featuring new Chris-a-Riffic!
