  • Featuring the ‘Human Frailty’ album by Hunters and Collectors *

Along with a great mix of new Canadian music, this week we also feature all four of the singles from the classic Hunters and Collectors album ‘Human Frailty’. I lucked upon a CD copy of the album at Zulu records recently (thanks Grant!). Led by songwriter Mark Seymour, Hunters and Collectors formed in 1981 in Melbourne and by the time of recording ‘Human Frailty’ had become a powerful presence on the Australian pub rock scene. This 1986 landmark record for the band was noted for it’s effective melding of guitar and horn driven hard rock and intense lyrics about sexual politics and alienation. Featuring such classic songs as ‘Throw Your Arms Around Me’ It’s a fine entry point into the catalogue of one of the all time great Australian bands.
