* Featuring Los Angeles based musician and film maker Peter Foldy LIVE in the CiTR studio *

Today is an extra-special show as we welcome into the studio Peter Foldy, a Los Angeles-based musician and film maker who we interviewed previously on the phone (podcast #133).  Peter is most well-known for his 1973 hit song Bondi Junction and has since gone on to establish himself as a photographer, screenplay writer and filmmaker (e.g Silver Man, 2000).

Throughout his years in Hollywood, Peter has continued to write, record and produce music.  Peter is finalizing tracks for an upcoming album and he is currently in Vancouver assisting Todd Fancey of the New Pornographers record a solo record.  Today on the show we feature a number of Peter’s new recordings, and Peter speaks extensively about his music, his film work and his teenage years in Sydney where he was friends with the amazing Bee Gees when they were first starting out!

* Featuring tracks from the two EPs by first-generation punk band The Victims from Perth, WA and a two part interview with First Nations Blues musician Murray Porter *

First up on the show I feature tracks from The Victims who were active in Perth, WA from 1977-79.  On vocals and guitar is Dave Faulkner, who went on to become the front man of the legendary Hoodoo Gurus. ‘Television Addict’ is the band’s signature single, being a mainstay on many punk/garage compilations and covered by bands such as You Am I and Hellacopters.

Today I pay tribute to Peter Gordon, a member of 60s British pop duo The Marbles, who scored an international hit with the song ‘Only One Woman‘.  Peter, who passed away this past week, immigrated to Australia in the 1950s where he became friends with the Bee Gees when they were first starting out.  Peter played lead guitar on some early Bee Gees songs before relocating back to England and eventually forming The Marbles with his cousin Graham. Thanks to Peter Foldy for letting the listeners know about this wonderful act from a golden-age of pop music.

The First Nations self determination Idle No More movement is gaining momentum in Canada so this week is a great time to revisit the interview with inspiring First Nations blues musician Murray Porter.  Part 1 was aired last December but on today’s show you can hear both parts 1 and 2.  Following this you can enjoy three more amazing contemporary Canadian First Nations artists who are all performing this weekend at the Native America North Showcase in New York City –  Elisapie, Don Amero and Digging Roots.

“Idle No More calls on all people to join in a revolution which honors and fulfills Indigenous sovereignty which protects the land and water.” (
