An article from an Australian music journalist was posted online recently decrying the supposed lack of contemporary protest songs being written by Australian artists. In the last week there’s been push-back from more discerning listeners who note that the writer didn’t dig deep enough, as there are dozens of examples of protest songs from scenes not dominated by caucasian and heteronormative musicians. Andrew Stafford’s Guardian article lists a number of songs including those written by Missy Higgins, Baker Boy and The Drones and you can hear those tracks on this week’s show.

We revisit legendary underground band The New Christs this week, with two blistering early singles and a track from the return-to-form Incantations record of 2014.  Songwriter and intense vocalist Rob Younger formed the New Christs in 1980 after the implosion of Radio Birdman and the band is still going strong after 5 quality albums.  This week we also revisit a 2011 interview we recorded with Steve Kilbey of The Church and we air a track from Speed of Stars – Steve’s collaborative project with Frank Kearns.  You can also hear a track from fellow radio DJ and singer-songwriter Jef Lesson from Ontario!
