* 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.” (idlenomore.com)

*Featuring tracks from Midnight Oil and Part 1 of an interview with First Nations singer-songwriter Dom Amero from Winnipeg *

Iconic British folk singer and activist Billy Bragg, will soon be joining the panel discussion on the ABC TV Q&A program, along with some Australian politicians, including Peter Garret, former lead singer of Midnight Oil and Senator for the Labor Patty.  Bragg and Garrett are both known for their outspoken views on progressive political issues, so this show is sure to provide a thought-provoking exchange.  Today we air some Midnight Oil tracks spanning from the self-titled record of 1978 through to 1998′s ‘Redneck Wonderland’ record.  Following this is Billy Bragg, performing a live version of a rare song by Weddings Parties Anything.

Don Amero is a fine example of the new generation of hard-working independent Canadian First Nations singer-songwriters who are building solidarity through quality record releases and widespread touring.  This week I was fortunate to receive an advance copy of Amero’s most recent album ‘Heart On My Sleeve’, which contains a set of subtle acoustic tunes that sprung from a burst of inspiration following the birth of his child. Today on show I speak with Amero about his journey from a difficult upbringing in Winnipeg to his life-altering decision to purse music full time, and the growing movement of Aboriginal artists to connecting internationally.
