One of the most unlikely of band reunions of the last few years has been that of Midnight Oil. Frontman Peter Garret spent years working in politics following the original disbanding of the group in 2002 before a full scale reformation took place in 2016, with a subsequent world tour. New material is expected in 2020, so while we wait, we air three classics from the band at the top of the show. Aussie two-piece An Horse are back after a lengthy break since their last record and you can hear come-back single ‘This Is A Song’ on the show, along with our regular mix of new Oz and Canadian tracks.

This week, after re-visiting the back-catalogue of Sydney-based punk legends Hard-Ons,  we introduce listeners to singer-songwriter Kerryn Fields.  Kerryn was born and bred in New Zealand, and has since established herself in the eclectic Melbourne music scene. I was fortunate to see Kerryn play a set at this year’s Arts Wells Festival and then meet her to record an interview. Tune in to hear Kerryn speak about the leap of faith she took to travel relocate to Australia, with only a few songs written at the time, which has lead to her first Canadian tour after much inspiration and hard work. You can also hear tracks from some more artists who played Arts Wells – Jeff Andrew, Old.Soul.Rebel, Kimmortal and Ostwelve.

Two-thirds of The Victims, originally from Perth, WA, reformed recently, and recruited Hard-Ons bassist Ray Ahn, for a series of very well received shows in Australia. This precipitated a recording session, including the track ‘Charlie’, which was written by drummer James Baker, way back in the 70’s, about the late Charles Manson.  We air that short punchy track at the top of the show, along with The Victims classic 1978 single ‘Television Addict’.

I’m overjoyed to air a track from the long-awaited full-length from Chris Ashler’s Chris-a-riffic project, titled Post Season! Chris is a much-loved Vancouver-based piano teacher and host of CiTR’s long running Parts Unknown show. I’m grateful for Chris’ friendship and encouragement over the years and look forward to airing more tracks from the album in upcoming shows.
