Guns n Roses covered the Rose Tattoo classic ‘Nice Boys’ on their 1988 record Lies and they invited legendary, diminutive front-man Angry Anderson on stage at their recent Sydney stadium show to blast through a version of the track.  You can hear this track from the 1978  self titled album, and two other Rose Tattoo classics at the top of show.  We debut the new single ‘Head Above Water’ from punchy Melbourne-based two-piece This Way North. And lots of great new Canadian music in the 2nd half of the show including tracks from Toronto-based acts Julie and the Wrong Guys (featuring Eamon McGrath) and Century Palm.

* Featuring tracks by Sydney band The Whitlams as tribute to the passing of former Prime Minister Gough Whitlam *

This past week marked the passing of the 21st Prime Minister of Australia – Gough Whitlam. He was 98 years old.  Gough was PM from 5 December 1972 – 11 November 1975.  During this period he enacted a wide range of progressive policies, including free health care and university education, Aboriginal land rights and the establishment of the publicly-funded 2JJJ radio, which became the much-loved institution JJJ.  He even inspired the formation of a band – The Whitlams, formed by songwriter/pianist Tim Freedman, and the late Stevie Plunder and Andy Lewis.   We play three early Whitlams’ songs today, including their ‘theme song’ of sorts called ‘Gough’ which references the famous and controversial ‘dismissal’ of Gough as PM, by the Governor General, on Nov 11 1975.
