* Featuring an interview with Steve from Melbourne noise/punk band Useless Children *

Tonight my home recording project M.Lund is supporting some fantastic local musicians!  First up on the show you can hear Reef Shark, Collapsing Opposites and Ruffled Feathers who play Astorino’s in Vancouver this eve.

Earlier this year I had a chance encounter with Steve, the bassist of Melbourne-based punk band Useless Children who were playing at a basement show in Vancouver while on tour of the West Coast.  We had a great chat in the backyard and agreed to connect again on the phone for an interview.  Today you can here Steve speak about the recent tour, his bands uncompromising sound and his connection to legendary fuzzed-out Australian band Magic Dirt and their singer Adalita

More from The Meanies! This week we play through the entire ‘In Search of…’ EP from 1992. Perhaps you’ll fall in love with their infectious off-kilter melodies and cutting riffs like I did many years ago. They’re certainly not the most prolific band (no full length recordings since ’93) but you could still catch them playing shows in Melbourne to this day.

Gold Fields are playing Vancouver next Saturday night at Fortune Sound Club. We did some on air ticket giveaways on the show today and during the week, the first 3 people to email ozstranded@fastmail.fm can also receive free tickets to the show!

I’m excited to air a track from the debut EP from Irish ex-pat Amergin.   I met Amergin at an open-mike a number of months back and I was really taken with his heart-felt acoustic tunes.  At that point he’d not recorded anything despite having a plentiful supply of self-penned numbers.  He finally texted me today with news that he had finally recorded his debut EP!  Keep an eye out for Amergin at upcoming shows in the city of Vancouver…
