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 the music of The Seekers *

In keeping with the regular format of this show, we begin with featuring some older Australian music, this week in the form of three classics from easy-listening folk act The Seekers, who celebrated their 50 year anniversary in 2012.  It shouldn’t be forgotten that this five-piece, fronted by Judith Durham, have sold millions and albums and in the mid-60s were even competing with heavy-weights like The Rolling Stones on the UK albums charts. The band broke up only 6 years after the initial whirl-wind of international acclaim that began shortly after the band’s inception.

* RIP Todd Serious of The Rebel Spell *

This week marks 30 yrs since the release of Ed Kuepper‘s debut album ‘Electrical Storm’. We open the show with the album’s epic title track, followed by a track from the classic 1990 album Today Wonder and his acoustic reworking of The Saint’s classic ‘Brisbane (Security City).’

There is sad news to report this week as well. Todd Serious, front man of socially-conscious Vancouver punk band The Rebel Spell, was found dead last weekend following a tragic rock-climbing accident. We pay respect to Todd with two tracks from The Rebel Spell’s final two masterworks – ‘It’s A Beautiful Future’ and ‘Last Run’. RIP.
