Icehouse are a long-running new wave/synth-pop band from Sydney, active since 1977, which we’ve not explored on the show so far. We make up for lost time this week with three singles from the album Flowers (1980). Then we’re excited to air a brand new track from Eddie Current Suppression Ring! It’s been a full ten years since their last album. I can’t wait to check out the new record All In Good Time. After our mix of new Canadian tracks we wrap the show with a classic from The Clean.

This week we begin by revisiting the theme song of this show – ‘(I’m) Stranded’ by The Saints! This classic Ed Kuepper/Chris Bailey composition was first recorded exactly 40 years ago to the day I’m recording this show! It came out as an initial run of 500 7″ singles in September of 1976. We air the track in full as well as the brilliant b-side ‘No Time’. We follow up with a brand new track from Ed Kuepper who has been a prolific force in the world of Australian independent music since the Saints disbanded after three classic albums.

Lots of quality new Canadian music this week including a new single from Jay Arner and two stunning new artists – Alexandria Maillot of BC and Marlaena Moore from Alberta. We also introduce listeners to a spirited World Fusion group from the Okanagan called Barefoot Caravan.
