Stranded podcast #237

* Featuring a retrospective on The Church *

Here on Stranded we periodically re-visit the exquisite and arguably peerless musical back catalogue of legendary Australian band The Church.  And it’s fitting this week given the band, who have been recording masterworks of lyrically-evocative guitar-driven psychedelia since 1980, are embarking on a North American tour in support of their 25th album ‘Further/Deeper’, which includes a date in Vancouver on 21 Feb!  A contingent of hard-core fans have expressed dismay with the departure of founding guitarist Marty Willson-Piper but it’s clear from listening closely to the new record, that replacement Ian Hague (formerly of Powderfinger) has very ably stepped in to fill Marty’s formidable shoes.

* 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
