* Featuring the classic ‘Weedseed’ 7″ from Woollongong stoner legends Tumbleweed *

Last weekend during the Khatsalano Fest in Kits, I strolled into Zulu Records and stumbled across a copy of the classic ‘Weedseed‘ 7″ by Tumbleweed!  What an amazing find.  It’s a beautiful 2 x orange vinyl with a photo pasted inside and cool artwork by Lenny.  Tumbleweed was the first live band I ever saw in Canberra and I always kept up with what they were doing on record.  It’s exciting to hear they have re-formed and are recording again as well.  I wonder if they’ll ever make it to North America…? Today on the show I couldn’t help but play the whole EP in it’s entirety, going right back to 1992.  For many listeners, this may be an introduction to a this classic ‘stoner’ band from Woollongong.  I’m sure you’ll be hungry for more!

Also on today’s show I feature a couple of Australian bands that are gaining attention from listeners in the US – Twerps and Royal Headache.  Both of these bands have been added to many college station playlists in the past few weeks.  Exciting stuff.  I play a track from the debut album by Australian indie rockers The Valery Trails and finish up with some local tracks by prominent folkies Geoff Berner and Buckman Coe.  MG

* Featuring Part 2 of the interview with Steve Kilbey of The Church and side-project Isidore *

‘Henry’s Dream’, the seventh full-length album by Nick Cave and the Bad Seeds, was released in North America exactly 20 yrs ago. Today on the show, I showcase the outstanding songwriting displayed on this LP, by playing two tracks, including the tender love-song ‘Straight To You’ and a third, ‘Blue Bird’, which is an outtake from the recording sessions.

And I also broadcast part two of my lastest chat with Steve Kilbey, bassist, singer, songwriter and member of the Church and numerous side-projects including Isidore. In this part of the interview, Steve reveals how he developed his musical vision during his youth in Canberra. He speaks about some of the technicalities of recording process and fills us in on the current status of The Church.  You can also enjoy three more tracks from the brand new release by Isidore, Life Somewhere Else.  Thanks for listening!

And tonight in Vancouver is the release-party for the lastest record by local faves Synthcake, at the Interurban Gallery. Two Synthcake tracks at the end of the show will wet your appetite for their hypnotic live show. MG
