* Featuring tracks from the seminal ‘X-Aspirations’ LP by X *

This week we explore the early sounds of seminal underground Australian punk band ‘X‘ (not to be confused with the equally significant American band of the same name’. The classic incarnation of this edgy Sydney institution featured the monstrous bass-work of rock and roll outlaw Ian Rilen and the powerfully expressive Steve Lukas on vocals. Ugly Pop records have recently released the’ X-Spurt’s LP which is a set of songs recorded by the band in the front room of someone’s house in Western Sydney in 1977. Amazingly, the tapes were lost for decades until someone discovered them in storage. Included in this session was a version of perhaps X’s best known song ‘Degenerate Boy’, which we air in the show today. This is followed by three tracks from the classic ‘X-Aspirations’ LP from 1979, which has also been re-released recently on Ugly Pop.

* Featuring an interview with Vancouver-based free-jazz electronica act coolfog *

Today’s show is a great reminder for local musicians to get in touch with us, because not only can have your tunes aired on the show, but you can even come into the studio for an interview!  That’s what Michael Raphael did recently with his free-jazz electronica project coolfog.

Michael introduces us to the world of synth-based home recordings.  He spins some of his highly inventive tunes for us, as well as some of his favourite tracks from local electronic acts, and a throwback to 1980s Canadian pop act Chalk Circle.
