Split Enz are a legendary band from New Zealand, who were popular in the last 70s to early 80s and who featured the songwriting talents of Neil and Tim Finn. We kick off this week’s show with three tracks from the True Colours album (1980), starting off with the extraordinary single ‘I Got You.’ Victory Lap is the latest project of Melbourne’s Alex Badham (formerly Aleks and The Ramps) and we air a track from their debut record as well as a Sonic Youth cover that Ben Lee has released on his latest record Quarter Century Classix.
