*Featuring more tracks from the ‘Smell My Finger’ re-issue by The Hard-Ons and interviews with Kim Churchill and Gumby from Benjalu, recorded backstage at Fortune Sound Club *

We start this evening’s show with some more tracks from the just-released ‘Smell My Finger’ re-issue by The Hard-Ons on Sydney’s seminal Citadel Records.   We’re going right back to the mid-80s when The Hard-Ons were first making waves for their infectiously catchy songs played at ear-splitting volume to punters in Sydney (and soon beyond).

Kim Churchill is back for an extensive Canadian tour and I caught up with this amazingly talented guitarist and young solo singer/songwriter, backstage at Fortune Sound Club in Vancouver.  Kim recorded a limited edition EP of tracks in an attic in Montreal on his last tour and I feature a couple of tracks from this special release (including the beautiful number ‘Sarah’ that he played here in Vancouver at the memorial for the late Todd Simko).

Supporting Kim on his tour is Gumby from the band Benjalu, playing solo.  I also recorded an interview with Gumby back stage at the gig.  MG
