* Interview with Charalee Graydon, author of The Judgement Game’ *
We kick-off the show today with tracks by The Chills and The Verlaines, from the classic ‘Dunnedin Double‘ EP, the original double LP lo-fi recording that put the Flying Nun [NZ] record label on the map, way back in 1982. The fresh sounds of four bands with no prior recording experience, were captured by Chris Knox, using a simple 4 track recorder, in modest spaces like lounge-rooms. The recording was out of print for many years before returning to shelves in a limited run for Record Store Day 2014.
We conclude the show with a thought-provoking departure from our usual programming. Author Charalee Graydon joins us to discuss her debut book The Judgement Game, before the book’s official launch at Chapters in Victoria next Monday. Charalee has a professional background in the practice of criminal law and academia. She has created an interactive book with fictional scenarios, which ask for the reader’s ideas about offences committed by the protagonists and suggestions as to punishment imposed on offenders.
