Heaps of News


Some more information that has come to light via Darren
a reader from here in Brisbane he also sent this great pic.

Just some other info if you didn't already know: David Nichols
(Blairmailer, Crabstick, Huon, Driving Past, The Cannanes)
the guy who put out the distant violins fanzines
also wrote the excellent Go-Betweens bio some years back.
He's quite the Go-Betweens fan. Think he popped up in the
recent '16 lover's lane' doco on sbs a few weeks back
(the one you posted).
ps- almost forgot, the spill label has some good free comps
if you don't already have them.
http://spill-label.org/compilations.php
some Blairmailer/Crabstick tracks there and a cracking
Small World Experience tribute album.
Surprised you missed out on the Brisbane sound first gig,
s.w.e. were ace!

Its true to say the David Nichols thing went right over my head,
I enjoyed his input vastly more than Ben Lee's.
I must get a copy of this book.
The web site for spill-label is fantastic, there's heaps free
music there, quite a bit of it Brisbane.
I'm going to be downloading for a while.
Thanks Darren.

Anyone who has got to any of the gigs I would
love to hear all about it.

Just dropping you an email to let you know that
Robert Forster is doing a live radio session on
the Marc Riley (ex-Fall, ex-Creepers) show on
BBC radio 6.

It's either Tues or Weds at 19:00 bst. The details
aren't on the website yet but the format is usually
the guest kicks off the show with a live track then
2 more, one at 19:40 ish & the final one at 20:15 ish.
It's a top show usually have a live session every night
& pretty good mix of indie music & not just your
4 skinny indie kids' brand of indie either.
