Alright, time for some discussion on what yr all listening too. My iTunes inventory is getting a little stale so I'm up for some inspiration.

Currently loving The Drones' album "Havilah".. incredible songwriting and some of the best recorded guitars and drum I've heard in a long time. I'm a little late to the party with this album but it's on high rotation at the moment and will probably stay there a while. I've seen these guys live once (Fowlers, Adelaide) and fortunately they're incredible on stage too. Can't wait to see them again.

Brilliant Gig with the roving Neon Pyramid...(Top 40 but-ultra COOL)

Punks loved the disruptive cold stark sound as well...None hid the fact!
tbb's 'Electroshock' vinyl is kinda rare but keeps true to Alt / Punk era.
All these futuristic tracks got a good run on tbb's communal turntable...

Sure! tbb was in punk/Goth bands...but this music did influence tbb as much.
Did a few Electroshock recordings! One track strangely gets better with age.

Saw the Gary Numan gig in Sydney at the Capitol Theater, great concert, although the roving neon pyramid wasn't roving this particular night due to some sort of malfunction.
Gunna have to check out the Grace Jones album, the song she wrote with the two girls from Princes band is brilliant, as is this live performance of it.

Hey a great song to surf to, turn loose by horror my friend

OK here’s a micro-playlist to celebrate life and the bittersweet journey back to home and loved ones.

The impending conclusion of a successful mission with great waves and better people entering the transit stage. All of these songs have been taken out of context in one way or another , but I really do not give a fuck.

1/ Tomorrow morning I’ll be watching the sun burst above the wing as we bank into the homecoming beauty of a Sydney harbour dawn. Now , I barely recognise the joint anymore and this song is referencing somewhere entirely different, but the sentiment is the same - the heart swelling with joy for the sacred ground of your home and the welcoming arms of those you’ve missed.

“Driving down the road I get the feeling that I should have been home .....yesterday.”

https://youtu.be/1vrEljMfXYo

2/ Yep , this song is about a fictional character who just happens to be a ruthlessly thugish international agent of clandestine influence and I’ve repurposed it as an ode to Indonesia.

Hey...it’s my playlist , I’ll do what I like.

https://youtu.be/7__rt0hRm8s

3 / One of my all time favourite songs. Far from being a desperate plea for the impossibility of static perpetuation, I choose to interpret this song as an urging to celebrate each moment in your life as a piece of perfection.

Granted , this is easier when life is shining on you , but fuck it , that’s how I feel . Never stop appreciating the world around you.

Merry Christmas you legends

South wind will bring you in on the flight path for the north/south runway, so as the wing tips dip to the Dharawal Nation, then nod your head to the land of Blackwells, the Republic of Gava or any other big-hearted bastard directing traffic on a solid day off Third Peg, black panther country, and the country of vanishing black gold in the catacombs below, like the vanished red cedar that grew on the surface before it, where the mountains meet the sea, you're flying over Sacred Ground.

If they could have based their verses on the vibe and absolute catchy-ness of the chorus then it would have been that bit sweeter.

Well here’s some nostalgia.

Uncle Brad played this in the cab of his truck as we necked a couple of pingers previous to the start of a New Years party many moons ago. It was old school then - Nirvana ruled my world at the time - but it still resonated.

https://youtu.be/Mzyz2egx_0c

The night finished the next morning-as the best nights do - with the hard tripping host of the party going toe to toe with an irate party goer who refused to chill the fuck out. Feathers flying out the back of the plait trailing from his bald head , this Ex Pro surfer - who I’d been told had a plate in his head from hitting the bottom at Sunset - went to town on the party spoiler with a smooth and sweet combination to the face and head.

A flurry of punches and our host was immediately magnanimous to the fool. I do believe that the party ended there, but it was on its last legs anyway, with the sun breaching over the light industrial area a few kilometres behind the beach where the party was staged.

Good times, great memories.

RIP Brad . Thanks for the inspiration. Turns out you were my mentor . Cheers.

Saw GH front Charm School at PP Reccy Club in '88. Was having a chicken snitty dinner with the parents and their friends, us kids all haunched over the Galaga machine downstairs in the games room, targetting the double starfighter, or the Holy Trinity, the triple starfighter which, when used well, would give you a near 100% fire rate during the opening stanza when the aliens come flying diagonally out of each corner. When the 20 cent coins ran out we went back upstairs where GH, who I recognised from Cronulla though I was a bit younger, was setting up, rocking black second skin leather pants, a ripped black half-done up shirt, and a black leather bandana around his head, tatts and patented plait on show. Parents wanted to kick on, and they did, till the noise and optics - dancing girls and lewd Jagger moves - got too much.

Saw him in the surf at north end the next day. From memory he moved up there the year afterwards.

Look, I don't want to jump the shark or flog a dead horse but go back to that old James Brown clip and watch from 2.40 to 2.45.

If that's not the best approach to a mic in the history of music, well I don't know what is.

And while we're at it, 3.50 to 4.05 is just fuck you, see you later, get out of town.
