Although this show is predominantly supposed to be about new releases there is the odd occasion when there is simply not enough new music to fill a two hour show. This week proved to be one of those situations. After a deep dive on the Snarski Brothers a couple of weeks back I though I’d focus on another Australian institution, albeit one that is slightly better known. The Go-Betweens were unique and rather special and i’ve picked some of my favourite tracks from the bands first phase as well as selecting music by the two main members Robert and Grant in solo and side project mode. There are also contemporary companions who joined Robert and Grant on the journey who are featured.

I’ve been listening to a lot of King Crimson lately and it struck me I had not featured them much in recent years. With Van Der Graaf they tend to be regarded as worthy survivors of that first prog wave between 1969-1976. Indeed they have stayed the course and KC are touring as I write and VDGG have some dates coming up next year. Their back catalogue is immense and picking tracks is always a time consuming affair. I hope i’ve done them justice.

My continuing detailed look at the back catalogue of the Moodists is close to conclusion, there are a few more live tracks and the tracks that appeared on the Creation box set a few years back to feature. After that is finished i’ll get back to my exploration of Dave Graney and Clare Moore’s discography and am keenly anticipating a new album soon.

James from The Red Propellers has kindly given me an exclusive with a new track – it’s a cover of a Captain Beefheart classic and shows a new face of the band. It’s from the soundtrack of a new film. Of course I had to play some Captain as well.

There are some new releases as well – just not as many as usual!
