Barkly Street  is about a share house in Barkly Street, Brunswick East which began falling down about 30 seconds after Greg and his friends signed the lease. 
"The bridge that fell down" in Happy Birthday Helen is actually about the London Bridge near Port Campbell (now London Arch for obvious reasons) which fell down in 1990.
Tony hit the high note on the backing...

When did you discover the Hang, and what draws you to it? I saw it for the first time in 2003. My dad saw it at a festival and showed it to me online. I love how versatile it is, and how close together beautiful melodic elements and metallic percussion sounds are.
How does it feel to be such an instrumental figure in the discovery of this unique instrument? It's really...

Katy Steele’s thirst for new musical horizons sent the former Little Birdy frontwoman all the way to New York City. Ironically, it was the familiarity of her hometown, Perth, which provided stability, and the focus Steele needed to record her debut, Humans.


Steele’s journey of self-discovery is evident on her new record. A departure from the sound cultivated with Little Birdy,...

How does it feel to have become such instrumental figures for the people and practices of Nunavut? As an Inuk it makes me feel extremely fortunate to be able to bring forward important messages for my fellow Inuuqatiit (my people), it makes me very proud to see Inuit be proud of who they are and to see other’s be empowered and to make healthy changes in their lives.
How have you...

Back in a 1991 interview, Angus Young of AC/DC (one of the few mega-star bands that have largely – perhaps entirely to my knowledge – evaded Neil Hamburger’s wrath) quipped that he “Only knows one solo, and I’ve made a career of it.”
In the same turn, the character of Neil Hamburger essentially operates on one joke: crass exacerbations of celebrity excess. There’s nuance within,...
