Epi 182: Jon Stevens joins INXS

4/7/2024
After confidence boosting performances with Terence Trent D'Arby, the Tim Rice Extravaganza and closing out the 2000 Olympic Games, INXS sought an old mate to take the frontman duties in ex Noiseworks lead singer, Jon Stevens. Having carved a 20 plus year career as a soloist, frontman and pivotal member of the 1992/93 Jesus Christ Superstar revival stage show throughout Australia, Jon’s credentials were bonafide and deserving. With domestic tours throughout Australia, subsequent ones to the USA, Latin America and Europe, it looked like INXS had overcome the inner uncertainty that plagued their previous 4 years. Armed with a plan to assert themselves across the globe in both a “live concert” and recording sense, optimism was high. Despite strong reviews of Jon’s contribution to the band particularly in the performing sense, Jon would get disheartened with the lack of band creativity in the studio. With the sole single “I Get Up” released in 2003 to coincide with the Rugby Union World Cup the only fresh material, Jon would decide to leave INXS to pursue his own musical interests. That aside, Jon’s contribution to the healing, morale and confidence for INXS to continue as a going concern entity cannot be underestimated and should be appreciated. We also go back to the year 1998 with a little pleasure and pain segment highlighting the sheer disparity of great and not so great songs that permeated the airwaves. So sit back, pour yourself a favourite tipple and enjoy a jam packed episode 182 of INXS: Access all Areas. Plus the all important comp comes to an end and we see who will win the 2 tickets to the Rock & Roll Hall of Fame. for more info check out our website https://www.inxsaccessallareas.com/

Episode 181: INXS’ Most Impactful 25 Songs

3/28/2024
Nobody loves a good list more than Haydn. In today’s episode of the INXS Access All Areas podcast, Bee allows him to indulge his longstanding wish to prosecute the case of which 25 INXS songs have had the most impact and importance within the cultural zeitgeist. With a recording career that started in 1980 via their eponymous debut album, and culminated in 2010’s Original Sin reworking of old material, the band has written over 300 songs. So determining the top 25 that will still resonate in 100 years was a massive undertaking with many songs landing at '26!' Impact and importance are different criteria to favourite or best song. It's about which 25 songs, more than others, resonate with the public consciousness, whether it's the charts, fan enjoyment, legacy, musicianship or simply propelled the band forward in their progression from Aussie touring band to international superstardom. So sit back, enjoy, agree, disagree, prosecute or revel in what might be our most controversial topic ever!!! Love and peace. Haydn and Bee. Entry to the Competition ends on 31st March.

Episode 180: INXS Compilation Albums Part 2 / 2001-2002

3/23/2024
In episode 131, we embarked on a deep dive into INXS compilation albums (1982’s INXSIVE and 1994 Greatest Hits) with attention and detail. In the 2001-2002 period, INXS Management undertook the release of two distinct compilation albums for two different regions. “Shine like it Does” under their USA label Rhino, a 42 song extravaganza covering 1979-1997 released primarily in the USA. Secondly, “The Years:1979-1997” for their Australian market, a 41 song deep dive catalogue representation covering their Australasian and global career. With the band in a holding pattern, both releases served to remind old fans and new ones, the deep musical contribution INXS made to the sonic soundscapes since the inception. Both these releases overcame the shortfalls of 1994’s Greatest Hits releases in the USA, UK and Australia respectively and provided true fans with a thorough representation of their singles, appropriate album deep cuts and liner notes within to die for! Often, complication albums can be a cynical record company cash grab exploiting each albums continued sale prospects. Pleasingly, this isn’t one of these exercises as both discs cover nearly 95% of the band’s recording successes. So for collectors without these double discs, for those unaware of their existence and to those who share a fondness and musical memory of these immense releases, do yourself a favour and listen in as we dive deep on all the interesting anecdotes and facts about these two mighty releases. Also listen out to our Fan Engagement section, with Bee & Danyelle, when they thank the fans who have contributed to the socials over the past week.

178 Mark Pellington Part 2 'The Phone Call'

3/2/2024
INXS: Access all Areas listeners were given a unique treat last week that being Part One of Mark Pellington whose industry credits go far beyond the Beautiful Girl video. Left with a cliffhanger as Mark escalated his frustration upon hearing INXS were not in fact, in the Rock Hall of Fame, we share in Part two’s deep dive what that phone call entailed! Additionally, Mark opens up about how a personal family tragedy informed his artistic expression particularly in the year new millennium as he was increasingly chased by emerging artists such as The Fray, Keane, Kings of Leon, The Flaming Lips and The Dave Matthews Band. We get to hear Mark’s interesting foray into acting much at the behest of iconic filmmaker Cameron Crowe (eg. Fast Times at Ridgemont High, Jerry Maguire and Almost Famous). Plus continued admiration for the musicianship and excellence of INXS and how working with true superstars such as Michael Hutchence and Bono affected Mark as a Director. All that and a whole lot more as we for the rarest of times, welcome a secret third wheel to the hosting duties all the way from Ottawa Canada!

2/16/2024
Famed USA Video, Film, Doco and TV Director, Mark Pellington joins INXS: Access all Areas to dive deep on his fantastic video for 1993 INXS single “Beautiful Girl” amidst many other broader conversations. Having gotten his start via MTV in 1983, Mark was at the forefront of when the video clip explosion was at the epicenter of the watching audience zeitgeist. Working initially with artists such as Leonard Cohen, De La Soul and PM Dawn, it was his future work with Pearl Jam’s “Jeremy” video that brought Mark’s unbridled talents into the forefront of the music industry heavy hitters. As such, he went on a peerless run Directing for U2 (One), Public Enemy (Shut em Down), REM (Drive), Alice In Chains (Rooster) plus Springsteen, Keane, The Flaming Lips and obviously our beloved INXS. Interestingly, it was INXS that would bring him his sole Grammy nomination eventually losing out to Peter Gabriel’s “Steam” video (Urghhhh). Mark generously opens up how personal grief informed much of creative ideas and we get to dive deep on his work with other artists, feature films and his love of the Australian music industry culminating a cliffhanger moment regarding INXS’ lack of recognition by the Rock Hall of Fame Committee that shall leave you clamouring for an early release of Part Two.

Epi 176: “INXS face the new Millennium”!

2/10/2024
With the year 2000 upon us, the world was entering an exciting new century. Music, cinema, pop culture and the arts were evolving and INXS were starting to take bigger steps in a world without Michael Hutchence. With the dust settling on Michael’s posthumous album release, INXS took the left field move of signing up to the Tim Rice Spectacular Concert Series through Australia. Joining recognized artists such as Iva Davies (Icehouse), David Essex (Rock On) and a bevy of renowned Australian artists re-interpreting Tim’s amazing back catalogue of songs. With confidence slowly returning as an entity, the band continued to surprise teaming up with Jon Stevens (formerly Noiseworks) for two impromptu but sold out gigs in Melbourne and Sydney. With fans traveling as far as Chicago and the UK to attend these gigs, the level of passion and pride at seeing a full-set INXS gig again was palpable! Combined with some private corporate gigs, the band made their long awaited international return headlining the closing ceremony of the 2000 Olympic Games with a rollicking updated version of What you Need that had the crowd on their feet. So with small steps, INXS were getting their mojo back in a steady and incremental way against the odds.

Alex Proyas: Kissing the Dirt and Hollywood 2024! We are pleased to have famed Director and true auteur Alex Proyas on today’s episode of INXS: Access all Areas to share fascinating insights and anecdotes around the filming in Coober Pedy, South Australia of “Kiss the Dirt” video in early 1986. ARIA award nominated, this led to iconic videos for the emerging Crowded House band’s “Don’t dream it’s over” and “Better be home soon” hits that created the impetus for Alex to go overseas and pursue his ultimate passion being “feature films”. A true sci-fi disciple, Alex went onto work with famed actors Brandon Lee, William Hurt, Kiefer Sutherland, Will Smith, Chadwick Bozeman, Jennifer Connelly and Nicolas Cage in iconic productions such as The Crow, Dark City, I Robot and Gods of Egypt, Alex is a true surrealist and auteur to his craft of making meaningful and impactful cinematic art for all the right reasons.

Epi 173: Michael Hutchence Solo Album: Part 2 - Song by song review

1/14/2024
Welcome to 2024 to all of our wonderful bronze, silver, gold and platinum patrons and loyal listeners. We kick off the new year (pardon the pun) with Part 2 our important deep dive into Michael Hutchence’s posthumous solo release with a song-by-song review. Following part one, we see how Michael stretches his musical capabilities and range both lyrically and sonically to great effect. Haunting, open and often literal, Michael’s lyrics have never been more specific and brutal. We discuss each track and rate them accordingly, with our unique criterion. Sonically lush, guitar-wise, often dirty and emotionally heartbreaking, I recommend listening to this album for the healing and the true insight into what Michael was truly feeling in his final years. This episode of the INXS AAA podcast is completed with additional news items and details about our competitions just launched. We nudge the 100-minute mark, so this action-packed episode may be your own two parter! We struggled to contain our enthusiasm and passion for what was a truly meaningful project for Michael, Danny Saber and Andy Gill.

Epi 172: Michael Hutchence Solo Album Part One.

12/25/2023
After 2 years of mourning, copious amounts of gossip innuendo and grief, finally INXS and Michael Hutchence fans have something meaningful and strangely healing to celebrate. This posthumous release of 13 unique and varied tracks were originally the brainchild of a phone call (make that two) from Michael in 1995 to legendary UK Gang of Four band leader Andy Gill. With the duo residing in the comfortable, calm and tranquil surrounds of the South of France, an environment of immense creativity and teamwork was established leading to a vast amount of songs and demos laid down. Knowing Co-Production support and proper studio surrounds were required, enter famed US alternative Producer and musician Danny Saber plus both the legendary Peter Gabriel Real World Studios amidst many others. The songs contained a lyrical honesty, earnestness and soundscape unheard of from Michael before, which given his 1995 surroundings, was to be expected. With no timelines or management interference, this self-financed labour of love had no release date time pressures, hence was parked when Michael returned to INXS commitments in 1996 and 1997. But with Michael’s unfortunate passing in November 1997, the integrity of these recordings were salvaged by an “angel from Los Angeles” in Danny Saber to whom we shall all be eternally grateful. So sit back and enjoy what a monumental task it was to simply get this album to the release phase plus the circumstances and facts that lead to one of Michael’s greatest recording efforts.

Having had over 18 months to process the passing of Michael Hutchence, INXS were presented with the unique opportunity to spearhead the opening of Stadium Australia. The venue that would in the year 2000, be the home of the Sydney Olympic Games. With ex Australian cricketing icon Dean Jones putting the deal together, INXS were proud to be the lead musical act that preceded the Australian Socceroos playing the FIFA All-Stars on June 12th, 1999 with over 90,000 spectators packing the venue. All they needed was a lead singer!!! Easier said than done. Enter famed USA soul, pop and R&B vocalist Sananda Maitreya then know as Terence Trent Darby, who some 10 years earlier, “came like a comet” (hello The Waterboys) onto the music scene with his 10,000,000 + Introducing the Hardline debut album. Was this to be a one-off? A rent-try-buy arrangement or some other modus operandi.

Epi 169: INXS “1998- And then there were 5!”

12/2/2023
When a family, a band and a fan base lose somebody as omnipresent as Michael Hutchence, it’s inevitable that a period of uncertainty, angst and healing are required. That’s what 1998 was for INXS as each member had to come to terms with their lives irrevocably changing forever. So in today’s INXS AAA podcast episode, we examine the environment and circumstances that faced the band, management, the fans and upsurge in tabloid media as we tried to make sense in a world without Michael Hutchence. Would the band tour again? Change their name? Release any recordings with Michael? Get a new singer? Have a tribute concert for Michael? Or even talk to the media sharing their feelings and thoughts on Michael’s passing. All of these questions and a whole lot more are examined and discussed in-depth, so sit back and deep dive with us on INXS: Access all Areas Episode 169.

11/21/2023
It’s that unfortunate time of the year where we pause, commiserate and commemorate the passing of Michael Kelland Hutchence. Iconic singer, loyal band mate, friend, father and idol to many. Unlike other years, our anthology podcast has caught up with the 1997 period and as difficult as it is for us and our loyal listeners, we need to recount the events that preceded and proceeded that fateful day. We do so with compassion, earnestness, regret and heartfelt sadness, but importantly stay on point with facts not solacious innuendo or clickbait. Importantly, we release this episode on the exact day some 26 years later and hope that talking about Michael’s loss does some good for those struggling to reconcile this tragic event. There weren’t many men's support initiatives or mental health awareness and wellbeing programs back in 1997. So we hope that for anyone struggling in their own day to day world, you seek the necessary assistance.

Interestingly, we take a deep dive with both Shaun and Scott into the magic of early synth soundscapes of the emerging 1980’s, highlighting Gary Numan, Simple Minds, Icehouse, Human League and Kraftwerk. The duo’s love for INXS shines through as we dive deep on the bands complex and versatile sonics and legendary vocal phrasing of Michael. Their passion and respect comes through.
