11/28/2021
Episode 81: Michael Hutchence, My Friend In the week we remember and reminisce about the life of Michael Kelland Hutchence, it only seems appropriate that we hear from the man who arguably was closest to him from an artistic point of view, Andrew Farriss. We thank Andrew for his preparedness to be vulnerable and share intimate and revealing memories of the times he and Michael penned some of the most stunning melodies and hooks together. We cover lyrics, Michael’s cosmopolitan and cultural...

Thanksgiving 2021: INXS, An American Love Affair Outside their humble Australian origins, the USA was the first country to embrace the new wave dance/rock sensibilities of INXS. 1983 was a seminal year for the band as they toiled long and hard from coast to coast, imparting their immense live playing abilities for all to see. With MTV taking off and “The One Thing” gaining a Top 30 position on the famed Billboard Hot 100 charts, INXS were proving themselves to be more than a fad new-wave...

The epic sounds, soaring vocals, and lyrical refrain have made the song rock n roll royalty with it inspiring Bruce Springsteen, No Doubt, Everclear, Grinspoon, AFI, and The Audreys amidst many to cover it. A song that still sounds vital and fresh thanks largely to Mark Opitz's timeless production. A song that still...
