12/16/2021
After 18 months of deep-dive album reviews, from the self-titled debut to 1992’s Welcome to Wherever You Are, Bee and I took on the exciting task of compiling a Spotify playlist of “great deep cut” tracks that were never singles around the world. These songs in many ardent INXS fans’ opinions have been cited as favourites and as such, we wanted to highlight their “awesomeness”. More than just a singles band, INXS always treated each song’s addition to an album with the utmost diligence. No...

Epi 83 Richard Lowenstein: An Origin Story.

12/11/2021
Episode 83 Richard Lowenstein: An Original Story It’s often opined that Chris Murphy was the 7th member of INXS and, from a business point of view such sentiment, seemed more than legitimate. However, it’s without a doubt that artistically Richard Lowenstein was that 7th member. Joining the INXS family in Northern Queensland as that pasty, vitamin D-deprived emerging auteur in early 1984, he would go on to be an intrinsic and artistic tour-de-force shaping INXS’ ascent from hard-working,...

11/21/2021
It’s that time of year again where November 22nd hits our calendars. Originally synonymous with the date that JFK was assassinated in Dallas in 1963.
