Epi 106: Back in Time Series: INXS, Rocking the Royals in 1985

5/22/2022
INXS: Access All Areas has largely taken a chronological deep dive over the last two years. However, today we are taking a “Marty McFly” trip back in the “DeLorean” and breaking from convention. As such, we travel back to November 4th, 1985, when INXS led a swathe of Australian talent by headlining the Charles & Diana concert: “Rocking the Royals”. Situated in Melbourne, Victoria, whereby the state was celebrating its 150th anniversary, The Arts Centre gig became the most hotly-contested...

4/23/2022
Episode 103: The Making of FMDH, Part One In the first of our two-part deep dive with famed international producer Mark Opitz, we tackle the actual making of Full Moon, Dirty Hearts on the Italian island oasis (whoops!) of Capri and aim to put you right in the time period. Mark Opitz defines in episode 103 of INXS: Access All Areas that the role of the producer is akin to the director of the movie: guiding the engineers to follow his time-honored practices in getting the sounds and sonics of...

Epi 102: INXS’s Full Moon, Dirty Hearts: Album Review

4/17/2022
----more---- Full Moon, Dirty Hearts (November 1993) was the fastest album release (only 15 months since Welcome…) since the band’s second album Underneath the Colours in 1981. Too much product too soon was the record label’s thoughts, and as such, this poorly-promoted release suffered commercially after 1992’s critically-acclaimed Welcome to Wherever You Are. That aside, Full Moon, Dirty Hearts was a versatile, hook-laden album with more right- and left-turn sounds and sonics than a “Rome...

Darren also shares...

Epi 98: R.I.P. Shane Warne, from your mates INXS

3/12/2022
It’s with a heavy heart that the world mourns the loss of Australia’s answer to Michael Jordan or Babe Ruth. Cricketer Shane Keith Warne (passed away on Friday, March 4th from a sudden heart attack at the age of only 52 in Thailand where he was holidaying at the time). With 708 wickets in the difficult art of leg-spin bowling, Shane managed to make the long-forgotten art of leg-spin bowling sexy again... so much so that Elton John and Mick Jagger wanted to be him and Ed Sheeran, Roger...

Epi 97: INXS Song Deep Dive: Never Tear Us Apart

3/3/2022
With the final INXS track in Song Week upon us, we culminate with Never Tear Us Apart, a track that has grown from a beautiful ballad to truly iconic status. Ensuring a fourth consecutive top 10 from album KICK, Never Tear Us Apart is an alternative sounding Fats Domino-inspired waltz transformed into a beautiful, lush orchestral masterpiece. Soaring the charts globally, this ballad never wastes a note, lyric, or moment, and still, 35 years later produces spine tingles and heart flutters....

Epi 95: INXS Song Deep Dive: What You Need

3/1/2022
Well, folks, we are up and running in “Song Week” as we deep dive into the third groundbreaking and pivotal song that proved to be a shapeshifter for INXS. Today it’s 1985’s “What you Need” from the album Listen like Thieves. A song that nearly never came to fruition if not for both Chris Thomas’ insistent ask for “one more song” with the hit-making scope and the band’s preparedness to polish up an old demo. With little time, Michael and Andrew came up with the lyrics, the band rehearsed and...

Epi 94: INXS Song Deep Dive: The One Thing

2/28/2022
Episode 94: INXS Song Deep Dive: The One Thing Second up in our celebration of INXS song week is 1982’s The One Thing, a track that might be argued was the most significant musical leap and audience reaching of their careers. With shrewd management by Chris Murphy, INXS had Mark Opitz now at the helm who had the ability to bring out that “big INXS sound” for the first time. With their first top 15 hits in Australia roaring through the airwaves, it set up Shabooh Shoobah for 12 months of Top...

BREAKING NEWS: “Rock n Roll Hall of Fame snub leads to fan revolt”! In an episode not to be missed, INXS: Access all Areas brings to you this “special edition, not to be missed” episode attacking the criminal omission of INXS off the latest 17 artist ballot that was released last weekend. With such “non-rock n roll” artists like Dionne Warwick, Dolly Parton and Lionel Richie making the ballot, this concept of recognizing this institution is sadly becoming a modern-day exercise in woke,...

Episode 89: Happy Straya Day, INXS and Fans January 26th is Australia Day, and it’s with patriotic pride we take listeners back in time when this freshman band of brothers blasted out of the blocks with a gunslinging swagger to take on the Australian music scene. Full of passion and pride, INXS were proud of their Aussie heritage but never made it a cringey marketing ploy unlike their contemporaries (hello, Men at Work!). So, this week Bee and I pay tribute to the 1977-86 period of INXS’...

Episode 88: Happy 62nd Birthday Michael Hutchence C’mon INXS fans! Let’s take heed from Andrew Farriss, who recently on our podcast urged all fans to celebrate Michael’s birthday rather than commiserate his passing. So, with January 22nd upon us, that’s what we are going to do. Michael Kelland Hutchence, born in 1960 Sydney to Patricia Glassop and Kell Hutchence, grew up to be one of the most charismatic frontmen of his era and all time.
