    I've only got the 12" single. Used to have the LP but sold it for a zillion $ on eBay. Since been reissued, should hunt it down again but man you gotta watch these reiissues, theyre full of glitches and mastering fuckups. Whataver happened to test presses? Still have "Congregation", held up v.well
    was pretty shocked when they reunited couplenof years back and are still actually really great. The "Farm" album just picks up where they left off in 1987! Maybe even more raucous.

    The best I've heard from him was a covers album "I'll take care of you". Of course, I moranically sold it.

    re Nick Cave, hate to brag, but did I mention that up to a couple of years ago I had all 15 of his full lenght releases on LP? Hadnt really meant to do the whole collector thing just realized one day oh shit I've got the lot. However was so pissed off with the casiotone garbage plip plop of "Push the Sky Away" - the Will Ferrell impression of Neil Diamond that may as well have been Nuck - that I started selling them off. Some crits say Murder Ballads and let Love in were his best, iHomo it's the No More Shall We Part 2xLP. Fairly handily.

    Supersense Festival in Melbourne has announced a pretty amazing lineup over 3 days:

    Nazoranai (Haino/O'Malley/Ambarchi)
    The Ecstatic Music of Alice Coltrane
    Acid Mothers Temple
    Blonde Redhead
    Master Musicians of Jajouka
    JG Thirwell

    They're also bringing back Overground for it which was pretty epic back in 2011 when it was launched at Jazz Fest.

    It's essentially all the performers from the festival collaborating in various improv collectives.

    The last one featured Tatsuya Yoshida, Faust, Tim Berne, Ches Smith, Mary Halvorson, Charlemagne Palestine, Tony Conrad, Fabulous Diamonds, The Necks, and many others I can't remember.

    It seems like Melbourne festivals blew their wad in those first few years I lived down here and the lineups since have been weak.

    Spritualized are great. I've seen them live a few times.

    The best was part of the Vivid Festival in 2011 at the Sydney Opera House. They played Ladies and Gentlemen We Are Floating in Space in full with a choir and orchestra.

    It was amazing.

    just curious how big of a deal the GO-BETWEENS were in Aus back in the 80's? Especially in Brisbane. They seem to be flavour of the month in the free west right now, new doco out, feature articles in the Guardian, just checked allmusic.com and it says "Aus's best band ever". Woah. That is a lofty claim. I've only ever heard "Cattle and Cane" single but from what I've read the first 6 lp's are all solid gold. Damn they are expensive on discogs though. Even the Cattle and cane 7" starts at $20 with only Aus and UK pressings. This leads me to believe they flew well under the radar in Aus, with little impact outside of there and the UK, hence small pressing runs, hense supply and demand, hence market forces, hence now the lp's sell online for the big bucks. Please don't tell me their stuff is loitering around record shop cut-out bins all over Aus.

    ^^^ What Reg said, but they didn't really become a big deal at home until Forster and McLennan re-formed the band.

    16 Lovers Lane and Spring Hill Fair are two of my favourite albums, but to be honest they're unchallenging pop albums. You're pretty much spot on re: discogs because they were popular with critics in London and Sydney, but are now in high demand following their new wave of popularity amongst the same people that now occupy Paddington and West End.

    The Go-Betweens have had recent the press because former members Brown, Morrison, and Wilsteed have gotten back together to play 16 Lovers Lane at the Sydney Festival (I only noticed last night when lining up for an unrelated show). Interesting to see how they get on, given that Wilsteed and the rest of the band didn't play nicely way back when. Would also love to hear what Forster makes of all of this after Morrison and Brown declined to take part in the re-formed Go-Betweens.

    My boys introduced me to this over Christmas. Can't stop listening to it, really great music, not hard on the ears.

    Dan is the lead out of The Black Keys, this is his solo project. Apparently the most downloaded thing on the planet last year.

    Couldn't find a way to copy a link into this site, but copy and paste below into Google and you should find it.

    I'm probably raking over old ground here, but I do wonder what Pillock made/makes of This Is Serious Mum.

    Man. When Grinderman 2 was released, I couldn't stop listening to Palaces of Montezuma. Again, elegant with standard Nick Cave brooding - not necessarily pushing the envelope, but who turns to rock n roll for new sounds anymore?

    no idea really, late 80's?, dont recall them making much of a splash over our side of the deetch. sort of a quirky 80's Regurgitator/They Might be Giants thing?

    Late80s yes, stylistically not really. Listen to their albums Great Trucking of the Renaissance, or The Beasts of Suburban to get a good feel for them. For me their best stuff was pre 1995.
