We've got something a little special here, folks. This podcast is kind of an addendum to our last podcast about The Axeman's Jazz by The Beasts of Bourbon. We were lucky enough to be able to sit down with manager/promoter/music industry guy Roger Grierson, who was intimately involved in the making of the record and the management of The Beasts from that time. We had a chat to try and get behind a few more of the stories and details surrounding the band and the recording. Enjoy!
This episode focuses on a seminal (there's that word again) album in Australian Indie Rock history - The Beasts of Bourbon's debut record The Axeman's Jazz from 1984. Featuring the talents of Tex Perkins, Kim Salmon, Spencer P. Jones, James Baker, and Boris Sudjovic, and engineered by Tony Cohen, this album's legend has only grown since its release. Listen to Rohan and Chris be inspired, be amazed, revel in the folklore of Australian Rock'n'Roll, and have a good time in the process.
In this episode, Rohan and Chris discuss The Sundays' 1990 album Reading, Writing And Arithmetic. Chris talks a lot about how time, place and personal feelings influence the way we listen to or appreciate music, and Rohan has a thing or two to say about it as well.
In this episode of The Plough, Chris feels a hint of nostalgia and Rohan tells us what he really thinks when they discuss The Go-Betweens 1984 effort, Spring Hill Fair.
Rohan and Chris discuss the great Scott Walker album 'Scott 4', originally released in 1969.
