When the last New Weird Australia radio show aired on FBi Radio a few weeks back, Oscar Key Sung closed proceedings with the first live performance of a new song, “It’s Gone”. A fitting way to end the chapter.
From Oscar: “This was the first live performance of this song. Done to a stripped back instrumental. For the last New Weird Australia radio show on Fbi 26th July 2012 at about 11pm presented by Stu Buchanan. Thank you to Stu Buchanan for having me, Jon Watts for mixing the effects, and Elliott Lauren for Filming.”
After a three-year run, this week sees the final FBi broadcast for New Weird Australia, which is moving to a weekly Podcast format as of next month. To celebrate the last live show, I will be joined in the studio by Melbourne artist OSCAR SLORACH-THORN (from OSCAR & MARTIN); HENSEN (from SEEKAE and CLIQUES); improvisor, musician and sound artist JONATHAN WATTS and Canberra-based producer SHISD.
Expect a mixture of live performances, mini-mixes and random debate, as well as the customary smashing of a few champagnes bottles as New Weird Australia sets sail for new waters. Tune in on Thursday 26th July at 9pm – live in Sydney on 94.5FM or stream online at www.fbiradio.com
