New Weird Australia Podcast #10. Danger Beach – Live-to-air Performance & Interview

From 2009-2012, the New Weird Australia Podcast featured selected interviews and in-studio recordings from my FBi radio show, as well as live performances from events, video interviews and more.

As far as new, weird Australian music goes, Canberra fast established itself as 2010’s most interesting city – and in this July 2010 podcast I talk to one of its then emerging artists, DANGER BEACH. Leaving behind the lo-fi punk noise of his ASSASSINS 88 project, DANGER BEACH explores the ground between noise and pop, attempting to “write songs that your girlfriend would listen to”. As well as chatting about his upcoming gigs and releases, DANGER BEACH played four live tracks in the studio: ‘Lakes’ (featuring TV Colours on guest vocals), an Elvis cover ‘Blue Moon’, ‘Apollo’ and ‘Safe Home’
