A Bastard Like Me: Paul Kelly on the release of album #24 FBi Radio

  • Paul Kelly :: Interview and Performance on Arvos

Bona fide songwriting royalty Paul Kelly dropped in on Arvos to talk with Grace (who was totally keeping it together btw) about 19th Century poetry, putting words first and his new album Nature.

Over four decades and across 24 albums, a little known artist by the name of Paul Kelly, toiling in obscurity, has penned tunes on topics ranging from interstate bus trips to recipes for gravy. His most recent offering Nature truly takes the Australian legend back to his roots breathing fresh air into the words of 19th century poets whilst also finding new inspiration in the world around him.

A lot of songs for Nature were written around the same time as the songs for the last record, over the last three or four years When I went to look at the titles of some of the songs, there was Little Wolf and Seagulls Of Seattle and Morning Storm and so I thought, well maybe I should just call the record Nature.

Hear the full interview up top, where Kelly chats about the one poet he was afraid to put music to and hear the story behind and a stunning live rendition of A Bastard Like Me from Nature.

 

WHO: Paul Kelly
WHAT: Making Gravy Tour
WHERE: The Domain, Sydney
WHEN: Sat 15 Dec, tickets here.

A major Aussie band has ruled out a Splendour In The Grass performance Tone Deaf

It feels like Splendour In The Grass was only yesterday, but the lineup speculations have already begun. One massive Australian act has already ruled out an appearance at the festival.

Sydney-bred EDM superstars RFS DU SOL have confirmed that they will not be appearing at the Byron Bay festival.

The band recently hosted an Instagram Q&A, in which a fan asked whether they could expect an appearance at Splendour. RFS confirmed that they wouldnt be featured on this years lineup, but hinted that Aussie shows are in the works for Summer.

Sydney producer CLYPSOs eclectic style is the sound of summer Tone Deaf

Rekorderlig Sauna Sounds are all about embracing the unique, quirky and innovative together, were presenting some of countrys most trailblazing up and comers, getting them sweaty and ready to show off what makes them so special. 

Sydney producer CLYPSO is one of the more vibrant artists to emerge in the last year or so, the kind of artist who has been impossible to ignore. Crafting infectiously catchy, tropical electronica, the musician draws in equal measure from glitchy synths, grimy basslines, and afropunk-influenced beats.

There have been frequent comparisons to the likes of M.I.A. and Santigold since she began to catch peoples attention, but theres something notably distinctive to the music CLYPSO is making too.

With all this in mind, one might be surprised to learn that a young CLYPSO was first compelled to make music by way of theatrical acrobatics. As a kid, I would always play keyboards: my mum got me into that. But I think the first thing I thought I really wanted to write music was when my mum brought me to a Cirque du Soleil show, and I was just looking at the band the entire time.

I thought they were the coolest thing ever, composing for acrobats; it was just such an eclectic sound that I really love. Theyve got the band to the side and its so great to see that happening; its instruments that as a kid you dont really know of  bongos and middle eastern drums.

Apart from that formative experience, CLYPSO says many of the elements that characterize her distinctive sound are drawn from a more subconscious level, and shes influenced by the kind of sounds she was exposed to as a young person. Its all things Ive heard for many years, that have just seeped into my whole entire being. From my experiences growing up, its just become a part of the fabric.

Youth is, of course, a particularly impressionable time for ones musical framework to develop, and thats certainly true in CLYPSOs case. [When youre young] you link music with an experience or a feeling, and thats really the main thing for me. Its a vibe, she explains.

What might be a little surprising when one first hears her music, is that a lot of it has been carefully written with live reproduction in mind. Theres a kind of frenetic energy underlying tracks like YOLO and Pop Roll Flow that makes them feel almost purpose-made for the dance floor.

100 per cent, thats exactly right, she says. Im always thinking about the performance side of things; I think thats a huge thing for me. When I go to shows I just really want to be taken somewhere else, I just want to be immersed, so Ive always had that in mind. I suppose I just think about what I would enjoy, what I would bop to.

Speaking of bops, CLYPSO recently performed a very interesting litt...

Arts Wednesday 17 October 2018 89.7 Eastside FM

This week Ed Lippmann returns at 10:40 am for a new series of Sydney By Design, entitled Technology and Architecture. In the first episode, Ed gives a broad historical sweep of major advances, which will be the subjects of episodes in the coming weeks.

My special guest at 11:00 am is master paint maker, David Coles. His recently published book, Chromatopia, is an illustrated history of colour and in our conversation, we talked about how pigments become dyes, which become paints. And some of those stories are deadly!

Music is all about colour.

Do join me.

Tony Thomas is on fire! "IndyWatch Feed Sydney"

Call 000, call the fire brigade, no call Connor Court and order a copy or two of his latest book on growing up a generation or two ago in the Deep West. Order the other one as well!

He is on fire in The Spectator lately as well, in the current edition it is Marxist education in the schools. He encountered Marxism early when he was in the Young Pioneers and travelled to Sydney for a significant youth festival. The tireless cadres were at work and now we are where we are. Surprised?

Actually there was resistance, check out the archive of Quadrant. And the stirring (partial) success of Santamaria and colleagues versus the communists in the trade unions.

NSW police officer convicted for sexually assaulting Defqon.1 patron Tone Deaf

A New South Wales police officer has been sentenced today for sexually assaulting a patron at Sydneys Defqon.1 festival last year.

While Defqon.1 attracted controversy recently following a handful of drug-related deaths, its an incident from last years festivities that has made headlines today.

As the Sydney Morning Herald reports, Constable Mitchell James Willey has been sentenced to a two-year community corrections order after pleading guilty to indecent assault.

The incident in question occurred in September of 2017 when Willey, who was off-duty at the time, approached a woman and grabbed her by the vagina. Several police officers were reportedly following Willey at the time, who was apprehended by a sergeant after the woman reportedly screamed dont touch me.

In the Penrith Local Court earlier today, magistrate Geoff Hiatt explained that he did not belief Constable Willey to be genuinely remorseful for his actions.

While Willeys lawyer Ben Clark claimed that the incident was a moment of absolute madness, prosecutor Kate Owens noted that the public has grown far too tired of such behaviour.

There is quite a vocal protest going on in this state and elsewhere, Owens explained. She was randomly attacked by this offender.

Women in particular should be able to attend these events and go about their day-to-day lives without fear of this kind of interference with their body.

While Mr Clark claimed that this is not #MeToo, and that his client is not being sentenced for being Harvey Weinstein, Constable Willey was nonetheless suspended for his actions, with his future in the NSW police force currently unclear.

Just last month, NSW Premier Gladys Berejiklian outlined her desire to shut down the Defqon.1 festival, citing a spate of drug-related deaths as the reasoning for her decision.

I never want to see this event held in Sydney or New South Wales ever again we will do everything we can to shut this down, she explained in a press conference.

I understand there were some deaths in the past, but to have at least two on one night when every assurance was given to those attending that it was a safe event,...

  Melbourne musician Ayleen OHanlon has a brand new single out now via the good folk at Blind Date Records. Good As Gold is a change-up for Ayleen, more country rock than her previous folk leanings.
