Guestses (11:33 pm)

So, as I mentioned on the show on Sunday night, next Sunday (the 5th of March) I’ll be in Adelaide, playing at the Fringe with FourPlay. So once again Shannon O’Neill has kindly agreed to step in and fill the slot, and this time he’ll be ably assisted by Renae Mason.
Please welcome them to the 10pm-1am Sunday slot for one week :) and I’ll be back on the 12th of March.

Lots of new stuff tonight, as well as a visit from Dave Toecutter with an awesome live set and samplers from his new album (launched next Saturday – check his website for details) in the middle there… Great to have a few new Australian releases here, like Because of Ghosts‘s compilation of releases, and new self-released stuff from ddsot (guitar rocker goes electronic) and 4 Layers of 9 (uncategorisable weirdness)…
