I've recently been new music in an 80s new wave style by a band called New Neon.

Almost forgot about the show today. Great choice for The Church. Interesting tidbit I heard recently on another of their classics: Kilbey is not a fan of "The Unguarded Moment". Apparently thinks it's a bit trite. Oh to have the talent to be able to take that position :)

And, while it may be cliche 80s (okay, one song from it is), Starfish is still one of my favorite albums of the 80s.

Cocteau Twins vocalizations were... inspired by lyrics?

Sorry, couldn't resist. But I do enjoy them. One of the first albums I ever bought. And I love Aussie music (but most familiar with the late 90s-early 2000s)

Here in Austin, there have been weekly "80s night" and "retro rage" events at the dance clubs since like 90 or 91... I mean the paint wasn't even dry on the 80s before there were 80s themed events at the clubs.

Some of the biggest "80s songs" from those retro nights in the early 90s are now too cliche for the same events being held virtually in 2020 as the DJs go deeper into the back catalog.
 
2020-11-26 1:26:57 PM  
So you Americans know The Church? Did they ever have any hits in America?

we generally go pretty deep on this show; today's show is a bit of an outlier. but even on a show like today's we aren't going to be playing blue monday or people are people

The Alarm!  Best anthem band, not named U2, ever!

Green Day's entire catalog is based on stealing from The Alarm!

Yeah, that was on as I was typing. Was hoping you meant more than one more Aussie track. Ah well. I've got an entire box of Aussie indie CDs to console myself with...

I was sad to see that they got booed at the Benroya Hall a couple years ago.  I thought they were fine, but, man, people really wanted to see the Psychedelic Furs, I guess.

They sounded good, even if they were a little ho-hum in their live performance.  I honestly think that playing the "Reptile" last was a bad idea...  since, people thought the song was over, like twice, and I think that the audience just got tired of it.

By the way, the Psych Furs were absolutely STUNNING.  Their set was farking flawless!

aussie music gets a pretty regular runout on the show. off the top of my head, just recently we've played icehouse, hunters & collectors, and pseudo echo

They got booed here? I saw The Church at the old Fenix Underground, and it was a great show.

this is such a great album. total over the top 80's, but if you can get past 'i eat cannibals' (which i almost did not) it's got a few stellar tracks on it.
