NHT084: CURVE – Left Of Mother

Hi,

Welcome to this weeks NEVER HEARD THAT.

Back in the 90s there was some really interesting blended music being produced that hadn’t been done before.

One style I found appealing was the joining of electronic music with rock. There are a few clever proponents of this style and certainly UK duo CURVE were one of those.

Led by vocalist TONI HALLIDAY and her powerhouse presence, CURVE definitely left a strong and lasting impression with their particular take on this new genre.

Have a listen and see what you think.

I hope you enjoy this weeks NEVER HEARD THAT.

Cheers, Andrew Muecke

NHT083: INXS – The Unloved One

Hi,

Welcome to this weeks NEVER HEARD THAT.

Australian band INXS will be well known to music followers. They achieved some very big things in the 80s and 90s throughout the world.

Only very few artists gain instant fame and fortune so there is often a little bit of a back catalogue that is built before that mega stardom kicks in.

And so it was with INXS.

These songs often get overlooked except by the real fan.

Todays feature track is the B Side to one of their very first singles. There is a certain power to it and that must have been felt by MICHAEL HUTCHENCE and the band as they left it as an instrumental.

I hope you enjoy this weeks NEVER HEARD THAT.

NHT082: WILDBIRDS & PEACEDRUMS – Gold Digger

Hi,

Welcome to this weeks NEVER HEARD THAT.

If you are the sort of person who likes to go to music festivals, I wonder if you are like me?

I get just as excited about the possibility of seeing something unexpectedly special as I do of seeing some proven headliner.

And so it was when sitting down at WOMAD to see WILDBIRDS AND PEACEDRUMS play.

Drums, kettle drums and voice. That sounded interesting.

It sure was.

I hope you enjoy this weeks NEVER HEARD THAT.

NHT081: NOT DROWNING WAVING – Fishing Trawler

Welcome to this weeks NEVER HEARD THAT.

Sometimes I think it is important to question the meaning of success. In music that is perhaps seen by many as being measured in number one singles and albums.

That is probably fair enough but I think there is another barometer altogether which is equally important. Peer respect.

Although Australian band NOT DROWNING, WAVING did experience success in the traditional sense, they gained widespread respect from their peers in Australia and throughout the world. They combined full band ambient music with vocals. One of the very few to have done that, and they left many in awe.

Have a listen and see what you think.

I hope you enjoy this weeks NEVER HEARD THAT.
