Welcome to this weeks NEVER HEARD THAT.

Sometimes a song comes your way that unexpectedly weaves a special place in your soul.

You were not necessarily looking for it, but there it was. And what a wonderful, beautiful thing that is.

This is what occurred me to when I happened to see a video for the song The Sound by Australian band RUMANASTONE. Goosebumps back then and Goosebumps still now.

I hope you enjoy this weeks NEVER HEARD THAT.

Cheers, Andrew Muecke

    I am 42 years old and haven’t heard Rumanastone for many years. A few weeks ago I remembered the song “She”. It was purchased for me and has been living in my CD player ever since. It is the most beautiful song that I wasn’t ever looking for. Just listening to the radio to hear it that one time. It was really nice to read what you wrote two years ago.

      Hi daynakv79@gmail.com,

      Thanks very much for making contact and your kind words.

      Yes, the power of music – that immediate connection to a song can come through so many different ways – it is a beautiful thing that makes our lives so much richer!

      Cheers Andrew

    I joined a FB page celebrating Aussie 90’s music last year and came upon Rumanastone. The Sound is a indie gem that should have gotten widespread appeal. Quite unfair I had to discover them 20 years late.
    Thanks for your small podcast

    I’m off to track down the album.. 🙂

      Thanks very much for your message Ruben. It has always remained a mystery to me as to why some bands seem to get industry support versus those that don’t – particularly here in Australia. It makes all the difference when you get that support. I too feel that Rumanastone deserved more – and also believe that The Sound is a particularly beautiful and emotive track. This podcast was my small way of trying to spread the word – and that even if only a few people pick that up from the podcast, then I would still feel like I have done a good thing!
