In the name of the father, the son and an end to the ridiculous tax on beer, wine and spirits.
We decided to up the stakes on the latest Scenery, original airing date 16th of September. The traditional trio becomes a quartet as veterans Mateo, Alex and Louis are joined by newly elected On Dit editor, Radio Adelaide Thursday Ranger and, of course, Scenery Guy, Sebastian (not of Little Mermaid fame). It proved a great success, if success were measured by the amount of in studio laughter. This episode featured a chat with Collect Magazine editor/publisher Joshua Fanning, and then a bit after that there was another chat with good egg and artists Peter Drew.
Some might say ‘from the ashes of Merge…’, and we, in a way, just did, ‘…was born Collect Magazine’. Merge folded, to the dismay of many, in 2010. It wasn’t long before founding editor Joshua Fanning threw in with another band of merry men & women and formed Collect Magazine. Collect is a beautifully printed, written and curated magazine, with stories ranging from the birth and life of Adelaide suburb Elizabeth, to a story on a boutique brewery in Fort Collins, Colorado (both in issue 4). Alex had a chat with Josh about the magazine, the death of print and Adelaide culture.
This is the audio that originally appeared on the show. We will be uploading the full 20 odd minute feature within the week.
Peter Drew is a visual artist and an arts writer. You’ve more than likely seen his work, whether you know it or not. Discontent to simply be confined to the studio or the gallery, Peter Drew has taken to the streets, postering, painting and stenciling his way through the grey buff of Adelaide and the world. Wally caught up with Peter to have a chat about the street art element of his work.
This week’s featured track comes from Brisbane band Tiny Spiders. We have Seb to thank for this slice of Australian punk, and he has the t-shirt to prove it. Tiny Spiders are a two piece who don’t mind a little noise, a little fuzz and some nice vocals sugared over the top. They’ve got themselves a pretty video, we like things pretty right. We also like beards and girls playing guitar, it’s got that too!
Alex, Mateo, Louis & Seb
