The Doctor is in.
On this episode of the Scenery Ryan and Alex were joined by Negroni enthusiast Ianto Ware, and Nina Jerebica of Suzi Wong’s Room. The tireless Ryan Winter also had a chat with Daniel Randell, the general manager of Music SA about a proposed music training centre to be built in the Adelaide CBD.
We once again return to a topic of concern for the Scenery; liquor licensing. The eternal crusader Ianto Ware returns to regale us with the trials and tribulations of Hindmarsh cafebar/lounge Suzi Wong’s Room. On previous episodes of the Scenery, Ianto has discussed the lack of a liquor license classification for a small bar/venue. This lack of classification is currently preventing a host of small venue operators the relative ease of realising their goal compared with other states, not to mention it being an effective wall in the way of this city reaching it’s potential vibrancy. In order to give an actual example of the frustrations experienced by small venue operators, Ianto invited Nina Jerebica, manager of Suzi Wong’s Room, onto the show to talk about her experiences with liquor licensing, and the interpretation of licensing rules by licensing enforcement.
Music SA, headed by Daniel Randell, has proposed that a vacant three story building on Currie St become Australia’s first Music Industry Training Centre. It would provide courses for people wanting to work in the music industry, including promoters, artist and event managers, sound technicians, festival organisers and road crew. Importantly it would also re-enforce Adelaide and South Australia’s somewhat under resourced music industry. Ryan Winter catches up with Daniel Randell to talk about the project.
This week’s feature track comes from a split 7″ that we bought from Format before the show between Nothing People and Scenery favorites Mondo Phase Band. We played ‘Horseshoe’ from Mondo Phase Band which you can hear here and our feature track ‘Pride’ by Nothing People. If you don’t like fuzz then I can not help you.
