Canberra’s longest running and least reliable podcast has re-imagined itself as a monthly affair and is therefore roughly on schedule thanks to diminished expectations.

Which means that in podcast number 111 you can enjoy the original contemporary country blues of the Wedded Bliss.

Track list:

    Close Enough for Rock and Roll. 12:03
    Saturday Evening Sinner, Sunday Morning Saint. 34:12
    Save Your Bitchin’ for the Old Folks Home. 51:54
    Broken Bird. 76:01
    Death Letter Blues. 80:32
    Swingin’ Arms Hotel. 90:23

For the devotees, the new podcast feed (meaning the old one is kaput) can be found at:


(So in iTunes you choose the “Advanced” tab, then “Subscribe to podcast” and bung the above address in to get it automatically instead of having to guess when the next instalment will arrive.)

Also Facebookers are encouraged to become fans of the podcast, which will sometimes get you bonus photos, plus a vicarious cool.

Loadedog, like time and tide, works to no mortal schedule and therefore despite the podcast being recorded as advance publicity for the Wedded Bliss’s CD launch we now present it to you half a week after the launch.

So here’s a quick wrap up of the night’s proceedings.

After assembling at All Bar Nun we crossed the road to the Polish White Eagle Club where we began to sample the dangerous array of very large bottles of high alcohol beer sold at very low prices. Large bottles of high alcohol Polish beer with ram’s skulls would probably be avoided by wiser men than I.

Hashemoto were at their transcendant best occupying the middle of the floor in low lighting and no amplification. As usual the audience responded with respectful silence and wild acclaim.

They were followed by local comedian Jay Sullivan who had a beautifully timed set. It started slow and when it finished had the audience splitting their sides. Particularly at the pre-lubricated table of bad men who were drinking the large bottles of high alcohol beer with ram’s skulls on them.

And then, with the audience well primed for merriment the Wedded Bliss opened the curtains on the big stage and the night took off. The crowd were up and dancing and it was with a great deal of sorrow that we all had to go home at the end.
