The feed, for podcatching software, is here. iTunes users can just search the iTunes Music Store for “canberra” (and look through the sparse pickings for “Insatiable Banalities”), or, if the mood takes you “insatiable”.
(Incidentally if the existing iTunes users could switch over to the music store feed it’d really help us out)
KandyA’s summary for the curous but audibly challenged follows:
Jimboots, Johnboy Gertrude and KandyA are joined by Potsy and Damian of local Canberra outfit, Hashemoto, http://www.abc.net.au/triplej/ozmusicmonth/s990528.htm and their charming Maton valve amp (in lieu of the rest of the band, who are either lazy or in parts unknown. or Brisbane.)
Messers Webber and Flannagan have a musical history extending back into the 80s, including most recently TrouserTrouser. Which is a strangeÂ band nameÂ given Potsy hasn’t worn trousers for some time (No Pants Potsy!) (possibly thence the change of name?)Â
The Hashemoto boys discuss their songwriting sore points, and a bit about their performing past: disco revival on rollerskates anyone?
Damian cites the genesis of his musical career as singing ‘im going to runter you’ over and over.
Despite their fave ever gig together being performed without amps, precariously at the pot-belly bar in Belconnen, the lads abhor the ‘acoustic’ tag, and the life that goes with it.
We discuss the nudist who enflames himself whilst trying to exterminate a spider, but this turns into another Jimboots nudie rant. (surprise, or the complete lack of it)
For some banal reason we discus Nth Carolina Doms & Subs. (John-boy seems to know a bit too much about all this…) castration without malice, truth, crime or fiction?
