Justin Heazlewood makes the Hottest 100

By johnboy 26 January 2011 21

One time Canberran Justin Heazlewood (aka The Bedroom Philosopher) just got played as part of the TripleJ Hottest 100.

This is his effort “Northcote (So Hungover)”.

Any other Canberrans making the list this year?

f.. me. I am not young but Easybeatsand Lobby Lloyd. What time is lights out in the nursing home crazy dudes?

Here’s an amazingly innovative new concept for you! The process of recording music allows you listen to, and develop an appreciation for, music that was performed when you were very young, even before you were born!!! You can actually listen to music that was written hundreds of years ago if you wish!! It’s sorta like the audio equivalent of reading an old book! It’s a wild idea, I know, but you should check it out!

When I was a kid in the ’70s the predominant musical form on commercial radio was disco crap like KC and the Sunshine Band. I was young and stupid, but not that stupid, so I looked around for something better and discovered American blues (Lightnin’ Hopkins), Australian blues based pub rock (Angels), British blues bands (Early Fleetwood Mac), American punk( Richard Hell and the Voidoids), British Punk (the Pistols), reggae (Bob Marley, rest his soul), even classical (Pachelbel’s Canon in D…I know, I know)….

My point, after all that bullshit, is that my age and the age of the music I enjoy are not necessarily correlated.

My point in the original post was to provide a very brief list (forgot Billy and the Aztecs, dammit) of great Australian bands, and contrast them to the Bedroom Philosopher thing, which I thought was pretty poor all around. I know it was a satire, but I thought it wasn’t great satire, and not very musically valid either.

Grumble bloody mutter mutter…Nurse, where’s my medication…How do I turn off this electrical light thing…I can’t find the wick….what did I do with the chamber pot…everyone here seems to be a crazy dude…mutter mutter..
