Episode 102: Superstar; Mark Zian


Recorded by Josh Watson.
Mixed by Josh Watson.
Recorded at Black Bear Lodge, Brisbane. 19th October 2014.

Superstar is the duo of Keiran Hegarty and Esther Edquist, who have been playing under the name since 2007. After a string of tapes they released their debut record, A Toast To…, in 2013 on Bedroom Suck Records and it’s been one of the quieter hits on that label. In 2015 they’ll release their keenly anticipated second LP, Table For Tow which if this performance is anything to go by will sound even more luxurious than their first offering.

Recorded at The Bearded Lady, Brisbane. 20th November 2014.

You may know of him from one of his several monikers such as: I am Not A Nihilist, Scruples and Curlew. He was also the bassist for Brisbane band Knee Chin. Mark’s distinctive humour and his often pessimistic outlook on the mundane rat race of everyday life runs throughout his work, injecting his songs with a distinct personality. Curlew, his duo with sound and film artist Callum Wheeler, released their first album ‘Animal Urges’ in mid-November.
