Ep 171: Custard

Custard

Custard

Recorded by Branko Cosic
Mixed by Branko Cosic
Recorded at Woolly Mammoth, Brisbane, 25th June 2016.

If you’ve ever looked down at your feet while walking up Brunswick street in Brisbane’s Fortitude Valley, you might have a seen a gold plaque on the walkway with the word ‘Custard’ written across it. Although Custard as a food is delicious, that plaque is actually for the iconic indie pop band that burst out of Brisbane in the 90’s.

Their first release came in 1990 with a 4 track EP Vinyl titled Rockfish Anna. Throughout the remainder of the 90’s they managed to release 4 albums, Starting off with Wahooti Fandango in 1994, Wisenheimer in ’95, We Have The Technology in ’97 and seeing out the decade with Loverama in ‘99, they became a well oiled touring machine, covering Australia and U.S.A extensively as their popularity increased with each release. Their sound is the perfect encapsulation of adolescence, shifting from down tempo lazy tunes, to high energy short, fast bursts of punk that is all delivered with a razor sharp sense of humour.

After an extensive hiatus starting in 1999, Custard released their first album in 16 years titled ‘Come Back, All Is Forgiven’ proving to the world that they still have their strong songwriting skills, and most important of all, their sense of humour.

Harmony

In this special episode of Live Delay, as usual, we have some exceptional live performances to showcase, including Melbourne’s HARMONY, who Live Delay recorded when the band visited Brisbane in February 2013. Also joining Harmony on the bill is former Go Betweens members’ ADELE & GLENN, as well as Brisbane song crafter extraordinaire, BEN SALTER.

HARMONY
Recorded by Darragh Murray and Branko Cosic.
Mixed by Branko Cosic.
Recorded at the Alhambra Bar, Brisbane.

A melange of souful rock and roll and gallow blues, Harmony are one of the best bands going in Australia today. Featuring the powerful voice and guitar of Tom Lyncoln (The Nation Blue), drummer Alex Kastaniotis, and bassist Jon Chapple (ex-Mclusky), Harmony also throw in a three-part gospel choir for good measure which gives their sound even more transcendental dynamics.

Recently, They’ve followed up their critically acclaimed self-titled debut with a solid 7 inch release of ‘Do Me A Favour’ in early 2013, with their second record due to be released sometime very soon. Until then you can enjoy this exclusive live set from the band, featuring six excellent songs.

ADELE & GLENN
Recorded by John Robinson for BEAU FM.
Mixed by Matt Dever.

Sydney duo Adele Pickvance & Glenn Thompson are well known for their participation in the second coming of The Go Betweens in the early 2000s. Thompson also played drums for the beloved Custard during the late 1990s. But they’re also an excellent duo in their own right, playing a unique brand of folky-pop music. They released a well-received LP in 2012 called ‘Carrington Street’ but this live set comes from their 2012 appearance at the Big Sound conference in Brisbane.

BEN SALTER
Recorded by John Robinson for BEAU FM.
Mixed by Matt Dever.

The multitalented Ben Salter is well known in the contemporary Australian musical landscape – cutting his teeth with the hard rocking Giants of Science while exercising his folkier alt-country moods via The Gin Club. He also went solo, releasing a critically acclaimed record – The Cat back in August 2011.

He’s a man with a distinctly powerful voice and a sly charisma that shines on his songs. The set we feature today on Live Delay comes from Big Sound in Brisbane in 2011
