Live Delay nominated in 2013 CBAA Awards

cbaa_logoIt’s pretty chuff-worthy even to get nominated, and we’re chuffing away here in the Live Delay towers after we received a telegram announcing the shows nomination for best new music show in 2013.

The show is up against some stiff competition but it’s a testament to all the hours that go into bringing all this live music to the radiowaves each week – most which goes on behind the scenes by community radio volunteers.

We’ll have the announcement of the winner at the CBAA annual conference in mid-November so here is hoping. But until then – chuff away!

Episode 17: Harmony; Adele & Glenn; Ben Salter

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.

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.

Find out more about Harmony.

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.

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

Episode 13: Edward Guglielmino; Winter Solstice

Edward Guglielmino

Edward Guglielmino

Woah! Episode 13 of Live Delay goes against the grain and you’re in for a fortunate set of live music.

Today we feature two sets – this time both from BrisVegas. First up is a couple of songs from local pop idol and unabashed Michael Jackson fan, EDWARD GUGLIELMINO. We then travel back in space and time to catch WINTER SOLSTICE playing in the Chinatown Mall in Fortitude Valley circa 2011.

Recorded by Anthony Pink. Mixed by Matthew Redlich.
Recorded at Cori’s House, 2010.

Know around the place as Ed G, Ed has been playing music around Brisbane for most of this century. Often described with terms such as “avant-garde pop”, he’s a rare breed. A musician with opinions and a biting sense of good-humoured cynicism.

He’s toured around the world and is regularly welcomed in cities like New York, Berlin and Hobart. He’s played with the likes of UK Songstress Kate Nash, and he great record called Sunshine State in 2012.

Today’s featured set predates all this, and we’re going back to the wilds of 2010 to catch Ed playing songs in someone’s backyard. Specifically, Cori’s backyard. Whereever that may be. It’s great, so make sure you catch it in full.

FEATURE INTERVIEW: Listen to the extended interview with Edward Guglielmino

Recorded and mixed by Sky Kirkham
Recorded at the 2011 4ZZZ Radiothon in the Chinatown Mall, Fortitude Valley, Brisbane

Now I’ll be the first to admit I hadn’t heard of Winter Solstice before someone plopped the live recordings down in front of me and ordered me to listen. I’m glad they did – because it’s really quite pleasant.

Winter Solstice are a four-piece alternative folk band who traverse a number of influences – including folk, jazz, classical music, pop and even metal. All topped off with harmonies – I love harmonies.

Made up of Ari, Rosie, Kez and Joy they’ve been going since about 2008, we managed to catch them performing in the Chinatown mall back in 2011 for 4ZZZ’s radiothon.

Episode 7: Tape/Off; The Horrortones; The Mouldy Lovers


Lucky seven! And Live Delay episode seven is going to be a really special event indeed. We bring you three great and very different Brisbane bands in their element – live on stage!

Set 1 recorded by Sky Kirkham and mixed by Branko Cosic.
Set 2 recorded by Murray Paas and mixed by Cameron Smith.

We bring you not one, but TWO sets from one of Brisbane’s loudest bands – Tape/Off. The foursome whose fondness of loud pavement-esque rock has with a twist has seen them etch out a unique identity within their hometown music scene over the past few years. They’re also pretty nice dudes. Set 1 features three songs recorded at The Primitive Room in Spring Hill, Brisbane, whereas Set 2 shows three different songs from a gig at The Zoo in late 2012.

Find out more about Tape/Off.

Recorded and mixed by Sky Kirkham, 2012.

We’re proud to present Brisbane’s very own supergroup – The Horrortones! Made up of members of Texas Tea, The Vegas Kings, The Giants of Science and many other prominent local bands, The Horrortones beat out the soulful sounds of the sixties in a way even alliteration can’t do justice. Frontman Pete Collins may actually sound like Wilson Pickett and the rest of the band sound like The Commitments but with added sexual organs (and organ). And we’ve got them live here on Live Delay! Grouse!

Find out more about The Horrortones.

Recorded and mixed by Sky Kirkham, 2011.

The Mouldy Lovers are a young and vibrant Brisbane gypsy instrumental band with a  wicked set of humour. They do a mad cover of the theme song from Tetris (unfortunately, not covered in this set) and have skills to pay multiple bills (not your rent however). Check out this neat live set we captured back in 2011 in this episode of Live Delay.
