I’ve just made a webshow called “Amateur Hour”. I was upset for a long time that Australia has no quality visual platform for musicians, comedians and artists to showcase and/or talk about their work. We are saturated with sports shows and reality tv, so I decided to stop complaining and do something about it. Together, myself and approximately 40 other volunteers have made an arts & culture show! It’s pretty good, even if I do say so myself.
How would you describe your sound in food form and why?
You’re definitely talking about something else. Well, most of the show was filmed in Melbourne, but we DID do a tiny bit of filming with members of The Hard-Ons in Sydney! Ray and Blackie are really hilarious and it was quite a treat to just push record and let them do their thing. I used to work in a record shop with Ray and he has the best stories and is also an amazing artist. I asked him to combine these 2 talents and the result was golden:
Where do you draw inspiration from?
