Album title? Taste The Sadness

Where did the title of your new album come from? It’s a remake of my 2003 party classic Taste The Radness. This is a take on that idea but from an adult’s perspective.

How many releases do you have now? 12 unreleased, nine cassettes, three compact disks, two digital downloads. 

How long did it take to write/record? 11 years in its conceptual stage, six months in its romantic stage, two weeks in the recording stage.

Was anything in particular inspiring you during the making? Suburban life, babies, romantic notions, the end of autumn, TABs, bunnings, drunks on electric scooters, deadshits, lost love, dead dreams, positive affirmations, connection to eternity, the warmth of mortality

What’s your favourite song on it? Maybe So Lonely my remake of On Heat. Transforming my dirtiest song into my most sentimental and heartbreaking.

Will you do anything differently next time? Of course, why repeat yourself unless you’re a deadshit or copying hot trends?  Be a unique sphere of your own heart. Delve into the magic of your dreams. Do it.

When and where is your launch/next gig? Friday 19 Sep at the Lansdowne for a dinner and show, with Justin Heazlewood.
