On the homefront, you can find Children Collide guest programming ABC1's rage on Saturday night while May 19 is The Temper Trap and May 26 features Gang Of Four in the hot seat/couch.  Coming up soonish on rage are Kate Miller-Heidke, Dead Letter Circus and Justice.

This week, the Chit Chat-narrated show explores London with the likes of Florence Welch, Kaiser Chiefs and Sex Pistols' Steve Jones. Last week's New York ep was surface-scraping but fun, and worth hunting down for Marky Ramone's dis of The Strokes.
