In Australia, the band Cold Chsiel inspires either full blown adoration from those who grew up listening to them until today, or dismissiveness from those who only pay attention to the full blown hyena hysterics of lead singer Jim Barnes post-Chisel. In this episode of Love That Album, Jeff and Maurice discuss their two most popular albums East and Circus Animals. How did one follow up the other? How did the band dynamics change after East? What is the band's legacy? Whycan Jim Barnes attract thousands of people, when the man who wrote most of the Chisel songs he sang, only attract 50 to a pub gig?

Maurice and Jeff discuss in some depth why Get The Knack is a classic album, and should not be reviled by the shoe-gazing, too-cool-for-school, Nirvana-loving hipsters. Think about it - if My Sharona makes the Knack a one-hit-wonder, what does that say about Smells Like Teen Spirit? Simply put, Get The Knack is a hook-drenched rock and roll album about lust - isn't that the essence of rock and roll? Listen and be convinced.

So it's like this, folks. This episode was meant to be about Geoff Smith and I chewing the fat about John Hiatt's classic album "Meet The Family". During the editing process, I somehow "edited out" that entire section - with no backup. AAAARRRGGGHHHH!!!!. Fortunately, Geoff agreed to record that section of the show again, but the recording program did something weird to the audio rendering it unlistenable. I'm too slack to record it a third time, so what I have here is everything we recorded to that point - albums we've been listening to lately and a bit of Hiatt history. I hope that's enjoyable until we put out a full proper episode. All feedback to rrrkitchen@yahoo.com.au
