Welcome to episode 80 of Love That Album podcast.

Due to time commitments this month, I am using the opportunity to bring you a couple of old interviews from 2001 that I did during my time at a local public access station. I am extremely proud of these interviews and I hope you dig them.

On this episode, I am presenting a chat I had with one of my most favourite musicians ever, Bill Frisell. He is one of those few musicians whose style is instantly identifiable. Regardless of whether you’ve heard a particular tune or not, you KNOW it’s Frisell when you hear the music play. He’s known as a jazz and country player, but also as someone who loves sonic experiments. He’s been a session man for many (including Marianne Faithfull, Elvis Costello, and Ginger Baker), written the music for the Far Side animated series as well as for new scores for Buster Keaton films, and played with multiple ensembles of his own.

Since this interview was recorded, he’s recorded many more albums and has toured Australia (the question of a tour is brought up in the chat). In 2001 he put out two brilliant albums (including one with Elvin Jones, drummer for John Coltrane!!!!!) He was a charming and very humble interview subject. I loved having this chat, and I hope you dig it too.

Bruce Wooley and The Camera Club  is the focus of Eric Reanimator’s “Album I Love” segment. He talks about their album English Garden. “Who are they?” you ask. “Have they done anything I’d know?” Abso-bloody-lutely. Eric will reveal all.

It’s time for episode 18 of Love That Album: The Compilation Edition.

Now, Love That Album has not officially taken part in the Sleazy Summer project being run by many of our favourite podcasts in our community, but in the spirit of Sleazy Summer, Eric Reanimator want s to discuss a little bump and grind with you in the first half of the show. Remember when rock and roll was about sex and honking saxophones????? The compilers of the Sin Alley series of albums surely do. Sleaze doesn’t belong exclusively to the cinema….it belongs on your record player. This album gives us 50s tunes from the likes of Myron Lee and the Caddies, Tony Casanova, and the Frantics Four. Oh yeah, get out that table leg and a tub of margarine baby…..

For the second half, Eric discusses something a little less sleazy…or does he? We all know songs from the glam era from the likes of T-Rex, David Bowie and The Sweet. How about groups like Iron Virgin or The Plod? You will surely know Tartan Horde – trust me you do!!! Eric discusses the songs from these groups and many others on a compilation called Velvet Tinmine bringing you great but forgotten songs from the glam era.

I just wish to reiterate how grateful I am that Eric is a continuing part of Love That Album bringing his time and knowledge for us all to dig on. Thank you good sir.

Episode 79 of Love That Album is ready for your aural pleasure.

I am presenting a couple of episodes this month with interviews I did way back in 2001 while doing a summer fill-in on a local public access radio station in Melbourne. It was really exciting to get the opportunity to speak to a couple of musical titans in my listening development, and I think it was high time to present these to listeners of the podcast.

This time around, I am presenting my interview with American songwriter, musician, radio show presenter, and writer of a music-related film encyclopedia, Marshall Crenshaw. Over 35 years, he has given the pop loving world a bunch of great records. Most recently he has been doing a show on WFUV called The Bottomless Pit and has released a series of crowd funded 10-inch 45 rpm records. This interview was recorded just prior to his release of his brilliant and reflective album What’s In The Bag. Have a listen and hear Marshall discuss his thoughts on his recorded legacy, playing John Lennon and Buddy Holly, and the Lenny Kaye “Nuggets” albums.

Eric Reanimator presents his Album I Love segment discussing Swedish garage band The Strollers (I never knew Eric dug Swedish garage bands!!!) and their album Falling Right Down. The world needs more farfisa organs I say. The Strollers happily agree.
