Just on Spec 7th December 2010: Best Coast, Meredith Music festival and music quotes

December 6, 2010

Welcome again to another Just on Spec Radio show.

Summer has hit the top of the south big time over the last couple of weeks. Dust off your favourite togs and prepare your toes to be dipped in various beaches and rivers. So if you’re looking for a soundtrack of the 2011/11 summer I reckon you must not go past the debut release from Best Coast called “Crazy for you”. Lazy/dreamy songs about love, sun and being happy, played with a sonic fuzz and

a beach boy pop sensibility that make idea beach stereo fodder. Best Coast originate from LA

California and made up of the haunting voice of  Bethany Cosentino and multi-instrumentalist Bobb Bruno. They also seem to be obsessed with cats.  Don’t be surprised if these

guys make many top 10 albums of 2010.  Listen here

Meredith Music festival hits the small golden plains country town in Victoria this weekend. Some may say the worlds best festival. There are rumors of a surprise act…….Locusts. Yep Victoria is being it by biblical locust swarms and they may wanna get their rocks off in the Supernatural Amphitheatre that makes the setting of Meredith. Also, going along witht he biblical nature, rain and mud is predicted.  I predict

some of the highlights will be…well of course Dirty Three, they have played 3 times before an have not put in a bad set. I reckon Sunday arvo listening to “Those Darlins” would be toe tapping country trash goodness. I have always wanted to see the Psychobilly sounds of Reverend Horton Heat live and headlining the Friday night I reckon they will be awesome. Other Acts to be caught are Jeff the Brotherhood, a sing along with Neil Finn (just like last year’s Paul

Kelly set) Sharon Jones and the Fall. Make sure you stay around after all the dirty and dodgy nakedness that is the Gift to see Hoss.

Leaving you with some great music quotes

Dirty Three-5

“The music business is a cruel and shallow money trench, a long plastic hallway where thieves and pimps run free, and good men die like dogs. There’s also a negative side …” Hunter S. Thompson

“Most rock journalism is people who can’t write, interviewing people who can’t talk, for people who can’t read.” Frank Zappa

“Every time I see Bono in those big fly glasses and tight leather pants I just can’t hack it. I can’t see that as solving the world’s problems. He’s crushing his testicles in tight trousers for world peace.” Johnny Rotten on U2’s Bono.
