Epi 74 FAN CAMPAIGN: “Let’s get another number #1 INXS song”!

This episode may just be the most important one we have recorded since the inception of INXS: Access All Areas in May 2020. With a perpetual passion to see the band get rightfully inducted into the Rock n Roll Hall of Fame, we are also are only 12 months away from two significant milestones.
  1. The 30th anniversary of the “critically acclaimed” “Welcome to Wherever You Are” and
  2. The 25th anniversary of the incomparable Michael Hutchence sad passing.
As such, we are proud to launch a unique fan-led initiative whereby we are championing the “re-emergence” of the severely underrated song “Not Enough Time” from the aforementioned album.
A song that simply soars after its humble and understated opening, to a cacophony of musical, vocal and instrumental bliss. A crescendo in the spirit of Hey Jude and Stairway to Heaven, all under the gaze and sultry lyrics of Michael at his poetic peak!
 
So we deep dive into “the song” that shall be a catalyst for their induction, a true highlight of their back catalogue but most importantly a true homage piece to what simply was and always shall be: “the great Michael Hutchence”!
 
Love and peace,
Haydn & Bee

Epi 73 The Concert for LIFE!!!! (not strife)

The Concert for LIFE!!!! (not strife)

March 28th, 1992 was a pivotal day in the career of INXS.

With the tragic 1991 murder of groundbreaking doctor Victor Chang, the former Head of St Vincents Hospital in Sydney, the band spearheaded the Centennial Park gig with all profits going to the newly set up charity. With a huge local support artist list including Jenny Morris, Richard Clapton, Baby Animals, and Crowded House, over 70,000+ fans turned up to cheer away in what was uniquely a nonalcoholic gig and fairly priced at $21/head.

Opening up with the never heard before “Heaven Sent”, the band unearthed 4 new tracks from the forthcoming Welcome to Wherever you Are album. Michael preening across the stage in his magnificent white “Elvis Esque” jumpsuit, he had all of the fans in the palm of his hand. Unfortunately, the concert is more remembered for backstage fighting amongst the “suits” with infamous stories leaked to a bloodthirsty press looking for titillation versus altruism.

The subsequent media backlash directed towards the band was felt for many years to follow and unfortunately sullied or drowned out all of the artistic merits of subsequent INXS releases. Today the true facts are told as we remove the specter of gossip and gloss loss and celebrate the purity of what was “The Concert for LIFE”!

Also, we get to dive deep into those pivotal INXS songs that Kirk feels summed up the band plus uncover a surprising link between the MAXQ album and Kirk himself. Additionally, that famous trek from Sydney to Perth with Michael in the late 1970’s is revealed whilst Kirk discusses possible new music from the archives of “Vault Pengilly”.

Epi 71 The Kirk Pengilly Interview 2/3

It was a true joy hearing from Kirk last week and are excited to elaborate on his journey in the second part of our deep dive.

In this episode, we get to know the real Kirk away from the limelight of an international rock star. Humble community activist, health/vision ambassador, and devoted husband to wife Layne Beachley.

As a youngster moving from Victoria to New South Wales, the sliding door moment he met Tim in science class was a moment that changed Oz rock forever and Kirk’s insights into this are truly fascinating.

We elaborate on the famous Kirk diaries, the infamous stumble off stage (thanks Michael), and excitedly share patron questions direct to Kirk with excellent answers to follow!

So we trust you’ll enjoy Part 2 of Kirk Pengilly on INXS: Access all Areas and immerse yourself in the career and class of character that is “our Kirk”!

Love and peace

Episode 70: Kirk Pengilly Interview Part 1/3

Episode 70: Kirk Pengilly Interview Part 1 

 

It’s with true joy that Bee and I welcome the inimitable Kirk Pengilly to INXS: Access All Areas for what truly is a deep dive into INXS’ hardest working and versatile band member. Erudite, articulate, and with a faultless memory for detail, listeners shall be in-store for a unique trip down memory lane. 

 

With no topics off-limit, Kirk recounts those critical early days where he moved interstate and skipped a grade thus famously meeting Tim Farriss in science class. A sliding doors moment that led to millions of peoples lives changing globally, with the seeds of INXS born. 

 

Forever humble and gracious, we do reveal his iconic status in our very own “media wars” series and he naturally was a good sport about it all. So sit back, flick the Back to the Future and Oceans 11,12,13 trilogy and prepare for the first of our own “Kirk Trilogy”!! 

 

Love and peace. Haydn

Epi 68 “The Swing and other stories with Philip Mortlock”

“The Swing and other stories with Philip Mortlock”

After 67 episodes now completed, Bee and I were in for a treat with our latest guest Phillip Mortlock.

Not only intrinsic in assisting INXS to leave the smaller independent label Deluxe that produced INXS’ first two albums, but Philip’s massive expertise with other luminary bands such as Cold Chisel and Icehouse also paved the way for his artistic prowess to design The Swing, Dekadance and Listen Like Thieves album covers.

With clever themes and narratives highlighted on all of the singles, videos, and album covers/sleeves, Phillip was crucial in introducing the world to the timeless images and vistas that were INXS.

Having forged a career that included being a board member with A.R.I.A, producing the inspiring Alberts Documentary, and building the Origin Publishing Label, Philip has left an indelible footprint on the Australian entertainment industry.

So sit back and be taken back to a time and place that is most special to INXS fans. Peace and love!
