Epi 113: Richard Lowenstein Interview Part Two

Fresh off our Part One deep dive with Richard Lowenstein, we are excited to prove that the sequel sometimes can be better than the original. Somehow, we manage to recapture 1987 in all its glory, with further discussions about the Prague videos of “Never Tear Us Apart” and “Guns in the Sky”.
 
We explore his 2019 masterpiece “Mystify” documentary on Michael Hutchence and get a sense of the man as Richard reveals new anecdotes and stories of their time together. Additionally, Richard shares with us the sheer difficulty of putting the project together with band management regularly blocking needed music to augment the strict telling of the story.
 
With our much-loved patrons getting their questions answered, we are excited to close off this much-wanted discussion with a true “auteur” to the arts that is the great Richard Lowenstein.

Epi 112: Richard Lowenstein Interview; Part One

It’s with great pleasure that we welcome Richard Lowenstein to the INXS: Access All Areas family with a deep dive into his fantastic career. Having previously done an “origin” episode (see Episode 83), we finally get to hear from the man himself.
 
Richard dazzles us with discussions ranging from his early Swinburne College days through to all of the fantastic artists he has worked with over the journey, namely Hunters & Collectors, Cold Chisel, U2, Pete Townshend, Crowded House, and The Church.
And of course, we deep dive on 5 pivotal INXS videos that Richard lent his “auteur” hands to that are still talked about over 30 years later, rounding things off with the Mystify documentary and patron questions.
 
All listeners are in for a real treat. So, get ready for the first of this two-episode deep dive that is the wonderful Richard Lowenstein.

Epi 111: Haydn’s INXS Mix Tape

There is never a dull moment in the INXS world, and this week I was fortunate enough to take in the fantastic cover band in Victoria, Australia, “INXSIVE”! With blistering live performance, it reminded me of those nostalgic days when in the car with Mum and my sister on the 120 miles drive to Kyabram for Xmas.
 
As such, the good old mix tape offset the crackly fade of early 80's AM and the non-existent FM regional frequency. So, today I dive deep and retrospectively apply unique and meaningful INXS songs to an era in time that is sorely missed and remembered with nostalgic fondness.
 
We also get to hear Bee’s 1995 Pleasure and Pain tracks, with an emphasis on the pleasure (of course). With some fantastic interviews lined up over the next month, INXS: Access All Areas indulges in what INXS means to its co-hosts, and we hope you, too, can submit for mention your own INXS mix tape with a personal theme attached. We shall share them!!
 
Love and Peace ✌️
Haydn

Episode 110: Bee’s INXS Mix Tape

Before Spotify, iTunes, Amazon, iPods, and playlists, we music fans of the 1980s were sheer lovers of the “mix tape” format: often a romantic ode and gift to a high-school love, a compilation of radio tracks taped whilst studying or a most timely road-trip option when the old AM/FM frequency started to crackle as the family wagon hit the countryside.
So, today we dive deep into Bee’s favorite INXS songs, all themed for a much-needed escape away with the girls. We get to enjoy an assortment of INXS tracks—strictly 12 tracks with 6 on side 1 and 6 on side 2—that make that long drive from Coffs Harbour to her favorite entertainment destination a pure listening experience.
To balance the proceedings, we allow Haydn to dive deep into Pleasure & Pain with 10 awesome songs from 1995 when alternative music became the mainstream in quality and content.
All that and a whole lot more! So, kick back, forget about the problems in your life and embrace Episode 110 of INXS: Access All Areas.
 
Love and Peace ✌️

Epi 107: Michael Hutchence’s Most Primal Moments, Part 1: The List

Epi 106: Back in Time Series: INXS, Rocking the Royals in 1985

 
INXS: Access All Areas has largely taken a chronological deep dive over the last two years. However, today we are taking a “Marty McFly” trip back in the “DeLorean” and breaking from convention. As such, we travel back to November 4th, 1985, when INXS led a swathe of Australian talent by headlining the Charles & Diana concert: “Rocking the Royals”.
 
Situated in Melbourne, Victoria, whereby the state was celebrating its 150th anniversary, The Arts Centre gig became the most hotly-contested ticket in town as 3000 lucky fans got inside the venue and 40,000 fans danced and celebrated outside with the help of some big screens.
 
Freshly off the release of Listen Like Thieves, INXS powered through a blistering list of songs that had Charles clicking his fingers and Diana off her chair swaying to the dulcet tones of Michael’s evocative lyrics and moves.
 
It’s been said that the 1991 Wembley gig was the zenith of INXS’ star. However, gigs such as the Royals gig paved the momentum and ascent necessary to climb into the international consciousness of fans, both local and afar.
So, sit back, immerse yourself in 1985, and reminisce as we take a lovingly forensic look at what was “Rocking the Royals” with INXS!!
 
Love and Peace ✌️

Epi 105: INXS’s Full Moon Dirty Hearts, Side 2

As Bee and I come to the conclusion of our five-week examination of Full Moon, Dirty Hearts, we deep dive into Side 2 tracks, namely:
7. Full Moon Dirty Hearts 8. Freedom Deep 9. Kill the Pain 10. Cut Your Roses Down 11. The Messenger & 12. Viking Juice
With further analysis by famed producer Mark Opitz, we get further insights into the melodies, songwriting, and recording techniques with precise detail.
Additionally, Bee and I get to add some interesting non-singles album tracks to our ever-growing Spotify playlist. Hint Hint: there may be a record swag of songs added!
 
Mark is very passionate about the sequencing and tracklisting of Full Moon, Dirty Hearts and opined that if his original list was preserved, the album may have faired differently.
Anyway, buckle up and enjoy our closing chapter of Full Moon, Dirty Hearts and do yourself a favour and listen to this long-forgotten gem.
 
Love and Peace ✌️
