Episode 165: Young Johnny Farriss

Updated: Nov 12, 2023

With two weeks off, Bee and I are back with renewed vigor and passion as we welcome to the show Shaun and Scott from Voxneon. Shaun just happened to be part of “The Keep,” a Davidson High band that included iconic INXS members Michael Hutchence, Garry Beers and Andrew Farriss.

We take listeners back nearly 50 years ago when the early genius of Andrew was on full display, to Shaun and a raw, broody and emerging Michael who was developing his singing and stage craft.

Interestingly, we take a deep dive with both Shaun and Scott into the magic of early synth soundscapes of the emerging 1980’s, highlighting Gary Numan, Simple Minds, Icehouse, Human League and Kraftwerk.

The duo’s love for INXS shines through as we dive deep on the bands complex and versatile sonics and legendary vocal phrasing of Michael. Their passion and respect comes through.

Finally, we make a big announcement regarding an upcoming guest that, simply stated, will be our biggest musician to ever appear on our show. All that and a whole lot more!

Love and Peace ✌️ Haydn
