As INXS: Access all Areas moves forward from its 50 episode trial run, we take a step back to where it all started as a touring live act on the Northern Beaches and vital Sydney Pub scene where the band plied its trade, experimented with original tracks and lit up the audience with timely cover songs of luminary artists of that time.
New friend of the podcast Peter Toluzzi was just the man to capture the sounds of 1979 and early 1980 with his dual recordings of said tracks. The first gig aptly titled “Funky Junk” was recorded at the Alley Cat Wine Bar on June 10th 1979 and the second “Beware the Ides of March” on March 15th 1980.
So get your best headphones on, immerse yourself in a bygone era barely captured and absorb the genesis of where the Farriss Brothers morphed into the mighty INXS with sheer guts and determination to their craft.
Plus extra stuff will be posted here over the next few days
