More Than A Whelan

Share Podcast:
Thrilled to have a chat with poet/performer and Bondi royalty Adam Gibson (The Ark-Ark Birds, Modern Giant, The Aerial Maps) at the Coogee Bay Hotel. I want to start by apologising to all the residents of Coogee Bay for pronouncing Coogee incorrectly. Thank you Adam for bringing that to my attention. And thank you Adam for reminding me of the incredible history of Selina's, the band venue at the very hotel we recorded this episode at. Selina's has hosted Nirvana, Midnight Oil, INXS and many other legends of music by Australian and international. I found the link to the D Generation skit of Melbourne themed songs that Adam spoke of! You can listen to Adam's 'Angie Hart' track right here. Years later Going Down Swinging would commision Angie Hart to write and perform a response to Adam's piece. You can read the story of that here. Adam performs a poem on the show called The Shark. You can hear the recorded version of this with this band The Aerial Maps right here. Oceans of gratitude as always to my producer Derek Myers of Castaway Studios. And to my very generous supporter Luxe Country. Visit our online store at Luxe Country to purchase yourself some sweet More Than A Whelan merch. Also in breaking news our amazing More Than A Whelan logo is now available on a tshirt! Please visit this link to grab yourself the hottest look for summer. And lastly I just want to remind you that More Than A Whelan is coming to the Melbourne Writers Festival! I am so thrilled about this, tickets are available from here right now!
