The Kick Inside...

Episode 2


This month Robin is off to Australia and New Zealand with a big bunch of people for the Cosmic Shambles LIVE tour, so before he left he and Michael sat down to talk through a book about the greatest Australian albums of all time and work out how many New Zealand bands they’d heard of. There’s angry discussions around INXS, Midnight Oil, The Datsuns, Lorde, Nick Cave and more and then ponderings about why so much good music from down under never made it to the UK.
