The Larrikins "Navvy on the Line" LP 1977 "GroovUs Feed Aartists"

John B of NSW has very kindly provided us with his rip of this album. Many thanks John - I had been wondering when I would be able to access this one.

This was one of the early Larrikin releases - LRP 9 in 1977. It was later re-released by the ABC on vinyl and it is one of the re-released LP that John has ripped.

The performers on this album were Warren Fahey, Liora "Lalita" Claff, Tony Suttor, Ned Alexander, Paddy McLaughlan and Jack Fallis with alternating vocal performers as specified on the rear of the LP slip (graphics included in the download).

It's an enjoyable album featuring music, as sub-titled, "from the Australian Railway Tradition".

Ewan MacColl and Peggy Seeger live at The Regent Theatre, Sydney 1979. "GroovUs Feed Aartists"


Ewan MacColl and Peggy Seeger 1977 publicity kit photo
Yes, this one does not fit into the remit of this blog. In fact, there are only two connections to Australia. Firstly, this was a live performance at The Regent Theatre in January 1979 when they performed as part of the Sydney Festival of Folk Life. Secondly, they sang a song about Joh Bjelke-Petersen. However, I suspect many visitors to the blog will welcome the inclusion of this album.

That concert of about three hours was professionally recorded by the ABC and later broadcast in parts on ABC-FM. John B recorded the broadcast parts on a reel-to-reel recorder. He collated the parts to recreate the full concert and has subsequently separated and digitally converted each of the tracks. He has also conveniently numbered the tracks in order as two sets so as to enable the production of two CDs to feature the concert continually as in the original broadcast. (Note that if you wish to do that, ensure that there is no gap between tracks when recording - the default is usually 2 seconds)

There are a few minor glitches but, overall, the quality is very good despite an MP3 rate of 128 CBR which correlates to the original FM broadcast quality anyway. Great job John B.

What is the U.R.{BNE} Collective? "IndyWatch Feed Seq"

U.R.{BNE} YOU ARE BRISBANE

IMG_2408

The U.R.{BNE} Collective is a group run by volunteer urban planners, with the primary goal to make use of, and bring people to, the lesser known, under-utilised spaces in Brisbane.

Each year, The U.R.{BNE} Collective holds a festival in order to achieve this goal. This year, Wickham Park was the prime location. The space is surrounded by negative connotations; many of Brisbanes homeless reside there, and a Korean student was murdered at the park in 2013. The U.R.{BNE} Collective wanted to create a more positive representation of the park, and to make use of the valuable Brisbane space.
