Immersive

Almost a Mirror is an immersive experience, a fascinating and compelling combination of musical history, aesthetics and memoir, with a literary overlay. I’m hanging out for the next episodes.

This is the sound track to my life!

A fabulously evocative rendering of time and place, an accurate and sympathetic snapshot of an era of intense musical and cultural creativity. Great content and fabulous narration and pacing.

Gritty, edgy, great look at the late 70s Melbourne music scene

So good to hear the behind the scenes stories. Great interviews and insights. Love the music and reading. Can’t wait for future episodes.
