    E17: Conversation with John Watson

    E17: Conversation with John Watson

    In this episode, I speak to someone without whom you probably would never have heard of the band Silverchair. Not only did he essentially discover them and, in his role as a Sony A&R sign the band to Murmur, he also not long after became their manager and mentor and navigated their career basically from start to finish.
    His John Watson Management company currently manages some of the biggest names in Australian music, such as Midnight Oil, Cold Chisel, Missy Higgins and Birds of Tokyo. He is also the founder and head of Eleven, the record label that released Diorama and Young Modern in Australia and put out albums by The Dissociatives, Goyte, Paul Mac and the Presets.  
    I have wanted to talk to John Watson ever since I started this podcast, so this was a real bucket list guest. I hope you enjoy listening as much as I enjoyed talking to John ‘Watto’ Watson.

    E16: Revisit Series: Abuse Me

    E16: Revisit Series: Abuse Me

    Wait, what is this episode? I’m glad you asked. I’ve decided to go back and delve a bit deeper into some of the older songs and give them the treatment I would have given them had they appeared on one of the later albums. This episode I’ll be covering Abuse Me, the second single released from Silverchair’s second album Freak Show (unless you were in North America, where it was the first single). It entered the ARIA chart April 6, 1997, peaking at number 9. What’s interesting about this song’s structure? What’s its legacy? What does ‘throw the sailors overboard’ even mean? Let’s find out.

    E15: Young Modern (Part 2)

    E15: Young Modern (Part 2)

    Young Modern got great reviews at home in Australia but, by now, even the good reviews overseas failed to set the world on fire. An early promotional tour of the US in mid-2007, where they gritted their teeth on commercial radio and TV Morning Shows, as well as perform for the late-night programs proved not to be the silver bullet the band might have hoped. Stylistically, Young Modern might have pointed the way forward for Silverchair but, alas, it wasn’t to be. What happened?

    E14: Young Modern (Part 1)

    E14: Young Modern (Part 1)

    Released March 31, 2007, Young Modern debuted at number one on the ARIA chart, eventually going three-times platinum in Australia. The album also won six ARIAs and its lead single, Straight Lines, placed second on the Triple J’s Hottest 100. For all the acclaim though, it was another departure in sound for the band and, for some fans, it remains controversial to this day. Let’s explore.

    E12: Conversation with Billy Martin

    E12: Conversation with Billy Martin

    In this episode, I welcome another very special guest. He’s the guitarist from multi-platinum selling band Good Charlotte and, as it happens, he’s also a MASSIVE fan of Silverchair. It’s the one and only Billy Martin! 
    I had a really fun chat with Billy, talking about how Silverchair influenced him musically, the multiple times he met them and hung out, and also about the state of rock music in 2020. If you want to hear two grown men geek out about Silverchair, you don’t want to miss this one.
