Episode 77: Darren O'Mahony, Dominic Black, Gerry McKeague and a Huge Thank-You (5-string banjo, guitar, singing)
A chat to mark passing the 100K download mark, with Gerry McKeague of Belfast and Geelong. About what we've learned so far and where we're going. Seriously great fun, and a lovely chance for us to think out loud about what this all means to us. And to say thank to all of you who've travelled with us this far.
Darren plays Sandy River Belle and Morphine
Dominic sings Please Tell My Brother
Gerry sings Sailing Southwards from Rathlin Island
During the episode Darren spoke about his good friend Jae Mulder the urban explorer. This is one of the last posts Jae made to Reddit before he moved on. He was always a very careful guy when it came to sharing as he didn't want to get in trouble with the law. Well in the end that didn't really matter so he shared his adventures with us all. RIP Jae man. HOONK HOOOOONK!
Darren also mentioned a place called 610 Anne Street in Brisbane that the DIY punk and noise scene was based around for a time. Here's a great article that brings some of it to life. https://gladrappa.wordpress.com/2012/03/18/610-ann-street-circa-2005/?fbclid=IwAR0AGbPH6-5DFO6aKj3UYIx-n5WYAoui8YRI5g1o7FtFl_t08N7WpvNcfqU
