Welcome to the second of two live versions of The Adelaide Show Podcast, as part of the Adelaide Podcast Festival. And thank you to Rumpus Room Studio for more great photos.

This is NOT our usual format but that will return in episode 186.

Tonight, our guest is Brett Monten, our original musical curator, singer/songwriter, and founding member of Voodoo Tattoo. And we’ll be discussing the music scene in Adelaide and South Australia.

We’re also hoping to involve our live audience in a rendition of our theme song.

This week, the SA Drink Of The Week is Coopers .

Dr Bill Griggs, Director Of Trauma at the Royal Adelaide Hospital will be back with yet another snippet from our interview in episode 183, but this time on the nerdy subject of Geocaching.

Nigel will try to stump the audience with IS IT NEWS on the topic of unusual crimes in South Australia.

Plus, we’ll continue our new segment, 100 Weeks Ago. This week, it’s been 100 weeks since Andrew Andrews joined us to reflect on a flare up in xenophobia.

And Donnarumma return, this time with their song, Broken Strings, in the musical pilgrimage.

00:05:21 Stories Without Notice- Brett Monten of Voodoo Tattoo

Our first musical curator, Brett Monten, is with us tonight and given we are in a pub it makes sense to get his views on what the music scene is like in Adelaide and South Australia at the moment.

You do solo work and you’re also part of Voodoo Tattoo – how would you pitch your band to the owner of the Elephant British

Is there much scope for original music out there?

How do you read crowds? And can you modify things, given you probably have a set list?

What is the best way to support local bands

We see a new band on a Saturday night – what has led up to that? Rehearsals, planning, juggling work, etc?

What do you make in a gig and how does a band like Voodoo Tattoo fund itself?

Can you set goals as a band, or is it like prospecting and you’re just ready to react when you hit gold?

Finally, you wrote our theme song and you envisioned it being sung by happily tippsy people in a front bar. Do you want to give it a go tonight, in getting that feeling?

00:14:56 Dr Bill Griggs
A snippet that didn’t make the final version of episode 183 in which Bill and Nigel wander off on a long discussion about geocaching, leaving Steve a little lost in the shadows.
00:24:18 100 weeks ago
A snippet of Andrew Andrews, a local entrepreneur and business person, who joined us in episode 85 of The Adelaide Show at a time when xenophobia was rife again. Sadly, the WA election and Donald Trump’s election have conspired to give an outlet to such fear-inspired venom again. In this cut, Andrew was highlighting how there are many reasons that prompt people to flee their homelands, by sharing the story of how his family had to do it twice.
00:27:35 Is It News?

The news history quiz with Nigel Dobson-Keeffe.

TIMES October 1993
Police fear punk band violence
Victor Harbor police are concerned about an influx of troublemakers into the town whenever a certain punk rock group appears. Sergeant Bruce Brocklebank said police confiscated offensive weapons from a car in the Hotel Crown car park. Railway Terrace, on Saturday when the group Clowns of Decadence played at the hotel “If these weapons were found in one car it was likely there were weapons in others as well,” Sgt Brocklebank said. The weapons included a sawn-off air rifle, a knife, homemade knight sticks, a baton and a sling shot. “These types of people often follow these types of bands,” Sgt Brocklebank said. Sgt Brocklebank said the band had only played at Victor Harbor twice and both times there had been trouble.

Times and Northern Advertiser February 1920
BLACK ROCK
The bachelors of Black Rock and district are giving a Leap Year Dance on Wednesday evening February 29, in the local hall. Anyone seeking a pleasant outing will find it right there. Gentlemen one shilling, and ladies admitted for free. Strawed floor and plenty of bales. Please keep this date free for a good night and the best meat raffle in the district. Good music and plenty of fun. Funds in aid of local hall.

Making of Music
“What is the best musical instrument for my child to play?” is a question asked by scores of parents these days. Nowadays choice of suitable instruments is not influenced so much by the sex of a child as in the past. Conservative institutions like the Halle Orchestra are using women drummers and trombonists, and Adelaide orchestral concerts, for years, depended on a woman flautist to see them through the flute titbits. Some instruments are not calculated to show a girl to the best advantage, and these can be suggested only to those who mean, marriage or no marriage, to be professional musicians. An English critic recently commented that no young man ever fell in love with a girl while she tootled a flute or pushed her way “there and back” on the trombone. On the
other hand, a harp still shows off, as in our great-grandfathers’ days, a graceful neck and pretty arms. So does a cello, as Adelaide audiences know.

00:35:56 Musical Pilgrimage
And our song this week is Broken by Donnarumma, selected by our musical curator Dan Drummond.
00:45:40 Outtake
¬†Not for you … Must we give the buns away … Give us the clap … Clap us in, big boy

Here is this week’s preview video:

No preview video this week.

SFX: Throughout the podcast we use free sfx from freesfx.co.uk for the harp, the visa stamp, the silent movie music, the stylus, the radio signal sfx, the wine pouring and cork pulling sfx, and the swooshes around Siri.
