You can also download each episode directly (click on the title below), if you’re commitment-phobic.

One: Mitch Jones, Scattered Order

MITCH JONES stands as one of the key figures in the history of alternative music in Sydney. Together with Michael Tee, Jones founded M-SQUARED Records – home to a cluster of now seminal local post-punk artists such as SYSTEMATICS, THE MAKERS OF THE DEAD TRAVEL FAST, YA YA CHORAL, PROD and their own band, SCATTERED ORDER. Nearly 30 years after the fact, SCATTERED ORDER have reformed their original line-up, and are both playing live and recording once again. Mitch Jones joins Stu and Danny on NEW WEIRD AUSTRALIA to talk about the past, present and future of SCATTERED ORDER.

Two: Jeff Burch

JEFF BURCH is an American born New Zealander now based in Sydney, Australia. Besides his solo work he also runs independent Imprint/Record Label THE SPRING PRESS (Bruce Russell, Psychic Ills, Magik Markers, The Bats etc.), has a duo project MADALA TRAP with PAUL GOUGH / PIMMON and is one quarter of SONGS. In this podcast he discusses his various projects with Stuart Buchanan and Danny Jumpertz from NEW WEIRD AUSTRALIA.

Please note due to licence restrictions, pre-recorded music cannot be made available at full-length on these podcasts, and appears here in an edited form.
