Hey Star-listeners, what’s the haps with you? Where are you rockin’ these days? Where do you get your doof on? Well we’ve just added plenty to the HAL++’s playlist to keep you moving and groovin’. We’ve also uploaded the lastest set from Bill and his show Human Pleasure at Hourly Rates (if you don’t know who he is well he’s the John Peel of the Southern Hemisphere 😉
So it’s like the something of March 2011 and I’ve finally got round to posting something here in the blog for Starlifter Radio. Man it’s been a hectic couple of months. I guess it always gonna be moving countries and over a great body of water. Well, we finally made the big move back to Melbourne from Christchurch. And just in time as it turned out. Late in February Christchurch was hit by another massive earthquake, more destructive than the one in September. Although our immediate families and loved ones are alive we do know of people who are not. Our hearts and thoughts go out to all who lost people in the quake. It sucks, it’s hard and we really do feel for you. Believe it or not but almost 80,000 people have temporarily moved out of the city… 80,000, that’s almost a fifth of the city. Freakin’ woah! If you do want to help the people of Christchurch recovery from this traumatic event please try and help where you can or donate to the NZ Red Cross [www.redcross.org.nz].
Now on to the tunes, there are a few Christchurch gems in there, a new track from Muzai Records signed Sherpa, an oldie from Blonde Redhead, a remix of the original earthquake track by Circuit Bent, a new one from the new Siriusmo album and a dirty ole demo from Shocking Pinks first album, Dance the Dance Electric. Oh, and we have the latest podcast from Indie Slut, host o f Human Pleasure at Hourly Rates on RDU 98.5 FM. Jah bless you uncle!
So much love and peace,
