After flooring all who attended the Big Star’s Third tribute show for Sydney Festival in January and his subsequent solo shows with Chris Stamey and Skylar Gudasz, Ken Stringfellow is returning to Australia for intimate sideshows in Sydney, Hobart and Melbourne.
REM - The I-94 Bar
Flashback: I remember the first time I heard REM. Paul had just bought their first LP and we sat in his little bedroom, listening with something akin to amazement.
Now, I mention REM’s first LP because it was one of those exclamation mark moments, similar to “Measuring the Space” by inner-western Sydney band The Hadron Colliders.
My response to hearing this was immediate and positive, and I’ve now spun “Measuring the Space”…over and over.
