Heavy Demo ft. Amanda Acevedo & Mick Harvey

Amanda Acevedo and Mick Harvey join me this week to explore their album of duets “Phantasmagoria in Blue”. All the music is curated by Amanda and Mick. We chat about the stimulus for the record, influences for the record and the making of the record. Towards the end of the episode we spend a bit of time talking about The Birthday Party to celebrate the release of Ian White’s new documentary about “Mutiny In Heaven”. The Birthday Party tracks featured at the end are all Mick Harvey compositions.

Amanda and Mick perform “Phantasmagoria in Blue” at the Great Club in Marrickville on November 24th with support from another friend of the show Lo Carmen.

“Mutiny in Heaven” is currently on at The Ritz in Randwick, The Dendy in Newtown and The Golden Age Cinema in Surry Hills.

I snuck on two of my favourite Mick Harvey tracks “I Wish I Were Stone” and his interpretation of Fred Neil’s “Just a Little Bit of Rain”.
