Static :: 8:00pm 23rd May 2019

On tonight’s “Static” program (Thursday 23rd May) …

It’s a very special edition this evening, as we celebrate the 20th Anniversary of Cronulla-via-Wollongong label Spunk! Records!

Founder Aaron Curnow has launched and nurtured the careers of homegrown talent like Jack Ladder, Holly Throsby, The Ocean Party, Emma Russack, The Middle East and more … as well as releasing landmark international albums by Arcade Fire, Sleater-Kinney, Antony & The Johnsons, Bonnie “Prince” Billy, Mac DeMarco and others.

Ahead of this weekend’s celebratory gigs at Sydney Opera House for Vivid LIVE, tune in as Aaron guest-programs highlights of the history of the label, talks through his choices with Berko, and drops a few true-life tales of Spunk! rock.
