We've reviewed a variety of Australian bands, so it's time we host a discussion on the various music scenes around the country in the 90s

Author & Special Guests

Before this month, we had reviewed thirteen albums from Australian bands in the 90s in the first four years of the podcast, but we still did’t have a good understanding of the overall history Australian music during that time. What were their influences? What were the scenes in the different cities like? What is Big Day Out? The Saints? The Scientists? To help us unlock the mysteries, we’re joined by frequent requester and friend of the show Gavid Reid, along with Dan Buhagiar, producer and writer at Double J radio.

And check out Dan’s article on the 10 Australian Bands From the ‘90s Worth Revisiting.
