CONTACT! 22-01-1992: The Swordfish feature show

Playing tracks by

The Jam and Martha & The Muffins.

A chance recent find from the notoriously chaotic 28-year CONTACT! archive yielded this complete show from the 2RDJ-FM era (when the show's format was two hours on Wednesday nights), showcasing the then-brand-new debut mini-album for legendary Sydney indie groovers Swordfish (James Dixon, Pete Marley, Pete Hickson and the late Rob Hodgson). The hour-plus interview and unique acoustic cuts were recorded at 2RDJ-FM (Burwood, NSW) in mid-January 1992 following the CD release in December 1991 on Volition. The remainder of the two hours is filled with other fine stuff from largely the same era, including Templebears, Club Hoy, Ride, Ned's Atomic Dustbin, Jesus Jones, Teenage Fanclub and Splinter. Step in & enjoy the time trip!
