Welcome to my blog!
UPDATE: Mediafire have suspended my account and locked my downloads. Having endured the tedium of re-uploading everything I had previously hosted on Mega Upload onto Mediafire earlier this year, I can't be arsed re-uploading everything again.
So please don't ask for things to be reuploaded!
I undertake this venture knowing that I don't have the spare time to do it, but feel that these artists NEED TO BE HEARD (please excuse my shouting!). Or is that I think I need to be heard? Or that there are (or have been) some great music blogs that have inspired me to wanna jump on the bandwagon? Probably all of the above??I hope you enjoy the blog. If I turn one person onto these bands that turned me on then it will all have been worth it!

Beck - Beercan (Live - First TV appearance?)
Beck performing Beercan live on Australian TV show Denton in 1994.
I believe this was Beck's first TV performance. Presenter Andrew Denton asks Beck whether this is the case and Beck appears to confirm this.
Denton also featured a segment where the musical guests selected a random song from a barrel. The bands then had 30 minutes or so to learn the song before performing it at the show's conclusion.
I won't spoil the surprise regrading which 80s schlock pop hit Beck got lumped with....
Not the best quality, but worth it for the historical significance.
For those outside Australia, Andrew Denton is the only true maverick on Australian TV. Among his many career highlights was the the show Blah Blah Blah, which featured legendary Australian band Lubricated Goat performing In The Raw nude! But that's a post for another day....
