Off the Beaten Tracks playlist 25 JUL

July 29th, 2014 · Show playlist

buddahmachineThanks to everyone that tuned in for the eighth Off the Beaten Tracks show right here on the only station that can offer this kind of musical diversirty NOOSA 101.3FM.  As usual I enjoyed sourcing and playing some interesting new music from around the traps.

This week we got into:

  • Some ambient electronic drone from the Beijing initiated Buddah Machine (inside a little plastic box with a speaker)
  • A couple of ambient experimental tracks from one of the creators of the Buddah Machine Christiaan Virant
  • A bit of Swedish low-fi, shoegazing from Covox (Thomas Söderlund) who seems to have strong connections to the Beijing electronic experimental scene
  • Experimental noise rock with mighty fine melodies from duo Alpine Decline who relocated from the States to Beijing
  • Indie electronic pop from Nottingham England’s Napoleon
  • Some very smooth indie dream pop from San Francisco based Minipop
  • And staying in San Fran we listened to 2 tracks by skateboarding master Tommy Guerrero which have just become available as digital downloads
  • We’ll move from the West coast to the East coast with a jazz track from Ginger Bakers new album “Why”. Ginger Baker being Cream’s drummer of course.
  • Then to a political song about the recent Marikana massacre at the platinum mines in South Africa from Simphiwe Dana
  • And finally for this segment of the show, a reggae roots track from a Paris production team Paris DJs who sing about a “True Born African Man”—a song I can with.

In the second hour we got into the mix as usual with Off the Beaten Mix and some of the latest underground electronic and dance music. You can find the tracklists below plus the full DJ set.

The Naked Magicians

July 21st, 2014 · Community, Events, Theatre promotion



Queensland, prepare for magic, mayhem, oh, and a touch of nakedness!!
It’s ABRACADABRA but not as you know it!!


After a sold out season in Brisbane in June, and sell out, rave seasons at the Brisbane Comedy Festival and Adelaide Fringe Festival THE NAKED MAGICIANS are bringing their critically acclaimed show to Noosa!!!

Starring magic, mirth and more than a touch of mayhem, it’s the show that has everyone talking, and even Las Vegas is keen for a peek! This boisterous R-rated magic show strips away the top hats and capes, starring two Brisbane boys – whose mothers are still very proud of them – Christopher Wayne and Mike Tyler.  Their mantra is, good magicians don’t need sleeves and great magicians don’t need pants! And this show proves just that!

With no pockets or sleeves to rely on, The Naked Magicians‘ unique interactive tricks are mind-boggling, entertaining and fabulously saucy.

DATES: Friday August 8
TIME: 7.30pm
TICKET PRICES: Concession & Groups $42, General Admission $48.
BOOKING: or 07 5329 6560
