📻 AOTW | V - Faithless 🎧
From the AOTW Committee: "Here's one for the goths! Naarm based, Meanjin born V has released their latest album 'Faithless'."
"The album is a collaboration between V and the City of Melbourne's Heavy Machinery Records who contacted them to create an album on their public sound sculpture: the Federation Bells. V’s music is heavily influenced by the synth explosion in new wave and darkwave music in the 80s, however their new album 'Faithless' has taken a new direction towards a more minimal industrial sound."
"They recently came into Zed HQ for an interview on Liminal Space where they talked about their love for community radio, the making of the album and the meaning behind the title track 'Faithless'. You can listen back online at 4ZZZ.org.au, however a trigger warning for talk of suicide (specifically amongst the LGBTQIA+ community) is necessary."

❓Zed Trivia | Bags of Dope❓
Here are some words from Andy Nehl about Radiothon in the 80's - "The audience were just fanatical supporters. In 1981 and 1982 at Radiothon, more money came in than was actually pledged. It wasn’t uncommon, it happened a few times while I was there, for listeners to wander in with bags of dope to give to the radio station because they liked it so much."
Anyway... Here is a photo of Pauly, Ben, and Joe from the Brown Couch on April 20th.
