about

Sydney’s original party starter has been making us all taste the radness for over a decade. The dance rock pioneer electrifies brainwaves and creams pants wherever and whenever he graces the stage. He’s also a bit of a renaissance man, not only kicking arse and taking names as a performer in his own right, but also produces records and directing videos for others. And when he’s not stimulating your eardrums, he’s over-coming your taste buds with his own, delicious, organic range of beef jerky.

His latest album ‘Taste The Sadness’ is a mature nod to his debut album ‘Taste The Radness’ (2003). In celebration of getting older and wiser, SPOD has reinterpreted the debut album to reflect life 10 years on. This beautiful record reminiscent of Harry Nilsson and all things adult and sad is sure to tug on them depression strings. And then you laugh in the face of it all because getting old is scary.

The painful truth is that all pleasant evenings of nightclub-dwelling debauchery must come to an eventual end, in both the literal and metaphorical sense. Local sweat-pop, dance-rock legend, SPOD, has passed the partying pinnacle of his life, where throwing streamers at strangers, maiming innocent people with missile champagne corks and slow-grinding unsuspecting pub attendees isn’t as much fun as it once was.

Taste The Sadness, explores hitting the second half of your existence in full-stride, dislocated your hip in the process and then spending the rest of your days in an extremely comfortable armchair explaining to everyone about how much significantly more enjoyable everything was when you were able to enjoy things more.
