Interview #15 – Nazeem Hussain.

Ladies & Gentlemen welcome to the Hot & Delicious: Rocks The Planet.
I’m pretty excited right now as at this every moment it’s Melbourne International Comedy Festival season in Melbourne and I just love how the whole city comes to life at this time of year.

To celebrate, I’m going to focus our podcast interviews over the next month around some of Australia’s top stand-up comedians and a few wonderful international acts also. And as a special treat to you guys – this week I’m dropping not one but two episodes – today’s interview with Australian comedian, actor and radio presenter, Nazeem Hussain and the 2nd one tomorrow with New York-based Aussie comedian Scott Dooley.
 
Love this chat with Naz. When he arrived, he just walked into my apartment and immediately we were chatting as if we were old friends – the conversation just flowed. 
 
We cover off traveling to faraway festivals in Western Australia, dealing with drunks and wanna-be hecklers when you’re on stage, his transition from working in tax law doing comedy on the side to having his own tax show and being taken out to dinner by Australian spy agency, ASIO.. yes I’m serious… 
 
Anyway, enjoy the ep and don’t forget to subscribe to this shit as we have a bunch more wicked interviews coming up with super comedians every week.
 
Peace!

Kingswood + Bertie Blackman live at The Corner Hotel.. Possibly the best rock photography you’ve ever seen 😉

Posted on Updated on

Kingswood live at The CornerJet-set everybody! Kingswood have wrapped a killer Australian tour and they are USA bound!

Last Thursday Hot & Delicious hit Kingswood’s sold-out ‘Ohio’ single launch at The Corner Hotel (Melbourne). Supported by Bertie Blackman + Lurch & Chief, Kingswood delivered their usual punch of wicked riffs, soaring vocals, cheeky chat between tracks and kick-ass live show. And when lead singer Fergus Linacre stopped the last song halfway through to have the whole Corner Hotel crowd get down on their knees.. cherry on the cake! Seriously one of our favourite live bands right now.

The 2nd half of 2013 sees the Melbourne lads jetting off to Nashville’s Blackbird Studio to record their debut album with Jack White’s long-time Grammy-winning producer, Vance Powell, back to Australia for a couple of festivals, a string of USA shows and then back to Aussie again for the summer festival circuit.

The banter, the stage-craft, balls & all rock & roll.. Kingswood are destined for glory!

The Jungle Giants crank The Corner Hotel! Sick live photos!

The Jungle Giants - Corner Hotel 060713

Valley Fiesta 2011. First time I saw The Jungle Giants live. 

I was living in Queensland working with Brisbane Festival, when one of my Spiegeltent colleagues raved about this young band of awesome local-Brisbane musos that I just had to check out. That band was The Jungle Giants and their wicked catchy tunes swiftly reached high-rotation on my iPhone. Just a few weeks later I was project managing Valley Fiesta for Strut N Fret when they hit the Brunswick St Main Stage & wow.. do they crank!

Flash forward to Splendour last year & I was fortunate enough to hang out with the band whilst camping/drinking buddies with Andy (The Belligerents) & his crew; such friendly, down-to-earth peeps with mad skills who obviously love what they do, so when I heard The Jungle Giants were down in Melbourne last weekend, I just had to be there & get one of our shooters along.

With amazing live energy and performance/stagecraft, The Jungle Giants blew away the sold-out Corner Hotel and left me wanting to know just one thing..  Do they feed you Skittles & Red Bull before each show, Andrew? 😀

The Jungle Giants are currently on their ‘I Am What You Want Me To Be’ single tour with 2 more shows this weekend in Brisbane (Friday 12th July – Oh Hello!) and Sydney (Saturday 13th July – The Standard).

Crank this shit loud, check out our pics from The Corner Hotel below & get your ass down to a show.. you will not be disappointed!

Tour Dates:

Brisbane (Friday 12th July – Oh Hello!)

With The Belligerents, Young Men Dead

Sydney (Saturday 13th July – The Standard).

With Bloods, Bec And Ben
