Episode 11 of season 4 aired on 18 March 2021 amidst national load shedding and general chaos from power outages. It had an effect on the show with people having to drop out continually. The broadcast itself wasn’t affected but it’s a real fucking pain.
We had a mellow start for a change with Rainbow and ‘ Catch the Rainbow‘ and then followed with The Wizard, the 1972 classic from Uriah Heep. After that, it got a bit rowdier with Q5 and Slash. It was great to hear Tank and Savage, the two invoking some good early ’80’s NWOBHM memories. We paid tribute to Brisbane as Brissie has overtaken everyone as the greatest supporters of TSORR. I am deeply grateful for the support. In deference, we played Airbourne and The Screaming Jets and then later we some Jimmy Barnes and The Lazy’s.
From there we went all over the place from The Police to Kreator, Marianne Faithful to W.A.S.P, and then some SA rarities in the form of Kobus! and Blue Scream. There was plenty of punk with Anti-Flags ‘Wake Up!’ and The Distillers with L.A. Girl, which makes it about 4 weeks in a row of the wonderful Brody Dalle. There was a nice little bit of nostalgia where we took in 3 tracks from albums released in 2006, I had good memories of MTV days at between 4 and 6 in the morning. The highlight for me was Rammstein with ‘Mehr‘ and Alice Cooper’s new track ‘Hanging By a Thread‘, I enjoyed the Little Steven track as well.
