triple j– ‘Beat The Drum’ 3CD | DVD |DOWNLOAD Out Today!

 

In January, 25,000 music fans descended on Sydney’s Domain to be part of a once in a lifetime experience - A huge concert and radio event where the very best Australian musicians assembled to perform incredible one-off performances to celebrate 40 years of triple j.

Available today, the 3CD ‘Live’ Album and standalone DVD is jam-packed with an incredible string of guest appearances and unforgettable cover songs which absolutely blew the crowd away. From Goyte with his mesmerizing rendition of  ‘Hearts A Mess’, to Sarah Blasko and Paul Demspey’s beautiful cover of the 1993 Crowded House hit ‘Distant Sun’.   Bernard Fanning led the crowd in a sing-a-long to Australian Crawl’s classic hit ‘Reckless’, alongside Vance Joy & Ball Park Music playing an energetic version of the 1985 Hoodoo Gurus classic ‘Like Wow – Wipeout’ joined on-stage with Hoodoo Guru’s frontman, Dave Faulkner himself!

Another Australian music legend, Divinyls guitarist Mark McEntee, joined The Preatures on-stage to play a cover of ‘Boys In Town’ – with Izzy giving a shout out to the late great Chrissy Amphlett.  One of the biggest surprises and highlights of the night was Daniel Johns’ cover of Nirvana’s ‘Smells Like Teen Spirit’ – the song that came in at #1 in triple j’s Hottest 100 Of All Time and defined a whole generation.
