This is a very special episode of Live Delay featuring New Zealand cult group The Garbage And The Flowers who played a rare live set in Brisbane in 2012. We’re also featuring Brisbane’s own Kitchen’s Floor, playing live at the 4ZZZ BaZZZaar in West End in around August 2012.

Recorded by Andrew McLellan.
Mixed by Dusty Anastassiou.
Recorded at The Bridge Club, Brisbane.

The Garbage And The Flowers are Yuri Frusin and Helen Johnstone and they’re known for the off kilter pop music that comes out at strange angles. Originally hailing from Wellington, New Zealand, the duo moved to Sydney about a decade ago and have remained fairly quiet since – emerging every now and then to remind fans of their esoteric loveliness at the most opportune times. I swear ‘Love Comes Slowly Now’ from their opus Eye Rind As If Beggars is one of the most beautiful songs ever penned. Tune in to here them at their marvellous best.

Kitchen’s Floor play pop documenting the angst-ridden narratives of Brisbane suburbia. Led by Matt Kennedy, the group are well respected nationally, with their second record ‘Look Forward To Nothing’ garning critical praise when it was released back in 2011.

This set comes from 4ZZZ radiothon in 2012 out at West End and features a good mix of both old and new. It’s enlightening so you better effin tune in.
