Phil Jamieson’s triple j Unearthed favourites
In each of his excellent Artist In Residence shows throughout November, Grinspoon frontman Phil Jamieson rifled through the thousands of incredible tracks currently up on triple j Unearthed and picked a couple of gems each week.
Of course, Unearthed has a pretty special place in Jamieson’s heart. Grinspoon were the first band to win Unearthed back in the mid-1990s (along with Ode to a Goldfish), which helped expose them to a national audience very quickly.
Jamieson also showed that love by making a special appearance at the triple j Unearthed.com ten-year anniversary party, where he sang one of his biggest hits with Melbourne party-starters Northeast Party House.
With so much music to choose from, Jamieson admitted he had trouble narrowing it down to a handful of acts. But he’s done a damn good job.
Here are his selections:
Chook Race – ‘At Your Door’
Stale Cakes – ‘Grub’
Royal Chant – ‘Dick Move’
Chantelle Defina – ‘Irreversible’
Jurassic Nark – ‘Ain’t Lookin Pretty’
Glitoris – ‘Paradise’
Lazertits – ‘Boss Bitch’
Denpasar – ‘B Noticed’
