    I really enjoy early-mid 70s Alice Cooper. The new album has a few good songs but overall is just ok.

    Yeah I don't think Alice has released anything ground breaking for years, but he's good at releasing listen able albums. Detroit Stories is pretty much what I expected from Alice at this point, a few good songs, a few catchy riffs and choruses but not what he used to do.

    Last 5 albums
    The Angles - Live in Melbourne 1980
    Jim Steinman - Bad For Good
    Sabaton - Primo Victoria
    W.A.S.P. - The Crimson Idol

    Yeah ye olde Cooper is so fucking good. I also love early 80's Cooper myself, from Lace and Whiskey to DaDa I'm all in. I'll still check the new one out but I'll probably come to the same conclusion as you.

    Speaking of new thrash the new Nekromantheon album is an absolute monster.

    I'm guessing this is meant to be Woe to the Vanquished or Weapons of Tomorrow...? In which case, awesome records. Love me a bit of Warbringer!!

    Slim Dusty - Live at Wagga Wagga
    Suppression - Release the Piranha
    Sockeye - Retards Hiss Past My Window
    Slope - Street Heat
    Łeb Prosiaka - Porno Zombie

    Recently watched that 2020 Slim Dusty documentary called Slim & I, more or less told from the perspective of his wife Joy McKean. Pretty damn good, especially learning just how large a role his wife played in his success and greatness. I mean as a life long fan I already knew she wrote a lot of his songs, but I didn't know she pushed him to do songs he didn't initially like that went on to become classics (strongest example is "Duncan" an absolute beaut) and that she was essentially his driver, tour manager, plus doing all the typical wifely shit.

    If ever there was a prime example of what "behind every great man is a woman" means it's Joy McKean. Also an amazing musician in her own right, could have had her own career if she really wanted to but she believed so much in Slim that she put all her energy behind his career instead.

    I haven't gotten around to seeing that yet, keep forgetting about it. I've read all her books and Slim's and they tell a fascinating story of a life on roads that most people can't even dream about. Forget about paved highways and dirt tracks some of the places they took Old Purple (the XD Falcon) with the caravan and the old International trucks were roads today's 4WD nuts wouldn't tackle.

    The song of Joy's that always surprised me was Lights On The Hill. There is not a truck driver I know of who doesn't know the song and can't relate in some way. After 20 years behind the wheel mainly doing night shift most of the guys I worked with figured that song would be their epitaph. Sadly for some it was.

    This docco covers a fair amount of their time on the road with lots of old archive footage and photos of them trying to get Old Purple unbogged on all those old dirt roads they had to tackle. There's an entire segment dedicated to talking about how they went out of their way to visit remote aboriginal communities and play shows which was probably my favourite part of the whole thing.

    It's definitely not going to blow your mind with new info or anything (especially since you've read their books which I haven't even done yet) but it's a good watch for when you have some down time. It even goes a bit into when Slim took Keith Urban on tour when he was relatively unknown which I didn't know about, the live footage of them together is so bizarre.

    Yeah that tune is intense, all the truckers I know love it too. I remember finding out Joy wrote that, and in this docco she talks about the incident that inspired it which was pretty cool. Also that the cassette she taped her demo of it on (for posterity) got almost completely taped over by Slim while he was jamming out tunes over a year's period lmao. Almost lost the song!

    They were one of the first, if not the first white people to be accepted into those communities. They worked hard, followed the rules and earned the respect of the locals which got them return visits. It was something bands/entertainers of the time just didn't do. Still to this day there are remote communities that wont accept any other people but accept Slim and Joy's family. Bands like Midnight Oil do have access to some places but Joy and Slim earned access everywhere.

    Keith then compared to Keith now was so different, but that doesn't explain why the Aus Music industry basically snubbed him to the point of sending him overseas. Of course they kiss his arse now that he's made it huge over there.

    The farm that they bought on the Snowy River in Vic is one of our favourite fishing spots I spent years going down there and not knowing I was driving past Slim's gate.

    All the albums might well have had his name on the cover but they were much more than just that and for the guy to release 120 albums in his career it's an awesome feat.

    Yeah monstrous output, he was signed to EMI for a 2 albums per year contract for ages, pretty nuts!

    I mean, this might be presumptuous but Slim probably plays a huge hand in how and why country music is so popular in aboriginal communities. All my aboriginal family love him, even refer to him as "Uncle Slim" and shit like that. Just the idea of him going off-road into those communities in the 60's is crazy to think about considering how bad the racial and cultural divides were back then.

    I don't think it's that presumptuous they went so many places that others couldn't/wouldn't. Those communities might already have had their own music and entertainment but Slim and Co brought a completely different version of it to them. But at the same time they didn't enforce their brand on the people, the learnt as much from the communities as they taught.

    Imagine some bands today having a 2 album per year contract...and still touring doing upwards of 300 gigs a year travelling 10 hours between shows.

    Too right, and Slim even wrote a few songs about those communities and aboriginal issues in general.
