Epi 177: Mark Pellington; Film Director of Beautiful Girl. Part One
há 3 dias
59:51Famed USA Video, Film, Doco and TV Director, Mark Pellington joins INXS: Access all Areas to dive deep on his fantastic video for 1993 INXS single “Beautiful Girl” amidst many other broader conversations. Having gotten his start via MTV in 1983, Mark was at the forefront of when the video clip explosion was at the epicenter of the watching audience zeitgeist. Working initially with artists such as Leonard Cohen, De La Soul and PM Dawn, it was his future work with Pearl Jam’s “Jeremy” video that brought Mark’s unbridled talents into the forefront of the music industry heavy hitters. As such, he went on a peerless run Directing for U2 (One), Public Enemy (Shut em Down), REM (Drive), Alice In Chains (Rooster) plus Springsteen, Keane, The Flaming Lips and obviously our beloved INXS. Interestingly, it was INXS that would bring him his sole Grammy nomination eventually losing out to Peter Gabriel’s “Steam” video (Urghhhh). Mark generously opens up how personal grief informed much of creative ideas and we get to dive deep on his work with other artists, feature films and his love of the Australian music industry culminating a cliffhanger moment regarding INXS’ lack of recognition by the Rock Hall of Fame Committee that shall leave you clamouring for an early release of Part Two. So sit back and enjoy the iconic words of Mark Pellington. https://www.inxsaccessallareas.com/
Epi 176: “INXS face the new Millennium”!
48:52With the year 2000 upon us, the world was entering an exciting new century. Music, cinema, pop culture and the arts were evolving and INXS were starting to take bigger steps in a world without Michael Hutchence. With the dust settling on Michael’s posthumous album release, INXS took the left field move of signing up to the Tim Rice Spectacular Concert Series through Australia. Joining recognized artists such as Iva Davies (Icehouse), David Essex (Rock On) and a bevy of renowned Australian artists re-interpreting Tim’s amazing back catalogue of songs. With confidence slowly returning as an entity, the band continued to surprise teaming up with Jon Stevens (formerly Noiseworks) for two impromptu but sold out gigs in Melbourne and Sydney. With fans traveling as far as Chicago and the UK to attend these gigs, the level of passion and pride at seeing a full-set INXS gig again was palpable! Combined with some private corporate gigs, the band made their long awaited international return headlining the closing ceremony of the 2000 Olympic Games with a rollicking updated version of What you Need that had the crowd on their feet. So with small steps, INXS were getting their mojo back in a steady and incremental way against the odds.

Epi 175 Part 1: Alex Proyas; Kissing the Dirt and Hollywood 2024!
1:03:01Alex Proyas: Kissing the Dirt and Hollywood 2024! We are pleased to have famed Director and true auteur Alex Proyas on today’s episode of INXS: Access all Areas to share fascinating insights and anecdotes around the filming in Coober Pedy, South Australia of “Kiss the Dirt” video in early 1986. ARIA award nominated, this led to iconic videos for the emerging Crowded House band’s “Don’t dream it’s over” and “Better be home soon” hits that created the impetus for Alex to go overseas and pursue his ultimate passion being “feature films”. A true sci-fi disciple, Alex went onto work with famed actors Brandon Lee, William Hurt, Kiefer Sutherland, Will Smith, Chadwick Bozeman, Jennifer Connelly and Nicolas Cage in iconic productions such as The Crow, Dark City, I Robot and Gods of Egypt, Alex is a true surrealist and auteur to his craft of making meaningful and impactful cinematic art for all the right reasons. We explore the interesting parallels between both the music and film industry and how one often informs the other in good and bad ways. Passionate, purposeful and occasionally political, Alex truly opens up about a range of issues that affect the way we consume content and how things could be better, and for this, we are grateful for his stance and passion.

Epi 173: Michael Hutchence Solo Album: Part 2 - Song by song review
1:42:46Welcome to 2024 to all of our wonderful bronze, silver, gold and platinum patrons and loyal listeners. We kick off the new year (pardon the pun) with Part 2 our important deep dive into Michael Hutchence’s posthumous solo release with a song-by-song review. Following part one, we see how Michael stretches his musical capabilities and range both lyrically and sonically to great effect. Haunting, open and often literal, Michael’s lyrics have never been more specific and brutal. We discuss each track and rate them accordingly, with our unique criterion. Sonically lush, guitar-wise, often dirty and emotionally heartbreaking, I recommend listening to this album for the healing and the true insight into what Michael was truly feeling in his final years. This episode of the INXS AAA podcast is completed with additional news items and details about our competitions just launched. We nudge the 100-minute mark, so this action-packed episode may be your own two parter!

Epi 172: Michael Hutchence Solo Album Part One.
1:01:29After 2 years of mourning, copious amounts of gossip innuendo and grief, finally INXS and Michael Hutchence fans have something meaningful and strangely healing to celebrate. This posthumous release of 13 unique and varied tracks were originally the brainchild of a phone call (make that two) from Michael in 1995 to legendary UK Gang of Four band leader Andy Gill. With the duo residing in the comfortable, calm and tranquil surrounds of the South of France, an environment of immense creativity and teamwork was established leading to a vast amount of songs and demos laid down. Knowing Co-Production support and proper studio surrounds were required, enter famed US alternative Producer and musician Danny Saber plus both the legendary Peter Gabriel Real World Studios amidst many others. The songs contained a lyrical honesty, earnestness and soundscape unheard of from Michael before, which given his 1995 surroundings, was to be expected. With no timelines or management interference, this self-financed labour of love had no release date time pressures, hence was parked when Michael returned to INXS commitments in 1996 and 1997. But with Michael’s unfortunate passing in November 1997, the integrity of these recordings were salvaged by an “angel from Los Angeles” in Danny Saber to whom we shall all be eternally grateful. So sit back and enjoy what a monumental task it was to simply get this album to the release phase plus the circumstances and facts that lead to one of Michael’s greatest recording efforts. Love and peace Join the rest of the INXS uber fans https://www.inxsaccessallareas.com https://www.change.org/p/induct-inxs
Epi 171: INXS 1999 with Sananda Maitreya/ Terence Trent D’Arby
1:00:29Having had over 18 months to process the passing of Michael Hutchence, INXS were presented with the unique opportunity to spearhead the opening of Stadium Australia. The venue that would in the year 2000, be the home of the Sydney Olympic Games. With ex Australian cricketing icon Dean Jones putting the deal together, INXS were proud to be the lead musical act that preceded the Australian Socceroos playing the FIFA All-Stars on June 12th, 1999 with over 90,000 spectators packing the venue. All they needed was a lead singer!!! Easier said than done. Enter famed USA soul, pop and R&B vocalist Sananda Maitreya then know as Terence Trent Darby, who some 10 years earlier, “came like a comet” (hello The Waterboys) onto the music scene with his 10,000,000 + Introducing the Hardline debut album. Was this to be a one-off? A rent-try-buy arrangement or some other modus operandi. Tune in to INXS: Access all Areas to find out all the answers to the above questions and also embrace in what was an unlikely musical union, albeit just for one night!! Love and peace https://www.inxsaccessallareas.com
