Les Thomas – Show #283 (part 2), 18 June 2023

Katie’s guest today is Narrm/Melbourne singer-songwriter, activist and music writer Les Thomas. He and Katie chat about the power and irresistible spirit of Uncle Kutcha Edwards (and we listen to Kutcha’s new song about language), their mutual admiration for Kerryn Fields, the value Les takes from his friendships with fellow artists, his starring role in the Weeping Willows’ video for ‘House of Sin’, Les’s new single ‘Man on Fire’, and more. Les also performs what he describes as ‘a Sunday morning wake-up song about overthrowing systems of oppression’ live in the studio. Here is the playlist:

  • Mother Tongue – Kutcha Edwards
  • Dream Woman – Gabriella Cohen
  • Bring Down Babylon (live in the studio) – Les Thomas
  • Atlantis – Kerryn Fields
  • Man on Fire – Les Thomas
  • The Murrumbidgee – Neil Murray
  • Melville Rose – Jasper Bell & the Double Dole String Band
  • Oh, Won’t You Save Me – Great Aunt
