Music Feeds Podcast Episode #100: Bluejuice

Written by Greg Moskovitch on August 27, 2014

The news that Bluejuice, one of Australia’s most beloved and irreverent homegrown bands, would be breaking up at the end of 2014 came as a shock to many Aussie music lovers. To help us cope a little better, Music Feeds caught up with singer Stavros Yiannoukas and got the inside story.

“Our manager had a conversation with us months ago, he’d got an email from Grinspoon’s manager saying their band was breaking up. And he thought it was a weird way to finish-up when you’ve been around for so long. So he thought it would be better for us to… go out on a high,” Stav explains.

“I had mentioned us finishing up after Act Your Age and the album company… people weren’t really ready for that,” Stavros reveals. “But no, [breaking up] hadn’t really been discussed. I don’t know many bands that actually talk about it along the way. We’re just not that well-planned,” he adds.

We also discuss the band’s upcoming retrospective album — the aptly titled Retrospectable out this September — their farewell tour, going platinum without knowing it, and what the members of Bluejuice will be doing after the farewell tour comes to its inevitable and unfortunate end.
