What makes a good gig, great? You know the feeling… all of a sudden you truly bust loose, throw your hands up, punch your fist in the air, sing out loud, scream, you act like you’re possessed! Whether it’s chanting Casino anthems with the Philly Jays, jumping around like a crazy mother to Metronomy or getting lost in the heady vocal drone of Bill Callahan, whatever turns you on there’s no denying those exhilarating live music moments are rare, powerful and truly addictive.
Each week, Sydney’s FBi 94.5FM gets out amongst it, recording choice local sets to bring that live feeling home for you. Our listeners hear the best local and international artists in town by way of THE LIVE FEED. Now, for the first time we’ve crammed 18 of our favourite live and exclusive moments onto one CD. Warner Music Australia have partnered with FBi 94.5FM to bring you THE LIVE FEED. It’s a compilation dedicated to live music and community radio, two crucial components of Australia’s music industry.
All proceeds go back to keeping FBi alive & kicking it. So… who’s on it? Who isn’t!
