Wednesday, 8 February 2023 - 11:00pm to Thursday, 9 February 2023 - 1:30am
This One's Introduced By... on 3CR

Peter Farnan introduced the tracks from his album Pesky Bones volume one on and this one's introduced by... Nearly 2 years ago and available to stream from the 3cr website. The album a collection of songs dealing with accumulated experience, memory, age, sex, family, mortality, aching limbs, regret, transcendence and raging against the dying light. Peter wrote the songs and utilised some of australia's greatest vocalisers including Paul Kelly, Deborah Conway, Charles Jenkins, Tim Rogers and Ali Barter to sing the lead vocals on a different track each.

Peter Farnan has maintained a creative career and is back with a new album titled home, the songs and his voice are terrific returning to his art-pop music, which is both idiosyncratic and universal, deep and melodic echoing some of the artists - The Beatles , Talking Heads, and XTC - who first inspired the musical life he's led. The songs on home wrestle with the passing of time, buried histories, community, political populism, pernicious religion, the end of the world, the end of the street, the start of something special, mortality and blissful release. They're both reassuring and slightly unsettling, humorous, catchy and dark.

Peter farnan joins Dr Gonzo to present his album home.
