This isn’t directly related to my Greens campaign, but for anyone who might be interested, the link below is to a radio interview I did with 612 ABC regarding the decision by one of my bands (The Mouldy Lovers) to pull out of the G20 Cultural Celebrations program. As a side note, I feel I should emphasise that I don’t think it’s cool (or constructive) to vilify or pressure musicians for taking paid work of this nature. These are not simple issues, and each band/musician should be free to make their own decision about what’s right for them.
