On the program, Eamon Sandwith of The Chats!The Chats are based in Brisbane Australia and formed during their high school days. They have toured America, and Europe, playing Reading and Leeds festivals. They unfortunately had to cancel US tour dates for 2020 but are beginning to tour in their native country and we hope to see them here as soon as possible.
The rise of Australian shed-rock trio The Chats is a phenomenal story and their new LP “High Risk Behaviour” is universally hailed as one of the best releases of the year. Today founder Eamon Sandwith talks band history, career inflection points, garnering famous fans, collectable vinyl and next steps for the Queensland group. If you like records, just starting a collection or are an uber-nerd with a house-full of vinyl, this is the podcast for you. Nate Goyer is The Vinyl Guide and discusses all things music and record-related.
With songs like Smoko, Pub Feed and Mum stole my darts, Sunshine Coast band The Chats have very quickly gained worldwide acclaim. And now they are coming back to play where it all began. Bass guitarist and lead singer Eamon Sandwith had an exclusive chat with Matt in the lead up to their much-anticipated performance at the Airwaves Festival held at the Nambour Showgrounds in July.
