Caloundra Music Festival October 2021

Caloundra Music Festival: It was my pleasure to play at the Caloundra Music Festival on the 1st of October 2021.

Julian Munyard Sun Stage CMF

Julian Munyard (October 1st, 2021)

Set List

This is our first time playing a festival together and I’ve really been looking forward to being here with you all today, I’m Julian Munyard and the songs you’re about to hear are from an EP released last year, I’m Julian Munyard and I hope you all enjoy the next hour of music lets do it.

Ding

Thank you, (drink some water)

In 2 weeks a new song is coming out and you guys are the first to hear it, quite frankly I’m over the moon about it. It’s called Don’t You Love Me Yet. Lets get it 

Don’t you love me yet

I’m going to take this moment to introduce the band, to the right of me we have Jack Curry on Keyboard, Bakani Kombanie on percussion and vocals, Sam Ayling on Bass, and finally Max on the tubs. Alright, 

Treasure Chest

Over to the left of me is a little stall with some merch, we got some really cool stickers you can grab after the show. This song is called okay.

Okay

Bakani and I often play at a local bar called sneaky baron in Maroochydore, and the song we’re about to play is out favourite number to pull out of the bag so today we thought we’d play it. 

Cover 1 (Hey Ya)

As I said earlier I’m releasing a new song in two weeks, but I’ve been writing a lot of new content. and this song is about a guy who wakes up to find a man taking photographs of him outside his house.

Camera Man

Thank you. Talk in Pictures is a EP I released last year, which was born from being in and out of quarantine most of the year, and the next couple of songs are from that EP. This one is Harley Benson

Harley Benson

I wrote this number about the lies that media can tell through the hole in your living room wall. It’s called Television 

Television

This is another new song, I heard a guy talk about songs with longer melodies, so instead of writing a song with 2 3 or 4 chords, I opened to the idea of using 6 t or 8 chords in a progression, and this is the result. This is steaming cup.

Steaming Cup

Sing along if you know this song

Cover 2 (LSD)

A few years ago when I was 14, I wrote this song, and I always played it acousticly, just me and my guitar, but today were playing it with my beloved band, and it feels like a brand new song. It’s called chasing the wind.

Chasing the Wind

As I said earlier, the talk in pictures EP was born from last years lockdowns and so forth, and this track is about being stuck on online school and really wanting to surfing with my friends.

Surfing

Thank you. This is an unreleased track, and its about a Purple Man. 

Purple Melvin

Don’t forget to check out out Merch table!! Thank you and goodbye!

Encore: Cover 3* (Don’t go breaking my heart)

The Julian Munyard Band: Beerwah Hotel on Tuesday August 10, 2021

Live at the Beerwah Hotel on Tuesday August 10, 2021

Tuesday August 10, 2021

The Musos once more enjoyed the Julian Munyard band (Julian, Bakani. Jack, Sam, and Max) on Tuesday night. Thank you to this youthful outfit, brimming with talent, for their commitment, presenting such a tight show. Players two and three times their age could certainly pick up some tips! After a superb set of originals (Julian played his album plus two new songs) the band was pressed for an encore and shocked me (and perhaps others) by performing the old Kenny Rogers classic the Gambler! I have nothing against country music of course and this song with its “ace that we might keep” (“every hand’s a winner and every hand’s a loser…”) has a lot going for it. The band’s version was entertaining too, so it probably says more about me that I should have anticipated something perhaps more recent or at least closer in style to Julian’s own writing. Good on you mate, keep dealing out the surprises…

on the receiver, I watch you tonight
Show me who I am

I watched you, you taught me
and now you won’t let go
la la, la la la la

Harley Benson

Harley Benson sings As he runs from the picture that he painted of himself but What he doesn’t see, Is his feet looking forward but his eyes looking backward And it doesn’t seem, that he’s conscious of himself or the clouds raining down on him Patterns in the sky Paint pictures in the clouds and he’s running from the sound that Keeps him up at night, the swaying of the trees and the washing of the sea Oh the sea Time, time Live your life and hope that it’s alright Right Nothing left to say except it’s fine Fine For you to keep on living like a crime Crime So ill just wait for you to pass on by Though his phone don’t ring He’s waiting for the call that might cushion up his fall And what his friends don’t see, is that he’s going far away to a place they don’t understand Even when he walks, He leaves footprints in the sand cuz he isn’t from this land and He awaits that call Tell him Harley go back home cuz this place is not for you Not for you Time, time Live your life and hope that it’s alright Right Nothing left to say except it’s fine Fine For you to keep on living like a crime Crime So ill just sit and wait till you are mine

Harley Benson

Harley Benson sings
As he runs from the picture that he painted of himself but
What he doesn’t see,
Is his feet looking forward but his eyes looking backward
And it doesn’t seem, that he’s conscious of himself or the clouds raining down on him

Patterns in the sky
Paint pictures in the clouds and he’s running from the sound that
Keeps him up at night, the swaying of the trees and the washing of the sea
Oh the sea

Time, time
Live your life and hope that it’s alright
Right
Nothing left to say except it’s fine
Fine
For you to keep on living like a crime
Crime
So ill just wait for you to pass on by

Though his phone don’t ring
He’s waiting for the call that might cushion up his fall
And what his friends don’t see, is that he’s going far away to a place they don’t understand

Even when he walks,
He leaves footprints in the sand cuz he isn’t from this land and
He awaits that call
Tell him Harley go back home cuz this place is not for you
Not for you

Time, time
Live your life and hope that it’s alright
Right
Nothing left to say except it’s fine
Fine
For you to keep on living like a crime
Crime
So ill just sit and wait till you are mine

OKAY Lyrics by Julian Munyard

All around me
People look the same
Nothings different
We’re going up in flames, flames

Play the game Jane
Its gonna drive you insane
Pick your cards Betty
And I forget my name

Okay
Okay
Okay
O okay

Okay now you know its no better
I’ll go home and try read your letter
I’ll still go to sleep tonight

I try to make it clear,
But its all a dream
Just what I say
Ain’t what I mean
When I’m feeling blue
My head feels green
Just like a 3d clue
Its all the same
All the same
All the same
All the sameeee

Okay now you know its no better
I’ll go home and try read your letter
I’ll still go to sleep tonight

The Stoke Sauce Radio Show on Anonradio.net

Stoke Sauce Radio Antenna
Stoke Sauce Radio Antenna

The Stoke Sauce Radio Show is an artistic vehicle where I share my thoughts about the music and melodies I have been listening to during the week. I also elaborate on some of my ideas, experiences and intentions about the music I have been making.

The first episode of the Stoke Sauce Radio Show took shape on the 17th or March 2021 when I sat down and recorded it in one single sitting, without any real focus other than a few ideas and intentions in my head. I liked the first episode but it would be almost another month before I would record and release the second episode. Neither of these first two episodes were aired until the show went live on Anonradio.net on the 18th of May 2021.

What is A NON radio? Anonradio is a loose collection of radio artists and computer hackers and hobbyists, who congregate at www.SDF.org to listen and comment on each others shows or simply to chat with one another while they either listen (or choose not to) listen to shows on anonRADIO.net

In their own words they explain themselves thus:

“All DJs on aNONradio.net are members of the SDF Public Access UNIX System Community. Please join our growing online community of free software authors, teachers, librarians, students, researchers, hobbyists, computer enthusiasts, artists, musicians, and the aural and the visually impaired. We fight for and promote the distribution and development of free software and the non-commercialisation of the Internet. Visit sdf.org for more information.”

I’ve committed (in my own mind) to doing one episode a week until the end of 2021 but who knows it may continue indefinitely because I enjoy the weekly commitment of producing “a musical event” each week at same time.

The Anonradio Archives: The anonradio archives go all the way back to 2015, which means you can listen and re-listen to any of the past shows at any time, and there is no agenda or advertising for marketing taking or getting in the way of your show and should you choose to, you can remain relatively anonymous and hide behind a pseudonym or some sort or another.

Have I mentioned COM? COM is short for COMmode” it’s an application which exists only on the SDF servers after you’ve logged into their unix server. The COMmunity use COM chat with each together online.

Using COM is little like being in a big dinner party and where you can hear all the conversations going on at the same time, but you can still hold a conversation with the person next to you.

If you want to use COM you will need to TELNET or SSH to SDF servers, then login to the SDF server and then start up COM or any other UNIX tools and services which exist on their servers.

Yah! It’s a steep learning curve, but if you try you will be able to figure out how it works, and when you do get there you’ll be “free” from the corporate social manipulations which exists elsewhere.

On SDF. You can be a part of a world which existed long before the internet arrived, so in a way it’s like going bad to the purest form of shared computing and communication, long before the internet, before email social media began, or ebay or google began.

Enough about SDF, this is the Stoke Sauce Radio Show!
