“Love alters not with his brief hours and weeks, but bears it out even to the edge of doom” wrote Shakespeare, no doubt shortly after his beloved Anne Hathaway cranked a live Yoko Ono double LP on the gramophone. This week the Condition Mint team discuss the sonic conflicts we experience as part of a loving relationship and how to navigate them with or without the aid of a magical eye removing pixie plugged into the Spotify matrix.

Love Will Tear Us Apart - Joy Division (1980)

From: OK Computer (1997)

You’ll find out all you ever wanted to know about Mick, Keith and the lads along with plenty of stuff you probably didn’t - including what band member favours the taste of rodent, what’s gone wrong with Bobby Keys long game and who was the most high profile victim of the Bill Wyman flipper.

Radical change can be a great thing if it involves the wealthy and guillotines but does it have a place in music? That's the question on the Condition Mint team's mind as they discuss artists that have swerved violently out of their lane.

What’s that bulging in Santa’s sack? It’s only Condition Mint’s hotly anticipated end of year extravaganza!! Jaso and Fox discuss their 2018 highlights, lowlights, ups, downs, ins and outs. It’s part wistful look back on a simpler time, part hard nosed investigation into sonic listening patterns and all good time fun celebrating the festive season.

It turns out the real 70s guitar tone,... was love.

Happy Festivus from the Condition Mint team.

Tired of running with the “in” crowd? The Condition Mint team hears you. Which is why this episode focuses on genres “the man” doesn’t want you to consider. You know what else “the man” doesn’t what you thinking about? Jaso’s hypothetical behaviour in a Portland Op Shop and Foxys checkout preferences at Bathurst Coles. But too bad - It’s all here!!!

Condition Mint put on their Sunday best and hit the pews for some pious podcastery! Yes, Fox and Jaso are sharing with you their favourite religion themed numbers. Lest you think this is the episode that might win over the local vicar or padre, please be forewarned there are also graphic descriptions of unseemly violence at the funeral of eminent Portland labrador Mr Flash and acknowledgement of the stunning accuracy of the Condition Mint Sex Pest radar.

November 22, 2018

Condition Mint gracefully peel of a classic cover drive to the boundary and bring up a thoroughly deserved 50. Episodes that is - Who would have believed such a feat were possible? To celebrate Jaso and Fox laud pioneers and ground breakers who, like them, paved the way with their genius and talent so that others could follow. They also throw some shade at a fictitious 70s rock and roll police sketch artist and talk about Dr Falbio’s wang.
