Recovery was a Saturday morning show on the ABC that aired from 1996 until 2000. Many of our readers were likely too young to have seen it, so I’m here to bring a few highlights. My memories told me that lots of good bands played and it’s cancellation was a travesty. Let me say now, having searched Youtube to find clips of the good things I remembered, music in the 1990s was absolute nonsense. Silverchair, Blink-182, Bodyjar, Grinspoon … many others I won’t bother to mention. A horrow show of mediocrity and insecurity. All bands playing in Sydney now are better than anything that appeared on Recovery, perhaps aside from the five included below. The disparity is just huge. Good to know we’re living in rich times.
With that revelation out of the way … the Top Five Things I Saw On Recovery.
3. The Avalanches
4. John Spencer Blues Explosion
