DJ Albo Has Excellent Music Taste, Check Out The Anthony Albanese DJ Playlist

As well as Hunters & Collectors, the Albo playlist included songs from The Humming birds, Celibate Rifles and The Falling Joys. “My taste reflects mainly 1980’s and 90’s independent music, with an emphasis on bands I saw live when the live music scene was vibrant and thriving,” Albo told Noise11 earlier this week.

Seymour is pleased with the Albo choice of Hunters & Collectors song. “Good on him,” Mark told Noise11. “I must see if I can track him down at some point. He has got a sense of humour. He has a quick wit. We need that. He’s someone who can think on his feet”.

When DJ Albo decides to go on a national tour, Mark says he could be interested in the support slot.

Mark Seymour will release is 9th album ‘Mayday’ next Friday, May 29, 2015.
