It turns out that the Honourable Anthony Albanese, the Member for Grayndler, has remarkable good taste in music.
DJ Albo was a DJ for a night last night in Melbourne. Albo spun his favourite songs at a fundraiser for the Member for Scullin, Andrew Giles MP at the Bella Union in Calrton.
The Anthony Albanese playlist was heavily focused on some great Aussie indie bands of the 80s and 90s including The Hummingbirds, Spiderbait, The Saints, Fall Joys and Celibate Rifles.
“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,” DJ Albo tells Noise11.com.
The Member For Scullin posted about the event on his Facebook page this morning. “Thanks to everyone who came last night, to support Labor in Scullin and to hear Anthony Albanese MP’s tracks.
I had a blast, and reckon others might’ve too. And we’re much better placed to fight Tories,” Andrew Giles wrote.
