Sydney musician John Kennedy’s new album Raining Treasure celebrates the golden era of Australian independent music from the late ‘70’s and the 80's. Kennedy compiled a list of classic indie songs (and some obscurities) from that era and with his band, John Kennedy's 68 Comeback Special, has recorded songs from The Go-Betweens, The Triffids, The Scientists and many more. Some of these acts were contemporaries. Some were inspirations. All had some great songs.

The idea for this release sprang from the 2017 album, JFK and the Midlife Crisis. It was a concept album about a middle aged Sydney musician looking back over his life to the glory days of the Australian indie music scene. It explored the joys and disappointments of being part of the thriving music culture that was centered around Surry Hills at that time. The logical next step was to cover some of the great songs from that fertile period. These songs take you back to the Trade Union Club and the Strawberry Hills Hotel.

Legendary Australian musician and producer Cub Callaway and the Revolutionaires is the special guest support for this show. Cub was a member of the Saints and helped found the New Christs. He also produced Ed Keupper's classic Electrical Storm which is one of the songs featured on the new Raining Treasure album.
