Chris Familton is a Sydney-based, Kiwi-born writer, DJ and musician. He has the music sites Doubtful Sounds and Post to Wire where he reviews, interviews, blogs, makes suggestions and recommendations, creates playlists – you know, all the things…
He’s also a publicist and promoter, creating local gigs – sometimes being on the bill as the between-sets DJ, a wrangler of talent, a keen supporter and listener of a wide range of music.
Before all of that, back in New Zealand, he was a member of the band Thorazine Shuffle.
Chris was one of the very first special guests for the Five Albums I’m Loving Right Now series – we’ve corresponded plenty over the years but this was our very first meeting. I was in Sydney recently to see Suzanne Vega and so I popped in to meet Chris. We enjoyed a couple of beers.
And this conversation.
I hope you enjoy it too.
