Episode 36: Full Steam Ahead Across The Atlantic

February 22, 2018

Condition Mint take on the straight forward task of explaining the differences between English and American rock music. Unsurprisingly this is done with a minimum fuss, with time left over for a shoutout to Lithgow TAFE and Jaso to declare the cowbell the least likely percussion instrument to suffer from mental health issues.

Episode 31: Don’t Tell Daddy Vol 2

January 18, 2018

This week the Condition Mint team put shame to one side and share with you their dirty musical secrets - I.e. songs they are embarrassed to like. It’s a deep dive into territory generally ignored on the podcast but fortunately, plenty of the usual nonsense is also discussed such as the location of the Crabcore Nebula and how Francis Rossi would fare competing in the Stawell Gift.

Episode 30: I Think You Have The Wrong Song Sir

January 11, 2018

Condition Mint continue their commitment to rewarding maverick thinking in all it’s forms by dedicating this podcast to unusual cover song choices. Who would expect any less from the intellects that use the Battle of Blenheim to explain a rhythm pattern or quote a fictional DJ Shaman to admonish a heavy metal band.

January 4, 2018

Join us in the Condition Mint throne room to help celebrate Oz alt rock royalty in the form of You Am I. Fox and Jase gently tap their ceremonial sword upon the shoulder of Timmy Rogers for his tireless services to music and the arts. But wait - They also poke him in the arse with the the sword of mild criticism, for in the Ministry of the Minterior - no blind eyes are turned and no beg pardons offered.

What's that you hear? Is it the sound of your favourite sonic Santas tiptoeing across the rooftop? IT IS!! Fox and Jase are heading down your digital chimney, brimming with Christmas cheer in this tinsel laden episode. Well it’s Christmas cheer or Duffy’s infectious armpit rash but either way it’s too late to change course. We chat about our sonic Jesus Christs whatever the hell that means.
