hanging out with audiophiles

Sep 16, 2019


This is the commonwealth edition.

Like the Ashes of Audio it’s UK vs Australia. 

Justin Stanley FINALLY finds his way to the pod. 

First and foremost Mr Stanley is my friend. We’ve been on some serious adventures in our times.

We were on the road together in 2006, where we met touring with Beck. 

I was opening and J.S. was in the Beck band and KILLING. Also he happens to be a prince of man.

A TRUE legend. A humble badass and a VERY experienced audio king. 

He’s worked with everyone from Leonard Cohen to Prince and even a little Lidell along the way.

Husband of the wonderful Nikka Costa and Dad to two incredible young humans, Justin is just a joy.


So happy to have him on. 

He surprised me by driving us both over to Barefoot in LA. It’s owned by Eric Valentine. WHAT a place.

We sat and played on the piano Stevie used on Songs in the Key of Life, Talking Book and so on. 

I mean COME ON! 

It was all too much. Such a sweet surprise that’ll stay with me for ages.


Here’s to you Justin! You’re a class act.




Music for the show is from Sydney Australia.. so apt. It was clearly meant to be. 

The band is called Colourfields. And the tracks that appear in the show are from an album called “Body Objects” 

Superb stuff!

In the 54th Nitty I get into the mysterious world of reversing reversed effects.

Forwarding the backward.

A little time travel. Also apt for this show with Justin. 


Here we go!
