Darker With The Day

Nick Stephan


2:00 AM - 8:00 AM

Darkening the pre-dawn hours with a mix of experimental, underground and alternative music from Meanjin/Brisbane and beyond.




13 September, 2023

This week Darker With Day celebrates the 37th anniversary of the Know Your Product exhibition, a collaboration between The Institute of Modern Art, 4ZZZ and a host of local musicians to celebrate the early Brisbane punk scene of between 1976-1986. The Know Your Product exhibition was held between September 11th-27th in 1986. The exhibitions catalogue included a discography which I will be attempting to play in full, bar a few entries I was unable to locate.

To demonstrate that Meanjin/Brisbane continues to produce cutting edge bands, any time left after working through the exhibition discography will be filled with brand new local music, bring the show full circle and back to the current day
