Join Matty O on Triple M Homegrown for an exclusive chat with Kav Temperley and Joel Quartermain of Eskimo Joe. This episode celebrates their latest single, 'The First Time,' and the kickoff of an extensive acoustic tour across Australia. We delve into how Eskimo Joe has woven nostalgia into their new music, with a unique lyric video that showcases a montage of clips from their remarkable 27-year career, including music videos, behind-the-scenes footage, and electrifying live performances.

As winners of eight ARIA Awards from 35 nominations, Kav and Joel reflect on the highs and lows of their journey through the Australian music scene. They share heartfelt stories from the ARIA Awards night in 2004—where they watched Jet take the spotlight—a pivotal moment that fueled their passion and inspired their hit 'Black Fingernails, Red Wine.'

The episode also offers an insider's view of Eskimo Joe's current tour with rock titans Live and Incubus, revealing what it's like to share the stage with some of the biggest names in rock music. Kav and Joel discuss the evolution of their songwriting and production processes, providing fans with a glimpse into the creative dynamics that have sustained their success for nearly three decades.

Listeners will get an exclusive rundown of Eskimo Joe's upcoming national acoustic theatre tour, which spans from April to July. The tour promises intimate performances at iconic venues across the country, featuring collaborations with artists like Dan Sultan, Josh Pike, Angie March, Scott Darlow, and more. These shows are set to highlight a different side of Eskimo Joe's music with stripped-back, acoustic versions of their best-loved songs.

In addition to exploring their current projects, the podcast takes fans on a nostalgic trip down 'Memory Lane,' revisiting some of the most unforgettable moments in Eskimo Joe's career. From touring with The Offspring and surviving on-stage mishaps to humorous encounters backstage and their electrifying performance at the AFL Grand Final, these stories paint a vivid picture of a band that has not only survived but thrived in the ever-changing music industry.

The episode wraps up with a game of 'Write, Party, Dinner,' where Kav and Joel decide which music legends—Bruce Springsteen, Prince, and Elton John—they would choose to write a song with, party with, and invite home for dinner.
