Nutrition for yr devices and yr body brain.
Friday January the 28th ~
Prior to the Open Air Cinema screening of The Matrix Resurrections in the Botanic Gardens you can hear a windswept aquatic set of serendipitous binary bytes to get you in the mood. 6 til 8.30PM.
Cinephobes might prefer to join me immediately afterwards down in The Rocks at the Best Bar in Australasia - Maybe Sammy where, staffing allowing, I intend to go head-to-head with co-owner and shit-stirrer Stefano Catino on the decks. There's a chance of some semblance of class earlier but later is looking like wall-to-wall Richard Cheese and My Dick frankly. Naturally entry is utterly free.
Saturday January the 29th ~
Saturday sees the only Jack Off under my auspices for the next fortnight sally forth on the streams and airwaves between 3 and 5PM on FBi Radio.
Afterwards I'll be spinning swirls of sound from the front bar of The Paddington to all spaces above and beyond. That's free for all from 8 til midnight.

Wednesday January the 19th ~
Set out for far horizons as Swingin' at the Speakeasy rides a sheep out back for a free all-DJ edition. Pia on deck/s from 7, myself from 10.
Friday January the 21st ~
Rotate yr face as a five-hour-long song cycle unfolds gratis at the Allawah Hotel from 7PM.
Saturday January the 22nd ~
After the style idyll of superb stand-in Jonny Seymour recedes like a summer tide you are once again left suspiciously sniffing the Eau Du Mangrove Mud that is Monsieur Merde for Jack Off on FBi Radio between 3 and 5PM.
Afterwards I'll scrub up reel nice and ascend the golden stairs (and lift) to Dean and Nancy on 22 - shelling out free soft-shoe shuffles for the high-borne from sunset at 8 til well past midnight.
Super sucker saviours for the silly social seen.
Wednesday January the 12th ~
Swingin' at the Speakeasy pairs live music (from The Roslyns this week) with vintage deejay sets from Pia Andersen between 7 and 10, before I spin out til close at around 1 or 2AM. It's always free.

Open Air Cinema has been a revelation to me. Until now I'd never witnessed it's scale and beauty. Playing there, through what must be nearly 50 speakers across a waterside site almost half a kilometre long, is a profound pleasure.
This week I've the opportunity to provide a musical entrée to the new version of Dune, which sold out at the Sydney Film Festival. If you join me from 6PM to enjoy the sunset prior to the screening I'm positive you'll understand my relishing this role.
Saturday January the 15th ~
Saturday's a strange one. Tremendously excited at the prospect of performing on the hallowed ground of the Brick Pits at Sydney Park for Heaps Gay as part of King Street Crawl, I solicited my salutary stand-in Jonny Seymour to host Jack Off in my place. Last time this handover was to happen COVID got in the way. So it is again, with the whole vast festival indefinitely postponed.
Then I was offered a gig, at the same time as my show, around the corner from the station in the Backyard at The Alex. Needing money after having all of my late December and New Years gigs cancelled I decided to work simultaneous to the show and leave it in Jonny's more than capable hands, happy that he'd have the opportunity to broadcast after a last-minute close contact isolation situation interfered a month back.
You'll be able to choose yr own adventure come 3PM: Jonny on air or me outdoors. Both will be fresh and free. If you really wanna go the whole hog come to the pub first then stream the show on-demand later!
2022: Two funny two die for. A 2020 vision. A gas.
Friday January the 7th ~
Keep yr cool despite the infernal, internal and external temperatures in the Botanic Gardens - for the new season of Open Air Cinema, kicking off with the latest James Bond flick No Time To Die. As the sun sinks I'll be spinning suitable cinematic songs between 6 and 8PM. This will sell out!
Afterwards join me from 9 til after midnight at Maybe Sammy as we exorcise the demons that have beset this summer with a full frontal attack of defiant energy, sheer sass and vaulting joy.
Saturday January the 8th ~
After cutting up New Years Day with a perverted pop pastiche of televisual field recording fragments and sonic detritus Jack Off returns to semi-regular status as a sizzling eruption of aberration and adulation between 3 and 5PM on FBi Radio.
Thereafter I will continue to rub salt in the wounds of naysayers and hope-betrayers by serving up a swish yet sweaty set of hipshakers in the sky-high paradise that is Dean and Nancy on 22. Book now and gather atop the tower as pastel hues bathe the best bar beyond Sammy, from 8 til late. Both gigs free!
