The Whitlams classic “Eternal Nightcap” turns 25 this September, and the band will mark the anniversary by playing the album in its entirety, followed by a Greatest Hits set, in a series of one-off concerts around the country.
The album single-handedly brought the piano back onto the youth airwaves in 1997, and captured the hearts of a generation by describing a whole decade of its life - the mad, emotional, love-hungry contagion of its late teens and 20s.
In ABC Radio’s “My Favourite Album” poll of 2006, “Eternal Nightcap” was the fourth highest Australian entry at no. 27, and the album’s reputation as a cultural touchstone has only firmed over the years, with Rolling Stone last year placing it no. 24 in their 200 Best Australian Albums of All Time list.
Joining the show is Custard, fellow traveller from the 90s, whose songs such as “Apartment”, “Nice Bird” and “Girls Like That (Don't Go For Guys Like Us)” are lodged deep in our collective memory.
