It's a INXS special this week:

INXS part 1: Andrew, Tim, Jon and Kirk

During a day of media interviews at Universal Music, Mediaweek's James Manning and Brenden Wood managed to get access to the band just before they were given quadruple platinum plaques celebrating their success this year as the biggest-selling Australian artist. The three Farriss brothers and Kirk Pengilly talked about their involvement with the Seven/Shine miniseries INXS: Never Tear Us Apart and what it did for the band and their catalog this year. Each of the members talks about their life in music now and Brenden Wood gets them to talk about their favourite INXS gig of all time – and they each choose a different performance.

INXS part 2: Manager Chris Murphy

We initially had just 20 minutes to spend with the legendary manager of INXS, but we ended up staying with Chris Murphy for just under 45 minutes as he talked about everything from helping the band with their initial investments when they started to earn big money, his work with Seven and Shine on the miniseries through to having to get the music world interested again in the INXS catalog when he returned to manage them. Murphy also mentions his family life and even his new organic egg business. There is plenty of fruity language, music business insights and plenty of laughs too.
