Before Derrick Brown took to the One Night Wonders stage back in May, the night was opened by Anthony O’Sullivan and Jessica Alice, whose sets will be made available progressively over coming weeks.

“Across the stars and space and black, a crackle of microwaves and background radiation rushing down to me dormant as blank paper, calling listen. Listen hard as I announce my arrival.” Airbag is another piece from Anthony’s OK Computer series, a howl of birth and rebirth.

Anthony is a Melbourne performer of various stripes, raised on the Mornington Peninsula. He hosted the long-running southside poetry night The Spinning Room, and now runs Comedy Corner at Happy Palace.

Derrick’s first track from the night can be streamed here, and his full album can be downloaded here.
