2004, Big Heavy Stuff had just released their fourth and final album, Dear Friends and Enemies. In the same year, the band appeared twice on triple j, recording both a Live at the Wireless performance as well as a moody and beautifully stripped back cover of Björk’s Hyperballad for Like a Version.

Love As Fiction Records is proud to release both performances for the first time in collaboration with Big Heavy Stuff, on the forthcoming album “Live at triple j 2004”, licensed thanks to the ABC.

The album features the entire Live at the Wireless recording of seven songs from Dear Friends and Enemies as well as Hyperballad, on limited edition vinyl. The Live at the Wireless recording has rarely been aired, only having been broadcast twice in 2004, and in the process of licensing the recordings it was found that the original tape had been recorded over. Fortunately, Nick from Big Heavy Stuff, ever the band’s archivist, had the foresight to obtain a flat transfer of the recording in 2004.

"This record is a document of a band at its peak. We’d finished our career defining album “Dear Friends And Enemies,” after spending at least a year seeing it through various creative stages. We couldn’t wait to share it with people. The Bjork cover was recorded after the tour and was the bands final recording to date.” – Nick Kennedy, 2024

The album art was designed by Matt W. Bayes and includes new photographs from renown photographer Sophie Howarth. The inner record labels feature a retro style design complementing the black and white theme of the record.
