The Return of the Guest Programmers...

ABC TV's "rage" first announced it's arrival - with blood-curdling screams of r-r-r-r-rage - back in 1987.The Guest Programmers arrived on the scene in 1990.

The guest Programmers are musicians who take on te daunting task of programming and presenting their own night of "rage"

Daunting? What? all you have to do is pick your favourite songs. Easy, right? Well, no.... Choosing the songs, the music, the videos which you most love, which have most influenced you, which most matter to you. Actually, harder than you might think.

Guest Programmers are handed the "rage" red book full of thousands of videos and asked to choose their 40.

Some love the 40 song challenge and tackle it with something close to devotion. Some, let's face it, tackle it with drunken, tired and emotional tour exhausted abandon. There are those who agonise over their choices, worried about choosing the perfect 40. Some keep changing their minds, adding songs, dropping songs; they just can't commit.

Some can't quite manage 40 songs, stall around 30, struggle, and struggle hard to pick more. Some bands - such as Sonic Youth and Tool - come up with a 100 and then have trouble cutting back. Public Enemy's Flava Flav - "I've never seen a video I didn't like" - just wanted to play everything.

Some approach Guest Programming with absolute seriousness, some with a absolute lack of seriousness. Those who saw Melbourne band TISM choose the opening title sequences of ABC TV's 7:00pm News, 7:30 Report, Four Corners and Lateline as their favourite music videos, closely followed by The Wiggles "Hot Potato, Hot Potato" and all of the songs of the Ted Mulry Gang, will know one of the bands we're talking about.

Somehow or other, all of the Guest Programmers produce a list. These lists - scribbled on everything from bar coasters, to room service menus, to hotel stationery, to the back of set lists, to the back of tour schedules, to plane tickets and boarding passes, to, on rare occasions, actual, typed sheets of paper - tend to have one thing in common: songs that reappear. Influentail, seminal, great songs that just keep coming back.

"rage" 2 kicks off with one of the most perennial of "rage" choices: The Jam "That's Entertainment". Enjoy it and enjoy "rage" 2: the Return of the Guest Programmers.

Narelle Gee, rage Series Producer
