Lyrics by Kate Streader

Relive the glory days of Saturday morning television.

As part of the month of Ausmusic, the ABC’s 90s musical institution Recovery will be relaunched as a one-hour documentary. Of course it wouldn’t be Recovery without Dylan Lewis at the helm, he will therefore take his rightful place as host for Recovery: music and chaos.

Lewis will take viewers back in time to revisit some of the best antics, interviews and performances from the four-year series, joined by co-hosts Jane Gazzo, Leigh Whannell and the ever-mysterious The Enforcer.

With the original cohort, Recovery: music and chaos will also feature guest appearances from a host of musicians including Tim Rogers, Bernard Fanning, Killing Heidi, members of Silverchair, Spiderbait, Regurgitator, Something for Kate, Magic Dirt, Jebediah, The Living End, The Superjesus and many more. others.

“Working on Recovery back then was awesome. It was crazy, loose and so much fun. Putting together this rockumentary was a nostalgic bliss for me and I can’t wait for old and new fans to experience it. said Lewis in a statement.

Recovery: music and chaos will screen twice in November on ABC, resuming its old 9 a.m. slot on Saturday, November 23, and will hit the screen on Wednesday, November 27 at 9 p.m. with an uncut version.

For those looking for a little more nostalgia, the ABC will also be adding Recovery archival footage on iview and YouTube, including extended interviews and full performances.

To grab Recovery: music and chaos on ABC on Saturday, November 23 at 9 a.m. and Wednesday, November 27 at 9 p.m.
