Deputies take over the airwaves. Deputy PM Anthony Albanese, Deputy Opposition Leader Julie Bishop and Deputy Greens Leader Adam Bandt are guest-programming ABC's music video show Rage tomorrow night, as part of a last-ditch effort to: a) prove politicians are human beings who enjoy popular music; and b) show they're down with the youth of today.
Bishop has the most eclectic playlist (Red Hot Chili Peppers, Beyonce, The Easybeats), Bandt's is befitting of an inner-Melbourne hipster (Arcade Fire, My Bloody Valentine, MGMT) and Albo has surprisingly good taste (PJ Harvey, The Clash, The Pixies). The full playlist will be up at the Rage website sometime this afternoon. -- Sophie Benjamin
