Episode 92

This week we celebrate the one year anniversary of that time Michele saw Screeching Weasel, The Queers and The Mr T Experience on the same bill. Why is this noteworthy? Cos these kinds of shenanigans just wouldn’t happen in Australia. Hell, we couldn’t even successfully get Screeching Weasel to tour here on their own let alone be blessed with the likes of the MTX and the Queers. Woe is us. So what we did was celebrate by playing bands that were released through the Berkeley, California label, Lookout! Records. That’s right, every single record we played on this week’s show is a Lookout! Records release and it’s all awesome! Seriously, you’d be hard pressed to find a better playlist than this.¬†Yep. Oh, and Michele reviews the Suicide Squad movie just for kicks.¬†Listen in right now by clicking on THIS LINK.

Episode 91

The latest episode is here and it features an interview I have been chasing for years. Ever since this podcast was started we have been playing Weston’s tunes and we began chasing Dave (the band’s co-founder and vocalist / guitarist) to see if we could get him on the show. It seemed impossible but finally, things fell into place and we managed to find him! So here we have it, the long-awaited chat with Dave Weston and James Alex Snyder from the band, Weston. I hope you enjoy this trip down memory lane. All tunes by Weston. Go buy their stuff. It’s all awesome. You can listen right now by clicking on THIS LINK.

Make Me A Mixtape

So this week, Michele and Damo decided to get a show together that if you were to remove all the talking, you’d have a pretty bitchin’ mixtape. But if you choose to listen to the talking, you’ll hear many ridiculous stories as Damo reviews AC/DC cologne while Michele reviews Batman Vs Superman. There’s a whole bunch of random stuff talked about but musically, this episode is awesome. In fact, if you have broken up with someone recently or you just no longer like your ex, these songs could suit you well for the soundtrack of your life. I dunno how it ended up like that but it did and you’ll dig it. Listen now by clicking on THIS LINK.

GREEN DAY – Slappy 7″
Label: Lookout Records
Year: 1990

Words by Damo.

So back in 1990 there was an independent band in Australia named Ratcat who hit the charts with a catchy single titled That Ain’t Bad. It was released on an EP called Tingles and shot the band straight into the mainstream public with catchy hooks and a Buzzcocks-ish vibe¬†that reeked of distortion and melody. This once little known trio¬†from Sydney were now everywhere; on TV, in magazines, everywhere. Ratcat Mania had swept the nation and the band went on to have a successful album called Blind Love before disappearing into obscurity with their follow up that basically saw their ‘new’ fans move on to the next hottest newest what’s hip number one album of the year and forget about this power pop band and their three hit singles (all great). Still, people like myself were not going to walk out on our favourite bands at the time and Ratcat were still a band we supported and still do to this day. Read the rest of this entry »
