This week, my special guest is none other than Michael Sweet from heavy metal legends, Stryper! We talk records, the stripes, the yellow and black, religion, heavy metal, their Aussie tour that starts this Friday and we nerd out over gear. And why not? It’s a fun chat and Michael is an all round top dude. Hopefully we can get him back on the show in the future to go deeper cos we didn’t even really scratch the surface with this one but there’s great stories found within.

Devon (Vocals) and Craigums (Bass) from All You Can Eat in Adelaide, Sept 94.

This week’s show is nothin’ but a good time as Craigums from the bands The Love Songs, All You Can Eat, Your Mother, and countless others, joins me to discuss all of the punk rock antics and his time seeing all the good bands, touring Australia so they can play Mildura, joining bands when you don’t even own an instrument let alone play an instrument, putting out records on a bunch of cool record labels, etc. the list goes on. This show is a fun ride from start to finish. Get a pen and paper handy cos you’re probably going to be writing down a ton of notes so you can go and discover the bands he talks about. There’s a lot of great stuff in here so do yourself a favour.

Back again, my friends after a short holiday in the USA but here’s my chat with Dick Lucas from the legendary UK punk band, Subhumans, and also the ska punk rockers known as Citizen Fish. We talk records, The Young Ones, UK punk rock, Social Conditioning, DIY, Political Correctness, John Peel, Chumbawamba, and more in this episode. Quite an interesting chat and I hope you’ll hear something you didn’t already know. Thanks heaps to Kamala Parks for helping in lining this interview up. Very much appreciated.

This week’s guest is none other than Rookie Rochelle from the Ramones-worshipping punk rockers from Long Island, The Young Rochelles. This is a great chat that gets in to some serious Ramones nerdery bigtime and we put forward a poll for the listeners of the LGLRS. Yep, we need to get to the bottom of the most asked question of every Ramones fan that has yet to be answered. This show is a good time and we hear so many rad stories. You’re gonna dig it. Go buy all their records.

This is one interview that has been a long time coming. My guest this week is none other than Screamfeeder bassist and singer / songwriter extraordinaire, Kellie Lloyd. This is a fantastic chat about everything from young Kel growing up and discovering music to her time in Screamfeeder and her solo works, to coping mechanisms and anxiety. It goes deep and that’s how we do it on the LGLRS. I hope you’ll all get something out of this cos it’s a good time and quite interesting. Thanks Kellie for coming on the show.

Oh wow! This week’s guest is huuuuuge! Yes, my friends, ROSS THE BOSS is on the LGL Rock Show this week talking about heaps of wild stuff and awesome stories. A very honest and genuine interview about growing up in NYC when the first wave of the punk explosion happened. We talk about all of that, his time with The Dictators, about him joining MANOWAR, about his departure from MANOWAR, about joining the French band Shakin’ Street, etc. There’s just so much great stuff in here and I feel that this conversation could have gone on for hours but unfortunately, time is limited. It was conducted backstage at the Croxton Band Room before his show which I have to say was amazing and seeing Ross play those MANOWAR tunes was completely out of this world. I was stoked to do this interview and I hope you enjoy listening to it. Let’s hope we can get him back sometime in the future.

Woohoo! This week’s guest is none other than guitar shredding virtuoso, Jake Kiley from California’s very own Strung Out! The Fat Wreck recording artists are heading back to Australia in June to perform their 1996 album ‘Suburban Teenage Wasteland Blues’ in it’s entirety plus they’ll be tearing through a bunch of classics from their lengthy discography so you know you’re going to get one hell of a show. Anyway, this interview is rad and possibly the first time anyone has brought up the band Excel on the show! Heaps good!
