I don’t even know how to deal with this one cos this week’s episode is huge! Pete Kostic is this week’s guest and it’s so much fun as I go all nerd with one of my all time favourite drummers. Pete has a history in music that is so damn impressive to any Aussie rock nerd and we only just scratch the surface in this hour of power but never fear because there will be a follow up down the track but right now, this is one show you are going to enjoy.  We talk about being a part of Front End Loader, his time with The Hard-Ons, and of course playing with one of Australia’s most successful “indie” bands, Regurgitator. Pete is one of the nicest guys you could ever meet and I am thankful he agreed to come on this show and share his hilarious stories.

This week’s guest is none other than Andrew Neufeld from the Canadian hardcore band, Comeback Kid. Not at all an interview but more just a random chat about random things while he cleaned his house. Yeah, seriously. We talk about why there has never been a 7″ vinyl release from the band, Victory Records, working with Devin Townsend, touring Europe, being mixed in with the straight edge scene, etc. There’s a bunch of random stuff here and I have to stress that I was still half asleep when doing this interview so if I sound tired, that’s why. Still, we got it done and all is good.

We are back again to talk about our records for March in our Vinyl Nerdery round-up. Not only that but our good friend Stefan joins us to talk about Detroit rock n roll and photographing some of the greats including The White Stripes, Scott Morgan, Ron Asheton and the Hellacopters. It’s pretty awesome stuff as he was right there photographing these bands and documenting their performances. He also tells us more info about those discovered MC5 photos! Also, where’s Deniz Tek? Oh he’s just in the crowd watching the MC5 as talked about on this episode. There’s so much here and it’s pretty nerdy. If you like records or you like Detroit rock n roll, this will appeal to you.

This week my guest on the show is none other than founding member of The Sword, John D Cronise. This interview is a good time as we chat about Guns N Roses, Led Zeppelin, records, comics, artwork, producing albums, the Bonneville Salt Flats, ZZ Top, and heaps more! It’s a good chat and if you’re a fan of the any of those things, you’ll find something of value in this episode. Totally stoked to have JD on the show.

The Sword’s new album, Used Future, is out March 23rd on Razor & Tie. Check out the tunes below for all the riffs!

EDIT: The Sword show I saw in Italy in Bologna supporting Metallica was actually in 2008, not 2009 like I said at the start. It all gets confusing after a while.

On this week’s show, my guest is the one and only Mark Starr, the vocalist from Salt Lake City hardcore band, INSIGHT. This is a huge deal for me this week as I have been listening to that record for almost 30 years and now he’s on the LGL Show! Heaps good! We talk about his days before INSIGHT, his trek to California and then to Seattle to start The Gimmicks, and then coming full circle back to reuniting INSIGHT 20+ years later.

This month’s vinyl nerd session is here and Chris and Damo nerd out for however long it takes to nerd out over records. We discuss all the usual nerd stuff and tell stories about albums, about bands, about anything and everything to do with records. Also, Chris gives us his essential guide to lounge exotica music. All this and more, Dead Boys style, on the latest episode of the Long Gone Loser Rock Show!

Show amendment: the song by Jefferson Airplane is Law Man, NOT Outlaw. Dunno why I kept messing that up.

This week I welcome to the show IRON CHIC bassist and Dead Broke Rekerds head honcho, Mike Bruno!
