This week’s special guest is none other than Canadian born San Francisco artist, Dirty Donny Gillies! If you’ve been keeping track at home, Donny was in issue 6 of the Long Gone Loser zine and now he is on episode 125 of the podcast 16 years later. Who’d ever have thought? But alas, here he is and he tells all about his art and getting involved with the guys from Metallica and his love of Ed Roth and what brought him to Australia and all that cool stuff. Hell yeah! Also, the music… he requested all Australian bands cos he loves Australian rock n roll so there ya go, that’s pretty exciting! You can listen in right now by clicking on THIS LINK.

NOW GO AND BUY ALL THE RECORDS AND ALL HIS ART!

Recently received a couple new slabs of wax from German label, Lonestar Records. This is some quality stuff so let me talk about them in a bit more detail…

First up we have Markus Karlsson’s new project. He sang for Swedish rockers, The Turpentines.They had a song called No Salvation that the Hellacopters covered on their last album cos they were awesome like that.

REPUBLIKANS – “Republikans” LP (Lonestar Records)
Straight from the ruins of Scandinavian rockers, The Turpentines, hails another class act in the Republikans. Opening track Henry Vs Heroin is sheer punk power pop bliss with a chorus that is as infectious as it is ass-kickin’. In fact, this song alone is worth the price of admission. Seriously, it’s that damn good and you still have 13 songs to go. Upon hearing tracks like Never Get It Straight and Cramp My Style, it’s evident that there are equal parts The Real Kids, The Exploding Hearts and The Records all mashed together for catchy good time rockin’ goodness. The fun just doesn’t stop though and the quickish pieces of garage rock just keep on coming. Apparently some of these dudes are also in those crazed masked rockers, Henry Fiat’s Open Sore, and did I mention there’s a horn section? There is and it’s awesome, adding a very The Saints-esque vibe to tracks like The Suicide Look and Massmedia Attention. This was my first introduction to Republikans and I hope they don’t stop here cos this is the stuff rock n roll dreams are made of. Limited to 500 copies on “piss-yellow” vinyl, this album will restore your faith in punk rock n roll while you’re laying in the wake of Lemmy’s passing. This self-titled album is a mix of all things great and you need it in your life. File next to your records by The Hives and Sweatmaster. Still unsure? Just buy it or listen to the song below.

The nest record on offer is this incredible slab of party time goodness straight from some genius minds out there in sunny California…

THE BAYONETS – “Crash Boom Bang!” (Lonestar Records)
crashbangboom_albumcover_smAs soon as the needle dropped, an instantly recognisable tune filtered through the speakers. Rated as one of the coolest songs of 2014 by Little Stevie (of the E Street Band) on his Underground Garage station,  this LA power pop garage rock n roll band have dished up a solid release filled with catchy tunes reminiscent of every single one of your mum and dad’s great 70s albums. There’s blues, there’s pop, there’s psych, there’s garage, there’s country, there’s beat… none of it bad. This guitar twangin’ jam filled beat boppin’ rockin’ slab of purple wax is filled with ten songs of greatness. Catchy choruses, amazing playing, fantastic harmonies, The Bayonets certainly know how to pen a great tune. And they probably should by now considering chief song writer Brian Ray was part of Paul McCartney’s band and his cohort Oliver Leiber was born from rock n roll royalty (his father, the late Jerry Leiber of the songwriting duo of Leiber and Stoller gave you some pretty notable jukebox boppers like Jailhouse Rock, Stand By Me, Yakkety Yak, and Hound Dog). There’s a lot of awesome to be heard on Crash Boom Bang! and I can assure you that if you like decent music, this album is gonna find its way into your collections and onto your mixtapes. Seriously, don’t try and tell me the ballad Vagabond Soul (which, I’ll have you know, features Aerosmith’s Steven Tyler on wailing backing vocals) isn’t going to be on the next mixed tape you make for your highschool crush. It is what it is. Don’t fight it. This album might become one of my favourite records released in the last couple years and by the time you read this, the LPs might be all sold out as there are only 500 copies pressed but you can still try your luck by writing to Lonestar Records. I’d get on this fast because it’s sure to become a most sought after classic by record vinyl junkies the world over. This really is one of the hottest slabs of wax you’ll hear and you can thank me later.

Bust this for a tune!

You can grab both of these records right now directly from Lonestar Records but get in quick cos 500 copies sounds like a lot but when the bands are this good, they won’t last.

Episode 11

This week Damo dropped a bomb! He told Michele and Craig that there was going to be a special guest calling in to the show. They had no idea who it was going to be until the moment the phone rang and they heard the voice on the other end of the phone. The first live interview the crew have done on the show and it is most amusing. Tune in to see just who was calling the show to give us the goss. Trust me, it’s hilarious! As usual the gang get up to all sorts of shenanigans and Craig steps up to The Things challenge because none of you could be bothered to win prizes. We also pay homage and tribute to Jay Curley from Proton Energy Pills / Brother Brick / Tumbleweed. There’s so much packed into this episode and even some songs that we never thought would ever get played on the show. We spin some new releases from the likes of Fozzy, Loose Pills and The Reprobettes and a bunch of golden greats. This one rules and you can listen right now by clicking on this link!
