In my neverending quest to interview every single band I grew up listening to, your favourite Long Gone Loser is back with one helluva show. This week I bring you one of my most requested interviews. This interview with singer / songwriter, Simon Day, was conducted upstairs at the Corner Hotel before their show in November, 2014. While that was almost three years ago, it is as relevant today as it was then because this is a chat about history and music and the career of Sydney’s power pop band, RATCAT. Since I first started doing music journalism in the early 90s writing a zine, I had always wanted to secure an interview with RATCAT and it just seemed impossible but voila, here it is! I am so damn happy it is now in podcast form for you to hear. This is one of the best interviews found within the LGL archives. Please enjoy this chat by clicking on THIS LINK and if any of you have a copy of that Hummingbirds / Ratcat split 7″ and you would like it to go to a new home, please send it my way. I’d love you forever!

All tunes by RATCAT.

True! So what are you waiting for? This is possibly the best episode yet. A podcast of comedic value that you’ll enjoy for years to come.
