This week’s guest is Bryan Giles from the band Red Fang. It’s a shorter chat than you’re used to on the Long Gone Loser Rock Show but the main thing is, we solve the Party Time shenanigans that is their entry on Discogs and how it’s connected to Bryan. We also talk about Mad Max and that’s always fun. Anyway, they’re coming to Australia soon and you should all go cos they’re awesome. Dates below.

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.

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.

So on Halloween 2016, The Bronx played at Festival Hall and that’s when the idea came to my mind to organise this week’s guest, the lovely and talented Rebecca Schlappich, to come on the show and talk about her incredible career in music, most notably her work with Mariachi El Bronx.

So while it took a long time to get happening, the good news is that it’s here right now and it’s heaps good. Topics mentioned include things like discovering punk, Alternative Tentacles, My Chemical Romance, Murder By Death, Eyeball Records, Electric Century, Jello Biafra, Richard Wagner, and I even found a way to slip some Manowar into the conversation. And why not?

We also discuss her work with Kiss Kiss, The World/Inferno Friendship Society, The Age Of Rockets, Quartet 405, Mariachi Divas, and of course Mariachi El Bronx. So as you can see, it’s an action packed episode of radness and you can hear it right now by clicking on THIS LINK. Feel free to subscribe by clicking that link on the left. Enjoy! (more…)

In keeping with my attempt at interviewing every single band that I grew up listening to, this episode’s special guest is singer / songwriter Phil Rose, most known for being the vocalist of legendary Australian acts such as Nursery Crimes, Shreen, Sodaracer, Terrorise and Slush Puppies. And when he isn’t fronting his own bands he’s busy co-writing some of Bodyjar‘s biggest hits. We talk all about his career in music, his approach to songwriting, working with legends, playing with legends, and the thrill of seeing songs you have written and contributed to go on to score a gold record. It’s a pretty awesome chat and I hope you all love it. You can listen in right now by clicking on THIS LINK.

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.
