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.

Episode 107

This week’s show features an interview with none other than Tad Doyle from Seattle rockers, TAD. With the Sub Pop reissues being released tomorrow, Damo felt it was the right time to get Tad on the show to talk about the band’s history and the controversy surrounding the album covers that landed the band with serious law suits. You’ll hear it all straight from the man himself so all those myths and stories you have heard in the past can all be finally put to rest. This interview rules and Tad is one of the nicest guys around. Also, check out his new band, Brothers of the Sonic Cloth. Links below.

Never in my life did I ever think this would happen but the stars and planets aligned and the result is this bitchin’ episode of the Long Gone Loser Rock Show! This week’s show features an incredible interview I did with Rob Lind, the legendary sax player with the original wild men of rock n roll, The Sonics. Mixed in amongst the incredible tunes is an informative and insightful chat with one of the hardest rockers of the last century. This is the real deal, my friends and you’re invited!

Episode 96


I was offered some freebie guest list action to last night’s show thanks to the good folk at Shiny. Pretty awesome considering I am a little broke at the moment due to paying bills, my loan off, etc. You get the drill. Anyway, for those who don’t know anything about Calling All Cars, they supported AC/DC on their Australian leg of the Black Ice tour and I reviewed their debut album on this site a few months back which you can read here.

I got to the venue around 9:30pm just as Young Revelry were to hit the stage. From the first note, these guys reminded me of The Black Angels from Austin, Tx but as the set went on, those similarities diminished and their sound became more like the grunge era; you know, Nirvana and stuff. They were alright. I didn’t mind them at all. Lots of wah pedal noise, reverb vocals and pounding drum beats. The guitarist needs a haircut though. Oh, and apparently, if you don’t like their music “you can fuck off”. That’s a direct quote.

Next up was Brisbane’s own Numbers Radio. Never even heard of these guys before (yes, I’m out of the loop) but they brought it bigtime. Good rock songs with high energy on the stage. Dudes were having fun and the guitarist is destined to be a rockstar. I liked their songs and the crowd did too. If I had money, I probably would have bought their CD to play on the radio show. But I don’t so I didn’t. They seemed to have made everyone happy and ready to rock. I’d like to hear them on record now to see if it lives up to their live show. Both the bassist and the guitarist have good voices that work well blended together. Good stuff guys!

Calling All Cars hit the stage in their first headline show at the Corner and they were stoked. The crowd were really into it and the band’s sound on stage was huge for a 3 piece. You could see how happy they were that all of this touring has paid off as they have perfected their live set over time and they have moved to that next level. I am sure they learned a lot from the AC/DC tour about upping your game to put your band that bit further ahead of the pack and it shows. Good stuff. Their set included all the hits from their “Hold, Hold, Fire!” album, a new song and a blistering cover of the Black Rebel Motorcycle Club’s “Whatever Happened To My Rock N Roll”. Nice one! They ended off the set with radio favourite, “Disconnect”, sending the crowd into a frenzy and then left the stage as the house lights rose and the venue emptied.
