So here is the first episode in an ongoing series reflecting on my obsession with the music of the Ramones. Basically, to kickstart things, I begin the series by telling the story of how I discovered the Ramones and the first record of theirs that I bought.

This is a podcast for Ramones fans by a Ramones fan. I hope to hear from more Ramones fans as each episode goes on. Let me know about your weird and wonderful Ramones collectibles, your bootlegs, the times you saw them live, etc. I’m looking forward to hearing from you.

This week’s guest is guitarist Andy Gill of punk legends, Gang Of Four. Heaps stoked to have Andy on the show as anyone who knows me knows that once I saw these guys live, everyone knew about it. They were that damn good that I wanted the everyone I knew to know this. We chat about their lyrics 40 years on and are they still relevant, there’s talk about punk in the 70s, records, you know, the usual stuff that I obsess over. It’s a fun chat and I hope you dig it.

This week’s show is awesome! Taime Downe from the legendary band, Faster Pussycat, comes on the show and talks all things awesome from Russ Meyer films to Sobriety. It’s a great listen and I am so thankful he came on the show. Faster Pussycat are also coming to Australia in February so get on out and see a show! Good times!

This week’s guest is none other than Peter Zounis, guitarist from the old Sydney punk legends, Spunkbubbles. The Spunkbubbles were a band that lasted around 4 or 5 years breaking up at the end of the 80s. They had a demo, released two records on Waterfront Records, had some tracks on compilations, and then the band unfortunately dissolved. Still, 35+ years later, those classic records still get played in the LGL office quite often. And why not? I’m pretty stoked to have Pete on the show in another addition to my never-ending quest to interview someone from every band I loved as I grew up. I hope you enjoy the show.

This week’s guest is none other than Rookie Rochelle from the Ramones-worshipping punk rockers from Long Island, The Young Rochelles. This is a great chat that gets in to some seriousĀ Ramones nerdery bigtime and we put forward a poll for the listeners of the LGLRS. Yep, we need to get to the bottom of the most asked question of every Ramones fan that has yet to be answered. This show is a good time and we hear so many rad stories. You’re gonna dig it. Go buy all their records.

Oh wow! This week’s guest is huuuuuge! Yes, my friends, ROSS THE BOSS is on the LGL Rock Show this week talking about heaps of wild stuff and awesome stories. A very honest and genuine interview about growing up in NYC when the first wave of the punk explosion happened. We talk about all of that, his time with The Dictators, about him joining MANOWAR, about his departure from MANOWAR, about joining the French band Shakin’ Street, etc. There’s just so much great stuff in here and I feel that this conversation could have gone on for hours but unfortunately, time is limited. It was conducted backstage at the Croxton Band Room before his show which I have to say was amazing and seeing Ross play those MANOWAR tunes was completely out of this world. I was stoked to do this interview and I hope you enjoy listening to it. Let’s hope we can get him back sometime in the future.

We are late but who cares, really? This week’s show is the Vinyl Nerdery Round-Up for April where we experienced not only the Super Bowl of record nerdery aka RECORD STORE DAY, but the one and only Michele with one L went and bought herself a turntable and has joined us on the darkside! It’s a great day and a time to celebrate. And celebrate is something we do with talk about records and food. Yeah, food! Why? I dunno but we went there. But most importantly, record talk and we hear Michele freak out over the price of JUDGE records. It’s a fun time!
