We are back again to talk about our records for March in our Vinyl Nerdery round-up. Not only that but our good friend Stefan joins us to talk about Detroit rock n roll and photographing some of the greats including The White Stripes, Scott Morgan, Ron Asheton and the Hellacopters. It’s pretty awesome stuff as he was right there photographing these bands and documenting their performances. He also tells us more info about those discovered MC5 photos! Also, where’s Deniz Tek? Oh he’s just in the crowd watching the MC5 as talked about on this episode. There’s so much here and it’s pretty nerdy. If you like records or you like Detroit rock n roll, this will appeal to you.

This month’s vinyl nerd session is here and Chris and Damo nerd out for however long it takes to nerd out over records. We discuss all the usual nerd stuff and tell stories about albums, about bands, about anything and everything to do with records. Also, Chris gives us his essential guide to lounge exotica music. All this and more, Dead Boys style, on the latest episode of the Long Gone Loser Rock Show!

Show amendment: the song by Jefferson Airplane is Law Man, NOT Outlaw. Dunno why I kept messing that up.

This week I welcome to the show IRON CHIC bassist and Dead Broke Rekerds head honcho, Mike Bruno! Iron Chic were recently in Australia tearing up a storm with their catchy anthemic songs for a new tomorrow. Mike took the time to sit with me and talk about vinyl nerdery. We talk about all sorts of legendary bands like Green Day, the Ramones, the Goo Goo Dolls, Soul Asylum, to name just a few, amongst a whole bunch of other fun topics and chit chat.

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.

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. (more…)
