Bad Cop Bad Cop

We have been playing them solidly on the show this past year and so it was inevitable that, Stacey Dee, guitarist and vocalist from Californian punk rockers, Bad Cop Bad Cop, joined the show. It’s 90 minutes of radness and Stacey talks about everything from the band forming to song writing andĀ recording albums to battling drug addiction and coming out a winner. All of this and more is right here, right now on the latest episode of the Long Gone Loser Rock Show. This band rules and they have just started a six week tour across the USA with The Interrupters so if theyĀ pass through your city, get out and go see them cos they’re freakin’ awesome!

The Mr T Experience

This week’s episode features part 1 of a 2 part interview with non other than Dr Frank of the California pop punk rockers, The Mr T Experience. This is one helluva ride! Dr Frank talks with Michele and Damo about the band’s humble beginnings and career highlights up til and including the album Our Bodies, Our Selves (part 2 follows from Love Is Dead onward coming October 4th). This is one awesome chat and is so much fun as Dr Frank goes into detail about his song writing and tales surrounding those around him. There’s chats about Gilman Street, Lookout Records, Kevin Army, The Queers, movies, Ā being understood, being misunderstood, antics, shenanigans, etc. It’s awesome and you can listen in right now by clicking on THIS LINK.

This week’s episode is seriously bitchin’ and one of the best so far in the podcast’s history. Along with my buddy, Bil McRackin, I chat to Goo Goo Dolls bassist, Robby Takac, as we take a walk down memory lane talking about those kickass early punk records right up to the song that changed their lives forever. It’s an awesome interview packed with great stories as Robby talks The Replacements and collaborating with Paul Westerberg, their shout-out fromĀ Steel Panther in Death To All but Metal, discovering and covering Aussie rock legends the Lime Spiders, recording those classic albums, playing barefoot, and a whole lot more. It’s a great time and is packed with awesome tunes from throughout the band’s career. I end off the show with a couple amazing covers of Goo Goo Dolls tunes that you just need to hear, which you can do so right away by clicking on THIS LINK.

Enjoy and go buy some records!

Years ago, back in the days of VHS tapes, I was given this heavy metal music video magazine type thing and there was this segment on this band called SHRAPNEL. Well, I think that was their name, they don’t actually say it in the video but I kinda put 2 and 2 together and that’s the best I could come up with by matching names to segments from the back cover to the segments in theĀ video. Anyway, being a huge fan of skateboarding and the like, I saw this footage and became intrigued. Who are these guys? Where were they from? What did they release? and of course the age old question, where are they now?

So I decided to upload this video segment to see if we can get some intel and jog some memories of ourĀ LGL listerners &Ā readership toĀ see if we can find out more aboutĀ these rockers or if any of you were at these famed parties they speak of…
