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.
