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.

Back again, my friends after a short holiday in the USA but here’s my chat with Dick Lucas from the legendary UK punk band, Subhumans, and also the ska punk rockers known as Citizen Fish. We talk records, The Young Ones, UK punk rock, Social Conditioning, DIY, Political Correctness, John Peel, Chumbawamba, and more in this episode. Quite an interesting chat and I hope you’ll hear something you didn’t already know. Thanks heaps to Kamala Parks for helping in lining this interview up. Very much appreciated.

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 serious 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.

* “Award Winning” sounds so much cooler than just plain “Author” so just roll with it, okay cos the fact remains, he should be award winning, dammit!
