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 episode is a double dose of radness. You get not one but TWO interviews on the one show. Basically, they’re both short interviews around 20 – 25 minutes each so I put them both together and now you get the best of both worlds. Not a bad deal, if you ask me. Both of these guys are touring Australia with their respective bands so get on out and see their shows. First up is Denis ”Snake” Bélanger from VoiVod talks about the early years of VoiVod and Jello Biafra putting out their demo and also one of the most incredible gig line-ups I’d ever heard that totally blew me away and I had to nerd out on that with him and get the deal. Michale Graves dives in on his time with the Misfits, obviously, but also touring with Marky Ramone, working with Daniel Rey, plus more. I really hope you enjoy these quick chats.

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.

Devon (Vocals) and Craigums (Bass) from All You Can Eat in Adelaide, Sept 94.

This week’s show is nothin’ but a good time as Craigums from the bands The Love Songs, All You Can Eat, Your Mother, and countless others, joins me to discuss all of the punk rock antics and his time seeing all the good bands, touring Australia so they can play Mildura, joining bands when you don’t even own an instrument let alone play an instrument, putting out records on a bunch of cool record labels, etc. the list goes on. This show is a fun ride from start to finish. Get a pen and paper handy cos you’re probably going to be writing down a ton of notes so you can go and discover the bands he talks about. There’s a lot of great stuff in here so do yourself a favour.

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!

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.
