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.

NOW GO BUY THEIR RECORDS!

We promised it and we delivered. This weeks show is an ode to skateboarding filled with skate music and skate talk. There’s stories of skating and praise for those who do it and have done it. From the Z-Boys to the Bones Brigade and beyond, nothing is sacred in this episode and we even throw out a competition where you shredding guitarists could win a prize pack of random awesomeness. True! So what are you waiting for? This is possibly the best episode yet. A podcast of comedic value that you’ll enjoy for years to come.

Episode 5

Woah! Strap yourself in for a long ride as this show went overboard with antics and insane ramblings from the LGL crew. Once again Damo, Craig and Michele take you through all things awesome. There’s news, there’s obituaries, there’s birthdays, and there’s also heaps good music too! I dunno how we did it but this show is a whopping 3 hours but if you have nothing better to do and you’re sick of the radio, then tune in and listen to the comedic value that the LGL show will bring. Please remember to take everything said with a pinch of salt. We’re here for a good time, not a bad time. Sit back, turn it up and enjoy by clicking this link.

Episode 1

We are back! It took a long time and on this show I explain why. On the new improved Long Gone Loser Rock Show, I am joined by the Movies About Girls Podcast heroine of all things Canadian, Holly, who along with me chats about rock music and joins in on the review of this week’s Aussie release, the psychedelic religious experiment from MONROES FUR. We play some tracks and talk nonsense but it’s all good times from here on in. We also talk rock news, we remember Doc Neeson from The Angels and talk about the Hard-Ons 30th Anniversary this month as well as many other rants and chats of randomness.
