Across over ten years of going to shows, I've met countless fascinating people that are joined together by the fact I love their music. This is a medium in which I look to find out the bigger picture, the extended story and the journey that brought them to where they are. No genre or topic is off limits. I'm David James Young - and all my friends are in bar bands.

    Episode 164: My Friends Knocked Loose

    Episode 164: My Friends Knocked Loose

    Knocked Loose are just what the Colonel ordered: A fresh batch of Kentucky-fried, scorched-earth, brutal-beatdown hardcore to throw bodies off stages to. The band's menacing and unrepentant approach to the genre has cemented them as heavyweights despite only being two albums and a handful of years in. Hell, even Corey Taylor has championed them as the future of heavy music. How did these southern boys send their trajectory skyward? Prior to a show in Newcastle with Jesus Piece, vocalist Bryan Garris and drummer Kevin "Pacsun" Kaine broke down their own personal musical histories and how they inevitably intertwined within a small town that they turned into a global village for hardcore.

    Thanks to Janine Morcos, Dallas Does PR, Mark Bawden, Ash Hull, Greg Bower, Destroy All Lines, the Cambridge Hotel and Paul McWhirter.

    Episode 163: My Friend Kate Cooper (An Horse)

    Episode 163: My Friend Kate Cooper (An Horse)

    Growing up in the concrete slabs of the Gold Coast, you can't always get what you want. It wasn't until Kate Cooper moved up north to Brisbane that she was truly able to get some degree of satisfaction. A mid-2000s stint at the helm of Iron On turned her into one of the country's cult indie darlings, which blossomed to a global scale with her next band, An Horse. Things were very very good for awhile there, but things also got very very real. Cooper doesn't hold anything back in discussing the highs and lows of her career at the tail-end of a national An Horse tour back in late February.

    Thanks to Sarah Thompson, Poison City Records, Kelly-Dawn Hellmrich, Damon Cox, the Factory Theatre and Paul McWhirter.

    Episode 162: My Friends RAT!Hammock

    Episode 162: My Friends RAT!Hammock

    With a blend of psychedelia, pop, folk, jangle, indie, shoegaze and rock & roll, RAT!Hammock have assembled and curated a sound that is irresistible and wholly endearing. It's made them a lot of friends and fans along the way, which is always a plus - but this band, like most their age, started out with no loftier ambitions in mind. They're suburban kids, ranging from aspiring metalheads to baby Elvis impersonators. How exactly did they all end up in Brisbane, on a co-headlining tour with Horror My Friend and sold-out signs on the door? It's a long story. A fun one, too. Thankfully, there was some dude with a microphone there to document the entire thing.

    Thanks to Rad Management, the Black Bear Lodge and Paul McWhirter.

    RAT!Hammock's new single "Word Of The Day" is out now.

    Episode 161: My Friends Starcrawler

    Episode 161: My Friends Starcrawler

    Fresh out of rock & roll high school, LA's Starcrawler wasted little time in delivering their punchy blend of glam, punk and rock & roll to an unsuspecting but entirely appreciative audience. It's turned their late teens and early 20s into a dazzling melee of sold-out shows and jaw-dropping accomplishments, receiving recognition from industry giants like Dave Grohl and Sir Elton John along the way. In January 2020, Starcrawler came to Australia for the very first time. In-between shows, they took a half-hour of power out of their busy schedule to elaborate on how this slap-dash batch of wiry teen rockers evolved into one of their city's most talked-about rock bands.

    Thanks to Charlie Ellison, Remote Control Records, The Lady Hampshire and Paul McWhirter.

    Episode 160: My Friend Newton Faulkner

    Episode 160: My Friend Newton Faulkner

    It wouldn't matter if Newton Faulkner had one hit or not - he'd still be a wonder. Whether it's his inventive and dizzying guitar playing or his stirring, emotive voice, Faulkner has remained one of the more charming and entertaining prospects of the singer-songwriter circuit - both in his native UK and abroad. He's spent most of the last decade working on his terms, outside of the structure of major labels and primarily touring with little more than a pedal board and his tour manager - who also happens to be his sister. What can we learn from the freewheelin' Newton Faulker? Quite a lot, as it turns out. From teenage punk bands to sold-out theatres, there's not much this ginger ninja hasn't done.

    Newton's new EP 'Chapter I - I Can Pretend' is out now via Battenberg Records.

    Stream it here: https://open.spotify.com/album/2OOW5OVQghI1grgnMIalBA?si=xhTSj1MdQUWbQ-r4qSqKOA

    Thanks to Nicole Stringer, Chugg Entertainment, the Oxford Art Factory and Paul McWhirter.
