    Episode Sixty Three: Will McGonagle - Hell Is For Heroes / Symposium

    Episode Sixty Three: Will McGonagle - Hell Is For Heroes / Symposium

    Hello people! Welcome to the when in Yorkshire podcast I hope you’re all well. This is episode 63 and another episode that has rescued from the digital abyss where is was being held captive for the past 12 months and I’m very excited to finally release it. This episode features guitarist Will McGonagle of Symposium and Hell Is For Heroes. Before I get into this episode I will shout out that Hell Is For Heroes are about to go out on tour hitting 
    Bristol Fleece 3rd April
    Glasgow Garage 4th April
    Manchester Academy 5th April
    London Electric Ballroom 6th April
    There are limited tickets still left for most dates so got on your internets and buy em.
    As a bonus treat, previous guest Tom Campbell will be working his light based magic and make them look awesome too.
    Whilst all the guests I have on here are people I think have interesting stories and I’m generally a fan of their work, every now and then I’m lucky enough to spend time with someone whose work has had a significant impact on me and this is absolutely one of these times. I enjoyed Symposium when they were first around and have certainly developed a greater appreciation for what a force they were, especially live but Hell Is For Heroes had a huge influence on me as a musician and were / still are one of my favourite bands to see live. I’m please to report that based on spending an hour with him, Will is a fricking delightful person and I would go for a curry with him. The list of gigs he attended back in the early to mid 90’s is amazing and was great hearing about his experiences with record labels as well as many other stories.
    Enjoy.

    Episode Sixty Two: The Andy - Hundred Reasons

    Episode Sixty Two: The Andy - Hundred Reasons

    Hello people, welcome to the When In Yorkshire Podcast I hope you’re all well. Now that the episodes have been recovered there’s going to be a whole load that were recorded a while back and this is a great way to kick them off. Episode sixty two featuring the Andy - current bass master with raging speedhorne, previously rocking guitar with Freeze the Atlantic and of course bassist in Hundred Reasons. 
    This was recorded a year ago as Hundred Reasons were on tour with Hell Is For Heroes and My Vitriol prior to the release of Glorious Sunset which has just turned 1! 
    I spent a large amount of the 00’s listening to and going to see Hundred Reasons and covering some of their tracks - in fact the same is applicable for the other bands on that tour. For me they were a big influence in terms of the music I was writing and whilst their debut Ideas Above Our Station was a standout album, I really loved everything they released - so I was a little hesitant (albeit quite excited too) when I heard they were releasing new music but from the listen of the first single and title track, Glorious Sunset, I was absolutely hooked again. If you haven’t heard the album all the way through, or in fact if you haven’t listened to it all this year, please do. It’s genuinely great and has back on rotation for me throughout February. 
    Andy was delightful to chat to and despite having to keep the volume down due to a sleep driver below us on their bus, we covered a whole range of topics and it was great to hear about his introduction to music as well as how the latest album came to be. 
    Before we get into this episode, if you’re also wanting a real in depth series of interviews about Hundred Reasons featuring all members of the band - I can highly recommend Live Fast, Die Ugly: The Hundred Reasons Podcast and I’ve put a link in the description of this episode.

    Episode Sixty One: GK & Hannah - VENUS GRRRLS

    Episode Sixty One: GK & Hannah - VENUS GRRRLS

    Hello people welcome to the When In Yorkshire Podcast how are you I hope you’re all well. We are back and have a really fun episode to share. This is episode 61 and features GK and Hannah from the predominantly Yorkshire based band Venus Grrrls. We caught up at the delightful Brudenell Social Club in Leeds a few days before their first headline gig there - which if you’re listening at any point before 8pm on Saturday 10th February 2024, you can still get along to. 
    Venus Grrrls have been on my list to chat to for a while but due to a global pandemic and GK’s leukaemia diagnosis either of which could have been the end of the band, we have only just been able to make this happen. 
    We discuss both GK and Hannah’s history with music how the band came to be and unlock the secret to building and maintaining a loyal fan base. 
    I had a great chatting to these two and I hope you enjoy listening. They are setting 2024 up to be a busy year with support dates with The Sprints and festival slots already in the calendar so keep a look out. Links to all their social media and YouTube channels are in the description of this episode, I strongly recommend you check them out along with their latest track Divine, which has been described as a lusty grunge storm of a single and already getting support from Radio 1, radio x and 6 music amongst other. It’s absolute treat.

    Episode Sixty: Tracey Wise - Safe Gigs For Women

    Episode Sixty: Tracey Wise - Safe Gigs For Women

    Hello people, welcome to the When In Yorkshire Podcast, I hope you’re well. This is episode sixty and features Tracey Wise, the founder of Safe Gigs For Women, a not for profit organisation who work with all aspects of the music industry to raise awareness of good practices and ways for venues to create safe spaces for women. 
    This was a really interesting chat for me, as a man my only safety consideration when going to gigs is: how close to the pit do I want to be today and to think that in the times we live in where the basic rights of equality and respect should be a given to anyone, its horrendous that a service like this is even needed. 
    Tracey was great to speak to and gave a brilliant insight into how Safe Gigs For Women came about, her own journey as a music lover, the people that have stepped up to help spread the word and the services available to people. 
    Without just rehashing the conversation, after having time to reflect on this, her comments around artists that ‘own their mosh pit’ really stuck with me. Frank Turner was the example here but there are other musicians from Sam Carter of Architects to Drake who have been highlighted as calling out members of their audience after seeing a whole range of abhorrent behaviour and whilst I think it is great that these instances are brought into the public eye, it does spark the question - could artists be doing more to ensure these acts don’t happen in the first place rather than having to react after the event? I would love to see some public service announcements at festivals by headline acts speaking out about this or clear messages that abuse is not tolerated when bands are promoting their vip ticket upgrades and soundcheck passes.

    Episode Fifty Nine: Slam Dunk 2022 - Silverstein / COUNTERPARTS / Hot Water Music

    Episode Fifty Nine: Slam Dunk 2022 - Silverstein / COUNTERPARTS / Hot Water Music

    Hello People! Welcome to the When In Yorkshire Podcast, I hope you’re all well, we’re back with another episode recorded at Slam Dunk 2022. The 2023 festival is just under 3 weeks away and looks to be another awesome day with a line up mixing up some of the best Punk / Rock and bands around with a good blend of legends and new faces.
    Here I speak to Canadian rocker and host of the great podcast Lead Singer Syndrome: Silverstein vocalist Shane Told who highlights my love of tapping - Brendan and Tyler from Canadian hardcore band COUNTERPARTS and wrapping up this episode is Chuck Ragan and yet another Canadian, Mr Chris Crestwell of Hot Water Music. 
    As I’ve said before, this was a busy day but filled with conversations featuring absolute heroes and I genuinely enjoyed speaking to and meeting each of these guests. Festival slots can be tricky as these conversations are often very restricted by time and guests are being ushered around a heaving press tent with music from at least 2 stages competing against each other as well as our voices however everyone of the guests from Slam Dunk, not just this episode, were incredibly giving with their responses and hopefully these are as much fun to listen to as they were to record.

    Episode Fifty Eight: Dan ‘Soupy’ Campbell - The Wonder Years

    Episode Fifty Eight: Dan ‘Soupy’ Campbell - The Wonder Years

    Hello People, welcome to the When In Yorkshire Podcast, I hope you’re all well. We are back with the second of 4 episodes recorded at Slam Dunk 2022 - if you haven’t checked out the first  - it’s a treat and features Knuckle Puck, Beauty School, As December Falls and Sum 41 - it was quite a day I would recommend going back and listening to it to the episode - it was a lot of fun recording the conversations. 
    This is episode Fifty eight and features Dan ‘Soupy’ Campbell, of The Wonder Years and Aaron West and the Roaring Twenties.
    I was a late comer to The Wonder Years but when I first heard Came Out Swinging I was hooked and this has been a conversation I’ve wanted to record for ages. Dan did not disappoint and was an absolute pleasure to talk to, it was awesome to hear about his early days with music, the formation of The Wonder Years and their progression from a crazy joke band to how they are now. I’d not heard ‘Won’t be pathetic forever’ until just before this conversation and hadn’t realised it was the first thing they released as this version of the band.
    It’s still great and I’ve included a YouTube link to the EP if you haven’t heard it. 
    The set at Slam Dunk was also brilliant, they gave an absolute master class in delivering a tight and emotive performance, they don’t currently have any live dates but their last U.K. tour with Beauty School was great and I’m excited for when they come back round although Dan’s other project Arron West and the roaring twenties will be at 2000 trees this year so if you are there and the line up for that looks amazing, then go check that out.

Really like this

I’ve only just found this podcast and absolutely love it. The guests are great and the questions asked offer really informative answers. The one great thing is the host always gives the guest plenty of air time to answer the questions. I also like that each show is relatively short, ideal if you listen to podcasts in the car (like I do) and you’re not on a long journey. Keep going, looking forward to more.

Good Fun

I've enjoyed this podcast for the past few months, good conversations with great guests and it's nice to hear some information about how each guest found their way in to their current occupation - mostly musicians! Light hearted and fun.

Awesome sauce

Awesome guests, big fan of the Roger Lima episode, I haven't thought about Less Than Jake in years and it was nice to reminisce about my teenage years. Luzio doesn't just talk over the guest which is a resfreshing change to some podcasts. I thought the guys from Sonc Boom Six had some really interesting things to say too. Can't wait to here the Frank Turner eipsode, keep up the good work.
