Episode 96. Everybody loves massaman, with S’hershel and Paul Keys.

We start off on a sad note with this one, Wollongong Hip Hop lost one of it’s more colourful characters last week. Rest in power to Rob Tha Rich, along with the sincerest condolences to his family and friends.

Afterwards it’s the return of S’Hershel Walker, wherein he brought his mate Paul Keys over to my place a few weeks ago. We drank wine, ate garlic bread & spaghetti and talked utter silliness. With a few sneaky songs thrown in for good measure. Spoiler alert: I wasn’t the one singing or attempting any music of any kind, never fear.

Episode 95. A Road Trilogy.

This one is bad with a capital shit. Two weeks ago I went on a whirlwind drive around New South Wales for work in 2 days. I was delirious, I recorded some of it, you’ve been warned. The link to the video I was talking about on the intro can be found below.

Episode 94. Nik Ranger of Dada Ono.

This week I had a chat with Nik Ranger of Melbourne band Dada Ono. Did we talk about music? Hell nawww! That would be too professional of me wouldn’t it? Be that as it may, we had a lovely chat about a bunch of things, but it all ends with Star Trek, cats and podcasts, which basically sums up my life. The music speaks for itself anyway, for which you’ll hear in the episode. You can go two better though, head over to their bandcamp page and get Dada Ono’s album “Granny Loves Smith”, and head out to Dicey Riley’s this Saturday night and see them in person if you happen to be in the Wollongong area. If not look out for Nik and Dada Ono in a town near you!

Episode 93. Back to Iron Fist, with Sweeney.

THIS WEEK! It’s a good ole fashioned bit o waxing philosophical with Sweeney, live from the West Coast. If you’ve been listening for a while, you’ll know his voice, and maybe even know him in person. If you haven’t and you’re new, first of all welcome, and then second of all; brace yourselves to hear two grown men who could talk to each other underwater and with mouths full of rocks about pretty much anything.

I’m almost 34 and I still have no idea how sentences should be structured, oh and I say “basically” a lot now it seems.

Episode 92. You’re out of your element Donnie, with Jochen Gutsch of Hinterlandt.

Sometimes, doing this silly podcast affords me the opportunity to be exposed to people and ideas I may have never come across. Sometimes I even get to talk to these purveyors of interesting ideas and projects, and this is one of these episodes. Meet Jochen Gutsch, the sound architect behind the Sydney instrumentalist group Hinterlandt. Jochen was nice enough to take some time out of his day to tell me about his journey from Germany to Australia, and his decades of playing very eclectic music. Hinterlandt are touring at the moment and will be playing in Wollongong at Jane’s this Friday night (24th of March) launching their latest album, Ode to Doubt, through Sydney label; Art as Catharsis. I’ve included a couple of their songs on this episode, but do yourself a favour and listen to the whole album yourself. Find it on Bandcamp, or head to their site (http://hinterlandt.org) to get their history and links to all of their music and future shows. Massive thanks to Jochen for chatting to me and enduring my very basic attempts at humour!

Episode 91. Universal Bolognese with Ben & Nick of Food Fusion.

The Food Fusion boys met me at Dicey Riley’s and we talked fusing food, the correlation between my version of bolognese and my former grass roots revolutionary movement, reality television and food.. And other things. We were even lucky enough to get a surprise cameo from a guy that none of us knew. All in an afternoons podcasting.

I know I’ve used the intro song before, but it’s called “Ice Cream Man” so it’s food, so it’s related. That and it’s a gritty pimpsploitation movie compressed into 4 minutes. In the most awesome of ways.
