Last month, myself and Peter Langstaff met up once again at the world famous Dicey Riley’s just before he embarked on his monthlong voyage around Australia following The Boss himself, John Cougar Mellencamp.. You’ll get that poor attempt at humour when you hear it. Anyway, as the Springsteen tour comes to a close, check in on Peter’s blog to read all about his adventures following one of his favourite artists all over the country. When Kid Rock does an Australia wide tour one day, I’ll be sure to follow in Peter’s footsteps.
ALSO! So, I’m ‘up for’ an award at the Castaway podcasting awards in April. Look, I’m no chance to win, Casefile has it sewn up by the looks of it, and rightfully so. But hey, if you’d like to help a brother out and sling a vote my way then follow this link:
Thanks in advance!
The return!…. Again! This one has a loooong intro. Long. Sixteen minutes to be precise, including the song. A note on the intro song; it’s from the recently released RTJ3 by the mighty-mighty Run The Jewels and features Zach De La Rocha and it’s awesome.
I can’t remember if I dreamt this, or it’s actually a legitimate rumour, but I’ve heard somewhere that there’s a Zach De La Rocha solo album in the works with production handled entirely by El-P. I hope this is true, but there’s been infinite talk of a De La Rocha solo album over the years with only One Day As a Lion the only thing to closely resemble that. That all being said, if you haven’t heard any Run the Jewels, and this intro is your first exposure, then head over to https://runthejewels.com/music/ and cop all their shit for free. If you want to pay you can do that too.
So on this episode, Louise joins me just after we watched the Robert De Niro/Anne Hathaway starring vehicle, The Intern. Spoiler alert: I loved it. I’m a simple man it seems. We also reflected on 2016, discussed observing how different children do things in different ways and different timelines, and a whole lot of other tangents and non sequitur’s.
News: The Illawarra Music and Record Fair is returning in 2017! This time at City Diggers in Wollongong on Sunday May 7th. Head over to The Crate Diggers Collective‘s Facebook page for more info.
I’m experimenting with scheduled posts for this one. If it doesn’t work, well you won’t see/hear it. If it does, then hooray technology! It’s part 2 of our record fair shenanigans. Don’t forget to follow Sean Sheap, DJ Fury, Lord Lucifer and last but definitely not least, The Crate Diggers Collective!
ALL. STAR. (pod)CAST. YO.
Myself, Sean Sheap and S. Hershel Walker returned to the Illawarra Record Fair for the 3rd time this year and recorded TWO episodes. This is part one, where we were joined by Peter Langstaff and two former Vox FM alums in DJ Fury and Bruno the Bluesman, also known as Dr. Dust, according to Lord Lucifer. We neglected to actually clarify that, but it sounds cool. I always wanted a cool nickname, like Smokey, but it never took off. It’s not the same when you name yourself.
We took in the scenery, had some pub-grub and talked a colossal amount of codswallop about a bunch of things. As mentioned above, this is part one. It would always shit me when podcasts split up episodes into two parts, but I’d like to think we do it artfully.. Or that’s what I’m telling myself anyway. Plus you always end up becoming what you hate the most. It’s a fact of life.
Stay tuned for Part 2 coming soon…ish.
This weekend people! It’s here! The Crate Diggers Collective proudly presents the Illawarra Record Fair III, with colour commentary by us rapscallions at Pod Kembla! If you haven’t heard already, check the event info below, and also check out the exciting things that Sean Sheap and S’Hershel have happening with their ventures too!
On this episode we basically just talked a bunch of crap at the venue formally known as The Grand, then Cooneys and then The Grand once again, in sunny Wollongong on a Thursday afternoon. Hilarity, wrongness and non-sequesters ensued!

Peter Langstaff is a really nice guy. Until very recently he was a part of the long running local music radio show “Doing it Locally” on VoxFM. On top of that, he plays and makes music too. A few weeks ago we met up at Dicey Riley’s to talk about music, podcasts, comedy and of course radio. In particular, community radio. On this episode, basically I come to terms with the fact that VoxFM is my ‘White Whale’, or in the podcast parlance; they are the Lorne Michaels to my Marc Maron.. Seeing that typed out makes me look pretty sad indeed! Nevertheless, this one was really fun because I got to chat to a guy I’ve heard of and know about, but never actually met and it was good times all round. Many thanks to Peter for taking the time out, and keep an eye out for his future endeavours be that of the musical nature, or the podcast variety. Links below. South Coast podcasting ya’ll, we’re making it happen! More on that later. Vulcan gang sign salutations!

It’s been a minute, or to be more specific it’s been over twenty thousand minutes, since our last episode. This time Numsi and myself talked about his recent posting at The Smooth Festival of Chocolate at The Rocks in Sydney. Naturally, being that Numsi is a Melbourne food and drink guru, we talked about food and coffee along with our usual blend of smut peddling.
Now, in a few weeks (6th of November) the mighty-mighty Crate Diggers Collective are putting on the third Illawarra Record Fair for the year at , and yours truly along with the usual suspects will be there to talk a bit of shit and hang out. If you want to buy some records, have a club lunch or even talk some shit with us then come along and join the party! Follow the links and let’s get it on!
Intro – Aesop Rock & Homeboy Sandman : Environmental Studies, from the mixtape “Lice”.
