Why MarchPerhaps it’s the harsh terrain, or the ever-present sense of isolation, but Australia exploded in the 1970s and 1980s with bands spitting and sputtering with intense punk fervor.  Bands like RADIO BIRDMAN, The BIRTHDAY PARTY, X, FEEDTIME, The HARD-ONS and plenty of others blasted fiery sounds that were destined to jump off the island empire to the rest of the world.  Hear some still-smouldering Ozzie mayhem from 30+ years back on this final “down-under” episode of GE.  Time to scream G’day mate with your middle fingers extended, fellow music geeks!

Dangerhouse Vol 2If it weren’t for Dangerhouse Records, we would be missing a lot of the amazing music that was part of the L.A. Punk Rock explosion 1977-1981.  Thankfully they were around to bankroll and archive incredible early performances by the likes of X, ALLEYCATS, AVENGERS, WEIRDOS, BAGS, DILS and many others.  Hear some of those historical and often hysterical recordings, along with later recordings from the personal collection of host The Rock’N’Roll Nurse on this exciting episode.  Take the aural pain, fellow music geeks!

L.A. Punk Maturation On Geek (Ema)Nation Podcast!

SlashIn the early ’80s, Slash Records was putting out the bands that mattered from the punk/hardcore scene that was picking up steam there, like X, FEAR and the GERMS.  But it also was on the cutting edge, pushing bands that might be called “roots rock” now like the BLASTERS and RANK & FILE, and psychedelic/garage bands like the DREAM SYNDICATE, the VIOLENT FEMMES and the GUN CLUB.  All these bands are featured on a remarkable compilation record from 1983 entitled Slash: The Early Sessions.  Hear this entire LP plus selections from early Slash recordings with running commentary by host The Rock’N’Roll Nurse.  Get that La-La Land itch, fellow geeks!
