Erk FM: Australia 514 – Goodbye Erk FM: Australia!

Welcome to Erk FM: Australia episode 514. This is the final episode of Erk FM: Australia and brings to a close 6 years of music podcasting across all genres. Erk FM started on the first Friday of 2009 with an episode a week to start with. Later, most weeks would see at least 2 episodes a week. Erk FM: International & Erk FM: Australia were created & started as separate shows in December 2011.

 

 

Erk would like to thank all of the musicians, music suppliers, promoters, venues and other music podcasters that he has worked with over the last 6 years. It has been a great ride but it is time to move on. On this extended episode, Erk will feature bands/artists he has seen & enjoyed live.

 

It should be noted that Erk FM: Metal Monday will continue weekly into 2015.

 

 

Thank you for listening.

Erk FM: Australia 306 – Farewelling 2012 With Domino & Evil Ugly!

Welcome to episode 66 of Erk FM: Metal Monday & episode 306 of Erk FM: Australia. The episode opens at The Valve Bar with interviews & live tracks from Domino & Evil Ugly. Domino are no strangers to Erk FM. They have just recorded their debut album Where The Desert Meets The Sea that will be officially launched in March 2013 at the same venue. It’s Evil Ugly’s first time on Erk FM – on the night of recording the first half of the episode, they were launching their new single Lovesick Laneway.

While there is crossover between Erk FM: Metal Monday & Erk FM: Australia (who doesn’t like female fronted hard rock?) for the first half of the episode, the second half of the episode goes in separate directions depending on which show you are listening to.

For the rest of this episode of Erk FM, Erk looks back at some of the many highlights of his musical year. […]
