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 348 – Attacking The Charts Hard!

Welcome to Erk FM: Australia episode 348. Erk has been at one EP launch last weekend (Hard As Nails) & has another one this weekend (Vanity Riots). There is a lot of great music out there & in Sydney this Saturday night, there is great music that Erk has featured on Erk FM before in at least 5 different venues on the one night. Somehow Erk wishes he could be in several places at once! This week, Erk also found that a band he has featured before on Erk FM are starting to gig again with a new lineup.

 

In an unusual move for an Australian indie/unsigned band, Melbourne female fronted hard rock band Bellusira are making an attack on the Australian music charts by encouraging people to pre-order their debut album Connection via JB Hi-fi. Online pre-orders will be signed by the band. In-store pre-orders are also available. 

 

Music supplied by SGC Media, Insomnia Radio  & the artists directly. One track recorded live by Erk.

Erk FM: Metal Monday 82 – Rock Chick Central!

Welcome to episode 82 of Erk FM: Metal Monday. Inspired by a conversation with Ro (Dark Compass) and Kimmi (The Metal Deli) and also by a couple of gigs during the week, Erk decided to put together all the so-called rock chicks that he has seen over the last year or so onto the one episode. While it might be the case that these women are fronting rock bands, you don’t need to be fronting a rock or metal band to have the rock chick persona going on.

Erk FM: Australia 336 – Erkstock Revisited!

Welcome to Erk FM: Australia episode 336. On this episode, Erk thought that he would revisit his debut gig as a promoter last year, Erkstock. Held to celebrate his birthday, Erk selected a range of bands to play at the Valve Bar in Sydney. With a range of female fronted rock & metal, everyone who attended the show & stayed longer than 5 minutes enjoyed themselves. So what have the bands who played Erkstock been doing since August last year? On this episode, we’ll find out. We’ll also find out for the very first time some of the other bands on Erk’s wishlist for the event (Erkstock 2? LOL).

 

It’s not often that someone who has been on Erk FM gets themselves on national TV but Suns of Cascadia vocalist Oscar has done exactly that. Appearing on the 2013 season of The Voice on Channel 9, Oscar had his blind audition shown during the week & has progressed to the next stage. Erk will be keen to see how he progresses. Good luck, Oscar! Follow his progress here.

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. […]
