Erk FM: Australia 502 – Norockvember Week 3

Welcome to Erk FM: Australia episode 502. It is the 3rd and penultimate week of Norockvember which has been the theme for November after Rocktober. Erk’s on a mysterious last minute mission so re-presents an episode of Norockvember from November 2012. 2 years ago, Erk is just back from the Whiplash tour which went up & down the east coast of Australia. Apart from a lot of memories (good, bad & indifferent), Erk also picked up a wicked case of pink eye on the tour. Norockvember was the perfect thing to do while Erk recovered!!!

Erk FM: Australia 486 – Rocktober Preview

Welcome to Erk FM: Australia episode 486. This is a preview of next month’s Rocktober. This preview episode dates from the last time that Erk did Rocktober in 2012. There is a lot of great Australian rock out there & I’ve only touched the surface! To allow more music, there’s not a lot of talking from Erk on this episode – more music, less waffle!

Erk FM: Australia 448 – Feeling 300

Welcome to episode 448 of Erk FM: Australia. Due to some technical issues and poor song choice and limited time, Erk re-presents episode 300 of Erk FM: Australia. This is a celebration episode as it is a milestone episode. So to celebrate, Erk has a couple of guests – it is even better when said guests help with the playlist! Guests on this episode are Shawno & Jen from San Luis Obispo who are long term friends of Erk FM. Their previous podcasts include Hyper Nonsense and Gemini Dragon with their latest venture being a multimedia portal (including podcasts) called No Market.  For this special occasion, Shawno & Erk have worked on the playlist separately and there are videos below for most songs.  If you watch the videos in real time like Shawno & Jen did, you’ll understand what we discuss when it comes to the videos.

Erk FM: International 443 – Severe Pain Makes Erk Something Something (repeat first Erk FM: International episode)

Welcome to episode 443 of Erk FM: International. Due to Erk being in severe pain due to a leg infection, Erk decided to bring you a repost of the very first episode of Erk FM: International, Erk FM: International episode 197. Erk FM started in January 2009 as a podcast featuring music from around the world every Friday. During Erk’s Europe trip in 2011, he decided to separate Australian music to create Erk FM: Australia (even numbered episodes on Fridays) and then Erk FM: International (odd numbered episodes, Wednesdays).

Erk FM: Australia 372 – Diving Into The Womb

Welcome to episode 372 of Erk FM: Australia. Like on this week’s episode of Erk FM: International, Erk has decided to feature one artist. In this case, the band is The Womb. With almost constant line up & style changes, The Womb have a variety of styles as you will hear on this episode. Starting in the UK as an avenue to counter musical frustration in high school, The Womb have featured various people as well as at one time being a solo project of founder Alan Driscol. In later years, Alan moved to Australia, now calling Melbourne home. All albums by The Womb (and there’s a few of them!) are available as free downloads via their website.

Erk FM: Australia 368 – In Case Of Emergency, Fronz Arp!

Welcome to episode 368 of Erk FM: Australia. This week’s episode features an old friend of the podcast, Fronz Arp. Originally from Brisbane, he called Sydney home for a while before returning home. Now he is on a big adventure calling New York City home for the moment, having the time of his life (I hope!) performing, seeing other performers & meeting a lot of people. During the week, Fronz sent me a link to some new material which is the backbone of a free to download Fronz Arp sampler. FREE FRONZ!

 

If all of this Fronz isn’t enough, Erk plays some tracks from Fronz Arp Is A Crooked Little Orchestra.
