Welcome to episode 62 of Love That Album podcast.

For the second time in the show’s life, I have abdicated complete control of the show to the men who know how to hold court. My fellow See Hear Podcast presenter Tim Merrill and long-time contributor to LTA, Eric 'Reanimator' Peterson once again devote a whole show to the subject of punk. This time around they discuss The Dead Boys’ “Young, Loud and Snotty” from 1977. They follow that up with a chat about Killing Joke’s eponymous album from 1980

I may not be an expert on the subject of punk music, but as per usual, when these gents have a discussion on the subject (any subject, really), I am fascinated. They not only discuss the albums, but the environment they were born into. Nothing exists in a vacuum, and it is truly great to have a historical context for this music. Tune in, enjoy some great music, and get educated all at once.

My thanks to Tim and Eric for contributing this great episode. Give them some love.

Welcome to episode 4 of the LTA: Compilation Series podcasts hosted by Eric Reanimator. This episode is called Happy Pub.

This time around Eric is discussing a couple of albums focussing on British pub rock. First of all he talks about Elizabeth McQueen and the Firebrands with their tribute album to pub rock from 2005 called “Happy Doing What We’re Doing”. Then he goes right to the source with the compilation “Pub Rock: Paving The Way For Punk” featuring artists like Ian Dury, Brinsley Schwartz and the 101’ers (with a pre-Clash Joe Strummer)

As always, Eric delivers a truly fascinating show. He contextualises the music describing the circumstances that led to pub rock in England. When young artists wanted to bring back pure raw energy to make exciting music (in much the same way rock and rollers from the 50s did), as an alternative to the musicians who were showing their chops through Progressive Rock, Pub Rock was created. As a side note, the pub has long been the breeding ground for most great Australian rock. I hope to discuss this with Eric on a future show.

I urge you to give Eric your time. His shows are not just podcasts, but audio documentaries. They are well thought out and you come away knowing something new.
