Dylan Slocum ( Spanish Love Songs ) - Finite Amount Of Energy!
On this episode of the podcast I have a chat with Dylan Slocum; lead singer & guitarist for Spanish Love Songs. I've loved every single one of Spanish Love Songs records,  last years release 'Brave Faces Everyone' has become an integral part of my lockdown soundtrack. I was excited to chat to Dylan about the band and their wonderful Patreon content, but also to dig a little into his background as an assistant to a Hollywood screenwriter/director. He didn't disappoint.  Support the show ( conversation is a realistic view on what bands are dealing with both at the moment and on an ongoing basis, the marketing, uncertainty, financial struggles, sustainbility ... that being said, it's also an encouraging chat that shows how important it is to be adaptable. I found Dylan's view on things incredibly relatable, especially when it comes to social media and the amount of energy I have available to dedicate to it. I really hope you enjoy the chat, because I love having Dylan on the show.

Jason Lytle ( Grandaddy ) - Being Multifaceted!
Absolute honour chatting to Jason Lytle; singer and songwriter for the band Grandaddy, as well as solo musician and absolute legend, on this episode of the podcast.  It's hard to describe how much it meant to me to chat with Jason, I'm incredibly thankful. 'Sophtware Slump' is an album that really affected me and my music taste in a major way, hearing it recently reworked and stripped back on the wooden piano was absolutely wonderful too. It's not just that album though, Jason's work just hits me where it hurts (in the best way possible) and; in particular, his solo release 'Yours Truly, The Commuter' gained new meaning  when I had to go back to London and commute daily a while back.  I don't think I ever quite cried at 8am on a packed Central Line tube, but I've sure come close (that's a lie, I've cried on the tube plenty of times).Support the show ( cover a lot on the episode. I was looking forward to chatting about Jason's relationship with skateboarding and how that affected his trajectory, I obviously wanted to talk about music, but we also touch on mental health, marketing, our relationship with social media, finding balance and everything in between. I really hope you enjoy this one. Thanks Jason.Jason Lytle is playing some really special Grandaddy live stream shows in April and I couldn't be more excited.

Jimmy Stadt ( Shy Tooth / Polar Bear Club ) - Finding Balance!
On this episode I chat to Jimmy Stadt from Polar Bear Club & now a new band called Shy Tooth. This conversation means a whole lot to me, PBC were a band that inspired and captivated me like few others and I was incredibly gutted when they chose to call it a day. If you'd have told me 10 years ago I'd be chatting to Jimmy about films, music and marketing ... I'd have probably pooped my pants and been too anxious to even consider to idea. Support the show ( Tooth have a new record coming out called 'Ultrasuede' and I couldn't be more excited!!! The single they've already released from it; 'Too Kind', is an absolute banger; as is the EP 'wavelengths' they released last year. Composed of members of Polar Bear Club, Marathon, Coming Down, Like Wolves and Green Dreams, you know you have to be excited. On the show Jimmy describes it like a super amped up Elvis Costello and I'm not going to argue with that, all I know is, it's bloody gorgeous and I wan't more.

Dan Palmer ( Zebrahead / Death By Stereo ) - "Being In A Band Isn't Hard Work!"
On this episode I chat to Dan Palmer, lead guitarist for Zebrahead, Death By Stereo, Fear No Empire, a bunch of cover bands aaaaannnd he's also a sessions musician. Basically Dan loves to play music and this episode is all about his attitude and passion towards what he does.Support the show ( have been a band I listened to a lot growing up. I'm pretty sure they got on my radar in 2007 when I caught them at the Bournemouth B.I.C.. and as far as I know Dan didn't start playing with them for a few years still. There a band that I always associate with fun times, they never took themselves too seriously and they were a guaranteed good time at festivals. It was also around this time that I also become a fan of Death By Stereo though, I remember them playing at the Bournemouth Opera House and  finding people on MySpace to go watch them with.  So, by the time Dan joined Zebrahead I was pretty familiar with both bands and really into the fact that Dan was juggling two bands that toured heavily; not to mentioned sounded pretty different to each other.It was an absolute pleasure getting to chat to him all these years later and getting to pick his brain.

Loved having this conversation with Shane Brady; actor, magician and complete legend, who's been in a bunch of my favourite films including The Endless, Spring, Doctor Sleep & Synchronic.Support the show ( initially stumbled across Shane's name repeatedly through powerhouse indie directors Aaron Moorhead & Justin Benson's incredible filmography. I'm a massive fan of their films and kept seeing Shane's name pop up, playing incredibly memorable characters that really stuck with me.  I knew I was looking forward to hearing about his career, but I wasn't expecting to have such a great time chatting. He's a super charming, funny and smart guy who's got an incredibly positive and infectious energy. Ever wondered what the difference is between working on an indie film & a major blockbuster? Covered it!Rabbits, hats and Stephen King? There's a story about that too.Prosthetics that never get used, broken necks, magic, it's all in there.Hearing about his experiences working on set of some of my favourite movies was amazing and I really hope you enjoy them as much as I did.

Luke Henery (Violent Soho) - Doing stuff for the love of it!
This week I chat to Luke Henery, absolute legend, incredible photographer and bassist for the Brisbane based Alt Rock/Punk band Violent Soho. Support the show ( stumbled across Violent Soho years ago whilst trying to find the UK Punk band 'WACO' on Spotify and finding Violent Soho's album of the same name. I was an instant fan of their hard hitting songs which somehow reminded me of a Punk Rock Buck Roger era Feeder; mixed in with 90's grunge and feel good anthemic singalongs. I've followed the bands output for the last few years and have been rewarded with banger after banger, this includes their 2020 release 'Everything is A-OK', which is HUGE and deserves to be heard in live venues as soon as Covid allows. Along the way I also become a bug fan of Luke's photography, so as you can imagine we had a lot to talk about. I hope you enjoy this conversation as much as I did.

Dan Le Sac : Leaving a stable career to play a £50 show!
Soooo, yeah, it's been a while. Life got a bit hectic there, but I'm back and I have an episode that I guarantee will make it up to you.Just before I lost all sense of time and was consumed with working for others/paying off bills, I had the absolute pleasure of chatting with Dan Le Sac. Honestly, that's huge for 31 year old me, but even bigger for me at 17 years old, standing awestruck at Mr Kypps in Poole having my mind completely blown by Dan Le Sac Vs Scroobius Pip.Weird thing is, I never even finished editing the episode, it got left on an old computer along with every other project I was working on at the time. Fast forward 8 or so months and you can find me frantically going through old hard drives, opening every single badly named file I can find to try and finally finish off the 10 - 12 projects I was juggling before diving head-on into full-time employment. P.S. I'm currently taking on new projects again, so if you think we should work on something together hit me up! Regardless to say, number one on my agenda was editing this episode; and it's honestly the best choice I made! The conversation is just as relevant as the day we recorded it, that I kind of expected as the whole point of the podcast is to create evergreen content, what I really didn't expect was to find it such a needed encouragement boost, I honestly can't wait for you to hear it!Find out more about Dan Le Sac here: to Dan Le Sac here: To Dan Le Sac's Podcast Falling Forward: Dan Le Sac on Twitch here: Dan Le Sac on - Twitter: to set up your own Podcast?

Wonderful start to Season 4 sharing this great conversation I had with Angel Laws; Award Winning Community Manager for TrustedHousesitters. For the past year, my partner and I have been travelling the UK; virtually rent free, whilst looking after the most adorable pets. We do this using TrustedHousesitters and have been having an absolute blast, so it obviously seemed like a perfect chance to catch up with them on the podcast.I chat to Angela about the brands expansion and ethos, how she got started with them, why pet sitting is so wonderful and what people can expect from the service. I really hope you enjoy the conversation and hopefully some of you can find a new and exiting way to travel whilst helping lovely pets around the world!

Nigel House : A History of Rough Trade, The Birth of Slam City Skates & London in the 80s!
We've hit Episode 30 and to celebrate I had the massive privilege of chatting to Nigel House, Co-Owner of Rough Trade!Rough Trade is a legendary group of independent record shops with headquarters in London. At various times there were also shops in San Francisco, Tokyo and Paris. In 2007 Rough Trade opened a gorgeous shop/cafe in Brick Lane called "Rough Trade East", located in the former Truman's Brewery. I really love these guys, when I first moved into London I would head in religiously and spend money I should really have saved more paying rent.Over the years they have put on incredible events & gigs, helped build a thriving music culture and always stayed ahead of the game. I was incredibly excited to chat with Nigel and I learnt so much from the conversation! I hope you enjoy it as much as I did.Learn more about Rough Trade here: them on Twitter here: episode is sponsored by Nexstand EU. www.nexstand.eu As listeners of the podcast you get a nice and tidy 10% discount using code: Kitschinc10NEXSTAND has been engineered to be one of the most highly adjustable and portable laptop stand on the market, we've been using their products whilst travelling for over 6 months and they have definitely helped my posture whilst working which in turn helps productivity!
