All My Friends Are in Bar Bands
About This Show
Across over ten years of going to shows, I've met countless fascinating people that are joined together by the fact I love their music. This is a medium in which I look to find out the bigger picture, the extended story and the journey that brought them to where they are. No genre or topic is off limits. I'm David James Young - and all my friends are in bar bands.

Episode 83: My Friend Jordan Hudkins (Rozwell Kid)
Mars ain't no place to raise a kid, and West Virginia ain't no place to rock & roll - or, at least, so you'd be lead to believe. Enter Rozwell Kid, whose love of big riffs and old-school powerpop has endeared them to audiences on a global scale. They've just released their fourth album, Precious Art, but back in September 2016 the Kid visited Australia for the very first time as a part of Poison City Weekender. Before another sweaty, show-stopping set as a part of I Love Life at Sydney's Manning Bar, Rozwell Kid's leader Jordan Hudkins sat down to talk of marching bands, college dorms and the one time a $20 payment for a gig was too much.
Rozwell Kid's new album, Precious Art, is out now via Cooking Vinyl Australia and SideOneDummy Records.
