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 64: My Friend Tom Lyngcoln (The Nation Blue, Harmony, Pale Heads et al.)
1 day ago
You may know Tom Lyngcoln for his years of service at the helm of The Nation Blue, one of the most high-octane and zero-bullshit rock bands this country has perhaps ever seen. You may know him from Harmony, the heaven-and-hell garage-blues monstrosity that simultaneously inspires and terrifies. In more recent years, you may have also seen him fronting Pale Heads with mates from The Drones and Batpiss. Hell, you just might know him as the guy that bled on you at a show once and then stuck his guitar in the ceiling. Whatever your experience with the man, you can't deny his presence or his vitality as a performer. With The Nation Blue back in action after years in the wilderness, Lyngcoln told some stories amidst the noise and madness of the final day of the Poison City Weekender. Listen in as Lyngcoln tells of hating Nick Hodgson, driving highways through the night at 170km/h and a gig he only remembers as "the blood show."
The Nation Blue's two new albums, Black and Blue, are both available on October 14 via Poison City Records. The band are also touring this coming October and November. For pre-order information and ticketing details, head to http://www.thenationblue.com/
