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 67: My Friend James Alex (Beach Slang/Weston)
2 days ago
Rock & roll is a world that rarely gives second chances – so, when James Alex decided to give it another go-around, few could have predicted that he'd immediately strike gold with Beach Slang; who have gone on to become one of the most hyped indie-rock bands on the planet. It came some 20 years after Alex originally broke into the world of music with Weston, a cult pop-punk outfit for which he played guitar – and yet, their worlds are completely different, yet more closely aligned than you might think. In July, Alex made his maiden voyage to Australia with Beach Slang as a part of the massive line-up for Splendour in the Grass. Upon arriving in Sydney, he took some time out in the foyer of his hotel room to share his unique, unexpected and eventful story.
