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 81: My Friend Adam Gibson (The Ark-Ark Birds, Modern Giant, The Aerial Maps)
4 days ago
Some were born to sing. Some were born to shred. Adam Gibson was born to speak - his art is poetry and spoken word; matched up to everything from jangly indie-pop to dark and atmospheric rock. His love of storytelling and yarns matched up with his love of punk rock got him an early and unique start in the world of music, and it's one he's held onto for decades. Now at the helm of the collective Adam Gibson & The Ark-Ark Birds, he continues to share stories of love, loss and the land to this very day. With a brand-new album out, Gibbo ventured out from his native Bondi into the heart of Newtown to explain how it all started, as well as where it's all ended up.
The new album from Adam Gibson and the Ark-Ark Birds, "Cities of Spinifex," is out now.
It can be streamed, downloaded and purchased here: https://adamfgibson.bandcamp.com/album/cities-of-spinifex
