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 71: My Friends Mere Women
From the leisure coast to the inner west, Amy Wilson and Flyn Mckinnirey have come a long way - and we're not just talking Bulli Pass here. Through early individual projects like Ohana and Little a, the two musicians developed a taste for truly alternative music and have continued to pursue it further down the rabbit hole through their band Mere Women. Now, they are one of the single most impressive indie bands in the country, with an enviable live show and a powerful string of songs. Before a show at Black Wire Records, the two talked about their upbringing, being an up-and-comer in your 30s and why they're not as scary as their music might make you think they are.
Mere Women's latest single, "Drive," is out now via Poison City Records.
The band's last show of the year will be at DARKER PARTY in Brisbane on December 16th.
This podcast is brought to you by Spit the Dummy Records.
