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 78: My Friends Rolo Tomassi
As angsty teens breaking out of a village near Sheffield in England, Rolo Tomassi always knew they'd have to stand out among the pack. 12 years on, they're adults with four albums under their belts and a handful of world tours completed. That rage has been maintained, however; and they still put on one of the best live shows in all of post-hardcore. The band were in Australia for the fourth time this past October for a headlining tour, and the band's founding members - siblings Eva and James Spence - cosied up in the stairwell next to Rad Bar in Wollongong to talk about their early days, their DIY ethics and what's kept them going all this time.
