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 85: My Friends Japandroids
2 days ago
With only one guitar, one drum-kit and two full-throated voices, Vancouver's Japandroids made a quick ascent to the top of the indie-rock heap with loud, love-in live shows and anthems designed to be screamed in arms with your best friends. Then.... nothing. For three years. It was around this time last year, however, that guitarist Brian King and drummer David Prowse made their very welcome return, immediately making up for lost time and dropping their third album at the start of 2017. Before a Newcastle show on their recent Australian tour, Brian and Dave shared some stories in the greenroom from the land of Canada; as well as tales from their worldwide expeditions. Get fired up - Japandroids are back.
"Near to the Wild Heart of Life" is out now via ANTI- Records.
