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 95: My Friends AJJ
Dec 22 17
They started out as Andrew Jackson Jihad in 2004 - two friends in Arizona, taking on the weird and wonderful world of folk-punk. In the ensuing years, vocalist/guitarist Sean Bonnette and bassist Ben Gallaty have created some cult-classic LPs, toured the world and found themselves in a variety of peculiar situations. While in Australia on a headlining tour, the duo warmed up for their Newcastle date by telling stories about everything from Fieldy from Korn's solo album right up to playing in the back of a bikie bar.
AJJ's latest releases are the rarities compilation "only God can judge me and more," the 2017 EP "Back in the Jazz Coffin" and their 2016 LP "The Bible 2."
All of them, as well as the rest of the band's discography, can be streamed, downloaded and purchased at http://ajjtheband.bandcamp.com
