In this 30 minute episode I give you a brief introduction to the amazingly talented  and way underrated Carolyne Mas. I play a few tunes from her first 3 albums on Mercury Records. All these are available for only $5 direct from Carolyne herself (digital download) at her web site 34 years ago this week, her debut album was being mixed by Bob Clearmountain at Power Station. 34 years ago – it still sounds vibrant, relevant and amazing. Tune in for a brief introduction to this superb artist. When? This Thursday night, 10 pm (AEST) on Rockbrat Radio. Click here to go there now. 


Just a reminder that there are currently 22 episodes of Rockbrat Radio  available for you to download or stream, all for free! Admittedly, due to other projects, 2012 was a very quiet year as far as episodes of Rockbrat Radio goes, (ie: none) but this year we are going to ramp that up a  little and hope to bring you some new interviews and retrospective shows as well – with cool music guaranteed! Until then though – why not sit back, crack open a cold one, and tune in to the existing episodes of Rockbrat Radio – the blog for your ears! There’s some good stuff to listen to. Including episodes that put the spotlight on Vicious Kitten Records, Radio Birdman, unsigned bands, a look at Sydney’s best metal bands from the 1980s, a look at Japan’s best metal bands from the 80’s too. There was also interviews with Gigi Hangach of Phantom Blue, Mark Easton (Suicide Squad / Kelpies / Candy Harlots), NYC’s Kevin K, Anne McCue, and Worcester’s Rick Cormier. There was a Freddy Lynxx special, and tribute shows to Satoshi Silvers of The Golden Arms, and Rick Blaze of The Ballbusters.  Hours and hours of great listening pleasure. So why not check it all out here.

Tune in for the fourth and final instalment in a series of shows – where Cowboy Col remembers Sydney’s heavy metal years of the 1980’s. That’s right, we were metalheads who grew up in Sydney, Australia and in this series we have been focusing only on Sydney bands, and bands who predominantly didn’t sign with major labels or make it big!  Tune in this Wednesday night the 29th of June at 8.30pm to hear some of the best  thrash metal to come out of Sydney from 1985-1989.

For over ten years Gigi Hangach fronted Los Angeles outfit Phantom Blue. Both Phantom Blue’s debut album from 1989 and their second major label release – 1994’s ‘Built to Perform’ have long been favourite albums of Mr Rockbrat. Tune in to hear an interview which I conducted with Gigi in Las Vegas on 22 December – where she discusses her life in rock n roll, Phantom Blue and much, much more !
