It's a daily
Talk Show Episode 455
in banter and of the radio today fine
we've got Scott
ready Mr. Hello thank you for having us what a pleasure it is to finally see in the flesh the great studio of the daily talk show I've already seen it
I know that's why I said I
know when you're talking on behalf of the band are talking just by itself. So when you want to talk just for yourself go this is a mic
and then when you told me for the band, obviously
Yeah, I'll say this is a statement from the band if it's just for me to say this is a statement just from me. So you've
got a band released this the sounds Yes Not to be confused with release the sound which is not a band, which is just deciding how much it domain names play a part in the name of the band?
Yes, I we
you have to get a band name that you can get the.com for and so we went through a few iterations of band names before we came across one that was available and release the sounds calm is available and you can buy merge there
look at this not available anymore because now we've got it
it's not available
as one of the merchant items like t shirt t shirt jumper
Can you just start typing in famous bands as domains and seeing if one of the big famous bands like Metallica? Did they have.com
tell you I'm sure you think Metallica I'm sure someone
magically went to Taylor swift.com was and it was just like GoDaddy is like this side is available you're like geez this week
the reality is his name is Blake on me spike don't know he doesn't know I think because I do hit Josh.
Julie said you limited was that we there was a guy who bought all these domain names. And I have bought a lot of domain names in my life. And I remember I was like, it was 20 2013 when I was looking as I wonder if any of these have laps Fifi box. No apps. Hey, Miss black. Last. I was like bullshit. And so I type in it because I've had this happen before where I thought a.com was about was available. You go through the whole thing and Go Daddy's like no, no, it's not a little that's happened where I'm very excited these other domain Exactly. So anyway, I was like, Okay, I'm gonna see if this works. I'm going to fucking message Hamish and say, hey, let's transfer it across. Sure enough, it worked. And so I was like, hey, I've got your domain name. He's so fucking chill. He still hasn't done anything with it. I said Hey, man, I'll set you up with a account or if it's like this so good. That's so good. We just have never
he never owned it because somebody years and years ago wrote into the show and and said, hey, go and look at Hamish black.com some guy who has the same name as you and rides a motorbike does a blog post about his motorbike Irish black calm. And so that must he must have left it and haven't got Radio
so this is interesting right Emeka commies taken because we were going to ice to work on this show called The Lucan Lewis show with Luke Cage and Louis spirits and they looked at Radio mike.com it's taken by some guy who works in radio production in like Sweden or something and we were going to do a storey arc on that shot and that was like let's take Radio mac.com from this guy we were going to call him he's numbers on the site never have enjoyed it probably because it was a bad idea. to eventually hard to on Radio mike.com
Have you contacted him?
No. I thought maybe I should like for my my podcast because it's not it's like a website built in like 1992
it's always the way that we always think that whoever has the domain name is some pathetic scumbag who's not using it to the full of their ability for
these your name a unique name as if you'd give it up why you either have to have left that behind you
not active that this site has not been updated but he's still paying $12 a year he made millions in radio the bullshit thing is your
first legal name is radio
sorry, that's the hard way because you know often I'm not taken seriously because my first name is radio.
com We MSA username I literally today writing the liner notes for the CD which will be available for the band and I didn't know if I could write like lyrics by jack post and Michael. What can I say username if you like around like
there is a storey behind this thing want me to tell you
one minute. Okay, so essentially I was looking at all like people in radio and what their names was like Tommy jacket, jack post. Josh Janssen I worked on the hot breakfast with Eddie McGuire Luke Darcy and will Anderson Hey mission ND and like the old like Amish like ND they all have like these names that just have rings to them. And then it's like oh, now it's time for the drive show on the radio with Michael Liberace no ringtone but right here Mike. If my name is radio Mike Adams. I am radio Mike where's my first name and surname? Just don't have that ring.
But it's got a good ring for like an evening sugar. Holly. Yeah. Hi. It's Michael liberality.
like a buck 57 Byron, which is a Melbourne radio. Radio fan.
Originally it was going to be sideshow Mike, but there's a guy called sideshow Mike who works for our company as an audio producer. So I had the script side
side the show
side. Simpson like Sideshow Bob. Yeah,
yeah, but someone's already got it. And
we actually, were doing some work on jack posts Wikipedia page A while ago.
Yeah, yeah. which no longer exists.
They took it down. And thank you for your help Josh.
I feel you might feel
OU on the wiki,
as well as the 97 set one up, got taken down. So
people want to take him
down. They do not know. Okay, I'm not
super level I'm a little bit notable. But why it's just more information for the world to have. Why does somebody go around looking for the Tommy jackets and jackpots the world and go, they should come off. They should be less information in the world about that.
We looked into the username of the person that took my mind down and I made up lots of storeys around that what was the name? I can't remember, but we not know but it was like you we saw how long they've been doing it for 10 years or something. Something ridiculous like this person. You just immediately think some sort of way just enjoy. That's exactly.
I had actually a good way on my side working for me and he contacted me through Instagram and said I hear you trying to get a Wikipedia Can I can help you I've done a lot of editing. He was the one who helped me get it there. And then he was the one who also warned me about the bad way he was trying to take me person Yeah, he's like oh, this guy is launching. What do you call it he's launching a defence against you an attack against you get you off just just keep it in mind and he then he was giving me tips to how to combat the defence but it's too hard and more than I did legit hobby.
It has to be in pain. They just asked to get people who are like
why is this guy so obsessed as a complete stranger getting me off the internet
Hey and now you redirect to the Christian O'Connell show you just redirect you type in your name it redirects well first that comes up with the steel pole the jackpot
and if you click that it just goes to the Christian O'Connell show
we did do a citation or like it we added a bit which was he's got a bit he started the band and we had your full name in there. And then we did say I don't know if this was your doing. But there was a change to radio Mike.
Did you edit my Wikipedia page? Yeah.
biggest supporter in the Wikipedia event of 2019 I'd love to see it get back up to be honest hashtag save Jack's Wikipedia. Thank you
yeah, like I I did change it. So I didn't know that was you but that's cool. We've interacted with you online several times.
Crazy stuff The Simpsons it's the release the sounds. Release the hands obviously even like release the hands Yeah, we struggled so much think of a bad name. It was difficult.
Well, I did and I wanted to call the band gas giants. You should understand that. Well, Gary das is a big menacing dragon like water dragon Pokemon from the Pokemon Nintendo franchise. And Jones is a common surname health. I just find that hilarious.
Darren, Josh Darren How would you spell Garrett nos
Gary das is Joe die I do with Garrett on
the band to do anything to do with Pokemon? Yeah, no, but I just thought
anyway, clearly we made the right choice not calling the band that Yeah, and going with released the sounds, but I don't think it was was ever an intentional Simpsons reference, but it was
just a little easter egg. But now we've got people who have been messaging me saying is the car on this logo, which you're wearing the jumper of? Is it the Simpsons car because in a full colour album artwork, yeah.
But that was an accident as well.
Yeah. Who did the artwork,
this great artist called kid Bennett who you guys everybody has to check out his Instagram page. He's amazing. He does this full scale artwork on skate parks like reservoir skatepark, Northcote skate park. And then when Google Maps updates with the the aerial view, that's cool. You can zoom in and see like a full size skeleton that takes up three basketball courts. Okay, there's on the ground.
That's so cool.
Yeah. And so with the Simpsons, I feel like he both have a large obsession.
Yeah, I love the Simpsons. I and I would say that it's a big comedic inspiration for me and the band, while serious does have comedic elements to it. And I think feel like it was inspired. Like I feel like both of us like grew up watching.
It actually says Don't forget the Yes.
But like, I think like comedically, like this, that would definitely be influenced
my absolute favourite show of all time.
What does that mean? I guess a comedic influence like you say, a lot.
not too much. A lot.
So many songs in The Simpsons
lyst who needs that quickie my
Who puts the we put the spring in Springfield and the Stonecutters song.
Lots of great songs. What was the first song that you guys ever covered together? That's
the theme song to the animated TV show Cat Dog from the Nickelodeon chair born little world with the
correct Mr. 97 cut in a bit of that clip yet.
Instagram's. But yeah, so I did this video and instal This is how the band started, which is a good segue. So what
I did this segues really good if you mentioned
I did this thing on Instagram, which was like I do you guys. Are you familiar with the shark? Cat Dog? Yeah, yeah, yeah. So the joint in the middle? Yeah, I did this. I did this thing where I talked about how I have. I had these two friends who are identical twins and they just don't get along. And they're also Simon's then I'm like, I wrote a song about him. I played the cat dog song. That was the joke. Everyone found that quite funny. And then jack goes, we should cover it together. Or maybe I said that I don't recall that detail. today.
What do you wanted to say?
radio Mike convinced jack place to start there.
JACK actually convinced
me to do the band. Is that you just being humble.
I think I'm cat you'd be done. Because you're a bit of a larrikin. dog is the stupid one. Yeah.
I mean, going from doing one cover together to saying, Let's start a band. I like it from this static point of view of like being a kid. Everyone wants to be in a band. Yeah.
I mean, I was in a band in high school, but I never got to the point of making an album record actually recording songs
on a JS around.
I had cool boys in the front bandwidth, the bandwidth, Hamish and Andy. But again, we never released an album. This is the first album I've ever released.
Are you allowed to swear on? What What was the name of your political theme song in your high school band? So I
didn't intend I was in a band called last chance. And we did have a song called fuck you bush. about george bush.
Yeah. Which one? The?
President? Yeah, who
was that inspired by green die? I feel like
the song drummer right the song. I did sing every drummer
out so why did you feel
American influence as well as like, yeah,
we have no right to write a song.
Like a band from the inner city suburbs of Melbourne. Yeah. could write a song about a
young guy. Remember Michael?
George W. Bush. And what we all grew up for.
It was the prime minister was
a song called
you. You started you you did this song. And then one of you we don't know who What? Why we may never know said we should start a band.
No, it was you. Yeah.
I have nothing to do with okay.
I agreed to do it. Yeah. And then we sort of it was on hold for a while it took ages this were actually
gone. Last year.
Yeah. And yeah. How was
it? I mean, this is boring. But we went to a guy called URI URI produce our album shout out to URI if he's listening or watching he's worked on shows such as a lot of Sean McCallum a lot of famous TV shows
he worked on like big by which was
mad as hell at the moment
and he found this this episode through radio today. So you get a theory
and you bring your mind a little bit closer to looking
but 97 he boost my volume?
But before you
have is Micah it seems quite normal
97 Can you put some reverb on my mark Did you can you just talk
Yeah, okay. Okay
good little if you go nice and close
it that storey I was telling about you is boring.
Before we went to your we write we write songs.
So I went to Japan and I'm write a song in Japan, which will be the second single Yeah, and I sent a text to jack it's coming up next Friday. Next week. That's the second single it's called the Instagrams on liked my posts, and I was walking to the streets of Tokyo. I just realised and this is the social commentary of the song everyone's on on their phones all the time. No one's paying
attention and more so then
Australia, no less are here but my eyes will open to how they live differently to us. Right? They were all aware of what was going on.
They were on their phones for the Japanese Australians. I was on my phone I was like
I'm in Japan. Why am I on my phone? Right okay, right Don't tell me any of this. Oh, well that was I was gonna do it on the commentary over the album that I think we
just take this but
anyway, I wrote that song Jacquard attached to string and this other song called the Doctor song which never made it to really made it to the production and we have to try and kill that song. Was it wasn't that good a song?
What was it about? It was
talking about not good songs micro song about nostalgia.
It's really bad
to tell him it's sex.
Yeah, we both agreed that soccer when we tried to write a chorus together and like yeah, cut some of the audio Mr.
Mike, do you actually ready a mic? Sorry. Yes. Do you actually we can put radio in there do you actually write something in presented to jack and just Fingers crossed saying this at the CD?
I'm gonna pull this Yeah,
I wrote that song. I sent like like I said I sent it as a text the lyrics as a text cuz like giant message WhatsApp because I was like, well, it wouldn't matter but I didn't have an iPhone at this point. Which is a good thing for the like fans of the band tonight. I can just yet track the history of yeah what point did market and I was January ICF that now we can do
want I was on a Samsung Galaxy I said
yeah, we're using a stylist
and I have stylist no I was just using my fingers and
oh my god it looks like a stylist and then
I said to jack Hi this is the song like the lyrics were like pride our type lyrics I'm like this is what it should sound like it want it to sound like a pop punk kind of it the the song I would compare it to most when I was writing it was the song gives you hell by all American rejects Mr. 97 which has this big breakdown where it's like when I see your face and give you how everyone's clapping right if you when you hear the song you might say that and then jack kind of wrote the music to it. And
no lyrics is kind of the easy part we can all just words the the music is really what makes a band and I wrote the music to that song.
Yeah, but I i creatively consulted on the song.
I would say I was the chief creative consultant on the album. No
decisions of the band.
Did you genuinely have blow ups?
No. It was a smooth process like yeah, we found a few disagreements on the songs were like just little ones and we kind of just negotiate that Yeah,
we were doing the editing the video Yeah. Which came out today. It came out yesterday.
When did it come in
the puppet song that we did yesterday Titanic we couldn't agree on most of the edits for that
are not might like there was a few that we will like I like it better like that. I referred to some of the cuts jack wanted to make us a year 10 Media class cuts.
You guys as video spread as you would know curtains opening along with
this kind of cut you to where it's this is from the same camera shot so the angle doesn't change but it just skipped forward in time.
Yeah. Jump can.
Do you think that's an unprofessional cut? Or do you think it's stylistic? it?
Doesn't make sense.
Does it feel fine like it when you watch it?
Jerry made and paste the video click Add to cut like that, ya
know, it ended up being really good. And we're really happy with it.
But you called it a an
impression that what you wanted was something a year 10 student would do. But now I know that it's not and I apologise to any attends musically speaking, I think we were both pretty on the same page the whole time. Like every song just it was really easy to write and record like we, you know, one of us would come with a concept and then we'd sort of finished writing it together. And then in the studio we'd like work on the songs together and creatively just like literally negotiate with each other.
Have you spoken about what the plan is? Now you're going to be doing a small to a great question.
That is the elephant in the room is are we going to play live or not? Because we're going to play live for the first time on your show today. We've never done it before. We don't really know how to play with like a drummer and stuff. A lot of the some
of the songs. There's only eight songs on the album. Yeah, I reckon we couldn't be live just by saying when you hear the album, you'll know why. Because they're just not. They're not traditional songs necessarily.
We could do
a 45 minute track.
It's ambient music. Yeah, we could play I think all the songs acoustically. But the album they've got drums and bass and everything. Yeah,
But we don't want out of it. What do you what do you guys think you actually want? I think the the part that's fun has been this last two weeks, like
yeah, putting out the word putting out the song putting out the album in a couple of weeks. Like this is the fun part. I'm tearing down the promise. So
what is what does it mean? Like doing this project? What does success look like? What do you what do you want it to be?
I think we what we've already done is like awesome like I'm really I'm actually for a while it didn't even look like we were going to get here.
So it's a this is your final appearance. No.
Today, get to the studio today, on a get to the release, release of the album and like talk about it. You know what I mean? Yeah, like, for a while like it was pretty static. We had our first meeting with our music video guy, Angus. He's a mate of mine. like four months ago. We're like, All right, we're going to start the music video soon. Three months later, we hadn't started them yet. Yeah, we had
long periods during this journey where we didn't do anything for the band. And then we have weeks like this where I mean I can't stop thinking about the band making the CD outward outwork I'm riding the line and notes and Instagram videos about the band
one of the full time job as well so it can
I definitely don't have a full time job. I don't even know what you should
really be doing some more heavy lifting.
The chief marketer and marketing capes
do you think is the chief marketer actually use the words I'm Marketing here
at the top of the band like decision making creative control and I'm right at the bottom I'm driving back there's a coffin that we're using in this as a problem in the next video which gets released next week. I have to drop the coffin back to
spots which ordered the coffin and paper
what's the coffin? Where'd you get it from?
Enjoy you know no the prop store again you know second single there is a scene that involves up coffin in the music someone Enos
someone get in it.
These coffin has the ability for someone to get in but we did not use it. Well, I didn't want to ruin that now people
no no it gets in the car. No one gets in the car.
Video going to come out
in the shooting of the video. No one was in the coffin. But in the context of the video some.
Mike's gramma in the argument?
think in the video I'm playing myself I think I'm playing someone. Grandma photo we use wasn't my grandma. Yeah, right. So I think I'm playing a different version of me kind of like how Jerry Seinfeld played himself.
Playing Mike but not not me. I'm playing a mic in the video.
When did you actually work that out? Was that when you?
I've thought a lot about the backstory of a lot of the characters in the songs. Yeah, yeah, there's a lot of like,
you know, I do have a full time job.
A lot of these songs like a narrative face. Would you agree? Yeah, like that. It sort of starts with a funny concept. For example, there's a song about can we talk about the show there's a song about when you the phenomenon of forgetting to wear a belt, and your genes are kind of all day they're slowly just kind of falling down. You're constantly and what you know that Yeah,
not right now. Yeah, right now.
Little Mix and these little weeks.
And that song just started. That's actually an interesting one. I had a dream where jack wrote a song
called pants off. One of Tommy's big rules. Interesting. Talking about dreams
on this show. Okay, well, I say you say you had a thought I had a thought
that turned into a song that we just developed a narrative around
like the action taken after the dream Yeah, it's usually when people trying to explain something they've forgotten so
you've turned it into a song which is good.
Yeah. So if you want to talk to me about your dream Microsoft please do what radio marketing
I guess like most of the songs we turned it into a song all the songs started as thoughts in our heads and then we turned them into music.
Isn't that how old songs
I think Mozart was just coming like I
never would have thought of
a john or somebody who's doing this similar style music to what you guys I want
no one's doing what we're doing.
But if you say night it's like
a big punk rocky I guess
jack black is he say tonight The first song on the album is I would say sounds a lot like it's
not the first single which was not a single the first song
which is your account
with the singles in this album. It's already
been released an album this week. And I listened to it. I was like, I wonder if there's any good tracks on this. It was like four that had been released months and months and months ago. Wow, I picked up the bunch that have been released. So why why do you do that? Well,
I guess because people don't need albums anymore because they run streams you don't really need to release whole album at once. You could just do single after single after single
Yeah, Peking duck have never released an album them. All their songs are seen and we have
I mean, I didn't want to say it.
People talk about LPs or what is it? LP No. Yeah,
there's a piece one play LPs alongside extended play.
Okay, so EP, I feel like I managed a band once. A two bands. One of them was feed your monkey which was my brother's old band. Yeah. And they didn't EP Why would they have done an EP? I know I should have known this.
As have less Sonic? I guess they're not short enough to be a single but they're not long enough to be an album. I mean, realistically, I feel like
we're I got a bonus track of cap dogs.
Are there any albums? that do have just eight songs
kind of West? He's released those one that wasn't that long.
Mr. 97 Can you pull up all bands that have done it?
Yep. Yep, that's actually something good but then you get someone like Drake
the relation 2025 so it's crazy.
Yeah, certain things you did manage.
Monkey managing requires actually getting on the phone look at this Great
Bear. What so the other thing too is I also managed a band called my own enemy, which was a scream Oban
isn't it? Yeah, but I think they mainly just wanted free filming. And so they said.
But we need the manager to be there at every event filming.
But also manage the editing. Feed your monkey. I just helped with their connected by getting their websites ordered.
You were the web guy.
Yes. The web guy was a webmaster.
Yeah. But I mean, do you guys have a manager
be Marketing Officer this
many. This is the hard thing about being to like two people. For people who are obsessed with hierarchy doesn't give you much.
Like we don't ever manage a your manager, your talent manager because Jack's radio talent
or radio and your name.
Kathy helped us
I mean, Kathy helped manage a bit of it like particularly like the scheduling of what we were doing, which we didn't keep to it all I think the album was supposed to. And then URI like, I guess manage the production of the songs. And then Angus is is managing the video shoots but we don't have like a central manager we
would probably be co managers. So this
is there's been a bunch of bands in history that have been absolutely rotted when they've become successful. Yeah, because they probably haven't sold they should say now like even happened to in the future. There's so much money there. It can go fucking pear shaped.
Yeah. Do you want a so we were
splitting everything. 5050
we're in a business.
said some lively costs. For the session drummer.
We're currently we're currently in a lot of debt.
Made nowhere. So what are the pain? The costs? The music videos, the drama, merge samples, merge sample, how good is it getting? I got so pumped with the difference between replicated and duplicated like when my brother
literally this morning Josh,
actually this morning. So replication being the actual stamping like proper legit CDs versus
people still bought CDs.
Yeah. Two different talk. Yeah. And so implication is just like burning say day like you wouldn't have.
And so replication is the one that you really want. But the great thing is it's like the technology has, I remember in 2009 or 2008 it just become so affordable now to
replicate. Do you think how many say days? Do you think we should order? 1000? Not YT? Many? Hundred
and 50. I'll say I was gonna go 50. I was gonna say 100. Right? So it's good. It's good artwork.
And people buy us a souvenir rather slave. It's not a slave but it's one of the cardboard nice opening.
How much are they put you in?
selling them for or get them for you? Then we really talking?
Yeah, I'm getting $7 and five cents per unit to buy it for me to buy or
not but then it would go down to high.
But sounds hard
per unit but for something now I will
be finishing up for $20 where are you getting it done? Do we say that kind of stuff is it?
I reckon is probably the place that I looked at years ago. Yeah, extreme technology.
It was called implant meteors in Brunswick. I can see my house
getting higher and prices as it goes out.
You can actually get a lot cheaper version but then you don't get like a lot for some reason. Last class.
State like records. What should we do some finals?
Maybe? I think we do signed copies. Me and you sign them? Yeah. No, send them out. Would you guys
find fun? Yeah, sign posters.
I'm making the artwork for the CD and stuff at the moment. Sure. I leave a little gap on the album where we can put our signature even a little blank book.
You just sign the cover.
Any updates for us? We've asked you a few things today.
Yeah, so those albums, a few of the other people Led Zeppelin meatloaf.
to do with Bruce Springsteen, I feel like it's less to do with the amount of tracks and more like length of Oh, yeah,
but main left banks like 10 minute songs. Whereas album together is probably
was like 29 minutes.
look it up coming. I do because I run my whole thing.
Is that anyway,
one of the songs is out. So you can use that and then like extrapolate the data.
I think I got 1000 say days for feed your monkey. But I got them imported from Singapore. They got them debt, like the first time ever doing something. And just boxes and budget boxes from DHL. The shipping costs the same price as the actual CD. How much now I would have the
money Phaedra monkey say days is still sitting in your mom and dad. We just got very sort of just
liberal with its
Troy contrast because
which is annoying, because he then realise that 50 cents he
took we're just handing out
the show, right? Yeah, well,
let's say my Chief Marketing Manager, that's a office manager, Chief Marketing Manager, I would say that's a great idea.
I don't go got stickers. Now. They're on the way. Yeah,
but you didn't even know.
The chief marketing guy doesn't even know what's there. What's the how many different designs did you actually get done? How many different versions of artwork?
So you've got the one and then I saturated the colours myself? I really Yeah, he gave us he gave us the Photoshop file. We didn't actually ask him if it's okay to put a white and black and white version. I'd be furious. Because he might we don't know if he's particular about colour.
palettes he is. But now you've said it on this podcast. So I'm
I love this Beavis and butt head vibes from you, jack. I love it.
Yeah, you know what? That's the most common thing people are writing on Instagram to me, but we're young
for this artwork. We actually did this like we sat on a car.
Have we got the footage? Not the sky.
Put it on. You've got a subreddit. Now.
We want to get one
we want to get us on Reddit. Someone started Reddit duck, you've got a sub. I subscribe to I always
say get on it. Get on your subreddit you have a lot of we get nothing
was a time where I was like you know what? Fuck Instagram. Just going to do subreddit Can we do it was probably 50 episodes where every episode of my make sure you sign up to our subreddit. We literally got 20 it's it fluctuates between 23 and
we actually got more trolling on that subreddit from people saying you guys don't update this subject. But the thing about separate it's the usually it's like nicknames other than if you give yourself the nickname ready Mr. Mr. 97 they work best when someone else creates him so there's all these random is created
we've created under a fake account I imagine and pretend we're not as a post on there is if we're not so wise posts on Hey, we should read it as yeah no person even though he's a producer of the show.
Yeah, you pushing your own agenda. I always
answer people's questions like about the show like diagnose how I know you they spit like like
but yeah, like I have done that. But
my one Mike's got his own podcast which you should plug
he's definitely you You are the one that emails radio tonight with likes
podcast and he went on to the machine Andy subreddit as as a regular person said, Hey guys, I just discovered sometimes mentioned on a mission and his podcast. He's got his own podcast. seems cool to me. It wasn't me. Working
I only posted the one you came on as me I'm like hey guys, I'm Mike. I work on the show thought you guys might be interested in hearing from jack and you know what? Someone commented saying they loved it. So I was right at 111 listens that when
Yeah, one listen to when this is why Mark and I want a subreddit for the band because during this whole journey, we've put in a lot of minor details that nobody would really notice. We want our hardcore fans
that the only problem is this is the last day of the band.
But like we've done stuff like people don't know this, but we've taken photos like in a room were behind us on a whiteboard. The entire track listening to the album was just written and I'm like, Oh, this is one for the hardcore fans. They'll say it on the boil
on the subreddit like
listing a red herring to they do by mistake
was this purpose. I can't remember how it worked out the end of a CD there was like an extra track bonus track had the end but you could have to get to it had you get to it.
No, sometimes a track would play it's on Dickie Brenda
It was either attached to one tracks of a silent
eight minutes of silence and then it would stop playing
some bands did do this thing where you could put a bonus track on like track zero so you actually on the press back on that one and it would go to track zero hidden that
I remember doing sheet like
a subreddit, we will do heaps of little easter eggs like yeah, people can really enjoy the
biggest a strike is that you notice a day player? Yeah.
Yeah, I mean, I love who did this. Shawn Mendez released a new album with the whole tape sent it over but so did Gemma what's posted a thing of beauty brand or brand, her record? And then she's like, Oh, I got this record. But how am I gonna play it then remove the thing and there's a record player that they sent through. But they said about the I mean that's that's where it becomes as a marketing expert. Yeah, Mark, you
totally know the unit price on sending everybody a record player.
yeah, I can you can get 35 bucks. Or I can you can probably get it Yeah. 35 to 50 bucks from China.
Now we want everything Australia made let's say these 150 Oh, sorry. The stickers are coming from overseas. Your window stickers from I don't know but you can tell that they're not in Australia mode. They get a come from somewhere else. What do you don't know?
Well, it just says it's what's the domain name? Why did you buy them sticking your stick? You know? Yeah, I can.
Do you want to find out where that's from?
Yeah, and all is just to stick him You always
come back company was sticker printing is not Australian
really know how to save for
this just this morning, someone contacted me on instagram from Perth. He runs a sign shop. And he said he'll make us some stickers free. Might. Oh, well. Why didn't you go with him? Well, I already ordered the stick of your one. We can get we can we can get different we can do but
yeah. Yeah. I mean, sorry. He can't do but this is a band meetings. Go
Yeah. The on the CD thing. The Offspring. They'll one of my favourite bands growing as we came in tonight. We were listening to them. Yeah.
first concert I ever went to offspring. Really? And I had the album and then I'll have a shirt signed by the offspring.
Do you remember the album? Welcome to Americana.
Yeah. agrees I make that pretty fly for a walk.
Yeah, but I am I saw ready on Mike. You did a video with Luke Kitchell where you went through a bunch of songs. Yeah, I don't think I saw the offspring. I
thought after that. Damn, we forgot the offspring. Yeah, I love the
book because you talk about blink 182 Yes, I'm 41 Yeah, all of these great. Simple Plan even got to mention Can
I say that the song original prankster by the offspring is one of my favourite songs of all time. He said that every track that you
actually this is my favourite song. But this
one is it's such a good song.
is that how what were you listening to when you doing a? An album? How long did it take? First of all? The actual like recording time? How much? studio time? Six months?
Yeah, but how much like we were going in sometimes once every fortnight. So yeah. You know, how many days do we do? Maybe? 1215? Yeah,
yeah. So much work.
Yeah. I mean, it's real. It's a real job. It's
15 days a year. It's really tough.
When you hear it, like it sounds sort of real. I mean, you've heard the first single did it sound real to you? Did it sound like it sounds like a legitimate Yeah, song. I mean, like, the quality of my singing is not. It's not 100% but
the song sounds real. I was watching Travis Scott's documentary.
I was hoping one of you guys were going to go like Ah, she's cool. B perfect
genre. When they mixing the album.
They go down with the mix track and they play it in the car and listen to it there to hear how it sounds.
played it through the car. We play through Bluetooth, remember?
Yeah, yeah, no, we did do that. I used to listen at the gym, like in my headphones and
like trying to pick up
listening to my own album while running on the treadmill
for watching this show. Now you go to the gym.
monks have not been in months. But are you making now?
But yeah, we Yeah, we've listened to the songs and we'd like sometimes the mixes still have a gym membership. Yes, I pay for it every fortnight. 23 $24 What place which jets gym in Hawthorne? How long is the contract? There's no contract. I could cancel any comment on it. But like I don't want to cancel I want to pay for the gym so I can die. I just haven't been
here. That's crazy. Because for a while you're going twice a day
14 times a week.
Like Sundays off
five times awake. Yeah.
That's the fucking Hugh Jackman routine. What the Yeah.
Show me Wolverine ring.
It's not like the fitness first way go to they've got patch Express, which is like smoothies and stuff with Do they have like a place where you can work and in age, like with the times where you know? Yeah,
not trying to justify the gym membership.
But we use the desk.
He's describing a co working space.
That was actually actually Jim
No, like, what were we talking about? The got onto this the Bluetooth? The song?
Yeah. Because when you mix it, you go down and listen to it. If it sounds good on the device, yeah. Is there the problem of also listening to yourselves because we
can't do it
not listening to you guys listening to us. Listen to you guys.
Because it was so exciting. Like, we just wanted to hear that. And we are really passionate about the songs like we love it.
Yeah. I actually got a kick from putting it back through the Bluetooth and listening. Real speaker. And
yes, we made that.
I wanted to show everyone like I would show people like my brother. I'd always make him listen to all the drive. Yeah, no, I just took as Chief Marketing Manager, I just decided to market the songs to people early. But yeah, if there's a lake
was there any feedback that you got? That wasn't great? And how did you deal with it?
Probably the most offensive feedback we got is before when you said the singing doesn't have to be perfect.
Like, do people give negative feedback? Well,
Josh always asks, give us you know, give us some lamb me.
But no one ever does. It's always wrapped in cotton.
My wife does give pretty honest feedback. Yeah, cuz she doesn't think much of your songs on the album.
I know why doesn't get bad feedback. He's babies gonna cry.
You play these songs to people, they don't really have a choice but to see.
You put the phone and you play it.
Sometimes they start commenting, they're like, you know, they hear a line. They're like, Oh, that's pretty funny. You know?
The next slide is funny.
I actually when we're in LA last we did an interview with a producer friend of ours like a music producer, Josh Simon. And he he was playing some of the
band go to America. Yeah, definitely.
And he was at playing some music for us that he produced. It had great monitors he was playing it on and there's a thing that happens when someone plays their music and a bob starts and it feels like the only polite thing to do is I'll say so way and it makes sense because he's it's someone else singing and all that sort of thing. So he's getting right into it and I was catching myself I sort of had this out of body experience where I was just you know, I just said
you already had some houses. Yes. So
there was someone the other day was talking about mimosas. And I was like, like the Indian dish. But it's the most is I was trying to work out what it is. If you're listening to the daily talk show and you heard me say that some mostly
alcoholic beverages not Indian trades
so good great
guy on the hunt for sushi
literally in here for two minutes
it's a podcast studio
just cut us up some seminar
he would do that
so you're not sure we need to work out what you're doing next.
Can we cannot take this moment to and we've been rude because we haven't mentioned it yet but Josh
maybe we could
that as well if he wants
to sign your name
the 14th of September
Here we go. He tells
this is awful I'm sorry
I don't know the song.
Can we just
go just 97 for the rest
fucking ruined my birthday. Birthday. Just that last bit? This is just
Happy birthday to you. Happy Hey, can you Happy Birthday to You
Happy Birthday GH
seven that was beautiful.
Thank you Mike usually the backup tonight
Josh asked me to harmonise really threw
on American Pie
seven we're on something really well we might be starting at seven what's
results ah ah probably edge here in perfect All right, you guys you didn't lead vocals Mike you do the backup vocals.
I'm not gonna be main but if the lead vocals if the main vocals aren't on point the harmonies can't be good well I was in the Boys Choir
Okay, yeah go for it man. And he's also he's also like
what's the first lyric again?
And then when the night when the when the when the
step by me
which was in the movie
is the only boom boom boom that was right
yes BOOM BOOM BOOM BOOM BOOM BOOM BOOM
just as long as you stay stay me 97
we should we need to get
that song easy not sandlot kids. I think The Sandlot
it's in it's probably in standby me.
It's always Yeah, it's in the middle.
Damn, I may feel like similar. I said
the other day is like one with a really warm healing the train track. Yes.
Yeah, you know, it's only called The Sandlot kids in Australia,
The Sandlot in the US. I remember my brother actually brought a deal. He was touring the us with a basketball team. And they like DVDs very inexpensive. And I remember the us it was like $18 and so we got a Panasonic multi Region DVD player. He brought all the DVD and The Sandlot Yeah.
And even Chucky you like what's
crazy. Well, we had Nick Ray, Nick revolt,
Nick brave. Oh,
no. He was throwing because of how he said it.
Yeah, because in America it's Nick revolt. And in Australia
they say no, when we live we live with him last week. But the way he said his name is not how I say reward. I call him
reward reward. Yeah.
He says revolt. Yeah, exactly. He said it like that. And I was like, Fuck, I've been calling this guy the wrong I've been slandering this guy the wrong name his whole life. He said it differently anyway,
similar to the same
favourite film that he'd been watching with these young kid was The Sandlot and I was like it fucking butchered the name of his movie
knows right but he was
movie is the one that was making him smile. We're doing a video for bond straight dental. And the whole question was what makes you smile and he said I said what movie is in the sand might need to actually bought a baseball for
that's when I say that the one with the train tracks. Now the fact that not a fact that
and so podcast, you've got your podcast radio mine.
Yeah, I do a podcast called 20th century boy, which is up to its 34th episode, which is a just pass. Yeah. What's the Spirit's been like it's been really good Yeah, I it's it's about a pop culture. And it's about me exploring my mental health through my history of pop culture and what I've liked growing up and trying to explore my identity through what have you learned about yourself? Not much so far.
I really good but yeah. Funny.
Yeah, I have a few people that work on the show with me not not unlike your show with Mr. 97 and three day deal he's no longer on the show.
But I've just gone he's gone back. He wasn't wasn't fine.
We'll be flying the coop. Yeah. Let the young man fly.
I've got like he's not a bird and he does what
Mr. 97 does like he sits there and like you know sometimes try and see and and then
it doesn't seem when you want him to be boys birthday. And you just want one thing for your birthday. That's young.
Do so Mike's characters on the shows you see him doing different voice
I know they're not characters. They're real big. I got an intern who's year I he goes to high school and we just happen to be in and then I've got a system
you actually do it. He hits him. It's
like doing the voices but you
know, real characters are coming in every way. And I think it's a good credit to them that you'll
say that we try to do with misty 97 all the harmonies with your characters I have done
I did an episode in which in turn Mike who is the intern on the podcast? This is Episode 14, I believe or 13 or 14 is a good number if
you listen to Episode 14 of our show.
Wow. He left the show and he decided to sing a song which was You Raise Me Up by Westlife and ended the mic. The editor did a few harmonies in there as well. So yeah, I have done something like that. I will want to do a few more musical things.
And he's an intern Mike here right now. Not
Oh, yeah. And he goes to Sunday school because he's failing he has to go to school on Sundays to catch up to catch up programme at school. Really? Jackie,
you've got a couple of shows that you're on. Yep. The Christian corner bring in a chance for you to play.
on iTunes. You have a billboard
Yeah, I'm not on it. I'm sad. You know, don't really
mind can we just Can we just do another round where it's you looking over? Everyone's just like, I see that billboard normally what the hell?
If I had the time and energy I would do you know people do paste ups around Melbourne? Yeah, I would put myself on one of the show board.
question to you. Just quickly. We you ever do your own? Do you think you do your own podcast? Now? gronk.
I don't think so. I love that idea. I love podcast. I love what you guys are all doing but
you know what up to the task. I'm busy. I'm
busy. I got a full time job doing the footy thing again.
But last year you did the free streaming.
I'm not it. I have not been invited back. Really? That was so good. Well, they're not doing it again. What I've seen except in my pop up anyway, now. Yeah. From what I see until it pops up.
That'd be annoying. Can we tell one tidbit about the band? Do you remember the thing about the band and the footy show? Can we tell that?
Remember, they say at the start of the year, the footy show will completely revamped. And before we did the band and even done anything, because of URI who's producing the album and his connection with TV, he said, Hey, the footy shows desperate for pretty much any type of entertainment. Do you guys didn't quite say I read between the lines. He said I contacted you? Do you guys want to pitch like a song each week for the footy show?
And I know nothing about 40 So Jeff calls me it's like, Hey, we gotta do this thing on the British and I was like, ah, like, I have no idea how I can make this relevant. And there's actually a punk band in Melbourne called picket palace and they do that song Anthony McDonald tipping body and I did one called Rick show which would have been a much better fit. Obviously we said No, and I think that might have been a good idea because the show
I thought you're gonna say I think that might have been the downfall of the footy show.
No, but I think the show like you got cancelled Yeah, it's a shame.
I would have been terrible for the band's first outing to be in a cancelled show.
Yeah, but how funny is that? How crazy I love the song title revolt
this band picket palace who've done the to the some rich oh really good. Man they're set for life down just doing football songs. Go back to normal music No,
they came in when I was at work all set up that sounds like getting a package okay.
They came in I was working on the hot breakfast at triple M and they came in and performed it live it was awesome. You've got to listen to this song
It's crazy. I've seen them perform before told me that you have to location of a second video clip.
Oh really? Yeah. Which is where? Kobe velodrome which we are shooting today. Yeah, straight after this. Yeah,
yeah. If you guys want to be extras in a video we're busy today.
already. I mean
we wouldn't What are you what are you doing?
Well, human periscope pictures. It was a nice package. Oh
my goodness. He
can you show us how big the package is? points. That's about that big.
Probably bad free shoe boxes along? Yeah, yeah. One actually.
Can I just say we plugged a lot of pickup palace and they are a great band. But the purpose of this podcast was to provide a live
album. Is it going to be in regards to what I'm doing today? might pay to shepherd is doing a talk at TEDx at Melbourne Uni. Very cool, but can we listen on Spotify?
Yeah, you can listen on Spotify, Apple Music, any streaming service you can buy it on iTunes, the music videos on YouTube just type it We just want it to be free for everybody. Yeah.

I don't take off but I will it's

such a good idea by them hey I don't know how they became like the go to blank t shirt or jumper on this I did and then everybody just does that good quality the head of marketing

digital but it looks really like Digital's come such a long way. Yeah, it looks it looks like look at that. It's good. It feels great. Yeah.
The pic I'll be using for today's performance is I forgot to bring a good topic so Tommy gave me his old boating licence. Yeah, and I've cut out a good topic and it's the photo of your head
it's actually having more uses a pic than it ever did is an actual boat loss and how how many times did you go to the boat zero?
I mean, you've got a Jets membership, you know?
Is there any physical component
to the boat driving test or do you just have to eat it? Yeah, like do you have to go out in parallel?
You can pay money do a weekend so it's a Saturday Yeah, get your boat licence you can drive up to like a look it up missing it. But if 52 foot by boat so I could drive a small ship. It just can't be a commercial boat. Because then you need a commercial licence. But do
a show from a ship do a show. Tommy drive?
No need literally it's all textbook
Yeah, just written test. You don't have to show them you know how to go. So
you read the textbook.
They fireproof they literally it's like your RSA. You have you ever done your RSA now? But you watch a whole bunch of videos and you do some
footwork? Well, that's what that's what Bry did. She just did the first aid stuff. And now that you want to pass Yeah, but the thing is when you want to.
You also want it to be
that's how the Titanic sank man. He didn't have his boat licence.
Same as a I mean, they're just it's a bit more of a car licence like he should have to redo your car. As you get older.
When I was in school, one of the debates we did was you should you have to retake your driver's licence at 70 I was no negative. I was talking about the fact that we need to give elderly people independence and this was taking away all of that. Fun fact on the pic. Or pics in general, your one and only comedy show that you ever did. Yeah, the marketing of that show was a jack post pic.
Yeah, that's a you the chief marketing manager was
that Josh did help with that. That is a cool idea. We should have done that for the band giveaway for your topics. Yes, everybody kept them.
Yeah, what's the unit price?
Very cheap. Yeah,
it wasn't expensive pics and I look good.
Yeah, no great and you put a like a businessman and then stapled it so it would all sort of staying you could end it off the ground.
Look, if you're looking for a new marketing coordinator
I'll be the manager.
Coordinating that getting the shit done. Let's be honest. Anyway. So let's play.
Are we doing it here?
Yeah, so here we go.
97 can you give me a bit more volume in my mind?
Can we get a year 10 fade into a real version
Have you standing up doing well deli talk show
first single is called attached to string and it's out now attached to strange to string. Okay,

demo. Nice thing about the subreddit again.
Yeah, this is stuff that people in the south Yeah, it would care about sorry.
The work doesn't exist yet.
They were working titles for all the songs Yeah, the working title for this was puppet song puppet song and the mp3 that I sent you Josh was published so yeah, so that's why when we set a touch to string you, for example, the song there's another song in the album which is called don't put me on hold and the working title for that was called vegan song. Yeah, but you'll learn more about that when the album comes out before we marketing manager out
