Leo Ulph Interview Review, Punk Rock News and Tom’s Birthday

February 22nd, 2022

On this episode of the Banned Biographies podcast your host, Tom Austin-Morgan, and talks about what’s been going on in the last month and what you can expect from the next episode.

Firstly I’d like to thank Leo Ulph once more for the time he took to talk to me on last month’s interview episode, he’s such a nice bloke who I think is so engaging to listen to.

There has been a slew of reviews on Apple Music this month, all from the UK and all with five stars, so I give them a shout out, it was a really nice surprise to get so many in such a short space of time, and I noticed that the show charted higher in the Apple Music rankings, so there definitely is a correlation between the number of reviews and how visible the show is in the search, so keep it up, guys, it really does help.

As promised, I debut a news section from the world of punk from February including stories about The Dwarves, the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame nominations, Angels And Airwaves, The Undertones, IDLES, The Last Gang, Jesse Michaels and Tim Armstrong performing a live version of Operation Ivy's "Sound System", Cancer Bats, Killing Joke, Green Day’s Billie Joe Armstrong's car being stolen then found, New Found Glory, Beavis And Butt-Head, Dropkick Murphys, The Real McKenzies, Cro-Mags, Fontaines D.C., Frank Turner scoring his first number one album with FTHC and a review of the album, and Adam Ant.

I also talk about my birthday on the 20th February where I celebrated by playing two shows within 24 hours with my very first punk band, High Frequency our first in about 11 years. The reception we had from both audiences we played to over the weekend we really warm and engaged, people genuinely seemed to enjoy the songs we were playing, some of which are 19 years old now! So maybe covers aren’t the way forward after all? I’d like to thank Ant and Corky as well as our wives and partners for putting up with the disruption to their weekends and especially to the people who put us on the line ups for these two shows and finally to all the people who listened and even bough CDs which have been gathering dust in my loft for the last decade! If you want to find us, we’re on Facebook and Instagram @high_frequency_rocks or you can listen to that album by searching Welcome To Apathyville on Spotify.

Until next time, take careand stay safe.
