If you’ve used YouTube any time in the past year or so, you’ve probably been met with a volley of pesky in-video adverts before actually being allowed to watch the clip of your choice. But can we really complain? Nick, Dani and Tom discuss.
With seamless banter, chilled out guests and ample lol’age, ‘The Loose Five’ is one pod pod* worth dedicating a Saturday arvo (post-Streetcast) listening to.
Presenters Marcel Blanch-de Wilt and Paul K Stalenhoef unite every week to record, usually at Marcel’s house, producing some quality com com* for their fans’ earholes.
Duly recognised as a ‘New and Noteworthy’ podcast on iTunes, keep an eye out for Loose Five-related merchandise and possible cult expeditions.
Until then, as Streetcast’s Tom Angley uncovered, you’ll have to make do with their upcoming live show at the Crown and Anchor on February 5…
What do you get when you mix members of top Adelaide bands The Honey Pies, The British Robots, Central Deli Band and Cheer Advisory Council with an exceptionally talented mandolin player reared on folk music? The Wild Things! A who’s who of local musicians fusing bluegrass, rock, country and 60s pop to deliver melodic, harmonic and timeless songs.
The five piece are set to release their debut album At The Crossroad in March but in the meantime you can catch them live at Ed Castle this Friday night. Band members Hugh, Mark, Alex and Luke stopped by the Streetcast studio ahead of the show for a chat with Danni Frangos and to play a couple of live tracks, including a stripped back Blur cover!

Lord Stompy is one of Adelaide’s musical legends. Whether he’s performing solo or collaborating with other musicians, Stompy is a regular fixture on the local scene; commonly found with a pirate-like swagger, finely-cultivated facial hair, and trademark harmonica.
Mind you, there are few (if any) instruments he can’t play. Lord Stompy is even a master of spoken word performance.
He’s built a reputation as an all-round showman, and is also known for being quite a character… as Streetcast found out, when His Lordship stopped by for an interview and a shanty or two.
You can catch Lord Stompy in action at the Worldsend next Friday (25th January) with Captain Hellfire and the Wretched Brethren, and Shipwrecked in the Desert. And look out for his harmonica lessons and jam nights at The Gov from February!

Citizens of Adelaide, get your car horns tuned and road rage insults ready… The Tour Down Under is in town and lycra-loving, leg-shaving, Lance-hating cyclists are dominating the streets!
This week, Nick, Bella and Mason discussed the sport and shared stories of our personal experiences with cyclists on the road. We also talked a little about the bare-faced-lying-bad boy Lance Armstrong in light of his revealing interview with Oprah Winfrey (#dopra).
