Well here it is, the last show for 2017! And what a year it’s been.

In this episode we’re taking a look back at some of our favourite tracks that we’ve played this year, with so many to choose from this was a hard selection to make. Unless you wanted a 4 hour show. Maybe you did? I mean, it wouldn’t be the first time Brad and I have dribbled s*** for a minimum of 4 hours.

A HUGE thank you goes out to everyone that has supported the show over the last 12 months. Sending tracks in, listening to the show, sharing it with friends and families, coming along to our very first live show, and the bands that played at it. All of it. This wouldn’t be possible without all of you.

To the new fans that we’ve picked up along the way, both throughout Australia, and Internationally, we hope you’ve enjoyed the show and hang around for many more to come.

The West Australian music scene is one that we are super proud to be part of. There is so much independent and undiscovered talent floating around. I feel we’re only just starting to make a dent in getting it out there.

While we’re on break, make sure you follow us on Facebook and YouTube where we’ll still be putting out some content during Christmas. We’ll be back with a brand new episode of the podcast in late January 2018.

Until then, stay safe and have a super Christmas and New Year. We’ll see you real soon.

Peace out

– Adam & Brad

We’ve got the final track for our Feature Artist, Spilt Cities, another track from The Plastic Attraction and a new submission from Shannon James who we haven’t had on the show before. So enjoy!

Oh, and a huge thanks to everyone that came down to our very first live show, Uncaged Vol. 1. It was a great night, filled with some superb music from this year’s feature artists. Cheers to Yalla Yalla, Big Girl’s Blouse, The Psychotic Reactions and Spilt Cities for coming along, and to the Basso Hotel for having us. We’re looking forward to Uncaged Vol 2.
