#322 Chris Catalyst (Sisters of Mercy/Ugly Kid Joe/Solo)

The Yorkshire tri-factor that began with Joe Elliott three weeks ago is now complete, as renowned gun for fire, underground guitar god, singer-songwriter, solo artist and all-round nice bloke Chris Catalyst joins me for Episode 322 of Life In The Stocks. Chris has played with everyone from the Sisters of Mercy and Ghost to The Wildhearts and Ugly Kid Joe. He also has his own band Eureka Machines. And he's a prolific solo artist. And we try and cover as much ground as possible in the allotted time, from being a solo full-time creative person and the joys and perils that come with the territory to the inspirational power of music and the importance of a positive perspective on life and the world around you. It's an uplifting discussion and I hope you take something positive away from it. You can also catch Chris on tour this month. Dates and ticket link below.

#294 Spike Slawson (Me First and the Gimme Gimmes/Uke-Hunt)

It blows my mind that I can be 294 podcasts in and still be recording some of my favourite Life In The Stocks episodes to date. It gets me so excited about the future and what's still to come. But let's not get ahead of ourselves...joining me for Episode 294 of LITS is Spike Slawson from Me First and the Gimme Gimmes, the best covers band in the world, and his solo project Uke-Hunt - you see what he did there?!? This is a great chat. We discuss frontmanship (is that a word?) and show business, getting sober and the effect that has on your craft, censorship, creativity and the joy of discovering music, Pittsburgh and the socio-economic and political history of that part of the US, the history of American punk, the ever-evolving Gimmes line-up and so much more.
