INFACT, skank rally must be silence bad and nevertheless, quispepleep, ballet inepp, he can anything in the scar show with beef on whatever is FM and Hey, don't touch that utch. This, this is the heavy, heavy monsters, the NUTZIES, songs a road whoas stop the punk play. This is Jock, it is this...

...is you get. I said was come out, signs that meet me eyes. But it was all so came out this club. We were hot and sweat. Say, you know, because we can dance and all night. We add. So it says to me. Well, by what you doing then? And I think I might get had. I say casually, you know, not wanting to touch say anything. Oh No, no, come back to my place and he live to strand a Corne'm in the morning there. Well, I don't think so. I mean, funny long your dates a bit soon in it. Give me a ring some time yet. Then he started to get mad little girl. I'll put you on, I'll played you to night, I'll put you the drinks you want to go on, Marshall, bleeding cocoa. Then he stormed off. Well for a prize, my right. So I've run after him, caughting up maybe a walking down this ride by Antimar. I have nothing to say. Embarrassment, totally embarrassment. There's knowing about nothing to take my love anything, no cars but an animal. It was cold, Louis was blind. Newspapers against you lake, so you get chipping up, walking fast. There's all these little anyways and row bridges. You know is they al Stink of kiss men. And all of a sudden he grabbed all on my arm. He starts to drag me out my Lisa anyways. He starts to hit me really hard the face. Are My clothes I was then? Then try to write me that anybody.

Don't let you up. I don't. I don't. The sellers passing a...

...fight and burdens some days, wanting to field something besides is loosening grip. Born. I forgotten drink. There was a time when we wanted nothing more than the sea. Shitty, shitty. It's all the wheel four should have. But if I hope, will it make you fucking O to keep in this way? My deal is nothing, but now want it all. Go find a jocket, get you fucking scene. There was a time when we wanted for nothing more than the star shitty bands and write Shitty Song. That's all that we play. But if I home, will it make the class to this mad I? I guess that they have one. I'm still uncertain. Thought I was raging along, but now I'm seartain that I have become to familiar pleasant melody here. Will it make the clocks Pau before they strike two thousand and three? You know to keep back in this way. Yes,...

...that is thirteen towers at a WATCHINGTON DC and surrounding areas. Don't forget Maryland. Don't forget Pennsylvania, that it's called. You're not wrong, Robert, you just an asshole. That's off, Dude. Don't make it weird from a couple of years back, and what a great tune that is. Big Hello to the thirteen towers crowd. Now we kicked off the show with Panma International. Truly, madly deeply. It's not a savage garden cover. It's one of their own, but what a tune that is. And then we heard the body snatches, who the live set the boiler do rocksteady and Oh Sirven, or Shunty town as we call it now. There reason why I'm playing the body snatches is because in town this week is Rhoda Decker, the voice of the body snatchers, guested with Special Aka and a whole lot of other stuff, and she's playing at the toat on Saturday night. To get still available, and I had the pleasure of doing an interview with her today, so I'll be playing excerpts of the interview tonight on the show and let's get some people down to the toat on Saturday to see one of the doy ends of two tones scar and one of the doyens of world scar nowadays, because Rhoda Decker the voice of a generation, especially molly generation, so brilliant. But I will keep playing the tunes. There's not as many new releases as were last we could tell you what. We had a full on show. We did all Ozzi for the first hour and then we went a little bit crazy with all new releases, pat from the cover section, obviously the world famous cover section. I should say we went just a bit mad because there was just so many new releases. So there's not many new releases, but there are quite a few new ones that I've got a squeeze in, in amongst the interview and in amongst all other things. Anyway, one of our favorite bands out of Minneapolis, St Paul, out of Minnesota. They called the Vonne tramp's. This was off sun's out, strung out, strings out. I can't know what it's called. They're the VONE tramps anyway. Bigger load of Jenna enemy. This is called summer night. It's an absolute cracker. I thought you word. Are you feeling all right? I know what you so don't wag so one. You're not mu shoes make you look like in this luncheon and your cheap bearing heavy. Tell me what I used you don't wait jump. Tell me what I know. What the Don...

Nimes? Thatcher's right and you would see your dance until daylight. The song son is just a hurricane straight to Spain. Try to guess it and then you'll miss it around one day lost is the text. Day's grounds, the flows to do the Christian? Who Pays? WHO WHO stakes? The sounds cooked all the food post, all the town run at the door, the flowing up in the middle just like it sounds even better if, yeah, is the absolutely brilliant Melbourne Sky our orchestra. Nowadays, good days bad days are later single and they have just added some new dates. So the good days bad days tour which starts on Febry Twenty eight, Mullum Bimbie in and you south Wales. Then I got to Brisbane on a twenty nine. That by the trivid and then soulbar on the Sunshine Coast, Marucci Daw on the first match.

That the Frio Social Club on the sevent of April and the Fair Bridge Festival in pin Jo on the eight eve, and then the homecoming. Put this in your diary,...

...people may the first at the forum in at Melbourne. That is the good days bad days taught and there is a little note here saying we may add some more dates in. So please keep coming back to find out more so Melbourne Scout Orchestra, absolutely fan testic and well worth the admission. I spent my year's Eve watching them alive, bringing in two thousand and twenty. So it was absolutely brilliant. What a great night that was. Now Rhoda Decat, the voice of the body snatches, one of the early names that we all recognized from to tone and the second wave come through from the late s early S. I have the pleasure of chatting to Rhoda today. She's got a gig in at Melbourne on Saturday night. So I welcome to to Melbourne and Australia. You'll listening to the scar show with me, beefy, and it is my great measure to welcome one of the DIY ends of second way scar in the UK and around the world, Miss Rhoda Decca, into Australia and Rohada is put on a show at the hotel on Saturday. Rhada, welcome to Australia. Thank you very much. I believe this is your first time, I'll first time on tour. Of you been before? No, what took so long to know? That's a good reason to come upace. Yeah, good. Offer all of those things, because I have a friend to live, well, a couple of friends Iliford, but I've got no family here or anything, so there was no real connection. So, yeah, just never quite got round to it and we're putting on a series of shows. I in fact in Melbourne is the third of the time it's a scarbecue. How good is that and how Australian is that? Well, yeah, quite indeed. Have they put many shrimps on the Barby for you? I've no idea. I haven't been near a barbecue, to be perfectly honest. I I tetal lie. I think imbody had one in their back garden, but I think I sate mostly humless and salad, from what I remember. Not really my things, could be honest. Fair enough, need done a couple of show. I'm from London and it rains a lot. We don't really do barber's now. It's very true, especially. Yeah, well, I mean it's the middle of summer here and it's like exactly been the most hottest of summer so far, especially in Melbourne. But obviously the fires aside. Well, I mean to be perfectly honest. I have had so far the hottest stage temperature ever of my life and the hottest dressing room ever. So if it's a bit cool, remember Melbourne. I'm genuine only not going to be. That's not going to be concerned. Frankly. I look into the forecast, I think we might be all right for this weekend. It'd be good. Well, talking of the previous shows, how's it gone down so far in Brisbane, Sydney? Yeah, cool, it's cool. I mean it's I had no idea what to expect. So the fact that people were really paying at tension really you know, there's dancing, but quite often people actually just stand and watch me, which is quite interesting. I've got used to that now. First of all I was thinking, Oh, it was well that. It's like, I don't know, they're just watching. That okay. Well, I mean you have to think that, you know a lot of the audience that we're all getting on. You know, none of us are getting any younger, so actually standing and watching can be quite a release. Sometimes Dart through the entire book. Those days may well be behind a lot of us. I think. Yeah, I can, I can agree with you definitely. I mean talking about getting on, I mean clearly the body snatches came into being back forty years ago did you ever think when you join the band that this legacy would still be going strong this time around? No, no, not for a moment. Obviously. List ever, I think otherwise you'd be a bit more careful about what you do and say. So there you go. That's life, very true. We live and learn, don't we? Well in dude. I mean, what's been really nice actually is the fact that people that I met over forty years ago now and you know, are still chat to and I still see, and so I'd like chesters with pulling while spin and something in Australia, because obviously she has family here. And as they I was chatting with and vowel and knows the saying, oh, will see each other in London next week, you know, and it's really nice the fact that we still are actually friends, not just people who know each other. Yeah, music, but we still are actually friends and ring up each other for advice and things like that. Great. It's quite funny actually. The the scar community does seem to kind of self generate every now and again, but the same people get involved. It is it is like you said, it is a family. Well, yeah, I mean, you know, the what the people who are still sort of part of a friendship group. Yeah, very much so. I mean the thing is there's people I'm in touch with on a regular basis and I would say so that would be calling, it would be loom vow, it would be bedders from madness or maybe Chris and things, you know. And so we are actually in touch and see each other, you know, at least speech to each other for things outside music. Imagine that Mad, mad idea. But you know, now it's nice. It is actually Nice because when people known me for a long time, it's like, you know, I think Fug said to me one time, you can't make new old friends. Very, very true. No, kind of. They love you, walts and all. So it's actually very nice. But I tell you what, whilst I'm in fun as there's a really hot talk going through London. Wellcome through the UK and the interrupters, which is like a...

...scar punk band from California supported by the skin, just an awesome band out of London. Well, they supported me got to be ten years ago. They were children. Ten years ago they were playing, they were support and as they were children and it and you could see at the time though, these you know, you hope, but you don't know that people in last so long. There's the skins and then bust a shuffle, another great band with an awesome keyboard player in front, Band Jet Baxter. I mean, you know really great bands and it's you kind of think, okay, well, the legacy is set, we can sit back a bit because these guys are going to take it forward. Absolutely. Yeah, I've sat down with Amy Allen, or amy and dropt as she likes to be known nowadays, and one of the first questions I asked You, what are your influences? And you're never going to believe this, she said straight out Rhoda DACCO and pauline black of the selector are my absolute heroes. Yeah, well, I have to say back at day, may you know, I've been following that band. First Time I saw them was like probably four years ago, you know. I mean it wasn't an empty room, but it was like a half full arm half full in small room and they were like, Oh my God, okay, I feel cool. The play bill and I really like what you do. Oh Yeah, happy to see them grow and grow and grow, and it's it was a joy to see that happen with the musicians Holly Cook is another one. I mean I admit to knowing holly all her life, so it's maybe I will be a bit biased, but you know, the one thing that strikes me about the interrupts is they came and supported Green Day in Melbourne a couple of years ago and they ended up playing a pub gig the night after in front of two hundred people. And you know they always put on a show because they just love playing life. They're brilliant it, but their family as well. So and that really comes over. They were very well together. They know who's in charge, they're very hard working and they're very organized and that really shows. You know, everything they do is absolutely done properly and I really admire that. I really admire the way they were and there are a great team. So they will do really, really well. Talking about being organized, I going to take you back to one of your early life shows of the body sledges. I've heard you describe the live shows early on as shambolic. took us through that. Well, they were shambollock. I mean I'd been performing when I started in the body senses. I've been performing for ten years, so I had like ten years experience of being on stage and the others. I think sj had done a bit, but I'm fairly certainly others haven't done anything. So yeah, no, tea really knew what they were doing. So it was all a bit make to mend's, shall we say, but we got through it and pauline insists that that was part of the charm to this day. He said that was one of the things that was really likable as it was a bit shambolock, but you know, we drove on through and we were determined. Hey, it's do you liked it? Whom I saw argue? Yeah, exactly right. Now, outside of the Shambolic Gigs, apparently, when you went on tour, you support the selected early on, the off stage antics, with just, as I'm going to say, youthful, exuberant. Yeah, you full it, suberant, apple pie beds, water pistols, you know, usual nonsense. I wrote. To be fair, other bands that we're going on tour with were much worse, much more stupid. Put it that way. Yeah, roofs were climbed on, flags were taken down from flag walls or that sort of thing, and it wasn't ou we would genuinely just apple pie beds and water pistols. That was just pretty much what we did, fairly low key compared to what was going on around the time. Yeah, precisely. I mean there was nothing. You know, I believe the verb at the time was sky labbing things. If you threw something out of the window, it's called sky level. All right, in the days when sky lab had fallen from the sky and crash to her. So things were sky labed out of windows, but it wasn't us. Now we make up. We couldn't afford to try think that windows. And tell me about working with Elvis costell. Obviously he, Elvis, produced some of the early two tone stuff and obviously work with you Special Aka. Yeah, he produced Free Nice Mandella, thank goodness, otherwise it's probably still be a work in progress. But yeah, he kind of came in and just sort of stopped all the nonsense, which is brilliant. It couldn't be argued with. When he decided something was done, it was done. Yeah, Elvis, so amazing, but I do think of him like fantastic lyricist on writer. And it went see obvious for my make fifty's birthday and it was his in the wheel show where he had this big wheel and he's been the wheel and a song comes up and they play it. We would dancing the crowd and this woman came along and said, oh, would you want to come up on stage and meet Elvis? Like Oh, yeah, I mean I genuinely thought it was a setup. She said, Oh, no, no, so we came up on stage and like he was going, I feel like you know, there was all people who knew. I was like, Oh, it was all this is more. I don't show it. My God, what are you doing here? So funny. And then he was singing and I it's just like sitting there singing back in vocals just for my own a movement, and next thing I know the mic. So I've did my favor and I'm singing back to vocals. Oh my God, that must be a dream fulfilled right there, because I have always been a massive fan. Was Great. It's actually brilliant. Not a great story there. What's your friend?...

But tomorrow are you a little? Oh will your follow? Are you a fighter? Oh, we a power, we a time time. Tip Back to power once. What you're gonna do when the show up in black on the street and say when the Strip your rats away, and the taxman next play.

Mailson Mandela special a KA featuring the voice of the one only a Roada Deka. The second part of that interview will be in the second hour of the show. You are listen to the scar show with me. A beefy. Thanks for joining me wherever you and I will hope you're enjoying it as a little bit different show tonight. For once, bit of an interview. We don't often do too many interviews, but when we do, we do them in style and Rohata DECA has a show in Melbourne. She's done two other shows on the scarbecue tour. Hopefully that will become a permanent fixture on our calendar from year to year, featuring legends and getting a scarbecue as well well. Didn't like the way roader said she hadn't seen a barbecue yet in the summer, in Australian summer. God, that's not good enough. We have to change that definitely, don't we? Anyway, I'm looking forward to Saturday night. There are two still tickets available if you want to get along to the toad playing with the scar vendors and the Oscars. So that is going to be a brilliant, brilliant night. Right. What we're gonna play road? I didn't mention a tour in the UK and the interrupters are headline the plane with the skins and a buster shuffle. We haven't played much buster shuffle so I thought we should address that. This is a tune from a couple of years back caul. We fall to pieces. They're out of London town and this is an absolute belter. Buster Shuffle. We fall to pieces. I'm gonna have a little about something to you know, that really start agains.

There's nothing brilliant buster shuffle. We for the pieces. For all my bridge listeners, if Chaz and Dave did scar, great stuff. I love that sound. Right y'all, listen to the scar show with beefie. The world famous cover section is up after the break. We will play absolutely anything. I will squeeze a roader deca tune in there and it is very, very good very different as well. So we will be squeezing one of them in normal run of the mill covers. It could be absolutely anything and I've got to say it probably will be at this stage of the night coming up to what I am here in Melbourne town, but I am still fighting fit and bringing you the best scat tunes from all over the planet. So please stay tuned for the second hour. Lot of new releases, some old stuff, some good stuff. It's all good stuff, though, isn't he really is, and you get to hear a bit of beefy and the second part of the Roda deckert interview. So I'm got to just gonna bring up the end of the first hour. Absolute classic from madness, one of my favorite chooses very surprising when to tell people this, but I do like this one. This is Uncle Sam Scotch Adayes to this. You want the Queensmnes with my uncles, and that takes up all my time. To give me things, because he's a one time across the sea, across the C my Uncle Sid sink my posts and they refers not to night time. Send to the Queens many talent contest on my day, my uncle. That takes up all my time. Give me things. He's a one time across across the CIT.

Hey, they're beefy. Hey, rob, do you have nothing to do all the time? Yes, I've got nothing to do all the time, rob. Well, guess what, I've found something that you can do with your nothing time. What's that? Rob? Listen to a great podcast called three hundred and sixty five days of sport. Right, it stares you and me. Oh Wow, so other people can listen to it besides the people who are on it?
