Kitchen DIY Interview #2 – Dead Air Radio’s Dave Drayton

Posted by Matt

So Dave, when did you first get into Radio?

I started doing radio up at Triple H in Hornsby with Mel, and she got me in to play some songs on acoustic, then she got her own show and asked me to come help out on it.

Hornsby fell apart, I had not done radio for about 6 months, Scott Fitzsimons was doing Dead Air which is a punk show at FBI, I was working with him at the time at Street Press Australia, he was going away for 6 weeks and needed someone to fill in, so I actually had to learn how to work a sound desk. So when he got back he was looking at hanging up the reins and asked if I could take over, and clearly I was so I came on board permanently 2 or 3 months after that.

So tell me about Dead Air Radio?

Its on Monday nights on FBI Radio from 11pm till 1am and according to the website we play punk, metal and hardcore, but pretty much I just play bands that could maybe be loosely associated with those genres that I get stoked on a froth over.

FBI do some cool shit for the Sydney music scene but a lot of the programming is a bit samey during the daytime and you miss out on that kind of music.

Whats your favourite part about the show?

"Dave plays a song by the band who's shirt he is wearing", I do like that segment. But I do like being able to play shit that people wouldn't usually play on radio but that is by no means undeserving of it, we used to have a segment on Triple H called "Radio Unfriendly" and I used to play any song that was 10 or 20 minutes long and that was awesome.

Whats your favourite up and coming grind band? Whats gotten you heaps stoked on lately?

Have you listened to Bruiser? How good is that album!! Its called 12 9 12, they are a 3 piece Melbourne with grind elements but with also sludgier doomier stuff and also some stupid really groovy metal solos. Its crisp as fuck but the vocals are rough as guts. thedowngoing, their new album is also terrifying. Idylls fucking rule, is that grind?

What about live, who have you seen live that has impressed you?

FGWMWS is hands down the best grind band i have seen in 4 years or something, their drummer is incredible he plays trad grip and still shreds and does cheeky little bell hits and their so crisp, hilarious front-man and guitarist shreds. They don't take themselves too seriously but their music is fucking seriously tight complicated and impressive shit.

What have you got coming up in the show?

Totally Unicorn to have a chat about their 7 inch "7inches". Berkshire Hunting Club are gunna come in and talk about their new EP, those guys have really hit their stride. And then I dunno, filtering through my overstuffed wardrobe to find funny band shirts so I ca play some shit on the show.

Listen to Dave on Mondays on Dead Air
