#57. This time we are joined by all round ‘muso’ and lovely Aussie larrikin Luke Brann who amongst other musical outfits bashes the shit out of a set of drums for Sydney based 4 piece ‘The Kava Kings’. Luke selects the 4th studio album by American rock band Kings of Leon entitled ‘Only by the Night’. The Golden Ducks tell their infamous story of falling into a water fountain, breaking chairs and as such being asked to leave the pub whilst Luke gets green with envy that he wasn’t old enough to be part of the fun and games. The Ducks show their age at long last. Get on it
