Listen: Ain't That Swell (not quite) live from Bondi Bowling Club

Stu Nettle
Swellnet Dispatch

Between putting on live shows, real live shows, around the nation, the lads are finally getting their shit together and releasing the 'live' poddies of the formerly real live shows.

This one's from Bondi Bowlo featuring...look, anything I type will be inferior so here's Smivvy on the keys:

"We take a trip down memory lane. First through the mean streets of South Sydney circa early-2000s with the great carpet-laying, cage-fighting, tube-pigging, Coogee Wombats reserve-grader, Richie Vaculik."

"Then it's off to Scum Valley with the power-hacking, style-master and former Quiksilver star, Richard Cram."

"Special commentary and insight is provided by the one and only CREEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEDO."

It's two hours long. I haven't listened to it yet. Lemme know how you go.

I used to like Jed Smith till I read a bit by him which lambasted the geriatric Aussie monoculture of a certain NSW town as inhabited by dumb cunts cause they hadn’t given over their much-loved town to the transient backpacker pests who provide the same “ unique diversity “ to be found reproduced identically at Kho Samui , Borrocai , Canggu , Kuta Lombok, Ubud , Byron Bay etc etc

He also wrote some garbage about how he’s got more respect for the German backpackers plaguing Indo than the salty old Aussies who also plague the joint. Something about the irrepressible adventure spirit of the Euro learner kook despite the fact that there has literally never been a more spoon fed , self -obsessed , culturally ignorant surfer to have walked the Earth.

Should I relinquish this grudge and give him another try or what ?

Took me a while to get around to this podcast but have grown to like it.

However anyone listen to the sunny coast one? What a load of dribble.

Yeah, that was the only one in all the ones I've listened to where I turned it off, probably not even midway thru. To think all that vicious bullshit that Kong was spewing wasnt backed up by any of the crew that he said would, was cringeworthy to say the least...couldnt cop him one bit

The live podcasts are pretty much a bunch of drunks pissing in each others ears about how good they were back in the day with Jed and Vaughan trying maintain some sort of control, however the studio recorded poddies are great and with Bainy on some of the episodes they are hilarious and insightful at the same time.....Lipped is another one worth a listen in my opinion

Hit n Miss I reckon and can be over the top at times. Don’t know about Jed Smith but Vaughn and his bro Ron are classic guys... I once shoved 30 green grapes into Ron Dogs mouth at once.... it shut him up for 30 seconds

Can’t stand Creed. The whole act like you don’t care. It’s contrived, unauthentic BS. He cares more about his image and ego than half the guys on tour.
