Erk FM 184 – Erk’s Mega Trip Review

by Erk

Welcome to episode 184 of Erk FM, Erk’s music podcast featuring a wide range of podsafe & independent music from across the world.


This week’s episode features music that Erk found during his epic trip that is just about finished. On this episode, Erk is playing the music from the CD player of his hire car in a way that will hopefully make it seem you are in the car with Erk.



During this episode, there is a big announcement about the future of Erk FM & other shows across Channel Erk. Don’t worry, it’s good news, though!


Music supplied by the artists directly & used with permission. Due to the nature of the show, it is an extended episode covering the last 3 months of Erk being out of the Channel Erk studio. Song names are not used because near the end of the episode, Erk found that the CD player was in random mode so the songs played might not have been the ones that Erk planned or announced.


Artist list:

  • HIBI*Chazz K – Japanese street jazz players Erk found playing near Tokyo Zoo
  • Jordan Reyne – Kiwi now calling London home & wowing audiences with her industrial music
  • John Paul & Stuart Todd – Thanks to Dan from Rathole Radio for giving me the heads up on an interesting acoustic night in Liverpool. John Paul & Stuart were the best acts on the evening.
  • ME – ME have become a favourite of Erk’s recently. Erk went to ME’s launch of Like A Fox as their debut UK single in London. Early in the episode you’ll hear the CD version & at the end of the episode, you’ll hear the live version as recorded by Erk in London.
  • Never The Bride – Right at the end of Erk’s stay in England, Erk was lucky enough to be able to attend a live performance after changing his plans. The night was a jazzy affair & lead singer Nikki even invited Erk on stage!
  • Die Kur – First metal act that I saw in London on the same night as Jordan Reyne.  Vocalist Ays came out on stage wearing a gas mask to open the evening & eagerly supported the other bands.
  • Ventenner – These guys also supported Jordan Reyne & at this gig they used drum samples instead of a real life drummer. Had a fun tube ride part of the way back to my hotel with the guys.
  • Maxdmyz – Another support band for Jordan Reyne, these guys went out quite hard & stayed at 11 for their whole set.
