Erk FM: Australia 400 – Looking Back












Welcome to Erk FM: Australia episode 400! On this episode, Erk takes a look back at arguably the best event that he has been involved in during his time hosting Erk FM – Erkstock! Originally recorded as Erk FM: Metal Monday episode 48, the Erkstock special featured bands that Erk wanted to play for him as a part of a birthday celebration in August 2012.


If Erkstock isn’t enough for episode 400, Erk also talks about the Smokin Mirrors EP launch (finally, you guys!) including the music video for Set To Ignite. You’ll even spot Erk! 


For Erkstock, Smokin Mirrors & Vanity Riots opened the event and both bands joined forces for an interview. Smokin Mirrors could almost live at the Valve while for Vanity Riots, it was their penultimate gig with their then current lineup.


Next up was Hard As Nails, this interview was Erk’s first with the entire band. On this occasion, Hard As Nails debuted 2 new songs including one for their hard working roadie Jenn, who also assisted Erk greatly with the running of this event with her new venture Roadie Entertainment.


Cranking things up to 11 for the metal end of the evening were Gutter Tactic who really had a massive mosh pit happening. Foundry Road played their best live version of Safety Dance yet as well as the fastest version of Rise they have ever played.


Erkstock is the perfect way to showcase the work that Erk has been doing with Erk FM & will continue to do. Thank you to all of the bands, all of the PR agencies, venues, promoters & listeners who have supported Erk FM since January 2009.



Erk enjoys creating new media, watching ice hockey and strange Chinese dating shows. Podcaster (2007 - 2014) and a new video gamer.
