About the Band

Local Resident Failure is a 4 piece Punk rock band from Newcastle, Australia. Formed in early 2007 LRF are heavily influenced by 80’s and 90’s punk rock bands like NOFX, Bad Religion, Lagwagon, Descendents, & fellow Australians Frenzal Rhomb. The band consists of Michael Dallinger (Vocals, Guitar), Kye O'Sullivan (Guitar, Vocals), Chop Dog (Bass), & Kye Smith (Drums).

After playing reugalry in their hometown, LRF put out their first demo called "The Mike Whitney Demo". Shortly after, they hit a proper studio and released the "Punk Rockers Anoymous" EP: 7 songs in 11 mintues about super heroes, vegetarians, and the catchy "There is no I in SC" written about the lead singer not being let in the Sydney band, Sydney City Trash.

Now two years since their start, and with a new 7" under their belt, LRF are touring hard across the country.

Interview with Chop Dog

1) When are you gonna tour outside of Australia?
- when I win the lotto!

2) Plans for a full length album anytime?
- hopefully late 2009, we just released a new 7" called "Still Sober after all these beers"

3) Any embarrassing stories about the band's aboriginal?
- About dal? not that I can think of. although our drummer lost his virginity when he was 9, that's kinda funny.

4) What size of audience do you guys usually get and do you find your fan-base growing quickly?
- Playing in a punk rock band is tough around here, its all about the hardcore kids, but we have a pretty loyal fan base and on a good night can pull 100-150 people with the right lineup. Every show we play we meet new people and more and more great bands so yeah I do believe its growing.
