This week, Steve and Remfry welcome our first ever regular contributor to Riot Act, the one and only Mr. Jamie Lenman. In his first of many contributions to Riot Act, Jamie gives an in-depth account of his love for The Presidents of the United States of America’s underrated third album ‘Freaked Out and Small’.
Elsewhere, Steve and Remfry review new albums from the likes of Black Peaks, The Black Queen, Anaal Nathrakh and Restorations. They also discuss Metallica’s return to Europe’s stadiums next summer and what this means for Download festival, as well as Wolf Alice’s win at the Mercury Music Prize. And this week’s album trade-off is a British bonanza with Remfry assessing London-based alternative electronica three piece Public Service Broadcasting’s ‘Inform-Educate-Entertain’ and Steve sinking his teeth into ‘Got Your Brass’ by Barnsley punk n’ roll bruisers Cavorts.
