101 – Uncle Krapper

Remfry and Steve discuss new releases by Bush, Jesu, Sharptooth and Inter Arma and after weeks of drought there’s finally some news! Unfortunately, it’s all pretty atrocious as the boys discuss Kanye West’s bid for the presidency, Tom Meighan’s dismissal from Kasabian and the passing of Ennio Morricone. Speaking of atrocious, Uncle Kracker’s 2000 debut album ‘Double Wide’ is the subject of Broken Records

100 – The Girl … with Kaleidoscope Eyes

It’s an episode 100 bonanza, as Steve and Remfry review new releases by HAIM, A.A. Williams, Phoxjaw, Hum and Glorious and they beam up William Shatner to our Broken Records pit of despair (if you can beam one up to a pit) covering his 1968 album The Transformed Man.

99 – Justice for Dizzie!

Remfry’s got himself in a bit of a tizz over Dizzie Rascal, although he may have got the wrong end of the stick. Alongside Steve, he gets back on track reviewing new releases by Bob Dylan, Ohmms, Bo Ningen, Vile Creature and clipping. Plus, take a look at the 2011 collaborative album between Lou Reed and Metallica Lulu and discuss whether it really deserves the mauling that it received

98 – The Ringo Starr of the Sunset Strip

On this week’s show, Remfry and Steve review new releases by Lamb of God, Phoebe Bridgers, Protest the Hero and Coriky and they also delved further into the pit of despair than ever on Broken Records, heading back to 1999 and pooping the party, with it’s soundtrack of hedonistic, misogynistic, will-waving in the form of Tommy Lee’s debut ‘solo’ album Methods of Mayhem

97 – ‘I Like Shagging, Get Over It!’

It’s Steve’s second catch-up show of the year and he’s curated a veritable feast of aural treats that we’ve missed in the first 5 months of 2020. New albums reviewed this week include Ghostpoet, END, Backxwash, Porridge Radio and Barren Womb. And in Broken Records, Steve and Remfry discuss whether Liz Phair’s self-titled 2003 record deserves to be in our hallowed hall of shit

96 – Outed Scumbag Stephen Hill (w/ Matt Stocks)

**With #blacklivesmatter being a movement that has proved to be depressingly prescient in the last few days, Remfry and Steve decided that it was vital to cover the new album by Run the Jewels, despite receiving the promo after this week’s show was already recorded. The original episode description follows**

Steve and Remfry are joined this week by friend of the show Mr. Matt Stocks this week, who’s on to promote his new book … But that’s not the ONLY reason he’s on the show as he’s also helping the Riot Actors to review new albums by 156/Silence, Katie Malco and The Weapon, plus he delves into the hatful of shit alongside Steve and Remfry, as they look back at Bush’s 7th full-length album Black and White Rainbows

95 – Minty Milk You Mad Geets

Technical difficulties have hindered our (Remfry’s) ability to review new albums this week, but we didn’t want to let you down so we cover three new releases this week (as opposed to the usual 4) by The 1975, Mrs Piss and Antethic. In Broken Records, we delved deeper than we’ve ever … devled, as we go in on Blood, Sweat and Towers, the 2006 debut album from Towers of London

94 – The Miseducation of Stephen Hill

‘Wild-one-eyed Stephen Hill’ and ‘Two-perfect-working-eyes Remfry Dedman’ present their second catch-up show of 2020, and this week it’s the perfectly sighted Remfry Dedman’s turn to choose. They review new(ish) records from the likes of Mogwai, Sparta, The Ditch and the Delta, BAMBARA and Jarboe. Broken Records covers the MTV Unplugged session from Ms. Lauryn Hill, the 2002 follow-up to her critically acclaimed The Miseducation of Lauryn Hill

93 – Captain Rock & The Rock Boys

It’s our first catch-up show of the year, something which you’ll likely be seeing more of over the coming weeks considering all the major records are being pushed back in release schedules due to … well, ya know. Remfry and Steve review new albums by Moby and Paradise Lost and catch up on records by The Strokes, Mark Lanegan, Therapy? and Bear. There’s also a short tribute to Richard Wayne Penniman, AKA Little Richard and another short tribute to Brian May’s buttock

92 – Eeuuuwwee XIV

In an uncharacteristic move, Steve and Remfry are singing Paramore songs, probably due to the release of the debut solo album by Hayley Williams, which is reviewed alongside new albums by The Hirsch Effekt, Winterfylleth and Fake Names. Meanwhile Broken Records is laced with a thin film of smut as the boys dissect Slick Dogs and Ponies, the third and thankfully final album by perma-erect San Diego rock band Louis XIV
