127 – Taylor Swift, Alpha Male Tea Party, Gone is Gone and Emma Ruth Rundle & Thou

New releases are still fairly thin on the ground, so Steve and Remfry continue to take a look back at some of the records they missed at the tail end of 2020, including Taylor Swift’s evermore, Alpha Male Tea Party’s Infinity Stare and Gone is Gone’s (deep breath) If Everything Happens For A Reason…Then Nothing Really Matters At All
There is some brand new music however in the form of The Helm of Sorrow, a new collaborative EP from Emma Ruth Rundle and Thou that’s come hot on the heels of last year’s debut collaborative full-length May Our Chambers Be Full

S32 – Riot Act Christmas Single Bonanza (w/ Tom Peters from Alpha Male Tea Party)


We’ve been beavering away behind the scenes for the last couple of months to create a Christmas Carol Medley performed by a veritable feast of guests to raise money for a fund setup by Music Venues Trust for venues that didn’t receive funding from the UK Government bailout.

Remfry sat down with our arrange meister general Mr. Tom Peters from Alpha Male Tea Party, who has painstakingly arranged four carols together for our band of uber-musicians to perform. They talk about bringing all the disparate elements of the medley together, forming an uber group consisting of members of Alpha Male Tea Party, Delta Sleep, The Physics House Band and InTechnicolor to bring the instrumentals to our monstrous medley of festive fun. 

Joining them on vocals are members of SikTh, Her Name is Calla, False Advertising, Hebe Jones, El Moono, Congé and Better Than Mending. They also discuss the choice of carols, Good King Wenceslas, Ding Dong Merrily On High, O, Little Town of Bethlehem and Silent Night.

04 – Calculating Infinity: The ArcTanGent 2018 Review

This week, Stephen and Remfry are putting two + two together as they get all mathematically minded whilst reviewing ArcTanGent 2018… well, Remfry does. Unfortunately, Steve didn’t put his workings in the margins and consequently turned up late and left early. What a plonker!

Elsewhere Remfry goes ballistic after seeing The Fever 333’s debut demonstration in London mere hours before the show was recorded and Steve goes stark raving bonkers over the new album from Mantar, as well as giving us a history lesson in art so offensive, even the Nazis disapproved of it!

The boys also review new albums from Jesus Piece and Leeched and verdicts are given on the latest Album Swap; Entombed’s Same Difference and Oceansize’s Effloresce. Plus comment is given on the new single from Sheffield metalcore abandoners Bring Me The Horizon.
