187 – Charli XCX, Weezer, Animals as Leaders and Helpless

Cover your mouths and don’t get too close to Remfry! Riot Act is here again, but poor Remmers is still suffering from the deadly COVID. Steve is fine, although he is pretty certain he’s going to get it in the next few days, so something to look forward to next week.

We’ve managed to cast our ears over the latest releases from Charli XCX, Weezer, Animals As Leaders and Helpless, plus we talk about a whole bunch of recent events involving Ghost and Maneskin impressively taking even broader steps into the mainstream, Standon Calling’s gender balanced festival bill and Aaron Lewis from Staind TELLING IT HOW IT IS! FINALLY! What a divvy.

54 – Queen With Screaming

It’s a huge week for music this week as Steve and Remfry discuss the sixth album from metal behemoths Slipknot. There is also chat on new releases from The Hold Steady, Cultdreams and Pijn & Conjurer. As if that wasn’t enough there is also a mammoth trade off, where the lads discuss Maybeshewill’s excellent debut album Not For Want Of Trying and then try and unpack the relative merits of one of the most influential records of the Millennium; 808’s And Heartbreak by hip-hop visionary/big headed loony (delete as applicable) Kayne West.

There is also chat about the official cancellation of Woodstock 50, and the Jamey Jasta vs Chvrches Twitter spat. Which leads to Steve #Cancelling the NME… AGAIN!
