S23 – Covers Special #1

Remfry and Steve return to an idea as old as Riot Act itself as they pick 8 covers each to discuss over almost 3 hours. The songs that bands decide to cover and the way that they cover them can tell you a lot about the band itself, something that the boys dissect at length.


Together, they look at covers of songs by the likes of The Beatles, Refused, The Prodigy, Nina Simone, Sunny Day Real Estate, Pink Floyd, Kate Bush, Nirvana, Iron Maiden, Weezer, Deftones, The Police, Killing Joke and Frank Sinatra

19 – Buffet of Brutality

It’s another week of looking back on some of 2018’s missed records on this week’s Riot Act. Steve and Remfry chat about this year’s releases from Car Seat Headrest, Thou, Basement, Wire Love, Ocean Wisdom, Nothing and also discuss whether The 1975’s new album really is a ‘Millennial OK Computer’. The trade off see’s the boys talking about the relative merits of Technique by New Order and Caspian’s Dust And Disquiet. And we truly live up to our status as an ‘alternative’ podcast, but exploring some truly alternative lifestyle practices… after all, what’s more alternative than beastiality?

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.
