109 – Oceans of Slumber, Bill Callahan, ’68 and Pig Destroyer

In a surprise twist of events, Steve and Remfry actually have something positive to say about Reading and Leeds Festival, who have (controversially) decided to expand their line-up of headliners from 3 to 6. And speaking of live music, Remfry went to a gig … yes, a live gathering of people, joined together to gawp at someone playing music on stage … live … woo-hoo! And who better to see than friend of the show and ole Riot Act semi-regular Jamie Lenman for his first gig in 165 days eh?

Reviews this week come courtesy of Oceans of Slumber, Bloxx, Bill Callahan, Pig Destroyer and a surprise EP release from ’68.And finally, after a few weeks of utterly despicable grotty garbage on Broken Records, we take a look behind Hollywood actor Corey Feldman’s fifth (yep … fifth!) record Angelic 2 the Core: Angelic Funkadelic / Angelic Rockadelic, a double album that really needs to be heard to be believed! Oh and Steve becomes furious at Remfry’s appraisal of The Lost Boys, a film he’s finally got around to seeing just a short 33 years after it’s initial release.

01 – Romantic Caravans and the 12 Unsung Heroes of 2018

After kicking Riot Act off in style with a podcast filled with some of the biggest names in music in episode 00, this week we cast our net into the furthest reaches of the musical landscape to bring you a dozen of 2018’s most exciting yet unheralded acts. There’s everything from gritty, earnest Americana to mind bogglingly savage tech-metal, and everything in between.

We also chat about our escapades over the last month. We both went to see Pearl Jam, Remfry went to see Palm Reader and Stephen went to a caravan for a few days with his wife. There’s probably a bit too much chat on that if we’re honest…
