156 – Lingua Ignota, Foxing, Fawn Limbs and Creeper

Remfry’s feeling very hoarse after making an extravagant re-entrance back into non-socially distanced gig-going, as he hurtled himself down to his old stomping ground of Bristol to see 80Trees, the mini-indoor festival hastily put together by the 2000Trees and ArcTanGent team. He huskily reports back on the weekend’s events and shenanigans whilst trying to sound as little like Kathleen Turner as possible. For those of a more mainstream persuasion, we also celebrate Dave’s #1 UK album success and break down a veritable feast of fascinating facts of its success.

Releases reviewed this week include Sinner Get Ready by Lingua Ignota, Draw Down the Moon by Foxing, Darwin Falls by Fawn Limbs and American Noir by Creeper

S24 – Creeper (w/ Will Gould)

It’s time for another special Riot Act interview podcast. This week Steve sat down with Will Gould from Southampton’s premier horror punks Creeper to talk about their long awaited second album Sex, Death and The Infinite Void. Will reveals the context that the album was created in, from Creeper “splitting up” onstage at Koko in London at the end of 2018, the pressure they felt to follow up Eternity in Your Arms, the curse that surrounded everyone who worked on the album, the influence of America on its creation and how the band ended up embracing the long forgotten sound of Pulp, Suede and Brit-pop to make the finest album of their career
