106 – Sea-Shanty Sgt. Peppers

Remfry and Steve are hot (in a temperaturial sense … we’re not THAT vain). Despite the heat, we don’t complan (much) and crack on with reviewing new releases by Biffy Clyro, Fontaines D.C., TE Morris and Jo Quail and Poisonous Birds. Plus we exalt Razorlight to their rightful position in Broken Records.

They also abandon all hope at the absolute twattery of attendees at Sturgis Biker Rally … no, not because they paid money to watch appalling ‘All-Star’ Shrek-wreckers Smash Mouth, but because seemingly the overwhelming majority of the crowd appeared mask-less amid an ongoing, global coronavirus pandemic …. blithering idiots!

There’s also sad news in the form of producer extraordinaire Martin Birch’s passing as well as LG Petrov’s diagnosis with un-curable cancer. If you’d like to help donate to the cause, visit Petrov’s Go Fund Me page at https://www.gofundme.com/f/support-petrov

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.
