149 – Backxwash, Bossk, Fear Factory, Sleater-Kinney and Machine Head

Remfry and Steve honour Skunk Anansie’s Skin as she is set to receive an OBE from The Queen (the monarch, not the band), discuss Roger Waters being aggy over social media and James Labrie guesting on his son’s band’s cover of Kickstart my Heart by Mötley Crüe, a song that feels as if it were recorded single-handedly with the intention of enraging us both. 


We review new releases including I Lie Here Buried With My Rings and My Dresses by Backxwash, Migration by Bossk, Aggressive Continuum by Fear Factory, Path of Wellness by Sleater-Kinney and Arrows In Words From the Sky by Machine Head.

03 – Live Evil: The Bloodstock 2018 Review

It’s a bumper live review episode of Riot Act this week as Stephen and Remfry have spent the last week seeing… well, pretty much band ever! From Pianos Become The Teeth to Danzig, from Larry And His Flask to Iron Maiden, and all culminating in a full review of Bloodstock Open Air, the UK’s premier metal festival.

We also review the new album from Foxing, take a retrospective look at Ian Brown’s Music Of The Spheres and Sigur Rós’ Kveikur, and we try to recite the alphabet backwards… although no one really knows why.
