68 – Bubblewrap Back

It’s part 2 of our end-of-year catch up and this week, Steve’s curated a compelling and varied list of musical artistes including Health, Show Me The Body, Snow Ghosts, Port Noir, Ashbringer, Life of Agony, Throes, JPEGMafia, Kim Gordon and Nile.

Also this week, Remfry went to see Fever 333, Steve went to see Leprous, there’s a discussion about The Ghost Inside’s big comeback show at Brixton Academy and for the first time, possibly ever, the guys say something bad about Tool.

25 – Crash Bang Pow Wallop Kabuki Bukakke

It’s another week of great music and jovial chat from the Riot Act chaps, who this week discuss one of the most eagerly anticipated debuts of 2019 by political agit-hardcore punks Fever333 and the brand new album from Japanese post-rock stalwarts Mono.

There’s also chat about Idles’ unexpected BRIT Award nomination, and this weeks Trade Off leads to some positive purrings on Fink and his album Perfect Darkness, alongside some frankly utterly bewildering chat on the legend that is Prince and his bonkers 1989 Batman soundtrack, which gets way too sexy/disrespectful to a great man. Depending on your outlook of course.

05 – Chaos Can’t be Perfected (feat. Frontierer)

It’s a big week for reviews this week as Steve and Remfry discuss the latest releases from some sizeable bands: Alice In Chains, Interpol, Death Cab For Cutie, Mark Lanegan and Duke Garwood, and Idles. There’s also discussion on this year’s Heavy Music Awards, which band have made the most successful change in their sound, and on who is the REAL star of this show!

Most importantly Remfry sits down to chat with Frontierer about their incredible new album Unloved and how they are doing their best to shape heavy music into exciting new forms.

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.
