147 – Rise Against, Red Fang, Boss Keloid and Part Chimp

Steve and Remfry ‘go down and deep’ on the Download Pilot line-up and end up completely and utterly contradicting our stance from last week by having a *whispers* bit of a moan. Still … festivals are back … sort of … yay! Something that no-one in their right mind should have a problem with is us moaning about the fact that Vince Neil STILL has a career in music even though he is clearly a washed up, overweight sexist sack of shit who can’t sing, as he proved earlier this week at a festival in Iowa. What an utter goober!


Albums reviewed this week are Nowhere Generation by Rise Against, Arrows by Red Fang, Family the Smiling Thrush by Boss Keloid and Drool by Part Chimp

40 – Desmond Child’s Ho99o9

This week there’s a plethora of great albums to discuss from the likes of Frank Carter and the Rattlesnakes, The Wildhearts, The Physics House Band and a collaboration between Marissa Nadler and Stephen Brodsky. Steve also went to see Ho99o9 live, whilst Remfry attended shows by Restorations and Devin Townsend.

This week’s trade off come courtesy of Acid Bath’s ‘When the Kite String Pops’ and Beach Slang’s ‘The Things We Do to Find People Who Feel Like Us’ and there’s a detour into mainstream pop territory as the boys discuss rising star Billie Eilish.

29 – Shagging A Clanger

We’ve come over all Heavy Metal on this week’s show, with Steve and Remfry reviewing new albums from Rotting Christ (Black Metal), Crystal Lake (Metalcore) and Dangerface (Not Metal). The boys also recount their experience watching ‘the most metal show of all time’ in the form of At The Gates, Wolves in the Throne Room and the mighty mighty Behemoth tones, whilst elsewhere Remfry casts his beady eye over live shows from Cancer Bats and Frank Carter & The Rattlesnakes.

Trade-off this week comes courtesy of Beneath The Massacre with their debut full-length Mechanics of Dysfunction and Albany NY punks Drug Church with their third full-length album Cheer. But that’s not all … this week we introduced our first range of Riot Act merchandise (AKA Riot Gear) … T-shirts, Hoodies, Longsleeves Snapback caps, Beanies, Badges, Mugs … even a bloody drawstring bag for Pete’s sake!
