Remfry is joined by Ben Tipple, a freelance journalist who has worked for Kerrang!, Metro, Punktastic, GoldFlakePaint and DIY, to review one of the best festivals the UK has to offer, 2000muthafuckinTrees. Remfry and Ben review 42 bands over the course of 3+ hours including Every Time I Die, Jamie Lenman, The Armed, Holding Absence, Phoxjaw, Mongol Horde, Therapy? Milk Teeth, Raketkanon, Frank Turner and the Sleeping Souls, Haggard Cat, Puppy, Drug Church, Rolo Tomassi and probably for the first and last time You Me At Six.
With just 31 days left of 2018, Steve and Remfry delve into albums released over the past 11 months that they missed first time around. In the first part of this two part round-up, the boys look at albums by The Armed, itoldyouiwouldeatyou, Louise Lemón, Ovlov, Kississippi, Ólafur Arnalds and Twenty One Pilots.
Elsewhere, Remfry sat down with current Vennart/ex-Oceansize main man Mike Vennart to discuss his top five Iron Maiden songs. Remfry stuck around to review the show as well as shows from Pijn, Mogwai, Earthtone9 and Pitchshifter, whilst Steve went to see Therapy?. Plus, this week’s trade-off is The Smashing Pumpkins’ 2011 Oceania for Sugar’s Copper Blue.
