169 – Limp Bizkit, The War on Drugs, JPEGMAFIA and Rivers of Nihil

Welcome to another week of alternative music news, reviews and opinions courtesy of us here at Riot Act. Steve and Remfry start, pretty much immediately, by excitedly reviewing the recent Biffy Clyro gig at the Forum in London, before delving into this weeks releases, discussing the news that U2 have released a rubbish song (much to Steve’s disappointment but not shock), Porcupine Tree have reformed and that some Slipknot fans have set fire to a mosh pit… or something. We also pay tribute to legendary music writer Malcolm Dome, who we were very sad to learn passed away this week. RIP to the man who coined the term thrash metal and who has given both of us literally tens of thousands of words on some of our favourite music ever.

We then catch up on some recent releases that we feel are worth talking about from a truly mixed bag; Limp Bizkit, The War On Drugs, Don Broco, Jónsi, JPEGMAFIA, Marissa Nadler, Teethgrynder, Rivers of Nihil, Tom VR and Can’t Swim all have their latest albums discussed and dissected. There’s a lot of chat about the saxophone too. Nice.

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.
