S23 – Covers Special #1

Remfry and Steve return to an idea as old as Riot Act itself as they pick 8 covers each to discuss over almost 3 hours. The songs that bands decide to cover and the way that they cover them can tell you a lot about the band itself, something that the boys dissect at length.

Together, they look at covers of songs by the likes of The Beatles, Refused, The Prodigy, Nina Simone, Sunny Day Real Estate, Pink Floyd, Kate Bush, Nirvana, Iron Maiden, Weezer, Deftones, The Police, Killing Joke and Frank Sinatra

Riot Act

24 – Fridge Reach-Around

This week, Steve and Remfry discuss the sobering topic of HMV going into administration for a second time and what that could potentially mean for the music industry at large (spoiler, it’s not good). In addition, they talk about some surprising and welcome additions to NME’s ‘Essential new artists for 2019’ as well as the sheer ridiculous situation that has forced Kate Bush to come out and proclaim she’s not a Tory supporter (as if anyone sensible cared). 

There are also album reviews of Swervedriver’s ‘Future Ruins’ and Soilwork’s ‘Verkligheten’ and Trade-Off this week comes courtesy of Agnes Obel’s ‘Citizen of Glass’ and Kruger’s ‘Adam and Steve’.
