156 – Lingua Ignota, Foxing, Fawn Limbs and Creeper

Remfry’s feeling very hoarse after making an extravagant re-entrance back into non-socially distanced gig-going, as he hurtled himself down to his old stomping ground of Bristol to see 80Trees, the mini-indoor festival hastily put together by the 2000Trees and ArcTanGent team. He huskily reports back on the weekend’s events and shenanigans whilst trying to sound as little like Kathleen Turner as possible. For those of a more mainstream persuasion, we also celebrate Dave’s #1 UK album success and break down a veritable feast of fascinating facts of its success.

Releases reviewed this week include Sinner Get Ready by Lingua Ignota, Draw Down the Moon by Foxing, Darwin Falls by Fawn Limbs and American Noir by Creeper

62 – Super Chelly Chelly Songs

There are a plethora of live shows to cover this week on Riot Act, as Steve went to the rather morbid Static-X, Soil and Wednesday 13 in London whilst Remfry went to see Emma Ruth Rundle, Jo Quail in Bristol and Lingua Ignota in London. He also hot-footed it off to Cologne to report back from the 15th edition of Euroblast Festival where he saw a strong contender for worst gig in 20 years of seeing shows. 

Albums reviewed include The Menzingers, The Number Twelve Looks Like You, Renounced and Body Hound and trade off comes courtesy of Death By Stereo and Sunny Day Real Estate.
