It’s a very varied show this week as Remfry and Steve review new releases by Creeper, Imperial Triumphant, Taylor Swift, Alain Johannes, Fall of Messiah and a split between NoFX and Frank Turner. There’s sad news as we pay tribute to Fleetwood Mac co-founder Peter Green and hip-shaking Mick Jagger swaggers his way into Broken Records with his sophomore solo album Primitive Cool
In the second episode of our Classic Album series we let Steve make his first entry. His initial pick is Marilyn Manson’s commercial breakthrough from 1996, Antichrist Superstar. He and Remfry are joined by Metal Hammer magazine editor and Manson superfan Merlin Alderslade to talk through the album itself, from its build up and inception, the fraught recording process and the records, oddly prophetic, concept and narrative. Before digging into the critical and commercial reception the album received, and the resulting controversy that it stirred up, from middle America to court rooms to Ozzfest stages, which contributed to making Marilyn Manson into one of the biggest stars of the 90s.
