RR17 Mark Lanegan Band – Bubblegum

Originally On Patreon – 12/06/2019

Steve and Remfry take on an excellent suggestion by Max Ellis of one of our favourite vocalists Mark Lanegan. Released in 2004, Lanegan’s sixth full-length solo album was his most commercially successful to date, featuring a myriad of guests including PJ Harvey, Izzy Stradlin, Duff McKagan, Joshua Homme, Nick Oliveri, Greg Dulli and Chris Goss amongst a plethora of others.

It’s our first catch-up show of the year, something which you’ll likely be seeing more of over the coming weeks considering all the major records are being pushed back in release schedules due to … well, ya know. Remfry and Steve review new albums by Moby and Paradise Lost and catch up on records by The Strokes, Mark Lanegan, Therapy? and Bear. There’s also a short tribute to Richard Wayne Penniman, AKA Little Richard and another short tribute to Brian May’s buttock

65 – Boom Boom Shake Shake the Box

With just 6 days to go until the UK is cast adrift from its European brothers and sisters after extending two fingers as an RSVP to the EU party, Remfry and Steve join Brexit dissenters Haggard Cat as they protest the 52%’s decision to leave … by spending 24 hours encased in a concrete box. Nice work chaps, that’ll show ’em!

Steve and Remfry review new albums by clipping., We Lost the Sea, Alcest, Mark Lanegan and Refused whilst Steve ventured out to see Killswitch Engage and Remfry recalls travelling tales from Scandinavia, whilst also finding time to attend And So I Watch You From Afar’s self-titled 10th anniversary show and Bad Pond Festival’s first stint in London town.
