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
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.
It’s a big week for reviews this week as Steve and Remfry discuss the latest releases from some sizeable bands: Alice In Chains, Interpol, Death Cab For Cutie, Mark Lanegan and Duke Garwood, and Idles. There’s also discussion on this year’s Heavy Music Awards, which band have made the most successful change in their sound, and on who is the REAL star of this show!
Most importantly Remfry sits down to chat with Frontierer about their incredible new album Unloved and how they are doing their best to shape heavy music into exciting new forms.
