146 – black midi, Perturbator, Noctule and Mannequin Pussy

Steve’s furious as per after Remfry takes 25 minutes to make a coffee … Why do something in 3 minutes when you can do it in 25 eh?

Once we get around to talking about … ya know, MUSIC, we discuss the news that Download are set to host a three day pilot festival at a capacity of 10,000 in three weeks time … a festival … with music … in a field … in three weeks. Bet the internet’s still gonna kick off though isn’t it! Oh and ex-Megadeth bassist David Ellefson is, in the words of Frankie Howerd, a very dirty old man.


Reviews this week are Cavalcade by black midi, Lustful Sacraments by Perturbator, Wretched Abyss by Noctule and Perfect by Mannequin Pussy.
