126 – Paul McCartney, Deftones, The Dirty Nil, Cazador

It’s our first review show of 2021, but as is often the case at the beginning of the year, there aren’t all that many new releases worth talking about, so instead, Remfry and Steve review some of the big hitters from the end of 2020 that they missed due to Album of the Year shenanigans, including new releases from Paul McCartney, Deftones, The Dirty Nil and Cazador. 

Sadly things aren’t as quiet on the news front as we pay tribute to two musicians who both passed away recently; underground hip-hop rapper MF Doom and Children of Bodom guitarist / vocalist Alexi Laiho. Plus we get political after photographs of Iced Earth guitarist Jon Schaffer are circulated showing him to be one of the protestors at the US Capitol siege.
