128 – Smashing Pumpkins, Wardruna, Viagra Boys and Lonely The Brave

This week, we try to kick into 2021 properly, but not before casting our critical eye over Smashing Pumpkins’ 11th studio album CYR which came out at the tail end of 2020. 

Releases covered from 2021 include Wardruna’s Kvitvran, Viagra Boys’ Welfare Jazz and Lonely the Brave’s The Hope List. Steve and Remfry also pay tribute to New York Dolls guitarist Sylvain Sylvain and acknowledge that Phil Spector’s died.
