Remfry is away this week, mucking about in Europe. But Riot Act rolls on regardless. Stephen is joined by long time buddy and RA comrade Matt Stocks to review new releases from Foals, Ocean Wisdom and Elbow. Matt brings Against Me’s classic major label debut New Wave in for the first ever one sided trade off. And the boys chat Rock And Roll Hall Of Fame Nominees, Robb Flynn kicking off on instagram and Matt’s recent interview with Jaz Coleman from Killing Joke. Plus Steve compares everyone to Talk Talk. As usual.
It’s another week of looking back on some of 2018’s missed records on this week’s Riot Act. Steve and Remfry chat about this year’s releases from Car Seat Headrest, Thou, Basement, Wire Love, Ocean Wisdom, Nothing and also discuss whether The 1975’s new album really is a ‘Millennial OK Computer’. The trade off see’s the boys talking about the relative merits of Technique by New Order and Caspian’s Dust And Disquiet. And we truly live up to our status as an ‘alternative’ podcast, but exploring some truly alternative lifestyle practices… after all, what’s more alternative than beastiality?
