Remfry is joined by Ben Tipple, a freelance journalist who has worked for Kerrang!, Metro, Punktastic, GoldFlakePaint and DIY, to review one of the best festivals the UK has to offer, 2000muthafuckinTrees. Remfry and Ben review 42 bands over the course of 3+ hours including Every Time I Die, Jamie Lenman, The Armed, Holding Absence, Phoxjaw, Mongol Horde, Therapy? Milk Teeth, Raketkanon, Frank Turner and the Sleeping Souls, Haggard Cat, Puppy, Drug Church, Rolo Tomassi and probably for the first and last time You Me At Six.
It’s a bumper week this week what with obtuse Scottish arena rock botherers Biffy Clyro shocking us all by releasing a new album in the form of a soundtrack to feature film Balance, Not Symmetry. Steve and Remfry cast their critical eye upon it, as well as new albums by Rammstein, Morrissey, Destrage and Petrol Girls
There’s also sad new to impart from the Slipknot camp and Steve has an unsolicited theory as to the identity of their new member, plus trade-off goes from the sublime to the utterly turgid with The Hold Steady’s Boys and Girls in America and Collapsed Lung’s Cooler both being discussed.
