It’s an episode 100 bonanza, as Steve and Remfry review new releases by HAIM, A.A. Williams, Phoxjaw, Hum and Glorious and they beam up William Shatner to our Broken Records pit of despair (if you can beam one up to a pit) covering his 1968 album The Transformed Man.
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 another incredibly busy week as Steve and Remfry review new releases by Thom Yorke, The Black Keys, Jamie Lenman, 3Teeth and Phoxjaw as well as live reviews of Converge, Weezer, Gojira, Rolo Tomassi, Will Haven and Conjurer (for the umpteenth bloody time!) They also discuss the Glastonbury headlines performances from The Killers, The Cure and Stormzy.
Steve and Remfry aren’t just fountains of musical knowledge, they are massive cinephiles as well. This week the guys wax lyrical over the relative merits of comedy classics Police Academy 7: Mission To Moscow and See No Evil, Hear No Evil. When they can be bothered to talk about music there are reviews on the latest releases from Smashing Pumpkins, Mumford And Sons, Failure and Azusa. Plus a trade off involving the self titled debut album by Gravity Kills and Marriages Kitsune EP. And we are once again joined by, literally, everybody’s friend Jamie Lenman for another ‘The World According to Jamie Lenman’, this time on Queen’s utterly maddening Hot Space album. Right, we’re off to lawyer up before Kevin Spacey hears this.
