109 – Oceans of Slumber, Bill Callahan, ’68 and Pig Destroyer

In a surprise twist of events, Steve and Remfry actually have something positive to say about Reading and Leeds Festival, who have (controversially) decided to expand their line-up of headliners from 3 to 6. And speaking of live music, Remfry went to a gig … yes, a live gathering of people, joined together to gawp at someone playing music on stage … live … woo-hoo! And who better to see than friend of the show and ole Riot Act semi-regular Jamie Lenman for his first gig in 165 days eh?

Reviews this week come courtesy of Oceans of Slumber, Bloxx, Bill Callahan, Pig Destroyer and a surprise EP release from ’68.And finally, after a few weeks of utterly despicable grotty garbage on Broken Records, we take a look behind Hollywood actor Corey Feldman’s fifth (yep … fifth!) record Angelic 2 the Core: Angelic Funkadelic / Angelic Rockadelic, a double album that really needs to be heard to be believed! Oh and Steve becomes furious at Remfry’s appraisal of The Lost Boys, a film he’s finally got around to seeing just a short 33 years after it’s initial release.

06 – Groovy Grindcore Baby! Oh Yeah! (feat. Andrew O’Neill)

Oh, behave! It’s another episode of Riot Act baby! …ahem. This week Steve and Remfry spend a bit of quality time together discussing the new album from Clutch, Attan and the ‘groovy’ new album from Pig Destroyer. Yes, really. We also dip our toe into the as yet untouched worlds of hip-hop and electronic music to see what part of it fits under the alternative umbrella.

Heavy metal comedian Andrew O’Neill joins us to talk about the most hilarious moments in metal. There is also a load of Austin Powers impressions for literally no reason… Sorry about that!
