It’s our first catch-up show of the year, something which you’ll likely be seeing more of over the coming weeks considering all the major records are being pushed back in release schedules due to … well, ya know. Remfry and Steve review new albums by Moby and Paradise Lost and catch up on records by The Strokes, Mark Lanegan, Therapy? and Bear. There’s also a short tribute to Richard Wayne Penniman, AKA Little Richard and another short tribute to Brian May’s buttock
Steve and Remfry are reviewing a veritable feast of new releases this week by the likes of Car Seat Headrest, Gold Key, Flies Are Spies From Hell and Umbra Vitae, whilst our broken record comes courtesy of arena rock behemoths Queen (and Paul Rodgers) with their 2008, 16th studio album ‘The Cosmos Rocks’.
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.
