48 – Bland Metalcore Is Not The Future

Remfry’s back this week to talk about the ridiculous amount of shows he managed to see whilst yo-yoing across Europe including Cult Leader / Birds In Row / Coilguns (London) Dead Kennedys & Haggard Cat (Czech Republic) Bokassa, Ghost & Metallica (kinda London) Nick Cave (definitely London) and Tool (Amsterdam). Phew! Oh and Steve saw Hatebreed… 

Album reviews come courtesy of The Boss Bruce Springsteen’s 19th album Western Stars and The Raconteurs Help Us Stranger and this week’s trade-off comes courtesy of Neil Young’s Mirrorball and Steve’s 16th favourite album of all time, The Paperchase’s Hold The Kitchen Knives

42 – Bonjour Saboteur

Bonjour is in an incredibly tetchy mood this week, doing everything she can in an attempt to sabotage the podcast and muscle her way in on the reviews. Maybe she’s bitter about the fact that Steve’s not been able to pay her all that much attention this week, as it’s the first catch up show of 2019. And blimey Charlie there is a veritable feast of fantastic albums that the Riot Act crew have missed over the last 5 months.

Steve and Remfry look back over 8 albums they missed by Sharon van Etten, Idiot Pilot, Latitudes, Teeth of the Sea, Cartograpghs, Herod, Lotus Eater and SeeYouSpaceCowboy

On top of that, there are an additional two album reviews from opposite ends of the Riot Act spectrum both out this week courtesy of The National’s ‘I Am Easy To Find’ and Full of Hell’s ‘Weeping Choir. There’s also live reviews of Brutus, Employed to Serve, Loathe and Devil Sold His Soul.
