Riot Act

159 – Turnstile, Jinjer, Sugar Horse and Sons of Alpha Centauri

This episode of Riot Act is dedicated to Mathew Davies (RIP)

On this week’s show, we pay our respects to Charlie Watt, the ‘engine’ behind the drum kit for The Rolling Stones who passed away on 24th August at the age of 80. In other news, Spencer Elden, the baby on the cover of Nirvana’s seminal 1991 album Nevermind, is suing surviving  band members Dave Grohl and Krist Noveselic, Courtney Love, photographer Kirk Weddle, the managers of Kurt Cobain’s estate, his Grandma, his second cousin, his dog, the first girl he ever kissed and probably Steve if he ever hears this podcast, after alleging that his parents never signed a release authorising the use of the image for the artwork. The lawsuit also cites the image as ‘child pornography’ … right you are Spence mate…

Albums reviewed on this week’s show are Glow On by Turnstile, Wallflowers by Jinjer, The Live Long After by Sugar Horse, and Push by Sons of Alpha Centauri
