Riot Act

166 – Every Time I Die, The Darkness, BadBadNotGood and Slow Crush

It’s another week of alternative music chat here on Riot Act, but before that, different drinks for different… needs… as Remfry chugs down a big glass of some fizzy, technicoloured orange monstrosity which will rot his kidney away, while Steve politely sips on a cool glass of water.

It’s pretty much the only thing that our hosts do disagree on this week, as they chat about ex-Slayer guitarist Kerry King admitting that he believes his band quit too early, even though they haven’t really put out a decent record for nearly two decades. Quite how Steve would break that to Kerry… well… he probably wouldn’t, the big wuss. In reviews we look at the latest albums from Buffalo, New York hardcore veterans Every Time I Die, UK classic rock diehards The Darkness, Canadian modern, hip-hop affiliated jazz trio Badbadnotgood and underground Belgian shoegaze quartet Slow Crush.
