In an uncharacteristic move, Steve and Remfry are singing Paramore songs, probably due to the release of the debut solo album by Hayley Williams, which is reviewed alongside new albums by The Hirsch Effekt, Winterfylleth and Fake Names. Meanwhile Broken Records is laced with a thin film of smut as the boys dissect Slick Dogs and Ponies, the third and thankfully final album by perma-erect San Diego rock band Louis XIV
There are a plethora of live shows to cover this week on Riot Act, as Steve went to the rather morbid Static-X, Soil and Wednesday 13 in London whilst Remfry went to see Emma Ruth Rundle, Jo Quail in Bristol and Lingua Ignota in London. He also hot-footed it off to Cologne to report back from the 15th edition of Euroblast Festival where he saw a strong contender for worst gig in 20 years of seeing shows.
Albums reviewed include The Menzingers, The Number Twelve Looks Like You, Renounced and Body Hound and trade off comes courtesy of Death By Stereo and Sunny Day Real Estate.
