54 – Queen With Screaming

It’s a huge week for music this week as Steve and Remfry discuss the sixth album from metal behemoths Slipknot. There is also chat on new releases from The Hold Steady, Cultdreams and Pijn & Conjurer. As if that wasn’t enough there is also a mammoth trade off, where the lads discuss Maybeshewill’s excellent debut album Not For Want Of Trying and then try and unpack the relative merits of one of the most influential records of the Millennium; 808’s And Heartbreak by hip-hop visionary/big headed loony (delete as applicable) Kayne West.

There is also chat about the official cancellation of Woodstock 50, and the Jamey Jasta vs Chvrches Twitter spat. Which leads to Steve #Cancelling the NME… AGAIN!

43 – No Mash to Heat Up Your Beans

It’s a bumper week this week what with obtuse Scottish arena rock botherers Biffy Clyro shocking us all by releasing a new album in the form of a soundtrack to feature film Balance, Not Symmetry. Steve and Remfry cast their critical eye upon it, as well as new albums by Rammstein, Morrissey, Destrage and Petrol Girls

There’s also sad new to impart from the Slipknot camp and Steve has an unsolicited theory as to the identity of their new member, plus trade-off goes from the sublime to the utterly turgid with The Hold Steady’s Boys and Girls in America and Collapsed Lung’s Cooler both being discussed.
