Welcome to another weekly instalment of Riot Act, your dose of news and opinions on all recent alternative music shenanigans. It’s been a wild time putting the show together this week, as both Steve and Remfry are reeling from the news that one of hardcore’s most beloved and inspirational bands have split up. We talk through the Every Time I Die split before paying tribute to them as best we can by each choosing five songs from their illustrious back catalogue to create our own personal ETID super playlist.
That’s not all though, there’s also chat on recent releases from Elvis Costello, Comeback Kid, Toundra and Som, live reviews of Idles and Haggard Cat, the surprising (if fairly minor) rise in CD sales and how old and confused we feel by the recent announcement of the emo*-tastic When We Were Young one day festival in Las Vegas later this year.
*NOT REAL EMO!
