31 – Dead Man Conjuring

On this week’s Riot Act we have a very special guest in the form of Conjurer’s Brady Deeprose, who appears to have come on the show purely to correct Steve and Remfry’s pronunciation. What a tosser!
Steve and Brady review Downsurge Festival, Remfry went to see The Wonder Years and Steve reluctantly covers The Brits where he discovered that people actually like pop music … who would’ve thought?

The trio review albums by While She Sleeps, In Flames and Mark Morton whilst Trade-Off comes courtesy of The Church of Rock N Roll by Foxy Shazam and Ænima by Tool.

27 – Get a Neck You Sad Little Goat

After nearly coming to blows the Riot Act chaps are both up for a ruck again this week as they review the surprise new covers album by Weezer. Which is either a genuinely brilliant piece of marketing, if you believe Remfry, or a cynical, stinking waste of everyone’s time, according to Steve.

There are also reviews on the new albums from Bring Me The Horizon, Ithaca and Spielbergs, a Trade Off between Cult Leader’s A Patient Man and Favez’s From Lausanne, Switzerland and a whole load of live reviews courtesy of Fucked Up, Boss Keloid, Mastodon and Sick Of It All.

02 – Testicular Embolisation, You First (feat. Andy Cairns from Therapy?)

Stephen and Remfry discuss the world of alternative music this week off the back of some painful experiences. Remfry had his ears ruined by seeing Employed To Serve, Rough Hands, and Leeched. Stephen is smarting from an operation on his… well, you’ll see! It’s pretty gross. Let’s move on. 

The boys review the latest records from Scars On Broadway, Dirty Projectors, Night Verses, Birds In Row, and the debut EP from Urne. There is also talk about some questionable decisions made by The Smashing Pumpkins on their recent 30th anniversary show, the theological metaphors surrounding the stunning new Behemoth video, and we are joined by our first ever guest; Therapy? frontman Andy Cairns who gives us an in depth look at their hugely underrated 2000 album Suicide Pact, You First.
