45 – Heroin For Christmas

This week on Riot Act, Remfry watched some live music in the form of Alexisonfire at Ally Pally and The St. Pierre Snake Invasion at The Black Heart and Steve watched some “live” music at the Bring Me The Horizon day of All Points East festival who brought with them a veritable bunch of other bands who, for the most part, don’t seem to understand the basic concept of live music.

New albums come courtesy of Jane’s Addiction / Porno For Pyros legend Perry Farrell, Pelican, Motanka and Pleaides and in possibly the oddest trade-off so far, Steve listens to BRITN3Y by BRITNEY and Remfry endures Morbid Angel’s Illud Divinum Insanus.

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.

14 – Not in Kermit’s Mouth

Steve’s absolutely furious this week because he’s got a cold and is surely just a cough away from certain death. Remfry feels fine (thanks for asking) although he is slightly perturbed by the colour of Steve’s toilet seat. Despite these debilitating circumstances, neither are discouraged from talking about some of the most exciting new music in the alternative sphere, which this week takes the form of reviews of albums by Sick of it All, Toska and Sylvaine.

Remfry headed across to Oxford to see Idles continue to take the country by storm, whilst Steve ventured to London’s Roundhouse to see Pixies play Surfer Rosa and Come On Pilgrim in full and they both had fairly different views of Turnstile’s show at House of Vans. Elsewhere new songs from Slipknot and While She Sleeps are discussed and in place of trade-off this week, Steve and Remfry pick their Top Five albums from Epitaph, the legendary American independent record label setup by Bad Religion’s Brett Gurewitz in 1980.
