If you’re here then we’d like to assume you are a music fan with impeccable taste, and appreciate the job we’re trying to do in promoting the very best in alternative music. Both Stephen and Remfry (that’s us) have written and spoken millions of words about our favourite bands in everything from The Independent and The Guardian to Metal Hammer and Team Rock Radio, and beyond. We have dedicated large chunks of our lives to passionately promoting our favourite music, but never has there been a ...

The heatwave continues but it won’t deter Steve or Remfry from reviewing the latest releases from the world of alternative music. In the news, we discover that Steve won’t have to get a tattoo of Corey Taylor on his face (boooo) all thanks to the Mercury Music Prize nominations, as good a reason to dislike awards shows as you could imagine. And the…
 
It’s pretty thin on the ground for albums this week and it’s been a solid 18 months since we’ve done a Q&A so … whether you want it or not, here’s Q&A#2! Find out the shocking truth about Steve’s secret Shikari addiction, the revelation that Remfry might not think Kanye is total balls and the question that’s been on the lips of the entire music ind…
 
As part of our second anniversary celebrations last year, we turned Rioteers Review on ourselves for the first (and last) time. Steve and Remfry are discussing Overton Progessive Melodic Noisecore band Stegal, the 2001 debut full-length album fronted by a certain Mr. Stephen 'Bri' Hill. A searing amalgam of Deftones' White Pony and Converge's Jane …
 
This week, Steve and Remfry discuss the 'doomsday vault' that is being created on the archipelago of Svalbard (just off the coast of Norway) to preserve the world's best music and whether the lockdown restrictions lifting in the UK on 19th July will (hopefully) mean that some UK-based festivals (we're looking at your Bloodstock and Reading and Leed…
 
We can officially announce that it's coming home but no-one's bothered to tell Remfry what 'it' is ... luckily Steve's on hand to inform, educate and entertain, three things that we're super psyched to do on this podcast. We also discuss why Bruce Dickinson is a bit of a plonker and talk about the latest allegations against Marilyn Manson. New rele…
 
In a bid to annoy Steve, Remfry has taken a suggestion from the Download forums to discuss the debut album from our lord and savior Jesus Chr... I mean Tom Delonge. As suggested by Asthenia 912 (likely not their real name) we try to get to the bottom of Delonge's messianic complex and how on earth he could have viewed this U2 knock off as "the grea…
 
It's a bumper 3 hour show this week because Stephen 'I hate weather' Hill has been to a festival (say whaaaaaat!?), the Download Pilot (26:02). We hear his views on this history making event as well as taking a look at the forthcoming Black Album re-issue from Metallica and the varied line-up of artists they have New releases reviewed this week are…

Remfry and Steve honour Skunk Anansie's Skin as she is set to receive an OBE from The Queen (the monarch, not the band), discuss Roger Waters being aggy over social media and James Labrie guesting on his son's band's cover of Kickstart my Heart by Mötley Crüe, a song that feels as if it were recorded single-handedly with the intention of enraging u…
 
It’s been a minute since we’ve released any Interview Specials what with one thing and another but we’re back with a very special chat indeed as Remfry sat down with Tom Begley, the mastermind and low-end rumble provider from post-metal stoner legends Bossk. We’re here to discuss their second full-length album Migration, a record that had a very un…
 
Steve and Remfry discuss the relative merits of writing their memoirs ... is it too early? Could we ask Jordan to ghost write it? Would anybody care? Expect to see two volumes in your local Waterstones by the end of the week (RRP £18.99). Something that will undoubtedly be better written is Bill Bailey's proposed song for Eurovision 2022, something…
 
Steve and Remfry 'go down and deep' on the Download Pilot line-up and end up completely and utterly contradicting our stance from last week by having a *whispers* bit of a moan. Still ... festivals are back ... sort of ... yay! Something that no-one in their right mind should have a problem with is us moaning about the fact that Vince Neil STILL ha…
 
Steve and Remfry are keeping the Sabbath dream alive as they take a look at Sons of the Pioneers, the debut (and only) full-length album by 'nu-metal' one hit wonders The Workhorse Movement as suggested by Doug Rae. Outrageously coloured hair, mustard-coloured suits, two vocalists, one of whom is called 'cornbread' ... it could only be the early 20…
 
Steve's furious as per after Remfry takes 25 minutes to make a coffee ... Why do something in 3 minutes when you can do it in 25 eh? Once we get around to talking about ... ya know, MUSIC, we discuss the news that Download are set to host a three day pilot festival at a capacity of 10,000 in three weeks time ... a festival ... with music ... in a f…
 
Remfry and Steve discuss weird collaborations as the news breaks that A$AP Rocky has wrangled in Morrissey to guest on his new album ........ joy! In other news, Slipknot's Shawn Crahan (AKA Clown) is to release his own brand of Cannabis products, Glastonbury have been granted a license to hold a mini-festival called Equinox with a capacity of 50,0…
 
Steve and Remfry discuss 1987's Scream Bloody Gore, the debut album by Death, as suggested by Tom Butterworth. The boys discuss the album's standing as the first true death metal album ever and whether it deserves such a lofty title, they ponder the impact Death have had on the metal world at large and pontificate about the size of venues Death wou…
 
Steve let's his love for Depeche Mode's Martin Gore be known in a very unorthodox way and seems intent on bringing the weird perversion up frequently on this week's show. Remfry, no stranger to wild perversions himself, respects Steve's life choices, but wants no part of it. Thank the God of synth-pop then that there's plenty to talk about on this …
 
Remfry is uncharacteristically keen to talk about the rumours of a new Spice World film that is set to emerge next year to coincide with Spice Girls' 25th anniversary (according to The Sun ... so maybe don't get your hopes up Spice Girls fans). Also in the news, one of the best new stories of the year, nay the decade, nay EVER - a drunk man was arr…
 
We've resisted covering some BIG albums on Classic Albums over the year or so that we've been putting these out but one area we simply couldn't resist dipping our toe into any longer was the Seattle Grunge (not a genre) scene. And in typical Riot Act fashion, we start with an album which is about as far away from the 'typical' grunge sound as you c…
 
With the sad news that 2000Trees has had to postpone their 2021 edition, Steve and Remfry take a realistic look at whether the UK will be seeing festivals this summer or not ... don't get your hopes up. But nevermind, there's always 2022 and Download have swooped in to cheer us all up by announcing 70+ bands for next year's line-up, which is exciti…
 
As suggested by Jed Grainger, Steve and Remfry discuss the debut (and only) album from the short-lived project formed by Omar Rodriguez Lopez and Cedric Bixler-Zavala of At the Drive-In / The Mars Volta fame. Released digitally on July 1st 2014 (november 10th 2014 physically) Antemasque caused a minor ripple for fans of At the Drive-In and The Mars…
 
Remfry and Steve start this week's show on a sombre note as we pay tribute to Jim Steinman, the colourful composer behind hits like Bat Out Of Hell and Total Eclipse Of The Heart, who passed away earlier this week from kidney failure after being ill for some time. In other news, the internet has been a-buzz with hype after Mudvayne announced they a…
 
Steve and Remfry discuss the passing of DMX as well as the dubious reunion of Emperor with ex-member Mortiis (fine) and Faust (.... ah!) Probably not your finest move Ihsahn, we'll be honest. Albums reviewed this week are Ultra Pop by The Armed (22:25) The Battle At Garden's Gate by Greta Van Fleet (39:41) Sleeps Society by While She Sleeps (56:30)…
 
Steve and Remfry discuss A Weekend in the City, the 2007 sophomore album from Bloc Party, as suggested by Luke (Spunknuts?). Both the Riot Act boys LOVE debut album Silent Alarm but how does the follow-up fare 13 years after it's initial release? They also discuss the band's forays into electronica, the Radiohead comparisons that came as a result o…
 
In the first part of our mammoth double classic album special on French tech-death lords Gojira, Remfry and Steve look specifically at the latter part of their career and the two albums that lead up to 2021’s forthcoming album Fortitude. 2012's L'Enfant Sauvage proved to be the moment where Gojira became unstoppable. Yes the underground had been hy…
 
There are important updates on Broken Records, Classic Albums and Remfry's squeaky chair this week as well as news on will.i.am's latest foray into the world of tech and Ronnie Wood has been granted the freedom of the city of London ... lucky him! Reviews this week include Let the Bad Times Roll by The Offspring (19:47) The Greatest Mistake of my L…
 
Remfry's had his first vaccination much to Steve's chagrin. Irrefutable proof that the NHS believe Remfry is a better person than Steve (guess who's writing this episode description). In other far less exciting news, Daron Malakian has stated that 'guns are essential' in response to a frankly bizarre (and pretty crap to be honest) cover of BYOB by …
 
Originally posted to Patreon – June 2nd 2020 Remfry and Steve discuss the self-titled debut album released by Placebo, as suggested by Cameron Sheppard. Released on 17th June 1996, Steve and Remfry discuss how the band exploded in a cloud of glitter and dewy panda-eyed cynicism into a British culture obsessed with Britpop and lad culture as well as…
