It's an absolutely monumental week this week, partly cause there's a lot of brilliant new music out but mainly because Remfry's gallivanting off to that bloody Europe next week and alas, he won't be present to wax lyrical about it all for you. But we have another treat for you all in store next week...more details on the show. But nevermind tha ...…
 
Steve and Remfry sit down to discuss the seventh and final album by NY gothic doom merchants Type O Negative. Whilst the album had a decent critical reception, Dead Again is rarely given the credit it's due, with most media attention focusing on the (admittedly brilliant) Bloody Kisses and October Rust. But Dead Again, whilst not perfect, conta ...…
 
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 understa ...…
 
Remfry sat down with George Pettit and Wade MacNeil from Canadian post-hardcore legends Alexisonfire just a few hours before their massive headlining show at London's Alexandra Palace. They discuss the band's reunion, their first new material since 2010's Dog's Blood EP (in the form of singles Familiar Drugs and Complicit) and what the future h ...…
 
Steve and Remfry both ventured out to their first UK festival of the year in the form of Slam Dunk. They bring you their review through a very heavily Riot Acted-tinted perspective (i.e. atypical). Speaking of festivals, they also discuss a couple of interesting additions to the Glastonbury line-up and Steve reports back from Wembley Arena wher ...…
 
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 imp ...…
 
Steve and Remfry bring you their extensive guide to the UK festivals this summer, going through each line-up and giving their recommendations as to which bands you should see (as well as a few bands you should definitely miss). They cover Slam Dunk, All Points East, Portals, Download, Glastonbury, Tech-Fest, 2000Trees, Bloodstock, ArcTanGent an ...…
 
Bonjour is in an incredibly tetchy mood this week, doing everything she can in an attempt to sabotage the podcast and muscle her way in on the reviews. Maybe she's bitter about the fact that Steve's not been able to pay her all that much attention this week, as it's the first catch up show of 2019. And blimey Charlie there is a veritable feast ...…
 
Remfry sat down for a chat with Dan 'Soupy' Campbell from The Wonder Years to discuss their last album Sister Cities, an album that got to #12 on Remfry's Albums of the Year 2018. The record explores empathy in a tumultuous world and how we can find hope in difficult, politically charged times. They also discuss the reaction to the album a year ...…
 
There are new songs by Tool (and, since recording, a release date for their new album of August 30th) but Steve and Remfry don't wanna listen to no shitty phone recording fool! All the same, they find reason to talk about it cause ya know ... Tool! They also review new albums by Employed to Serve, The Get Up Kids and We Never Learned to Live as ...…
 
This week there's a plethora of great albums to discuss from the likes of Frank Carter and the Rattlesnakes, The Wildhearts, The Physics House Band and a collaboration between Marissa Nadler and Stephen Brodsky. Steve also went to see Ho99o9 live, whilst Remfry attended shows by Restorations and Devin Townsend. This week's trade off come courte ...…
 
Steve is pitting Britain vs. America in Trade-off this week, as the quintessentially British The Verve goes up against rootin' tootin' Americana savagists Hootie and the Blowfish. Spoiler, Britian win .... They also review new albums by The Flaming Lips, The Damned Things and Lost in the Riots and Remfry recounts his version of events at Daught ...…
 
Move over Mark Kermode. Eat your heart out Roger Ebert. Put down that popcorn Barry Norman. The Riot Act boys are in town and they're here to talk movies. But they're not doing so alone, as this week they're joined once again by fellow pod-caster extraordinaire (and movie fanatic) Matt Stocks. You wanted the worst, well you got the worst! Steve ...…
 
Remfry somehow managed to secure himself another trip to The Netherlands in as many months, so that he could report back to you about festivities at Roadburn 2019. Space cake may or may not have been consumed. Remfry goes into details about the bands he saw including Cave In, Daughters, Mono and the Jo Quail Quintet, A.A. Williams and more. Bac ...…
 
In an uncharacteristic move for an old cynical punk, Stephen Hill went to see Marks-and-Spencer-core fatigue merchants Doves and Mancunian poptastic royalty Take That and was able to make a surprising comparison between the two. Remfry went to the more usual Riot Act fare of IDLES and Memory of Elephants. The boys also review new releases from ...…
 
Steve gets distracted this week talking about Easter Eggs, despite it being a full week before Easter ... maybe the sheer complexity and mind-boggling nature of this week's albums has gone to his head. And that's hardly surprising, considering the boys review albums by Periphery, PUP, Raketkanon, Waste of Space Orchestra and Town Portal. Remfry ...…
 
This week, Steve and Remfry pay tribute to Scott Walker who passed away on Monday. An innovative and uncompromising artist whose career encompassed everything from 1960s pop to a collaboration with hooded Seattle doom-merchants Sunn O))), Walker was a huge influence on a diverse range of artists including Radiohead, Pulp, Cult of Luna, David Bo ...…
 
Remfry sat down to chat with Devin Townsend, the multi-faceted Canadian musician, songwriter and producer to discuss his most recent record Empath. Townsend talks about working with an orchestra, inviting Chad Kroeger to do backing vocals and incorporating multiple genres together as a musical metaphor for empathy. After our in-depth 45 minute ...…
 
The deluge of great albums are starting to break through the dam of mediocrity that has been 2019, as Steve and Remfry review 4 new albums from Karen O and Danger Mouse, The Cinematic Orchestra, American Football and La Dispute. Remfry also went to see Jamie Lenman, Bob Mould and El Moono and both gents went to see Svalbard and Ithaca. The boys ...…
 
Steve and Remfry are joined this week by two of the most controversial and contentious figures in the history of metal music... well, according to the comments on Metal Hammer's Facebook Page. The two gents attempt to get to the bottom of how two people that don't even have one penis between them(!) could have the audacity to front extreme meta ...…
 
Steve speaks to Winston McCall about Nick Cave, his reception in Australia compared to the UK, his peerless lyricism and McCall's favourite Nick Cave and The Bad Seeds album Abattoir Blues / The Lyre of Orpheus. They also discuss how Nick Cave influences Parkway Drive and in particular how the last NC&TBS's album, 2016's stunning Skeleton Tree, ...…
 
Steve and Remfry pay tribute to two musicians from polar opposites of the music spectrum this week, after the passing of The Prodigy's Keith Flint and Talk Talk's Mark Hollis. They discuss the impact both musicians had, one who united people across several genres and one who changed the face of modern contemporary music. RIP Keith Flint and Mar ...…
 
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 peop ...…
 
On Riot Act’s seventh special, we welcome fellow podcaster Matt Stocks on to the show to talk about music media, and how it’s changing rapidly before our very eyes. What role do podcasts have to play in music media? Why isn’t rock music well-represented in the mainstream music press? Is print really dying? And how exactly did Steve treat former ...…
 
Remfry’s a little err ... spaced out this week after a last minute trip to The Netherlands with ‘most horrible band in the music industry’ Conjurer has left him slightly frazzled. Oh and his tooth ruddy hurts! Steve’s alright though, although he does have a bee in his bonnet about early 00s indie rock. Too right frankly ... it's all shit! Elsew ...…
 
The ninth album from Nick Cave and the Bad Seeds consisted of new and traditional murder ballads, songs that deal with crime or gruesome death. It seemed a very un-commercial move for an artist who had two years previous reached his commercial peak-to-date with 1994’s Let Love In and its accompanying singles Do You Love Me?, Loverman and Red Ri ...…
 
We’ve come over all Heavy Metal on this week’s show, with Steve and Remfry reviewing new albums from Rotting Christ (Black Metal), Crystal Lake (Metalcore) and Dangerface (Not Metal). The boys also recount their experience watching ‘the most metal show of all time’ in the form of At The Gates, Wolves in the Throne Room and the mighty mighty Beh ...…
 
Neil Fallon is one of the most distinctive vocalists in music. As the frontman for Maryland quartet Clutch, he has routinely written exceptional couplets and manipulated his voice in a myriad of astonishing and remarkable ways. 2019 marks Fallon’s 28th year fronting Clutch, one of the most respected and consistent bands in heavy rock, and in th ...…
 
This week Steve and Remfry discuss the ‘controversy’ around the completely uncontroversial decision to let Parkway Drive headline the Saturday night of Bloodstock. Steve certainly doesn’t think it’s a bad idea after seeing their attempt to blow up London’s Alexandra Palace. Remfry plumped for a slightly smaller show with around 10,250 less peop ...…
 
The second Rioteers Review comes from the mind of Alasdhair McMillan, who we thank for being the first person to suggest an album and therefore unintentionally starting thing whole strand of Riot Act. Well done mate! Alasdhair gave Steve and Remfry '22 A Million' by modern folk manipulator Bon Iver. One of the guys is a big fan of Bon Iver, the ...…
 
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 M ...…
 
On this special episode of Riot Act, we are joined by the legendary Freddy Cricien, frontman of one of New York hardcore’s most enduring bands; Madball. With over three decades of hard road toil under his belt, and as a committed lover of live music Steve spoke to Freddy about his five favourite frontmen/women of all time. We get his thoughts o ...…
 
This week's episode of Riot Act comes with a twist! Usually, it’s Steve who is the grumpy one, but this week Remfry is going in on EVERYONE, presumably due to his less than flattering inclusion on the Batman Soundtrack Wikipedia page. He GROANS about Architects' glorious Wembley triumph! He MOANS about Shaun Ryder and his Black Grape chums soun ...…
 
In the first ever in a new series, Steve and Remfry dive deep on an album suggested by the lovely people over on the Riot Act Patreon. This week's pick - Manic Street Preachers' 1993 sophomore effort 'Gold Against The Soul' - comes from Christopher Clayton, and it's a fantastic suggestion seeing as the boys are a couple of 90s Brit rock enthusi ...…
 
It’s another week of great music and jovial chat from the Riot Act chaps, who this week discuss one of the most eagerly anticipated debuts of 2019 by political agit-hardcore punks Fever333 and the brand new album from Japanese post-rock stalwarts Mono. There’s also chat about Idles' unexpected BRIT Award nomination, and this weeks Trade Off lea ...…
 
Despite only ever achieving limited commercials success, Sacramento California’s Far have had a profound influence on a wide range of rock bands including Biffy Clyro, Incubus, Thursday, Jimmy Eat World, Finch, Funeral For a Friend and Deftones. With the release of their forth full-length album Water & Solutions in 1998, Far created their ultim ...…
 
This week, Steve and Remfry discuss the sobering topic of HMV going into administration for a second time and what that could potentially mean for the music industry at large (spoiler, it’s not good). In addition, they talk about some surprising and welcome additions to NME’s ‘Essential new artists for 2019’ as well as the sheer ridiculous situ ...…
 
It’s the first Riot Act of 2019 and as is usually the case for this time of year, there ain’t all that much going on, so Remfry takes the opportunity to crowbar in a record that he’s become utterly obsessed with over Christmas. Speaking of the festive period, Stephen spent most of it watching and re-watching BROS: After the Screaming Stops, the ...…
 
Remfry sat down with Holy Roar Records founder Alex Fitzpatrick and label assistant Sam Robinson to discuss the label that in 2018 alone brought you stunning releases from Rolo Tomassi, Møl, Conjurer, Svalbard, Boss Keloid, Pijn, Talons, Ohhms, Slow Crush, Secret Cutter, Modern Rituals, Garganjua, Giver, Group of Man, Portrayal of Guilt and Bur ...…
 
It’s the first ever Riot Act Big Fat Alternative Quiz of the Year and we’ve roped in eight guests to pit their wits against a plethora of questions about the year in music, including Matt Reynolds (Haggard Cat), Em Foster (Nervus/Milk Teeth), Brady Deeprose (Conjurer), Hannah Boulton (Bledig), James Spence (Rolo Tomassi), Lizzie Coulson (KLAE), ...…
 
It’s only ruddy bloody Christmas isn’t it, and we couldn’t leave our faithful followers in the lurch when it came to delivering a Riot Act Christmas special. And who better to deliver such a sermon than our very own regular special guest Mr Jamie Lenman. In the fourth edition of The World According to Jamie Lenman, the moustachioed wunderkind e ...…
 
It’s part two of Riot Act’s Albums of the Year 2018 extravaganza and there is a multitude of questions to be answered. Who will be Steve’s Number One? Who will be Remfry’s Number One? Will Muse be in Steve’s worst albums of the year? Will Muse be in Remfry’s worst albums of the year? As well as all that excitement, the boys shout out their gigs ...…
 
As we reach the end of the year it’s time for Steve and Remfry to look back on the last twelve months and whittle it down to the cream of the crop. That’s right, it’s the first annual Riot Act Top 20 Albums of the Year podcast. This week the boys kick off with numbers 20 to 11 and also discuss the records that just missed out, the best EPs of 2 ...…
 
It’s Riot Act’s first official special, and in the time-honoured tradition of shouting about the things we’re passionate about, we’ve decided to dedicate 90 minutes to the very special and unique Roadburn festival. Taking place annually in the serene city of Tilburg in The Netherlands, Roadburn seeks to constantly explore and push the boundarie ...…
 
It’s another week of looking back on some of 2018’s missed records on this week’s Riot Act. Steve and Remfry chat about this year’s releases from Carseat Headrest, Thou, Basement, Wire Love, Ocean Wisdom, Nothing and also discuss whether The 1975’s new album really is a ‘Millennial OK Computer’. The trade off see’s the boys talking about the re ...…
 
With just 31 days left of 2018, Steve and Remfry delve into albums released over the past 11 months that they missed first time around. In the first part of this two part round-up, the boys look at albums by The Armed, itoldyouiwouldeatyou, Louise Lemón, Ovlov, Kississippi, Ólafur Arnalds and Twenty One Pilots. Elsewhere, Remfry sat down with c ...…
 
Steve and Remfry aren’t just fountains of musical knowledge, they are massive cinephiles as well. This week the guys wax lyrical over the relative merits of comedy classics Police Academy 7: Mission To Moscow and See No Evil, Hear No Evil. When they can be bothered to talk about music there are reviews on the latest releases from Smashing Pumpk ...…
