    S3 E2: Summers from Eat Defeat

    S3 E2: Summers from Eat Defeat

    On our latest episode of the Shout Louder Punk Podcast we have a great chat with Andrew Summers! You may remember him from such bands as Eat Defeat, Kickback UK and The Fractions... as well as his career as a well-respected, Pokemon-obsessed tour manager.

    We get cosy in his living room in Leeds to talk touring, caffeine and all things ska. Fresh off a USA tour with Eat Defeat, he's got plenty of tales to tell. We reminisce about the noughties UK punk scene, harmless run ins with the police and trips to our favourite tour venues.

    Eat Defeat have just released a new single Wake Up, which you can hear on the podcast, along with their earlier song Can't Say I'll Miss You.

    S3 E1: Goodbye Blue Monday

    S3 E1: Goodbye Blue Monday

    The Shout Louder podcast makes a triumphant return, with Scottish misery-punks Goodbye Blue Monday!

    Sarah caught up with Graham Lough on tour, to talk about the band's musical origins, the minefield of mental health and The Power of Ska.

    The whole interview with Goodbye Blue Monday was a right giggle, and will appeal to old fans and new. Give it a listen and get excited for the new season of the podcast!

    The podcast features some special musical treats from Goodbye Blue Monday, the Garry Biscuits cover band and Terrafraid's 'Control'. Misery-punk may have ruined their lives, but it makes for a hilarious listen.

    S2 E10: Mute & One Hidden Frame

    S2 E10: Mute & One Hidden Frame

    Over the summer, Sarah got the opportunity to chat with two of the international fast-punk scene's most stunningly melodic acts.

    Firstly, at Brakrock Ecofest in Belgium, Sarah caught up with Étienne Dionne and Alexis Trépanier from Canadian technical masters Mute, a band who've been stunning audiences with their unrivalled guitar work for 20 years. As true legends of the tech scene they have a brilliant selection of tour tales to share with us.

    Later, at Punk Rock Holiday, Sarah had a fun chat with Pekka Multaharju and Emil Stenbäck from One Hidden Frame: a brilliant melodic hardcore band from Lappeenranta in Finland and one of Shout Louder's personal favourites.

    One Hidden Frame have been going since 2002, however some of their best work has come in the form of their 2017 album Harmful Content and their recently released split EP with Thousand Oaks. We were absolutely delighted to get to chat to one another, and no doubt you'll enjoy it too.

    If you're a fan on technical, interesting melodic hardcore, then you will love this podcast. Even if that's not your bag musically, we're sure you'll love our chat.


    These were the songs we played:

    Mute - Fill The Void
    Adrenalized - Crawling From The Ashes (feat. Étienne Dionne)
    One Hidden Frame - Exploding Head Syndrome
    Fullcount - The Motion (feat. Étienne Dionne)

    S2 E9: Revenge of The Psychotronic Man Farewell Special

    S2 E9: Revenge of The Psychotronic Man Farewell Special

    A couple of weeks ago, Sarah met up with Andy Davies, Chris 'Big Hands' Hinsley and Matt Woods from Manchester's Revenge Of The Psychotronic Man down the pub. We got pissed and we talked s**t... and we recorded the whole thing.

    Revenge have been a band for nearly 15 years, however they've chosen to call it a day in 2018. We took this final opportunity to celebrate their history as a band, and to say goodbye to an act that have been overwhelmingly influential in the UK punk scene - a shining example of what can be achieved through a truly DIY approach.

    You can expect talk of human pyramids, tigers, Mr Blobby and Princess Diana... all accompanied by a healthy pint or four. We also have an exclusive announcement: listen up and you'll get to hear the first band announcement for their farewell gig on December 8th.

    These were the tunes we played:

    Revenge... - Planet Earth II
    Revenge... - Another Way
    Revenge... - Booze Time
    Bootscraper - Captain Gin vs. Victory Gin
    Revenge... - Beer For Breakfast (Tim G Remix)

    S2 E8: Derrick Johnston from Make-That-A-Take Records

    S2 E8: Derrick Johnston from Make-That-A-Take Records

    2018 has been a busy year for Derrick Johnston. As one of Scotland's DIY musical stalwarts, he's probably best known for running Make-That-A-Take Records and being one of the organisers of Book Yer Ane Fest. His band Uniforms have recently released a new 7'' EP via TNS Records and he's been solidly touring his solo project Tragical History Tour. He's part of a crew that runs Conroy's Basement in Dundee alongside a good ol' regular job. It's been non-stop.

    Fortunately, Derrick managed to impart some of his wisdom and share some mutual music appreciation with Sarah on today's podcast. With years of experience in booking and playing shows, promoting bands and making the most of what you've got, Derrick's an inspiring individual and a pleasure to listen to.

    Enjoy today's podcast and remember, even when you're feeling like Sisyphus pushing the rock up the hill, the pure love created by the DIY punk scene is more than worth the effort.

    These are the tunes we played:

    - Uniforms - Searchlights
    - Kaddish - Scattered Islands Of A Shattered Idea
    - Goodbye Blue Monday - Love Is A Noose For Two
    - Tragical History Tour - Old Words

    S2 E7: Punk Rock Holiday Cocktail Special #2

    S2 E7: Punk Rock Holiday Cocktail Special #2

    On today's podcast, we will be whisking you back in time to the beautiful, sun-drenched beach at Punk Rock Holiday. Sarah grabbed Spoilers, Rebuke and Captain Trips for a chat at Slovenia's premier punk festival. Grab a drink, put your feet up and listen to us getting progressively drunker as the day goes on.

    Ben Davis and Dan Goatham from Kentish punks Spoilers have just released a sterling debut album in the form of Roundabouts. They're a hilarious bunch so we jumped at the change to discuss the album, their summer holiday plans and the magic of Punk Rock Holiday.

    We speak to Petter Mossberg and Phil Nordling from skate-punks Rebuke. We share a pina colada, discuss their 15 years as a band, the current Swedish music scene and some of the bands they currently admire.

    Finally, we spoke to Rich Mayor of Portsmouth skate-punks Captain Trips. We were officially 10+ cocktails deep at the time of recording, so it's nice to have a recorded reminder of a conversation we'd no doubt have forgotten. We cover important topics like showering, cress, sweat, flip-flops, Dean Gaffney and solo projects.

    I highly recommend sticking around to the end, as Sarah's sobriety goes rapidly downhill in quite an amusing way. As Petter quite accurately puts it, "You meet too many cocktails."


    We play the following songs:

    - Spoilers - Roundabouts
    - Rebuke - Take To The Seas
    - Captain Trips - Bottom Of The River
