    Punk Rock Radio - Round #2

    Punk Rock Radio - Round #2

    On this week's podcast I got really damn angry about the UK government, coronavirus, sexism and racism, and I argued with trolls on the internet.

    I enjoyed the new radio podcast format massively for Round #1, so I thought I'd try it again. I've played some bangers and done my best to give you some solo banter - I've talked a lot more on this episode and I will not be the slightest bit offended if you skip ahead to the juicy punk rock tunes.

    Here are the tracks we play this week:
    Swayze - St Angry
    Jealous - Hypocrite's Oath
    Bangers - I Don't Feel Like I'll Ever Be Clean Again
    Trophy Jump - Glass Bell
    Snuff - Nick Northern
    Screaming Toenail - IOU
    Mighty Midgets - Thoughts On Article 19
    Ructions - Design Accident
    Bear Trade -Bleedin' Heart Trouble
    Punk Rock Covers - I Wipe My Arse With Showbiz (A Wilhelm Scream cover)
    Dead Neck - The Sickness The Shame (Goodbye Blue Monday cover)
    Darko - Neo Was An Amateur
    Polar Bear Club - Living Saints
    Neurotic Fiction - Assimilate
    The Arrogant Sons of Bitches - So Let's Go! Nowhere
    The Slackers - Married Girl
    Burnt Tapes - Yuzi (acoustic)

    S3 E4: COVID-19 Drunkcast with Josh Sumner (Fair Do's)

    S3 E4: COVID-19 Drunkcast with Josh Sumner (Fair Do's)

    In an effort to bring some light to your locked-down lives, we've recorded an absolute shambling train wreck of a podcast for your entertainment.

    Josh plays bass in Fair Do's, takes excellent live music photographs under the moniker Cold Front Photography, and is an integral part of the Shout Louder operation behind the scenes. He's also not usually allowed near microphones for reasons that will become immediately obvious.

    Full of in jokes and with almost no relevance to music whatsoever, we run the verbal gamut of mental health, technology, hygiene, elephants and shitting in salad bowls.

    We hope that this bonus episode will bring some relief from the lockdown, the coughing and daily enforced viewings of Boris Johnson's droopy mug. Apologies in advance for everything you're about to hear.

    The Shout Louder podcast has been active behind the scenes, and we promise we'll have some more real, proper, actual episodes for you in the near future.

    The song featured at the end of the podcast is Candleman by Fair Do's. Go check out Josh's projects:

    S3 E3: Ed Hall from All Silk Recording & Mastering

    S3 E3: Ed Hall from All Silk Recording & Mastering

    In December 2019, Sarah travelled up to Colne, Lancashire to record a fresh interview for the Shout Louder podcast, with Ed Hall at All Silk Mastering House.

    Ed is an incredibly knowledgeable, affable audio engineer, who's dedicated his life to recording and working in music. Previously known for his bands A War Against Sound and Egos At The Door, he's now playing with Edgarville but focusing on his business.

    Ed has recently expanded his business to include All Silk Recording Studio, a new recording space in Rawtenstall, so that they can offer a full recording, mixing and mastering service. They also do live sessions that are an ideal starter for DIY bands.

    These are the tunes we played:
    Swears - Cabin Fever
    Egos At The Door - 9-5 Ethics

    You can follow Ed at all of the following:

    All Silk Mastering House: https://www.allsilkmasteringhouse.com/
    YouTube: https://www.youtube.com/channel/UCzTZey-EVaoSIE2Dyn64jEw/videos
    Facebook: https://www.facebook.com/allsilkmasteringhouse/

    We'd highly recommend Ed to anyone looking to record. He's based in Lancashire, not far north of Manchester. Be sure to check out his live sessions as well.

    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.
