    This time we chat to former Neck Deep bassist, now LA-based producer, Fil Thorpe-Evans. We discuss Neck Deep's rise to becoming arguably the UK's biggest pop punk band.

In 2019 Fil launched his first single under the name Prblm Chld, we discuss where this project has taken him since.

    Alex Costello (ROAM)

    This time we talk to the singer of ROAM, Alex Costello. Alex takes time out of his day to talk through the history of the Eastbourne-based band. He tells us what is was like for a UK-based band to be snapped by the mighty Hopeless Records and the dream tours that that brought about. He tells us about playing Warped Tour and getting to know members of bands like Sum 41 and Good Charlotte. We discuss all of the albums ROAM have released and in particular what it was like to record in a remote Texas studio with the producer Machine.
    ROAM's latest release 'Smile Wide' is out everywhere and they recently shared a making of documentary.

    TJ Horansky (Sleep On It)

    For our 40th episode we are joined by TJ Horansky, guitarist in Chicago band Sleep On It. We discuss Sleep On It's rise to the top, some of his favourite tours and their relationship with Alternative Press. This was recorded just before the music world was heavily affected by Covid-19, so TJ was looking forward to their second trip to the UK where they were due to play Slam Dunk Festival. We wish the band well, and hope to see them over our way in the not too distant future.
    Chris and Nick also find time to discuss some of the new releases from the likes of All Time Low, New Found Glory and Alkaline Trio.

Pretty Damn Good

A simple structure with a really nice flow - touches on both niche and mainstream punk so there's something for everyone and the chemistry between the presenters is great. Also downloaded a couple of the band recommendations after listening so it's great if you're looking for new music suggestions. All in all, a total winner - looking forward to the next one!
