Join us as we meticulously review a copy of Kerrang! or Metal Hammer, from the golden age of ROCK, 1987-1989

    PWM30: Kerrang 257 (Sept 23 1989) - If we ever get to the bottom of it

    PWM30: Kerrang 257 (Sept 23 1989) - If we ever get to the bottom of it

    This week we’re taking a look at Lenny Kravitz, and asking is he too sexy to be into Star Wars? Talking of NSFW content, we remember a classic Steve Guttenburg video, and assess the career of Judge Reinhold.
    Kerrang’s cover star is Marillion new boy Steve Hogarth, in a leaf related photoshoot. We ask is their latest single ideal to be used in an 80s douchebag comedy movie, and whether they should have worked with The Bonzo Dog Doo Dah Band. Alice Cooper’s on tour and America is cracking down on rudeness. 
    Danish rockers Disneyland After Dark lead us to speculate about what that would actually be like, because we are apparently Disney adults. Also if the mysterious Club 33 want to give a couple of influential podcasters a membership, we’ll totally be up for that and be absolute shills and/or keep it quiet, just give us a shout.
    Charity football matches, charity singles and charity gigs are all going on, and we struggle to remember The Poll Tax, the hole in the ozone layer and other things that made the 80s terrible.
    The Monster Mash is BACK, as is me complaining about the lyrics. We ask whether musicians in the 80s worked out and give a shout out to the little known Austrian bodybuilder Arnold Schwarzenegger. 
    All this and Font Talk is back!

    PWM29: Kerrang 225 (Feb 11 1989) - How do you feel about panthers?

    Vixen are our cover stars in this issue, so the casual sexism starts early! WASP are celebrating their lead guitarist (who - spoiler alert, bails out of the band in 6 months time) and cranking out a Jethro Tull cover. There’s reports of secret Aerosmith gigs, so we may rebrand as a mystery podcast. We’ve got features on Quireboys (mostly drunk) and Gary Moore (mostly angry about Kingdom Come). Motley Crue are up to their usual antics and we look at some great listings for Shrapnel, Penpalz and Klassifieds. 
    News about Scott Ian gives us an excuse to use our Anthrax artwork! Residual anger over people talking at KISS concerts! Talking of KISS, Paul Stanley is (affectionately) mocked. Plus ASMR!

    PWM28: Better in Stereo

    PWM28: Better in Stereo

    In a change from the intended episode we don't even get to Kerrang in this one, but we do talk about Steve Wozniak, reminisce about Feeder's Just a Day, discover Feeder's Just a Day 2, remember the first lockdown and spin off into a conversation about Eurovision and our favourite entry ever from 2006, Lithuania's LT United with We Are The Winners. Also DEEP KUTZ brings us 1987 by Diamante, and we ask whether she's inspired by Stranger Things and/or Dazzler.
     
    Also the return of the moon controversy. Maybe think of this as a bonus episode?

    PWM 27: Kerrang 176 (Feb 27 1988) - Fresh Blood Could Kill Me

    PWM 27: Kerrang 176 (Feb 27 1988) - Fresh Blood Could Kill Me

    Kicking off a new year and a new podcast with yet more Gen Patter, as we question whether Gen Z are into Zorro, and wonder whether it’s too late in the game to change the name of the podcast. Simply Red are reappraised, despite not appearing in this week’s issue of Kerrang! However - we do get Atomkraft, WASP, The Accused, Dogs D’amour, Paul Sabu, and Zodiac Mindwarp. 
    Kommunikation features opposing views about Faith No More (still in their Chuck Mosely era) which somehow sends us off down a rabbit hole where we discuss Paris Jackson and Incubus. We ask is “Martha Splatterhead” a feminist trailblazer, and wonder about the state of digital watch technology in the early 80s.
    We lament questionable marketing for Aerosmith’s Honkin’ on Bobo and present our pitch for the Sabbat biopic. There’s big features on Motorhead (apparently Lemmy is proper into The Titanic) and Heart (which means I can bang on about Dream of The Archer again). We finish off with a new KWIZZ, which goes a lot better than the last time we tried a KWIZZ. 
    Also: Coronation Street!

    PWM 26 Bonus Episode: The Lost Picture Show

    PWM 26 Bonus Episode: The Lost Picture Show

    Like a Christmas Gift For You, but less problematic (thanks Phil!) here’s a very special BONUS podcast that we recorded way back in April.
    We basically spend this bonus episode promoting Reels Ov Steel, the Heavy Metal Movies podcast, who probably have way more listeners than we do, but what you gonna do? This led us to discuss what constitutes a good example of a metal movie. Can you make a case for something being metal just because you like it? We investigate. 
    We suggest a few movies that our pals at Reels Ov Steel have since covered, but that just means great minds think alike, right? Also you get our hot takes about cinematic masterpieces like Singles and Iron Man 2.
    Spoiler: Garden State is not a metal movie. 
    In addition we look at a few upcoming rock biopics and give our verdict on the value of movies that haven’t been released yet.

    PWM25: Xmas Blowout - Get drunk enough and it’ll be fine

    PWM25: Xmas Blowout - Get drunk enough and it’ll be fine

    Welcome to our Christmas Pod (for the third time). We thought we were done but then there was some IMPORTANT BREAKING KISS NEWS to cover (sorry... “kover”). Along the way we talk ABBA (obviously), The Millennium Dome, Spice Girls and horror movies that make you cry (or possibly just me). Damn you Guillermo Del Toro! 
     
    We attempt to delve into Kerrang’s Kerristmas Kwizz, but due to bad planning it doesn’t really work. At least it gives us an excuse to post a picture of Lisa Dominique looking sexual, as always. Talking of sexual, how do you like our new album art? Pretty sweet, right?
     
    There’s some Christmas DEEP KUTZ that aren’t very deep, grudging praise for the skills of the doctor from The Human Centipede, lots of Krampus talk and then the podcast cuts off before the end because our microphone batteries ran out. Ordinarily that should mean it all goes in the vault, but we thought what the hell put the pod out anyway, because nothing says end of term vibes like this absolute shambles. There’s some good clips though.
