In this episode I got chance to catch up with my old mate, the legend that is Malcolm Dome. He has been a regular over the years and we always find so much to talk about and this time was no different. We cover a myriad of topics but make no mistake they all come back to metal. The whole interview is available on YouTube too link below. 

There are also the usual mix of near nervous breakdown rants, recommendations, apologies, good news, bad news, suggestions and appeals. Throw in some tangents and unintentional comedy and you have yourself a Bollocast.

In this extra long double interview I catch up with my mate Miles Hackett of BMG. Miles is the man behind the Noise Records re-releases and all the Motorhead anniversary editions too. We talk pandemics, music and fandom. Then six months later we had another chat this time more about Motorhead and how we came up with The Motörcast.

Added to this are some more of the high quality impressions you are becoming used to, a one person discussion about the rights and wrongs of public accusations and the usual news catch up, rag tag bunch of utterances and gibberish that you have come to expect.

This was fun! I finally got chance to catch up with long lost friend and metal brother CJ. Our paths first crossed many years ago as you will hear. You'll also hear all about what The Wildhearts are planning, solo records and our favourite subject of all...... Knaresborough. 

Combined with a rare collection of metal stories ripped straight from the headlines you get a full review of what old people in metal are up to, some top tips and what Sepultura would have been like if they had come from Yorkshire.

In the first podcast of the year I catch up with Aaron for the first time since June 23rd 1988 so as you can imagine there's a lot to catch up on!  We discuss the bands rise to fame, it's vast 26 album catalogue and what it takes to keep a band together for that length of time. 

There is also a round up of selected news stories, rebukes for Gene Simmons, a frighteningly realistic Mustaine impression (it's like he's in the room) and the usual collection of tangents, rants and forgetfulness. All rounded off with my top 5 albums of 2020 and a top tip for 2021.

We talk about his early career and starting out in punk with a garage studio, the band that he felt he had to leave College for and his role in the creation of some of the most important Death, punk and thrash albums ever made.

In this episode I catch up with vocal coach to the stars and me, Beth Roars. We get into singing techniques, metal singers, what makes some singers so special and is there such thing as a natural. I also make some admissions about my own singing career and confess to how criticism early on stuck with me for years. 

There is also the usual collection of news snippets, more confessions, incoherent jibberings and general tangents that you have come to expect from a Bollocast.

In this Bollocast I had chance to finally catch up with Moose as we seemed to have missed each other over the years. We talk Kill The Lights debut album, how he got back playing music again and walking away from Bullet. 

Next up comes an interview that has been in the vaults a while. Sean Lambe was one of the producers of Saigon Metalhood: Vietnam's Heaviest Story. It's an eye opening look into one of the worlds most vibrant an unknown scenes. 

Added to this are the usual news, reviews, warnings and rants about things that don't really matter. Lockdown starts to show it's effects, Finland gets a shout out and and phrases are questioned.
