Episode 98: Black Mist - The Hell

April 30, 2021
 
In this episode I get a chance to chat to the outspoken mysterious recluse that is Black Mist vocalist with UK metal/hardcore legends The Hell. We talk Joris, social media storms and a whole load of other stuff. 
 
As usual I catch up on all the metal news from the past few weeks which covers the heartwarming to the heartbreaking and Mastermind. Added to that are the usual incoherent ramblings of a mind in collapse.

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.
