It's time for a catch up with the Mr Help You Out On Guitar of metal, Phil Demmel. This chat finds Phil on the Overkill tour bus as he helps fill in for them but don't be fooled, this is all about Vio-Lence and their return to releasing new stuff. In this case the EP Let The World Burn. We talk all about how the songs came together, how they made the progression from shitty live band to the super tight set up they are now and what the future holds for Phil as well as Vio-Lence.
There is also a review of some of the major and not so major news stories, a melting brain, and the word documentary gets used a lot for no reason.

In this episode I go a little left of centre from the usual band member or producer interview  and chat to THE Metal Mashup Master Bill McClintok. We talk about his early years in bands, learning and teaching guitar and his loathing of playing live. Most importantly he explains what makes a great mashup and what he looks for.  
 
As always I review the metal news but with a little bit of a twist this month and finally finish off with a tribute to one of my heroes.

In this episode I get chance to chat with someone I feel like I've known for ages. Chris and I have friends in common but this is the first time we've l talked and what an epic conversation we had! The whole Machine Head thing is covered, Attitude Adjustment past and upcoming rereleases and his new/old project, the legendary Boneless Ones. We even managed to squeeze in some drum chat.
On top of that there is the worst intro to one of these podcasts ever. So that is and isn't worth listening to.

In this two hour UK Thrash Metal special I get to catch up with old friends. Firstly Pete & Steve (insert ludicrous stage names here) from the pioneers of Mower Metal and heavy metal snails Lawnmower Deth. They have just released their first album since 1993, Blunt Cutters and we discuss how it came about, how and why it was recorded plus lots of  laughs and memories from back in the day.

Then it's on to another old friend with a newish album out and that is Phil De Sade of Holosade. This interview dates back to July 2021, just after the release of their comeback album Anastasis. We chat about piecing a new line up together, touring in a pandemic and also get to talk old times and Acid Reign stealing Mac their bass player. 

There is also the annual Howard's favourite top five albums of last year feature as well as the latest news including a judge owning Taylor Swift, good and not so good bay area comebacks and a mini Meat Loaf tribute. 

This Is Howard H Smith Action Figure Bollocks.

Episode 111: A Gay & A Non Gay

January 15, 2022
It's a new year and a new way to start it with a crossover Podcast. In this episode I chat with hosts of the award winning "A Gay & A Non Gay" podcast James Barr and Dan Hudson. Whilst we cover many topics and issues during this conversation the main subject is their BBC Documentary "Sashay To Hell" which documents their trip to Bloodstock Festival in 2021 that metal fan Dan took James to and the experience they had. Mainly I get stuck into them for not watching Acid Reign.
