This is a special episode of the Shout Louder Punk Podcast, delving deep into the history of Tim Loud. This anti-folk hero is calling time on his solo career, so we reflected on ten years of touring and six releases.
I’m particularly proud of this episode. It’s a rare opportunity to hear a truly honest, in-depth account of what it’s like to grow in the DIY music community. From folk and blues roots, through speed and valium trials on the road, to recovery and recuperation – Tim Loud gives us an open account of how he’s developed both as a musician and as a person.
This isn’t the end for Tim Loud: he plans to focus his creative energy on his new band Terrorpins. October 2022 is your last chance to see him touring as a solo artist, though. Get off your sofa and down to one of his shows, it’ll be a special experience.

We played several tracks throughout the podcast, one from each of Tim Loud’s major releases:
- No Gods, No Masters from the Tim Loud EP (2012)
- Not A Number from Born To Lose (2014)
- I Don’t Care What Everyone Else Says About You, I Think You’re A Cunt from What Am I? (2016)

- Things That Matter single (2019)
- Teachers from 3 Songs single collection (2022)
Tim wrote a detailed track-by-track description of Salvation for Shout Louder back in 2018. It’s a fascinating read.
I’ll see you down the front!
