Podcast #2: Dinosaurs and Drunken Disasters

Dinosaurs, songs to go down to, regrettable drunken incidents and the origins of a rubber skull. Episode 2 available now!

Episode 2 of the Shout Louder Podcast is now available! You can now find it on iTunes and Soundcloud, or you can listen through the link below.

What’s Sarah’s most regrettable drunk-at-a-gig incident? What’s Mark’s ‘death song’? What’s the deal with Dugstock’s Dug mascot? What’s Mark’s favourite dinosaur? You will soon find out.

We’ve got music from PMX, Stabbed In Back, Aerial Salad, Lesdystics and Harsh Realms. We talk in detail about Dugstock 2 (Umlaut Records’ 3-day festival over the Easter Weekend). Mark finds a decent song to go down to. Sarah gets overly excited, plays some random songs and misprounces a lot of words.

Sarah talks about a gig she recently attended at The Old Courts in Wigan, with Speed Dinosaurs, The Mighty Bossmags, Fair Do’s, Roughneck Riot and The Crash Mats. Mark gives a concise, organised description of his current Top 5 favourite bands, while Sarah goes off on a variety of unnecessary tangents. Mark convinces Sarah to share the drunkest gig incident she most regrets (spoiler: we’re not talking about Punk Rock Holiday, let’s forget that night ever happened). Here’s a clue:
