 The Scratch Cast Podcast - Episode 08: “Scotland’s Greatest Podcast” | File Type: audio/mpeg | Duration: 01:08:53

This episode is a bit of a Frankenstein’s monster. Due to the lockdown, we had to record it via skype (which we did way back in April) and unfortunately, the majority of Snedds’ audio turned out to be awful. So… 90% of those parts were re-recorded and edited back in with Grant’s audio (which wasn’t too bad). This process took bloody ages! Please be understanding if the audio quality isn’t quite up to scratch but it seems to have actually turned out fairly well in the end. We’ve left in snippets of Snedds’ old audio here and there for comparison… On this episode, we discuss the singles “I Only Drink When I’m Drunk” by BC Camplight and “Annabelle” by Creeper and put forward our single swaps for the next episode: “Sand” by Belgian shoegaze punks Brutus and “Martin” by indie rock outfit Carseat Headrest. We also review The Big Moon’s sophomore album “Walking Like We Do”, the “Common Sense” EP from Scratch Cast favourites Viagra Boys, “Underneath” the fourth studio album from the genre-bending Code Orange and “Everything is A-OK” the oh so nostalgic fifth album from Australian alt. rockers Violent Soho.
