The Scratch Cast Podcast - Episode 09: “All Bases Covered”

The Scratch Cast: The Alternative Music Podcast show

Summary: Episode 08 was a bit of a disaster but for Episode 09 of The Scratch Cast we had all bases covered and we’ve managed to capture audio and video seamlessly, well as seamlessly as Skype will allow… On this exciting episode, we discuss the singles “Sand” by Belgian shoegaze punks Brutus and “Martin” by indie outfit Carseat Headrest and we put forward our single swaps for the next episode: “Oceans” by Australian alt. rocker Peter Bibby (a name that Snedds can’t say without laughing) and “Broadcaster” by the hype machine’s next big thing: Squid. We also review the eponymous debut album from Empty Country, “Don’t Give A Rats”, the debut album from Dublin’s The Scratch, “Ronin”, the latest offering from Californian hardcore punks Rotting Out, and a unique compilation project in the form of “Sounds Like Van Spirit: A Collection of Europe’s Pavement Melodies”.
