The Scratch Cast Podcast - Episode 16: “A Mixed Bag of Squits”

The Scratch Cast: The Alternative Music Podcast show

Summary: The Scratch Cast - The Alternative Music Podcast - Episode 16 “A Mixed Bag of Squits” 2nd June 2021 It's been a while since our last episode but Episode 16 of The Scratch Cast is finally here and with a slight re-brand. We’re now “The Alternative Music Podcast” which means we talk about nothing but music… a rule Snedds casually breaks before the episode is out. In this episode, Grant treats himself to a whisky, Snedds makes yet another Jamie Lenman reference and talks about cardboard mazes and both discuss the finer points of drinking too much cordial… oh and of course we review some new music… On our singles swap this month we subject ourselves to the experimental hardcore of “The Armed” and the apocalyptic acoustic folk of “Elliot Pullen”. In the next episode, we’ll be discussing “Omega Water” by “Lonewolves in Paradise” and “Unsmart Lady” by “Dry Cleaning”. On “submission corner” we cover two releases from Ripcord Records: “Kintsukuroi” from Chilean metal band “La Bestia De Gevaudan” and the “Anatomy EP” from Aberdeen’s own “Seas, Starry”. If you’ve got something you want us to hear then make sure you hit us up via the contact page, on Facebook, Instagram and Twitter or via email at And, as if that wasn’t enough, we also review music written by artificial intelligence with “Lost Tapes of The 27 Club”, the massive collaborative ska-punk extravaganza “The First One” from “Andy B & The World”, “Cover to Cover” the all-Scottish-all-female cover album curated by Edinburgh-based musician Fiona Liddell and “Haram” the latest, bewilderingly complex art-rap release from “Armand Hammer & The Alchemist”.
